Browser Detection & Redirect


Chrome works best for our Storyline courses published in our LMS.  However, some learners prefer to use IE or other browsers.

Is there a way for Storyline to detect the browser the learner is using? Then if it's  not Chrome, to either pop a message to remind them to use Chrome or force the course to open in Chrome?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Christine,

There isn't anything built into Storyline to help detect the browser and redirect learners, but it may be something you're able to accomplish with some custom coding. Lots of folks in the E-Learning Heroes Community often weigh in on those discussions.

You could also look at a simpler option of instructing learners early on with an initial slide, that the best course experience would be to view it in Chrome and hope that they'll take your advice. 😉
