I hope there are other answers, as I'd like to know about this too.
From what I know though, here are your choices: 1)Toolbook by
Asymmetrix 2)Authorware by Macromedia 3)Director by Macromedia,
developing on a Mac but using a Windows player.
So far, the best software for writing interactive documents or
multimedia/interactive documents seems to be on the Mac. Toolbook
is somewhat lame, a lot like Supercard for the Mac, a beefed up
and klutzed up version of HyperCard. Authorware is great but
with a steep learning curve and expensive. Director is good but
you have to develop on the Mac side and then use a Windows player.
