What is easiest method to share Storyline & Rise portfolio?

Hello,

I found some threads about this topic but I am looking for more current advice. 

I would like to share several course samples that can be launched online (outside of LMS).  I gather that some used DropBox in the past but launching html content from DB is no longer possible. 

What is the simplest way(s) to make a portfolio accessible online. I am not a web designer and do not want to create a full-blow website at this point. Ideally I’d like to provide an http address to specific people that will launch the index.html file within the course folder. 

Thanks!

One of the ways you can share your portfolio is by uploading your examples to your profile here on the E-Learning Heroes website.

I know you aren't keen on building a website but if I were you I would definitely consider making even a single page site to house your examples. It's a competitive market and you're working in a tech-based industry so having a website of some description should prove to be beneficial.

There is some info here about uploading to the web and a handful of hosting servies are listed: https://articulate.com/support/article/Storyline-360-Publishing-and-Sharing-Content#web

If your selling your services you should have a portfolio page, I don't think an Elearning portfolio is that professional (sorry David).

The industry you work in most clients will expect a professional looking portfolio. A simple Wordpress site using a plugin to host the content is cheap and easy to set up.

No worries Phil, I completely agree. 😊

So, where do you store your sample content for the website?

Thank you Holley, David, Phil, and Crystal for all of your great thoughts and ideas!  I am pretty new to Articulate but I have to say this community is amazing!  

I was able to put together a short-term approach using your advice.  I loaded my samples onto Google Cloud and created a Storyline module with links to the work samples.  This takes care of an immediate need I have.  Now I bought a domain name and I am looking at different alternatives for creating a website for longer-term use.

Again, thank you so much for everyone's advice!

Bravo, Brent!  Getting that first portfolio solution together is a huge step forward.  Now you are in a good place to put together the next iteration for future needs, when time permits.

In case it might be helpful, here is the approach I'm using:

I built a site for my consulting business using a Wix template, with links to interactive samples / full modules that are hosted on Amazon S3. 

The Amazon S3 part is a bit fiddly to figure out initially, but has been rock-solid (and dirt cheap, i.e., free).

The Wix part is "good enough," but in hindsight, I might've chosen a site platform with fully-responsive templates.  

If you decide to go that route, and need any assistance, feel free to reach out -- I'd be happy to share what I know.

(Main thing I've learned -- treat my site as a "continuous improvement project":  I calendar time every week to think of ways to improve it, and to QA all the links, etc., to  make sure it is (relatively) ship-shape.)
