Jan 20, 2021

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to convert an Articulate Presenter file into a PowerPoint file that can be imported into Storyline 360?

Thanks in advance.

Hey, Shelley,

You can import PowerPoint and Presenter files into Storyline, but there are a few things you should keep in mind when doing so as the conversion might not be one is to one. This article provides a lot of information and tips when importing your presentations into Storyline 360.

If you haven't already, I recommend checking out this tutorial which will walk you through importing PowerPoint presentations into Storyline. Make sure you take a look at section 2, which talks about importing Presenter packages with audio.

Note:  If you're importing a PowerPoint file that includes Articulate Presenter resources (such as audio), be sure that the PPTA file is located in the same folder as the PowerPoint file.  Otherwise, Storyline will be able to import only the PowerPoint slides but not the corresponding Articulate Presenter resources. (Articulate Presenter does not need to be installed to import PowerPoint / Presenter content.)

I hope this helps. Feel free to reach out if you have further questions. :)

Hi Shelley,

It looks like Jaycee has you covered! Since Articulate Presenter is a Powerpoint add-on, you'll simply follow the steps outlined to import that existing file into Storyline, and voila! You'll be able to continue your course development in Storyline.

Thank you so much, Jaycee!

This information is exactly what I needed. I was able to import the Presenter files into Storyline and publish SCORM with no problem!

I can't tell you how much I appreciate this! Our clients need to update courses with flash before Jan 26th. The pressure was on! ;-)
