One of the biggest weaknesses of e-Learning is the dependence on an internet connection to make materials available to your students. In this tutorial, we’re going to find out how to solve that problem by making online courses available for offline viewing by using iSpring Suite to publish it to an online format. Now, we’ll publish it directly to iSpring Cloud for this example, because that’s actually the easiest way to share your courses online.
Naturally, you can use your own website if you want, but just remember that a standard sharing service like Dropbox won’t host live courses; just the files and check the iSpring Play option. It lets people use iSpring Play free mobile app, and save this course right on their mobile device, so they can access it anytime, even without an internet connection.
So now we’ll go ahead and publish, and just wait a few moments while the course is uploaded to iSpring Cloud. Now that it’s up, we just got to go over here and make sure that downloading is enabled, and then you can go ahead and share your course with this link, social media, email, or on your website with this embed code. So this is what it’ll look like when you open it up on a mobile device.
You’re notified that it’ll open in the mobile app, and there we go. It’s added to the library on the left, and you can play it by tapping the play button. We’ll just navigate through a few slides. Looks pretty good! Now we’ll go back, and as you can see here, there’s a little download button right up here, and when you tap it, the course will be downloaded right to the device.
Now, as you can see, it’s placed in a little separate location here that contains all your downloaded stuff, and if you want, you can remove it with this button to save space on your device. Don’t worry, it’s still in your library, but you will need an internet connection to view it. Now, your students can take their courses anywhere, anytime, even with no signal, whether they’re going through a tunnel, climbing a mountain, or flying to Mars.
