Publishing Storyline to CD

Dec 17, 2012

I have a student who is without internet, thus cannot log into our LMS to complete posted SCORM package.  I am trying to publish to CD, but beyond clicking on Publish to CD.  I'm lost as to what to do next. 

I want the student to be able to complete the lesson from the CD.  Which leads me to another question?  How do I receive the results from what is completed?  Is there something that the student could print out? 

Or am I misunderstanding the purpose of the publishing to CD and it is not meant for these purposes?

I am also attempting to transfer the files to CD though when I open the finished file, for some reason I can't seem to expand the player screen which makes it difficult to see some of the course content. Am I doing something wrong or is there a way to simply increase the size of the screen? When I've published courses on the web I've simply changed the size settings when uploading so that I can control the screen size. Would be grateful for any advice!

Hi G!

Articulate Storyline lets you control several aspects of the browser and player for your published course, including:
*  The size of the browser window
*  Whether the course stays locked at the same size or lets learners scale it by adjusting the size of their browser windows
*  Whether the course launches in a separate window and, if so, the properties of that window
See this tutorial for details.
Hello Hello1

Thank you Leslie!  I've now been able to change the player size.

I am planning on publishing 12 small courses (they only contain images, no audio etc.) on one CD. However, this is creating a lot of files on the CD which may be confusing to the user. I know it's been suggested by another poster that the files can simply be saved into a subfolder and then a short link provided to the exe. files. Is there any way of completely hiding the 'extra' files from users as they only need to see the exe. files to launch the course.
