Using Amazon S3 Service as a Course Platform
Nov 19, 2015
I have read Tom K.'s blog post on using Amazon S3 (as well as Dropbox, Google, etc) and Ashley T.'s reply to a forum thread on the use of S3 with another Articulate product (not SL2). I downloaded Cloudberry and installed it, set up an Amazon S3 account, created a bucket, and uploaded a test course to S3 and tried to run it using the web link from Cloudberry-- nothing happened.
FYI, I published the course to Web and checked the "Include HTML5 Output", "Use AMP for Android/iOS" and "Allow downloading for off-line viewing" boxes.
I used Cloudberry to upload the entire Story Output file (mobile and story_content folders plus the 7 environment files). I selected the "story.html" file as the launch point and obtained the URL with Cloudberry.
I tried running the program with that URL and only get a blank screen on my browser (Firefox). (But I get the same behavior with Internet Explorer.)
Although Tom's instructions in his blog post were good, there were apparently a lot of missing steps as when I tried to replicate his instructions, I found options arising that were not mentioned in his blog.
I don't know whether my problem is with permissions (I set Amazon S3 Anyone for reading and for the story.html file set permissions to Everyone Open/Download).
Any ideas, team?
