Can I use Engage/Presenter in a wiki?

Is it possible to create an Engage FAQ (or any other interaction), publish it and embed it on a wiki page? 

For that matter, could I embed any published Articulate piece in a wiki? We have always put them in our LMS but I have an on-demand resource page I'm making in a wiki. I would love to include some Articulate elements but I'm new to the world of wiki mark up. 

If the answer is yes, is there a way to publish so it automatically loads and plays when the wiki is opened?

Thanks so much for any tips or suggestions!

Hi Natalia,It's totally possible. In fact, here's an example embedded in a wiki.

When you publish your Engage file, select Publish to Web and you'll get an output similar to Presenter.You'll need some means of uploading the files to your server (FTP or sharepoint) and then embedding the engage.html file in an iframe.1. Do you have or know where your web server is and do you have access to it?2. Do you know how to create an iframe that holds your engage.html file?

Oh that's perfect.

This is new territory for me. My technical knowledge is somewhat like swiss cheese. I have picked up a fair bit throughout, but there are definitely some gaps. This would be one of them. I do have access to FTP and SharePoint but my understanding of each is pretty limited. I FTP my courses to our LMS host and I upload resources to various SharePoint sites for different projects, but that's the extent of it. I don't know how to manipulate either. I am also not familiar with iframe. 

There are people here who can help me. I just need to understand enough to know what I'm asking for.

Really appreciate your help, as always. I'm excited to learn how to do this given all the possibilities it opens up...

Hi everyone, actually I wanted to jump on this one too as I was just handed the keys to a section of our new wiki today and am probably in the same boat as Natalia. At the moment, all I've got to work with is a pretty generic "attachments" section where I am able to upload files, i.e. pdfs and word docs and then link to them. There's also an option to use source code to do these pages...make sense? Thanks, Blair

 I'm glad you brought it back up, Blair. I got side tracked by another project I'm working on but I'm still interested in pursuing my wiki/Articulate options. I was really excited to work with the wiki at first but my lack of knowledge for how I can work around the limitations is making it frustrating instead of fun. 

David, I feel like you gave me the key to something up there in your post but it's just a bit beyond my reach.

1. Yes

2. No. What's an iframe

David, do you know how to do this if the web server is secure?  I want to embed the iFrame on my wiki page and then point it at our internal ASP server.  I want my iFrame/wiki to be able to pass a "please-trust-me" cookie back to my ASP server so it will serve up the content.  The file works great in the public folder, but I get "Forbidden" when I point it to a secured folder.

Many thanks,

Karen
