Watching a storyline 3 course in full screen in mobile

May 10, 2017

Hi everyone,
Looking for a way to watch a course using a full screen in mobile.
Is there an easy way to do it in Storyline 3?
I read all kinds of discussions that suggested using javascript code but it doesn't work on html5.
Has anyone found a solution to this?
Also i wanted to mention that we publish a course in storyline 3 and only at the first enter to the course link it opens in a full screen, but after we refresh or re enter the link, it won't open on full screen and we can't get back on watching in full screen again.

Has anyone found a solution to this too?

Hi Hadas,

Thanks for the link - it appears that we've also been talking with Saul about this same issue that you or one of your team emailed him about? My colleague Miker who was talking with Saul has identified it as a possible software bug. We did find that it's specific to Android phones and we can't reproduce it in an Android tablet. 

From here, we’ll meet with the team to take a closer look so we can determine next steps. Sometimes my team catches errors in my logic and we don’t have a bug after all. Of course, if that’s the case, I’ll let you know! 

Depending on priority and risk, some bugs can be fixed quickly, while others take longer to resolve. Here's more information on how we identify and tackle bugs.

I’ll let you know as soon as we have an update on this issue. Thanks so much again for letting us know about this, and I’m sorry if it’s slowing you down.

I suggest that you use a TIMELINE javascript trigger instead of a BUTTON trigger. This would ensure your course automatically loads in fullscreen from the very start. I would trigger the javascript from an object, placed outside de canvas, upon loadng in the timeline, about 0.5s into the first scene, in order to give enough time for the javascript to preload.

You may optionaly retain the toggle button in order to enter or exit the fullscreen state at will

Hi All,

I have some great news to share for Storyline 360 users! We just released a really cool feature that allows you to add a player toggle to let learners view courses in full-screen mode.

To take advantage of this update, launch the Articulate 360 desktop app on your computer and click the Update button next to Storyline 360. You'll find step-by-step instructions here.
