Support for Phone-based view ?

Hey guys. We are major supporters of Storyline 2 and are using alot of the great new features. Are biggest request would be for phone-based presentation templates. In our eLearning development we use custom HTML5 frameworks that are fully responsive design, and would love to see even 3-5 responsive templates in Storyline.

Content on responsive webpages dynamically repositions to fit different screen sizes. On a tablet, a menu might appear on the side. On a smaller phone, it might shift to the top.

Our view is that slide-based content shouldn't work this way. Because with slides, the relative position of content matters. For example, if you build a slide with a person pointing at a map, you don’t want the map repositioned above the person’s head when the slide is viewed on a phone.

E-learning authoring tools that claim to be responsive actually make you manually reposition your slide content—the person and the map in this case—for every device. It’s a grueling task given the ever-growing pool of devices and form factors available to learners.

You should be able to develop a course once and trust it will look great on any device—without any manual tweaking. We believe that smart, adaptive course players are the answer. They would maintain the positioning of slide content, while also delivering a beautiful learning experience on every device. The players do the heavy lifting, not you. To that end, we’re enhancing our HTML5, Android, and iOS tablet course players to be more adaptive. We’re also developing an adaptive player for phones.
