Tutorial: Updating Hyperlinks Without Republishing a Storyline Course
Aug 25, 2016
Have you ever had to edit, republish and re-upload a Storyline course because some of the hyperlinks had broken?
Maybe you develop eLearning courses for organisations who like to move resources around, you know, to be better organised or whatever, without realising the impact this has on those who are linking to those resources?
While you don't want to frustrate your learners by linking to resources that are unavailable, it can be incredibly time consuming to check and update thousands of hyperlinks, especially if this process involves manually editing, republishing and re-uploading all of your eLearning courses.
In this tutorial we will look at how to create hyperlinks that can be updated at a later stage without editing the published course.
And if you are interested in taking this a step further, we'll dig deeper in a follow-up series, where you'll learn a delightful little trick that will speed up the process of checking all of your courses for broken hyperlinks.
While it will take a little longer to set up the hyperlinks initially, the time savings down the track make this a no brainer. Especially for those who have a large amount of courses to maintain.
Let me know if you have any questions, comments or are stuck with implementing any of this. I'm happy to help where I can.
