Hi Reena,

I'm not certain I understand your question. While working on your Storyline course you'll be accessing a .story file, and when you go to publish it, you'll see additional files and types depending on how you've published. If you publish to CD as described here, you'll want to use the Launch_Story.exe file - is that what you're thinking of?

Hi Anne

Thanks for reaching out here! We don't have a feature in Storyline that'll allow for publish to one single file (EXE or MP4) but I know it's been discussed a number of times here in ELH and I'd love for you to share more on how this would help your course creation too through our feature request form! 

We always love to hear feedback from our customers, and we take all of these suggestions into account. In case you're wondering, here's how we manage all of the ideas we receive!

Hey Anne!

Welcome to E-Learning Heroes- so happy you're here ⭐️

Articulate Storyline publishes a collection of files for each course, which allows the content to progressively download elements. This means your content will have faster download and playback times.

Currently Storyline doesn't support publishing to a single file, however I can definitely see that being a handy feature! Would you mind sharing your thoughts with our Product Development team here

If your curious, here's a little more info on our feature request process!

Thanks again 😊

Hi there, Anne.  How are you distributing your course?  It sounds like you've published for CD/local viewing.  And you're right, you'll still need those supporting files for the course to play properly.

Is the course something that can be recorded?  If it doesn't require interaction from the learner, you could always do a screen recording of the course using Replay.  Replay will publish an MP4 file that you could distribute or host.
