Question about Captivate output vs Storyline output
Feb 22, 2017
I know this is the Articulate forum, but I also know that several of you are well-versed in both Articulate and Captivate, so I hope someone here can help me.
I have been using Storyline for years, and have only used Captivate once or twice. I know that when I publish a Storyline course, I get a folder with assets including the story.html file, but that I need to go back to the "course.story" file if I want to make edits to the course.
Does it work the same way in Captivate? A new client gave me a zipped folder that contained files for a course created in Captivate (no idea what version). It appears to be similar to the package that is created when I publish in Articulate. Within the zipped folder are subfolders of course assets, plus several files that end with .xml and .xsd, plus a file called "index.html." I can play the course using the index.html file. I told the client I would need them to send me the Captivate (.cptx) file. They reached out to their previous vendor, who responded by saying that the .html file can be edited with any text editor and was all that was needed.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I still need the Captivate file to edit the course, correct?
