Four Ways to Protect Your Content with iSpring

As a content developer, you put hard work into your courses and presentations. You are then able to post them on the Internet to share with the entire world. Unfortunately, it can be easy for others to take and use your content in ways you did not intend. You may want to limit access to your course to paid subscribers, students enrolled in your course, or members of your company, or you may simply want to protect your work from being stolen or plagiarized. In whatever way you need to secure your intellectual property, the protection features in iSpring are available to help you do it.

iSpring provides multiple ways of protecting content. You can add a watermark to each slide to permanently identify it, and you can even link the watermark to your organization’s website. You can set up a password that users must enter before they are able to view the course. You can restrict the time that a course is available so that it will only open before or after a chosen date or within a chosen date range. Finally, you can restrict the domain so that your course will only open on a certain website or list of websites.

All four methods of securing content can be found in the same window. First, create your course in PowerPoint using the iSpring add-on. When you are ready to publish your course, you have the option to set protective limits.
