Storyline published for CD

I need to be able to have my course available for users without internet access.  In the course are several links to pdf worksheets.  When I do the "publish for cd" feature to a file on my computer desktop and disconnect from the internet, the files do not come up. What do I need to do?  I tried putting the files in a folder on the desktop and linking to it, but that didn't work either.  Help, please???

It's working now on my laptop offline,although the first click doesn't work until I refresh the page. Can someone tell me what I need to do to get the pdf's to show on my ipad if not connected to the internet?  How do users access these if they can't connect? Even having turned on the access offline button didn't make it work :(.  THANKS!

It works, just has to be tweaked.  The pdf's don't just show.  I have to refresh IE and sometimes click the link again, but then it does work and all the other pdfs come right up.

Yes, I am using the Articulate mobile player and it works fine as long as I'm connected to the internet, but when I disconnect the links to pdf don't work...probably because the ipad uses safari.

Hi Sylvia,

If you published for CD, can you share more about how you loaded the content onto your iPad and the Mobile player? The iPad and Mobile player is designed to play content from an LMS or web server and then the links to your resources would be hosted in that environment as well. If you're copying the published CD files to your iPad in a custom way, that wouldn't be something we'd be able to offer support for, but certain things such as opening the files may be an element that won't work as you'd expect.

Let us know if we're missing the mark on your set up, or if there is anything else we can help with.

They could access on the AMP for offline, but they'd have to have Wifi access to first download the course. Look at publishing to Web as well, and then you'd need to upload to a web server for them to access and download the course. 

If you do come up with any other creative ideas, please let us know! I suspect there may be others in our community looking to do the same as you!

My problem is similar. I am making a learning activity for a youth in custody group who are not allowed internet access period. 

When I publish for CD, there is an email option.    Does this mean that I could email the completed project to myself and from my email put it on the local hard drive?  Is that how the email function works?
