Publish your Presenter 360 project to Microsoft Word when you need a printable version of your course. It’s a convenient way to distribute handouts, provide a transcript for accessibility purposes, or share content with a reviewer.

  1. Enter Title, Description, and Folder Location
  2. Choose the Presenters and Output Type
  3. Publish

Step 1: Enter Title, Description, and Folder Location

  1. Go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Publish.
  2. When the Publish window appears, select the Word tab on the left.

    Publish window in Presenter 360.
  3. Enter the Title the way you want it to appear in your Word document. It defaults to the name of your project file. (Changing the title won't affect the name of your project file.) The maximum length for a project title is 80 characters.
  4. Click the ellipsis button (...) beside the title field to define additional project information, such as the author, duration, and version number. This information won’t be visible when you publish for Word.
  5. Use the Description field to give learners a synopsis of your course.
  6. Use the Folder field to indicate where you want to publish your course—for example, your computer desktop. Click the ellipsis button (...) to browse to a location. Presenter 360 will create a new folder in that spot with the published Word document.

    Important: Always publish to your local hard drive. Publishing to a network drive or a USB drive can cause problems with your published output due to latency.

Step 2: Choose the Presenters and Output Type

Use the Properties section of the Publish window to choose the presenter bio for your course and the format for your Word document.

  1. Use the Presenter drop-down to choose a presenter bio for your course. If you choose a single presenter, his bio will appear on the first page of the Word document. If you choose slide-level presenters, their bios will be included on each slide where they’re assigned. Click the ellipsis button (...) to manage your library of presenter bios.
  2. Use the Output Type drop-down to choose a format for your Word document:
    • Storyboard: This option gives you a 3-column layout with detailed slide information, a thumbnail image of each slide, and the text from PowerPoint's notes panel.
    • Presenter Notes: This gives you a simple document that lists each slide number, slide title, and text from PowerPoint's notes panel.

Step 3: Publish

When you're finished making selections, click the Publish button. When the publishing process is complete, you’ll see the Publish Successful window with several follow-up options.
