Software / hardware required


My company is planning to create an image of a computer with all of the requirements to run my eLearning content that I've created in Storyline and Presenter, and then share that image across several computers.  My IT department is asking for all of the required "plugins" and other required software to run the courses. 

I have viewed the Storyline Tech Specs but I just want  to confirm that if I have courses with imported video, audio, web objects, pictures, etc... nothing will be required to view them beyond what is on the tech specs document.

Hi Matt!

That's a pretty all-inclusive list. One other thing that comes to mind (and I'm sure others can chime in if I'm forgetting more), is if you'e going to be hosting your content on a web server, you'll want to ensure that the server is enabled to play the FLV and MP4 mime types

You should be all set though...

Couple of thoughts...

If this image is being pushed out to users, you are going to want to make sure you are looking at the requirements of your LMS, not just the authoring software. That includes browser specs and things like JavaScripting enabled to launch pages, Java runtime present for communication between content and lms tracking, etc. Your LMS provider should be able to help you with that stuff. Just be sure to get into more detail other than "IE8 or Chrome".

Also, if you are including attachments in your courses, your users may need things like Acrobat Reader or any software needed to open certain docs you will be including.

Hope this helps and good luck with the project,
