Storyline in an LMS

Hi there,

Does anyone know how Storyline courses work in an LMS. When a user opens a course on an LMS does the whole course download as one file of does only the page that the learner is currently on download and then the next page download when the learner navigates to it?

I ask this because if it only downloads one page at a time that would give me the freedom to add more video content to my course without having to worry that the learners will need to download a 100Mb course at once.

Thanks in advance

Hi Lawrence, 

To make playback as smooth as possible, your published Articulate Storyline courses will preload content in the following order when a student opens the course. 

  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.
