Publishing a Project for iPad or HTML5
Publishing courses for mobile devices and iPad
If you choose Web, Articulate Online, or LMS when publishing your Storyline content, you’ll see several options on the Publish window. You can choose Include HTML5 output to let learners view content on mobile devices that don’t support Flash. You can also choose Use Articulate Mobile Player on iPad to let learners view content on iPad using Articulate Mobile Player; a free app that gives learners the richest viewing experience on an iPad. Anyone can download it for free from the iTunes App Store. If you’re not sure which option you should choose (HTML5 or Articulate Mobile Player) or need other step-by-step guidance on publishing, read our tutorials on publishing for Web, Articulate Online, or LMS.
Common questions asked about publishing for iPad and mobile devices (HTML5).
If I publish for iPad or HTML5, will my course look and behave like it does when I publish Flash output? While many of the features in your course will look and behave exactly the same, some may not. Before you design for mobile, review this article to find out how mobile deployment may impact your course.
Once I publish for iPad or HTML5, how do learners view my course? After you publish from Storyline and upload your content to a web server, you just give learners a link to the story.html file. They’ll see the right format for the browser or device they’re using. See this article for details on how this happens.
Do learners need to be connected to the internet to view my course on an iPad? Initially, learners must be connected to the internet to view your course on an iPad. However, you can allow learners to download your course for offline viewing once they’ve added it to their library. Here’s an article that explains how to set this option when you publish.
How do learners remove a course from their Articulate Mobile Player library? Swipe the course title to the right or left, just like in the Mail App. A delete button appears to the right of the course title, and learners can tap the button to remove the course.
How can I publish content so that it will work on an iPhone? Include HTML5 output when publishing so that learners can use mobile Safari on their iPhones to view content. For more information, see this article.
What publishing option should I choose if my learners use Android devices? When you direct learners to the story.html file in your published course, they’ll automatically view the best output for their device and browser. Most Android devices support Flash, so learners will have the best experience by viewing the Flash version of your course. If they’re using a browser that doesn’t support Flash and if you included HTML5 output when you published, they’ll see the HTML5 version instead. See this article for details on how this works.
How can I track and report on learner progress if I publish for iPad or HTML5? Include HTML5 output when publishing if you need to track and report on learners using iPads or other devices that don’t support Flash. Learners can then view the course in mobile Safari, and your LMS can track their progress. You can’t track learners when they use Articulate Mobile Player, because AICC and SCORM, the communication standards used by learning management systems, don’t support mobile apps. We’re working with Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) and Rustici Software to help shape a new standard to address the issue. It’s called Tin Can. Once Tin Can is official, your LMS will need to support it. We recommend that you urge your LMS provider to do so.

I don’t need to support tracking, can I still use the Articulate Mobile Player in my LMS? It depends. If your LMS doesn’t require a login, you may be able to use Articulate Mobile Player. If your LMS requires a login, you might not be able to use Articulate Mobile Player, because browsers cannot pass security credentials to iPad apps at this time. You’ll need to test your published output in your LMS environment if you plan to allow viewing in Articulate Mobile Player.
