Articulate, IIS and Cookies

May 25, 2011

Hi All,

We're looking to increase the security of our Modules by developing an IIS, which would create one password and logon to access all the Modules. We are wondering, however, if Articulate's great capacity for users to "pick up where they left over" during a training would be compromised.

Our IIS developer speculates that this capacity would stil be possible through a browser's cookies, as long as the user does his/her training from the same machine.

Does anyone have experience with this? Any tips? Thanks in advance!

Hi Maribeth. You could certainly do that. The ability to resume would be restricted by the use of a Flash cookie so a person would need to be on the same computer to resume properly (and also not clear their cookies). To host and deliver Articulate content, and to track user progress, we recommend using Articulate Online, which supports one-click publishing from Articulate authoring tools, and offers super-easy reporting capabilities. You can learn more about Articulate Online here:

You can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Articulate Online here:

If Articulate Online does not meet your needs, you can track Articulate content in any SCORM- or AICC-compliant Learning Management System (LMS). Here are some low cost LMS you might want to consider:
