Is there a way for students to upload a file in Storyline
My training course involves having students do some lab work off-line from the course, and then submit some files showing the lab results. What I envision is a slide in Storyline that has four upload text boxes that contain the names of files the students need to upload with their results. Each upload text box would have a button next to it that would open a file browser on their computer that allows selecting a file. The file selected would be automatically filled into the text box. After the boxes are filled in, clicking on a "submit" button would upload the files to a server at my company, and notify the instructor via an e-mail that the files are available.
Has anyone done something similar to this? I would greatly appreciate any ideas on:
1) How to best have students submit files from within Storyline.
2) How to have a button action send an e-mail message to a specific person.
A couple factors that might come into play: First, this training will be for customers, meaning the students submitting lab files will be outside of my company. Second, the training will be made available via an LMS. My company is still evaluating LMS options, so nothing is in place yet. I would like to keep this Storyline course independent of any specific LMS, both so that I can test things before the LMS is in place, and to allow flexibility on what LMS will eventually be used.
