Engage into Storyline from different machines

Jan 29, 2014

Hello everyone!

At my company, I have access to both Engage and Storyline.  Unfortunately, they are installed on different computers.  When I create something in Engage, come back to my own computer and try to upload it into Storyline, it tells me I can't, because Engage isn't installed on my computer.

Is there any workaround for this?

Hi Amy,

First, what version of Engage? If it's Engage '09, that shouldn't be a problem. However, if it's Engage '13, that content isn't yet supported in Storyline. It'll be available in a free update in the future, however. 

Is Engaged licensed to you? If so, you can activate on up to 2 machines at one time. You could download Engage '09 and install it on the machine with Storyline, if you're not already using 2 installations. If you already have 2 installations activated, you could deactivate one of those installations and install on the machine running Storyline.

Another option would be to publish the Engage interaction and upload it as a standalone interaction. You could then insert the interaction URL as a web object in Storyline.

I hope this helps! :)

Hi Christine!

Thanks so much for your reply!

I have Engage '09.  Engage is already installed on 2 computers, and deactivation is not an option.

I tried to publish the Engage interaction and embed it as an object.  However, in order to do this, does the Interaction need to be stored online?  is it possible to use a location from the local computer?

Thanks so much,

Hi Amy,

I would strongly recommend that, yes - do you have access to a web server or LMS for this? If you do not have access to a web server or LMS for testing, you could try using SCORM Cloud.

Another option would be to use our Tempshare server. Just keep in mind that this server is only available for testing content - it is not officially supported by Articulate and all content will be removed automatically after 10 days.

In addition, you could also use Dropbox. Just remember that you'll need to place your content in the "Public" folder. Also, you'll need to make sure that the folder is enabled. To do so, click on this link. I personally prefer this method, because it's extremely easy.

You're always welcome to try out Articulate Online, as well - it's available for a free 30 day trial.

Once you have that quiz uploaded to a server, just insert a web object with the URL for the quiz.

Also.. just out of curiosity.. could you install Storyline on one of those 2 machines? Sounds like that would make things much easier for you :)
