Hi All!

I've found myself in the unique situation where I need to self-publish Captivate modules as a demo for my website viewers.

I have a simple website that I coded using Bootstrap that is hosted on Namecheap. I was told by an Adobe Captivate rep that I could not simply upload the HTML files as it wouldn't work. I have also looked into other options like SCORM cloud, but it seems you have to invite people individually using their email address.

I've seen other instructional designers host samples on what seem to be personal websites, but I am not sure how.

Has anyone published their Adobe Captivate lessons to Namecheap (or a similar self-hosted site) so that web visitors can view and interact with the demo?

I would think that publishing to HTML as a normal set of files (not SCORM) should work just fine. That's how the HTML preview works.

Make sure you copy the entire published set of folders/files to your web server.

Thank you! I think you're right...I was just concerned that the Adobe rep told me it wouldn't work. I'll give it a try and monitor it in case any problems arise...Thanks!

For my blog, which has often embedded HTML output from Captivate, I upload the folders to my domain, and link tto the index.html file in an iFrame in the blog.

Hi thank you! That's a great idea. Currently my web visitors have to click a separate link to access the content. I'll have to try this with my next product!
