SimTor is an easy authoring tool for creating interactive application-courses.
It supports the development-workflow (scripting, capturing and adding interaction). The result is an xml-database, bitmaps and a flash-engine. The tool is writen in python, apart from the flash-engine, which will be available in swf and actionscript code. The current release is 0.4 and is usable to create content.

The project deliverables are a tool (simtor) that supports the workflow in creating (application) simulation trainings and an engine that interpeters the data generated with this tool, so the simulation is playable (showme and practise cases) via the Internet or stand alone (with flash player). The supported workflow can be devided in four steps:

1. Creating a step by step description of the interaction steps of the simulation (caseflows). 2. Add specific data to the created caseflows (cases) 3. Capture the screens, which are described in the case(flow)s 4. Specify the hotspots, adding interaction, which results in an almost reality feeling of the simulated application.

As described earlier the tool is written in Python and the interpreter is written in actionscript (compiled into flash).
