How to Publish Interactive Learning Objects

Most videos are linear.  The user interacts with the content being presented and has some control over its presentation: play, pause, rewind, etc. 

In some cases, you may need to publish a non-linear, interactive tutorial or PowerPoint presentation.  Software recommendations for creating the content are below, although this list is not all-inclusive.  

Instead of uploading these files to the MC media server, you will need to request file storage space and upload the content using FTP software.  Please e-mail for more information and assistance.
