Here are some checklists to follow as you import courses from Presenter to Storyline:

  • Once you import a Presenter course into Storyline it is likely that certain fonts/sizes, alignments, etc., go missing. This is because the default articulate font is applied.
  • Animations may also be given the default options such as fade in and fade out.
  • If you would like your course to support TINCAN API, you will be able to do so with courses converted into Articulate Storyline.
  • In case the course developed in Presenter has interactivities, notice that they are shown according to Layers. This needs to be rectified.
  • In Articulate Presenter, the final quiz is shown on a single slide. However, in Articulate Storyline it’s shown in individual slides along with a result slide.

You will need to complete the course edits with respect to the above aspects and then click the publish button in the home tab. Your new course is published in a format that is compatible to mobile devices. Do let me know if these suggestions were helpful.
