How to Install the Cloud App


The Brainshark Cloud App is already available for use in E10, but may need to be enabled.


See here for more information.


Using the Component on a Landing Page


     A Cloud Component is inserted into a landing page via drag and drop within the landing page editor.


     From the editor toolbar, select the "Cloud Components" button.  A select box containing all of the available Cloud Components will then be displayed.



Drag and Drop the Brainshark Embed component onto the landing page:



Next, save the page, then double-click the icon that you just dropped onto the page.  The following screen will appear:


Enter your credentials and log in.


Next, a page will display that will ask for your Eloqua credentials (Note: the credentials entered MUST be for an API enabled Eloqua account).



Once the details are entered, click Go, and the configuration screen for the Brainshark Embed component will then be displayed:



On the configuration screen, do the following:

Enter your:

      • Brainshark Username
      • Brainshark Password
      • Brainshark Company Name


Click Get Presentations


If you have entered your Brainshark credentials correctly, your presentations will show up in the Presentation drop-down list.


Finally, select a Presentation from the list, and choose an Embed Size.


Note:  you will have to play with the size of the component on the landing page to make your presentation fit


To help with this, here are the actual dimensions for the different size options:




Click on Save Settings and close the Configuration screen.


Now, render the landing page, and you will see your Brainshark Embed presentation on the page where you placed it.



When a  known Eloqua contact visits the landing page and views the video, the component will pass viewer data to Brainshark.  This data will then be included in your presentation reporting in the Brainshark system.
