Is there any easy way to share Articulate Storyline .swf files?

Nov 29, 2012

I have made some projects with Articulate Storyline and when I have published the projects, they have become in the form of files in a folder (including story.swf, story.html, meta.xml, and a story-content folder for each project). I do not currently have a website, is there any way that I can convert/publish my articulate storyline files easily as a single .swf file to share with others, instead of sending the whole project folder as a zipped file to them? (I tried sending the .swf file alone, but that does not work since the file needs to be accompanied by all the other files in the folder). Also, is there any free website/web spaces that I can upload my storyline projects there?

Hi Edelweiss,

Meryem is correct. If you don't have a Dropbox account it's easy to set up and free. Every account has a default folder titled, "Public." In that folder you can create as many folders (directories) as you wish. Simply create a folder and give it name similar to your course. Then push all your output to that location: One folder = story_content, and Three files: story.swf, meta.xml, and story.html. Once you get them all in there, select the story.html file and a small chain icon will appear. Click on it and it will show you how to share the direct link to that file by copying it or sending it via email. 

The other option which may be quicker is to use Articulate's Temp Share > It's a temporary repository to share projects. However, if I'm not mistaken each project has a 10-day period and then it will be deleted. Guess that's why they call it "Temp"

Good luck.
