Question about optimized course !!

Hi everyone , 

I'm running my project on Moodle , everything is in HTML5 output but it seem to be a bit slow , so I'm trying to optimized my course , try to put everything in to slide master , feedback master , etc .
So my question for Articulate Storyline 2 development team  is "When I put everything in to 1 slide master and the course initiate , will the content load from the server first or it will wait until the slide need that content and load it ?" 
I have run some test but it is still not very clear .

̶A̶̶n̶̶d̶ ̶I̶ ̶t̶̶h̶̶i̶̶n̶̶k̶ ̶m̶̶y̶ ̶c̶̶o̶̶u̶̶r̶̶s̶̶e̶ ̶a̶̶l̶̶s̶̶o̶ ̶h̶̶a̶̶v̶̶e̶ ̶s̶̶o̶̶m̶̶e̶ ̶t̶̶r̶̶o̶̶u̶̶b̶̶l̶̶e̶ ̶w̶̶i̶̶t̶̶h̶ ̶t̶̶r̶̶i̶̶g̶̶g̶̶e̶̶r̶ ̶I̶ ̶g̶̶u̶̶e̶̶s̶̶s̶ ̶t̶̶h̶̶a̶̶t̶ ̶b̶̶e̶̶c̶̶a̶̶u̶̶s̶̶e̶ ̶I̶ ̶u̶̶s̶̶e̶ ̶t̶̶o̶̶o̶ ̶m̶̶u̶̶c̶̶h̶ ̶W̶̶h̶̶e̶̶n̶ ̶t̶̶i̶̶m̶̶e̶̶l̶̶i̶̶n̶̶e̶ ̶s̶̶t̶̶a̶̶r̶̶t̶ ̶t̶̶r̶̶i̶̶g̶̶g̶̶e̶̶r̶ ̶s̶̶o̶  some courses usually take about 5s or 10s to load and sometimes need a little more time to run correctly , anybody have the same problem with me ? I still run some test on this case .

Thanks ,

Hi Long, 

Storyline courses will preload content in the following order:

  1. Assets are loaded for the first slide (or the current slide when resuming), so the course can begin playing right away.
  2. Assets are then loaded for the next three slides to prevent playback delays.
  3. Assets are then loaded for the remainder of the course.

So if the items are on the slide master that the first slide is referencing, those will be loaded as well.

As far as the "when timeline start" trigger I don't know that I'd think you could use it "too much" but what elements are you triggering from the timeline start?
