Articulate Presenter

Short Description:

Easily author, narrate, and annotate presentation‑based courses right in PowerPoint.

With this app and the Articulate 360 package, you can start building courses in PowerPoint and then add interactions and assessments, kick‑start the creative process, fine‑tune course elements thanks to the new timeline, which makes syncing course audio, animations, and annotations simple.

Presenter 360 imports and records audio, imports and adjusts video in any format, and adds Flash movies, web objects, and interactive content to the slides.

It has solutions for most eLearning tasks and authoring options for all levels of developers.

The interface is similar to that of PowerPoint, but with more customization options.

Deliver engaging courses to every device—without any additional work. Simply create your course in Presenter 360, then click publish. Your course automatically plays everywhere, beautifully. The responsive player dynamically adapts to every screen size, optimizes screen real estate, and supports touchscreen gestures that let learners swipe and drag to navigate.


Transform slides into mobile and online courses. It includes an ever‑expanding set of relatable characters and slide templates to build pro‑looking courses.

Presenter 360 integrates seamlessly with Engage 360 and Quizmaker 360, so you can easily engage and test learners. Add 20 media‑rich interactions from Engage 360 to capture learner attention. Create any quiz, survey, and decision‑making activity you want with Quizmaker 360. It takes just seconds to add Engage and Quizmaker content to your Presenter course.

You can create 20 types of interactions quickly and easily. Fully integrated with Presenter 360, Content Library 360 includes an ever‑expanding set of relatable characters and gorgeous slide templates you can use to build pro‑looking courses faster than ever. Content library collects more than 5 million photos, models, characters, videos and icons.

Some training needed on the main tools, before starting developing courses. To take full advantage of Storyline’s capabilities, it is needed to use layers, triggers, and variables.

It is quite expensive and you can only pay all the enrollment costs at a time. There are no monthly charges.

At the end, you can speed project reviews. Finish projects faster with Review 360, the web‑based review app that’s part of Articulate 360. Simply upload your Presenter 360 course to quickly gather and share feedback. Stakeholders can see the latest version, make in‑context comments, and chime in on existing threads. And you can easily view, resolve, and respond to their feedback, keeping everyone in sync.

Platform for Development

Presenter 360 is not a standalone application but it requires at least:

  • Microsoft Office 365 (desktop apps only)
  • PowerPoint 2019 (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • PowerPoint 2016 (32-bit or 64-bit)

All system requirements are here.

Generated Content

If you view a Presenter 360 course on your local hard drive (or send it to others to view on their local hard drives), you’ll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, and network that can cause various features of the course to fail. To test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published.

Publish your course to Review 360 to collect feedback from stakeholders and track version history. It’s a great way to collaborate on a project before distributing the finalized course to learners.

  • First, publish your course to Review 360.
  • Then, invite stakeholders to review the course.

Publish for Web Distribution. If you don’t need to track learners’ progress or results, then web publishing is a good option.

  • First, publish your course for web distribution.
  • Then, do any of the following to get your course onto a web server:
  • Use the FTP option on the Publish Successful dialog to upload the published files to a web server.
  • Use your own FTP client to upload the published files to a web server.
  • Give the published files to your server administrator to upload to a web server.
  • Finally, give learners the URL for the presentation.html file, which is the file that launches your course.

If you don’t have access to a web server, here are some free options:

  • Tempshare is a free service provided by Articulate for testing published courses. The tutorial specifically mentions Storyline, but Temp Share also works for Studio courses. Note: Uploaded files will be deleted after 10 days.
  • Amazon S3 offers free hosting with generous usage limits. If you go over your limit, you’ll be charged a small fee. See this video tutorial by Tom Kuhlmann to learn more about Amazon S3.
  • Google Cloud also has a free hosting service. You’ll be charged a small fee if you go over the free limit. See this video tutorial by Tom Kuhlmann to learn more about Google Cloud.

Publish for LMS Distribution. If you need to track learners’ progress and results, another great option is to use your own learning management system (LMS). Presenter 360 supports Tin Can API (xAPI), SCORM 2004, SCORM 1.2, and AICC LMSs.

  • First, publish your course for LMS distribution.
  • Then, click the Zip option on the Publish Successful dialog and upload the zip file to your LMS.
  • Finally, invite learners to your LMS to take the course.

Publish for CD or Other Local Media. Need to distribute a course offline? Presenter 360 has an option for that. Just publish for CD, then deliver your course to learners via CD, DVD, USB drive, network drive, kiosk, or email.

  • First, publish your course for CD.
  • Then, depending on how you plan to distribute your course, click Email, FTP, or Zip on the Publish Successful dialog.
  • Finally, instruct learners to double-click the Launch_Presentation.exe file to launch the course.
