Congrats on your first mini project, works well.
Only things I would 'slightly change are...
Preloader - Try to create your own, the .fla files are in the Gallery folder. I think its always much better having a logo of your company rather than the default Captivate .swf. Also change the preloader percentage to be 50% or so, so it'll start quicker and then loading in the other screens in the background.
On the intro/summary pages, perhaps they're a straight import from Powerpoint ? I would split the text up so it appears one second after another. To me its better than 'wham' and it all appears at once. I prefer (And a lot of customers) for the text/graphics to build up.
But it looks very good, I would copy the code and change it to a 'try me' (So the user has to click the options) as that should impress your manager and give them ideas for future training or the possibilities ?
Thanks for your feedback. I will go and create a pre-loader, I have been a little lazy on that one, but your right :-)
Yes it was a direct import from PowerPoint. I find for the slides, Powerpoint is so quick and simple to place, and looks professional, where as I dont like how Captivate does not offer the same smooth feel for creating slides, everything seems to feel like the long way round, compared to powerpoint, and I love using the office theme gallery on the net to grab things and put them in as needed.
However that could be greatly biased, as I have not used Captivate to do projects as such, only for the capturing side of things.
You make a good point about the "click me to try" option also. In this case it is purely a small version, of what will become some day a large version, but it is a very good point, and I shall do this in my next one, as I have yet to use this option properly
