Inserting Engage Into Your CourseLast updated 951 days ago

Inserting Engage

In this lesson, we'll look at inserting our Engage interaction into our course. We really have two ways to do this:

  1. Insert Engage from Presenter
  2. Publish Engage into PowerPoint


Both work equally well so it's up to you and your workflow which method you use. My preferred workflow is to insert from Presenter. Why? For one reason, my interaction's already built so I'm finished working in Engage. I'd prefer to to close Engage, free up some resources, and get back into PowerPoint and Presenter.


Inserting Engage as a Slide


  1. Click Slide 4: Chock the Wheels in the Outline pane
  2. Click Articulate > Engage Interaction
  3. Click Add Existing... from the Engage Interactions tab
  4. Navigate to chocking_review.intr
  5. Click OK to insert Engage on Slide 5


Next we'll make a few changes to the Interaction Properties:

  1. In the Allow user to leave interaction menu, select Anytime
  2. In the Show 'Next Slide' button: menu, select Show Always
  3. In the Button Label: text box, type "Continue"

Preview your completed interaction.


What's Next?

That concludes the lesson on Engage. In the next lesson, we'll work with simulating multiple videos on a one slide. To do this, we'll work with hidden slides, hyperlinks and branching.

Just created my first Engage interaction and trying to insert into PowerPoint. So this addressed exactly what I needed. (Didn't know about changing the Properties) Thanks

Hi, I have created an interaction direct in Engage and it does not save to my Articulate folder on my local drive for me to be able to pick it up and insert it in my presentation. What am I doing wrong or not?

Hi El-Mare,

Not exactly sure. Can you find the files on your drive by searching on *.intr ?

I have also had the problem of building an engagement, inserting it into the ppt, coming back the next day and trying to edit it and the file is completely gone. I searched my drive for *intr files as well. This has happened 4 times in the last week.

Hmm. Hopefully someone who has had and resolved this problem and/or Articulate staff will respond.

Once you put the files in the correct location, you should not republish them.  Re-publishing them overwrites the files.

If you want to see if the intereaction is working correctly, go to the 'top' folder with the interaction, and right click on the engage.html file and open it with internet explorer.  

Let me know if you have additional questions and I will try to help if I am able.  

Kind Regards,

I would like to add that there is only one interaction out of all the interactions in the three different projects I have going, that is doing this.

My apologies, I did not read that close enough.  I don't think I have had that issue.
