Converting to Studio 13

Dec 09, 2013

Hi Guys,

I am really new to eLearning.

We are currently using Studio 09 in our Gov orgnaisation and are looking to install Studio 13. It is my responsibility to risk manage this process and ensure a smooth transition to 13. However we have 52 courses created in Studio 09 and was wondering when I install 13 what happens to all of my current files? Do they stay the same?

  1. Do I need to republish all my courses?
  2. Do the files look different when created in Studio 13?
  3. Do I lose my quizmaker and Engage files?
  4. We still have some users on XP and Windows 2003? will this be an issue for them to open the course when published? Most of the orgaisation are using windows 2007.

Thankyou for your help!

Hey Gill!

Thanks for posting your question! Here are some answers:

1. You don't need to republish the course. Your current e-learning courses that have already been published and are already being shared with others will not be affected. 

2. The main thing that will look different about files created in Studio '13 is the new player. The player is the "container" of the course and holds the course menu and the navigation buttons. The new player is more streamlined, and looks identical to the Storyline player. It can be fully customized.

3. You will not lose your Quizmaker and Engage files. The files will remain in the same location, unaffected, and you will be able to open them in Studio 13. 

4. Since the published output usually resides on a web server and is accessed through the web, the version of Windows they are using should not affect their ability to view your published courses.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any additional questions =)
