Welcome to Heroes, Noel!

Glad to hear you found the existing community interactions, but unfortunately, we are no longer offering the Engage software development kit for download, and are no longer providing support for it. 

But have you had a chance to look into Storyline yet? The possibilities and flexibility are nearly endless, and the best part is, you can try it free for 30 days!

Does this mean that support for Studio 09 products will also be going away? Unfortunately, we purchased Studio 09 only to find that Storyline was pushed out a few weeks later. I wish I had known about Storyline at the time so I could secured the purchases for it instead. It would have been nice if Articulate offered a special for recent Studio purchasers to switch to Storyline.

Hi Dawn

We’re sorry, but there’s no upgrade path from Studio ’09 to Storyline because they’re two distinct products. The good news is that we’re offering some nice incentives to folks who have Studio ’09 and also want to buy Storyline.


First, all Studio ’09 customers who buy Storyline get a bundle of eight photographic characters (valued at $2,392) at no cost (http://www.articulate.com/store/store-characters.php). Each high-resolution character pack in the bundle includes 140+ poses, plus torso and headshots, so you’ll have a total of 1100+ poses. These characters are a terrific way to add variety and realism to a course without hunting (or paying) for art online.


Second, if you’re on the Platinum Membership Plan with your Studio ’09 license, you can convert your remaining Studio PMP term to Storyline. This will save you money on your Storyline license. 


Also, note that you can easily import Presenter ’09, Quizmaker ’09, and Engage ’09 content into Storyline, helping protect your investment in Studio ’09.
