All About Articulate’s New Mobile Player

Articulate 360 has everything an e-learning professional needs to quickly and easily develop courses for desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones. This new solution includes industry-leading mobile technology that frees developers from endlessly tweaking their courses for every device a learner might use.

Let’s take a closer look at this new mobile technology, and how it makes developing m-learning so much easier.

Publish Storyline 360 and Studio 360 Courses to a Responsive Player

Articulate 360 includes updated versions of our award-winning authoring apps Storyline and Studio. Create any interactive e-learning imaginable with Storyline 360. And Studio 360 makes it easy to transform PowerPoint presentations into engaging e-learning.

Both of these updated apps include the new responsive mobile course player, which adapts course content for any device. Here’s how it works:

When a learner opens a Storyline 360 or Studio 360 course on their mobile device, the responsive player automatically adapts to make the most of the screen real estate while preserving course content.

There’s no need for e-learning developers to tweak courses for different devices or aspect ratios. They simply publish content to the responsive player and the technology does the rest. See the player in action in this video.

To provide a seamless experience for learners on the go, the responsive mobile player automatically provides intuitive mobile navigation and supports mobile gestures such as swipe and pinch-to-zoom. Explore this example on your mobile device to see what we mean!

Create Truly Responsive E-Learning with Rise

In addition to the responsive player in Storyline 360 and Studio 360, Articulate 360 includes a brand new app that’s simplifying the way developers build mobile e-learning.

Rise lets course creators build inherently responsive e-learning right in their web browser. They can choose from an assortment of prebuilt lessons or create completely custom interactions with blocks. Because it’s Rise, all course content adapts beautifully to any device.

Take a look at this example on your mobile device to see what we mean. You’ll notice how course content reflows and looks great no matter the device size or orientation (try looking at the example in both portrait and landscape modes). Rise is responsive authoring the way it should be—totally effortless!

Hi, everyone! Really sorry for the trouble here! This article is actually on the topic of Articulate's new HTML5 responsive player for mobile (a little different from the Articulate Mobile Player app you may have installed on your Android device or iPad), but no matter. We still want to help you! The most likely cause of a course not opening properly in Articulate Mobile Player (AMP) is that the course wasn't published with the most recent version of the authoring tool. The authoring tool could be Articulate Storyline or Articulate Studio, but that's irrelevant to you--you just need to be able to access the course! I'd recommend reaching out to the person who gave you this course and telling them that Articulate says the course needs to be re-published with the latest version o... Expand
