Storyline 2 - CD - video file format

Hi All,

 

Forgive my lack of file type knowledge. I am trying to get a presentation published in Storyline 2 put onto a CD for employees who are not connected to our intranet.  I have published the file in Storyline 2 using the CD output and sent the file to our media team.  Their response was they need the file in AVI, WMV, MOV, Mpeg2 or Mpeg4 format.  How do I do this?

 

Thank you!

Hi Emily,

I think you and your media team are looking for two different things. The Publish to CD option takes the course as-is and makes it available offline. Users can still interact with the course (click on buttons, have layers pop up, etc.). Your media team wants a video, which would eliminate all of those interactions.

Storyline 360 just added a publish as video option. I would read through that doc so you're aware of all the considerations you'd need to make in order to have a successful learning experience. Personally, I'd explain what users would be missing to your media team so they're more willing to figure out how to make the Publish-to-CD option work on your intranet.

The CD version is designed to be put on any sort of portable media, and to run from there as a stand-alone version. So if you can burn the CD version on an actual physical CD, or flash drive, or external hard drive, then all you have to do is put the media in their hands. Send it by mail, pony express, sneakerNet, whatever.

If they can access the internet, publish it for the web, and put it somewhere they can access it. A lot of people use Amazon's S3 service.

The key here is what Allison said: "I think you and your media team are looking for two different things. The Publish to CD option takes the course as-is and makes it available offline.

Sounds to me more like a job for mail services than media team.

If your media team insists on you providing video, you could try downloading the trial version of 360 and use Storyline 360 to publish your presentation to video.  This will only work if your presentation does not have any user interactivity but who  knows maybe once you try it you will want to use 360 all the time.
