Technical Question: How do published courses use bandwidth?
Jun 08, 2017
Hi all - I know there are a lot of people here with way more technical expertise than me so I'm hoping y'all can help shed some light on something.
How exactly do published courses use bandwidth when loaded from an LMS or intranet?
Which assets in the output folder add to the size of a published zip the most?
The reason I ask is that a few recent clients complain about laggy courses with large images in their output folders spiking their bandwidth. The courses are under 100mb (which, for being as media heavy and long as they are, is pretty good I think), and the largest image asset is under 400 kb. So what is spiking their bandwidth? What is causing the lag? How exactly does a course load and function, how does it allocate bandwidth, etc???
I want to better understand this side of things for when clients come at us with these sorts of questions and issues. I have to at least kind of sound like I know what I'm talking about :-p
Any insight would be much appreciated!!
