Media heavy course crashing.
I am hoping someone will be able to advise me on an issue I have encountered. I am tasked with re-designing a course we currently deliver as the current format appears to be problematic.
The course is currently loaded directly onto a group of laptops which are then transported around specific locations as the staff must take the course under test environment with an invigilator. This is necessary as not all of the staff sitting have access to our LMS.
The problem we are having is the course in question which was designed on Storyline 2 has a large media content which appears to cause it to encounter crashing issues when running, when the course was designed in house and previewed on the office systems it worked fine so I assume the issue is with the laptops themselves. I am looking to make a business case to get updated laptops but in case this is not accepted I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions?
Currently all the mp4 files are published within the course itself so I was thinking about the possibility of hosting the videos on a media server and just embedding a link but there is some doubt within the team as to whether that would alleviate the issue.
Any help from the community in this area is greatly appreciated.
