Step 2. Upload content to your iSpring Cloud account
You can upload content to your account either from iSpring authoring tools or via a browser.
Uploading from the iSpring tools
If you create courses and quizzes using iSpring tools, the easiest way to upload them to iSpring Cloud is to publish them directly, right from the publishing window.
Open your presentation in PowerPoint, switch to the iSpring tab and click on Publish.
In the new Publish Presentation window, switch to the iSpring Cloud tab, enter your account details, and click Publish.

Uploading via a browser
You can also upload an ordinary PowerPoint presentation. To do that:
Log in to your iSpring Cloud account and click on Upload.
Select a presentation from your hard drive and click on Open.
After being uploaded, a presentation is automatically converted to a cross-platform Flash+HTML5 format. It means that your presentation will be viewable on all devices and in all browsers, including their old versions.
Using the web interface, you can also upload text documents, audio and video files, images, and much more. Learn more about supported file formats >
Step 3. Share your content
After you’ve uploaded your materials, you can share them with the learners. This option is available both in the Repository and in the presentation view window.
Select the desired content item and click on the Share link next to it.
Now you can choose your preferred method of content sharing.
You can simply copy a public link to the course and send it to your learners any way you like.
It is also possible to directly publish courses to social media using the hot buttons on the bottom of the Sharing pop-up window.
To send a link to the course via email, switch to the Email tab and enter an email address or several addresses separated with commas.
Embed a presentation in a website or blog. To do that, switch to the Embed Code tab, copy the code and insert it into the code of your web page.

How to limit access to content viewing
A content item you open access to is available for anyone with the link. If you need to limit access, simply switch the toggle button. When off, link access is not available.
If you want to open access only to a limited group of people, set up a password. This way, you will be able to provide the password only for those learners who have successfully completed a previous course.
In the Sharing window, switch to the Content Protection tab, turn on password protection, and click on the Set password link. When ready, click on Save changes.
After the changes are saved, the presentation will be available only for those with the password.
Here’s what the users will see after opening the link to a protected content item:
Try entering the password Pass00 to access the presentation.
Materials protected with a password can also be embedded via iframe. Please note that only those users who get access from you will be able to view them. You can change the password anytime and fully control access to courses. Read more about content protection options in iSpring Cloud
