How to insert Engage 13 into Storyline

Feb 11, 2014

Hello Friends,

I'm attempting to insert an Engage 13 published file into a Storyline project.  I followed the instructions here:  However, the instructions do not match what I see with the published Engage files, specifically with the file name to change in step 2 from engage.html to index.html.  The article was written for a previous version of Engage, so it's possible that the steps should be updated for the current version.

Does anyone have any insight into how to insert Engage 13 interactions into Storyline or how to insert an Engage 13 interaction into another Engage 13 interaction?  Thanks in advance for any info!

Thank you,

Hi Matthew,

I just wanted to welcome you to Heroes, and Michael is correct you'll need to test the published course within the intended environment to fully test all the web objects. If you're in need of some testing sites, you could use one of the options included in this article: 

  • Tempshare: This is a free service provided by Articulate for testing Storyline content. Note: Uploaded files will be deleted after 10 days.
  • Amazon S3: Amazon S3 offers free hosting with generous usage limits. If you go over your limit, you'll be charged a graduated fee.
  • Dropbox: Place your published output in the Public folder in your Dropbox account to share it with others.
  • Google Drive: Change the story.html file to index.html, and set the sharing permissions to PublicHere's how.

Today I tried to follow similar directions for Storyline 2 but couldn't find an interaction.html file in the output; only an interaction.html5 file. So, I changed this to index.html5 but it comes up as a blank engagement when I try to import it as a web object into a new slide in Storyline. What to do?

Hi Caitlin!

The good news is that you can import those interactions into SL2, whereas the above was a workaround for SL1.

Articulate Storyline has powerful features for creating highly interactive content. However, you can also take advantage of existing Articulate Engage interactions by importing them into Storyline. Here's how.
