Publishing a captivate project without an LMS

I am using a Captivate 2019 trial to see if it will suit the needs of my school.

I have created a basic project and now want to publish and share with students to see how they find it. When publishing I presume I just publish to computer and share, however this is then just showing as a blank screen when opened by others.

Am I missing something? We don't use an LMS, just share files through MS SharePoint.

Thanks for any help provided,

Daniel.

A couple things here.

  1. It does work best if you can get the project out on a webserver for others to access. You would need to point them to the index.html file found in the folder that is created upon publish. Perhaps your district has some webspace they can place the files for you...? Otherwise- there are some other web sources out there that you can use for free under a limited scope.
  2. Since you are using a trial version - depending on how long ago you installed it, and how much time you spent in development - the project will expire and no one will be able to view it until it is published with a licensed copy so you'll want to act quickly to maximize the amount of time others can view it.
  3. I am not familiar with SharePoint to offer any suggestions that might address quirks in how to share a Captivate project.

 

Hope this helps.

One of tthe problems with Sharepoint is the support of JSON lacking. Maybe have a look at:

Published files from a trial version will expire after 30 days.
