  • *.quiz (Quizmaker quizzes)
  • *.intr (Engage interactions)

Which versions of Storyline and Studio do I need to publish content for

To import content into, you need to publish SCORM packages. Since Adobe discontinued Flash at the end of 2020, you also need to publish HTML5 output. Therefore, you can use Storyline 360, Storyline 3, and Studio 360, which support both SCORM and HTML5.

HTML5 output from legacy versions of Storyline and Studio (i.e., Storyline 1, Storyline 2, and Studio ’13) works in Google Chrome and Safari. However, it won’t work reliably in other browsers. We recommend that you upgrade to Articulate 360 (which includes both Storyline 360 and Studio 360), as these apps don’t have any Flash dependencies and their HTML5 output works in all major browsers. Let us know if you want to discuss upgrade options.

Can courses be public or must users sign in? training isn’t public and doesn’t support anonymous or guestbook participation. Each learner must be a member of your team. You can make courses visible to your whole team by publishing them to your training library.
