Hi Shelly, there is no Presenter panel in Storyline which is great because this means you can put your  video anywhere you want.

You could, for example, add a custom tab in the player settings which you could use to launch a lightbox that contains the presenter information.

If you want different videos on each slide, you could just create a shape along the left side of each screen and then insert the video and any related information in the shape area - if you are worried about using up screen space for this, you can make your course wider by clicking the  Story size setup  link ( click the Design link on the main toolbar to access this link).

The cool thing about adding the Presenter video to your screen is that you can synch what your presenter is saying to the text, images or animations that appear  on the screen by adjusting the timeline.

Hi Shelly, I don't think Articulate omitted this feature because of HTML5 ( I could be wrong on this). I think they tried to open up the interface so that developers had more flexibility about where they placed elements on the screen.

The one thing that really bugged me about Presenter was how locked down the inteface was.

Tom K - did a nice little example of how you could create a Presenter panel in Storyline,  I think I kept a copy so will see if I can find it and post it here for you to take a look.

It is not hard to set up at all.
