Hi everyone! I have been given the opportunity to create a demo (more like a tutorial) of one of the software products I write for. I have decided to use Captivate (downloaded the 30-day trial for now) but what I am looking for now are some tips and tricks on creating a good demo. I would like to see some example scripts (I have to write the script and speak it) and storyboards. I have been googling for all of these things but I have not been finding too much (except for lots of tips for scripts and storyboards for Hollywood - I guess I am using the wrong terminology).

Does anyone have any links or information they could share with me?

Thank you!
