how to publish a storyline tutorial to "Blackboard"

Hi, I am a Graduate Student and have developed a stodyline tutorial for one of my professors.   He would like to have the tutorial posted in Blackboard (our school discussion board) so that all of his students can watch the tutorial.   He would like to have a link to the tutorial, from his syllabus.    What's the appropriate format to save the storyline file and send it to him, so that the file becomes available to all students?     Thank you so much!   Paula

Paula,

A published file consists of many files in more than one folder.  It sounds like you can publish to web, but you will need to place it on a web server in order for it to run appropriately (web servers deliver web pages in an html format).  Once you have it in place, you can provide the web link to anyone through e-mail, syllabus, or whatever.

Josh, so should I FTP my tutorial (the folder with all of the files) to the University server?  Sorry, I know it might sound silly, but I have never done it before...

That should work.  I suggest asking around and find someone who has done something similar.  Keep in mind that you want to post the published files for viewing (people want to run the presentation), not just for sharing the files (you don't want to force people to copy the files to their own computer from the FTP server).

Thanks so much, Josh!
