Rise 360 Access to Learners: Shareable Web Link versus Hosting on Web Server
I am newly using Articulate Rise 360. I've just reviewed this article to understand how to share a course with learners: https://articulate.com/support/article/How-to-Share-Articulate-Rise-Courses-with-Learners
I will not be using an LMS, so the options are to share the web link or to host it on a web server. I've found additional resources for how to do so with Amazon S3 and Cloudberry.
Regarding the option of just sharing a web link, the above article states,
"Viewing a course via a shareable link is not a long-term hosting solution. And a shared course doesn’t track your learners’ progress. When they leave and come back, they have to start all over.
We recommend you export your course to an LMS or a permanent web host for the best learner experience."
Yet, for the permanent web host, it also states that you can't track learners' progress, so what is the difference/pros/cons of hosting it on a web server?
Thank you so much in advance.
