Hi all, this is my first Captivate project and there are some aspects to publishing that I can't get clear in my mind from the online information.
I'm aiming to create an e-learning module which contains some embedded MP4 video content (which my team will create) as well as interactive text.
Publishing -- the aim is twofold: 1) to embed the module within an existing company web page 2) have a stand-alone URL on the company web site (e.g. www.company.org/.../e-learning-module.html
Looking at Captivate online guidance, I can see the two options: 1) 'Publish for devices' 2) 'Publish to Adobe Connect'
What I don't understand is -- 1) 'Publish for devices' : what does this create, exactly? An .html file that could be embedded within a web page, or uploaded to a server at a dedicated URL, as I require? i.e. it's not publishing online, is it, but publishing as in 'project is finished'? I can't see any URL-definitions in the screenshots -- and Adobe don't host anything with this publishing option, do they?
I just need to be clear how users access the module online.
2) 'Publish to Adobe Connect' -- I can see there's a URL-definition element to this option, but what is this, exactly? Does Adobe Connect host the content at an Adobe URL, to be sorted out / purchased separately? I don't understand what the options are with this, or the practicalities.

Due to the options you are mentioning, I know you are talking about a responsive project, Fluid Boxes workflow.
Publish to devices will create a folder with several subfolders, but having an index.html file included. You need to upload that folder just like a website to a webserver (which supports JSON) or a LMS (if you have reporting turn on, which I suspect is not the case). You can embed in another webpage using an iFrame, pointing to the URL. I use this method on my blog if I want to embed a tutorial. But those are non-responsive projects, published as Scalable HTML. Have no experience with responnsive projects....
Fantastic, thank you!
