YOUR THOUGHTS PLEASE - Using documents inside elearning - embed vs linking

May 26, 2017

When designing elearning we sometimes include links to documents. From a functionality perspective, these can either be embedded inside the Storyline course or held somewhere else and linked to from the Storyline course. 

I know there are pros and cons to each method but was wondering what other people tend to do (and why) as we want to try and come up with a standardised way of doing it in the company I work for (internal L&OD function)

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Alway s a problem. If they are documents that do not change then i would recommend to clients they are stored inside of the Storyline course. If they are Policies, SOPs or important documents that are reviewed and changed regularly and the link remains the same on the web/intranet of the organisation I would recommend linking. If however the link changes then I would embed and ensure the organisation has regular review dates for the learning.
