How to host SL work samples?

Mar 07, 2013


I am just wondering how I can publish my SL portfolio for prospective job leads to have a look? I don't feel comfortable sending them my SL files because of propriety information and I don't have a website yet.

Any help or suggestions would be awesome!

Hey Karen!

Tempshare is the easiest and breeziest way, but it will automatically delete your content after 10 days (which may or may not be a good thing, depending on how long the hire process is). 

Alternatively, if you don't have access to a web server, you can sign up for a free Amazon S3 account. Then simply upload your published output to your account, and give your users the link to your online course.

Hope that's helpful

Hi Karen

Both of the above options will allow you to share only your published course, in an online environment. The end-user will have no access to your source files.

The difference is Tempshare requires no registration, and is completely free, but the unique link it gives you will no longer be valid after 10 days. 

Whereas Amazon S3 is a sign-up subscription service that will require you to provide the link to your content yourself by uploading the necessary files, and your content will remain active for as long as you wish.

Hi Karen,

The magician who put that together operates on a different plane than I, so I'm afraid I don't have any insight to share. 

And while it's not officially Articulate-supported or related, it was built by an Articulate engineer, so the files you upload will be kept strictly confidential, I have no doubt. 

Glad it's working for you

Hi Karen, 

I'm not affiliated with Amazon S3 in any way, nor am I a customer, so I'm not really in a position to advise on their services. Are they asking for a credit card to keep on file in case you go over your free limits, perhaps? 

Looks like you'll have to cancel the free service after 12 months or you enter "pay-as-you-go" territory, hence the credit card...
