Transform slides into online courses.
Transform your PowerPoint slides into presentation-based courses. With its newly streamlined user interface, Articulate Presenter ’13 makes it even easier to author online courses, quizzes, and form-based interactions in the familiar PowerPoint environment.
Add photographic and illustrated characters to your course right from the Presenter character library. Choose from up to 47,500 combinations of characters, expressions, and poses.
It’s simple to set slide properties for each slide in your course. In one window, you can create multilevel menus, branch learners based on their choices, identify presenters for each slide or your whole course, and more.
Highlight important content with a range of annotations, including arrows, checkmarks, crosses, rectangles, and spotlights. Then adjust your annotation’s size, color, and animation to make it your own.
Apply animations to animated GIFs, SmartArt, and to text—word-by-word or letter-by-letter. And because Presenter ’13 now supports most of the animations in PowerPoint, you have more ways to bring text and objects to life.
Your slide notes display exactly as you design them. Presenter preserves all text formatting, paragraph breaks, colors, and even font styles.
Give your learners easy access to the web. Simply embed live web content in your course. It takes just seconds to add visually rich web-based applications, games, videos, reference material, and other web content to your Articulate Presenter course.
Custom Slide Sizes
Go big or small, portrait or landscape. Your choice. Articulate Presenter ’13 supports custom slide sizes.
Audio and Narration
Add narration and sound to your slides by importing audio, or simply record it right in Presenter, then sync with slides and animations. And with the built-in editor, you can easily edit audio files—just click and drag on a visual of the track.
Make it easy for anyone, anywhere, to listen to your courses. Just export your narration from Presenter to a single MP3 file. Learners and reviewers can play it on any MP3 player, audio device, or smartphone.
Import videos in virtually any format, including those you make in Articulate Replay. You can also record video from your webcam, or easily embed it from websites such as YouTube. Then use the new video editor in Presenter to easily crop and trim your video, adjust the volume, or add a watermark or logo.
Capture learner attention with 20 different media-rich interactions. You build them in Articulate Engage by filling out a form, then just add them to your Presenter courses as slides or player tabs.
It takes just a few clicks to add Flash movies and interactive content—including SWF files, FLV files, and Captivate and Camtasia screencasts—to your Presenter course.
Presenter supports key slide transitions you build in PowerPoint. So now you can make slides fade, dissolve, zoom, and more.
Use Articulate Quizmaker to create quizzes, surveys, and other assessments, including drag-and-drop questions. Then, seamlessly add them to your Presenter courses as slides or player tabs.
Branch learners to the content they need the most. Test them on how they’d handle a scenario, then take them to different slides depending on how they respond.
All Articulate Studio ’13 products share a unified player. So if you add a Quizmaker assessment or Engage interaction to your course, learners can easily navigate using a single set of controls.
Frame your course perfectly with a customised player. Use a polished color scheme or create a custom look to match slide content or your brand guidelines. You also have control over player layouts, text labels and language, player controls, and more.
Group your slides into sections and topics, then display how you’ve organized content in the menu.
Let your learners pick up where they left off, even when courses include Articulate Quizmaker ’13 quizzes and Articulate Engage ’13 interactions.
Customise your player for learners around the world. Choose from 28 built-in languages or add your own, thanks to the player’s Unicode and double-byte character support.
Publish to Flash, HTML5, and Mobile
Let learners view content wherever they are. Just build your course, then publish it to multiple formats so learners can view it on their desktops, laptops, iPads, and more. Presenter publishes to HTML5, Flash, and the Articulate Mobile Player, a native app that optimizes content for iPads.
We’ve optimized Presenter publishing, so you can publish content up to five times faster.
Publish to Word
Make it easy for subject matter experts and others to review your courses by publishing them to Microsoft Word.
Make your courses widely accessible with Presenter’s industry-leading Section 508 support. Now learners with screen readers can easily access your Presenter content.
Tracking and Reporting
Presenter publishes Tin Can API-, SCORM-, and AICC-compliant content so it works seamlessly with learning management systems that support those standards. You can also publish to Articulate Online to cost-effectively track and report on assessment activity.
Make it easy for learners around the globe to access your courses. Localize your content with Presenter’s right-to-left language support. Presenter also supports double-byte character sets (DBCS), so you can even translate your courses into Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
Localize your course player for learners everywhere. Export player elements—such as slide titles, navigation buttons, and player tabs—to Microsoft Word or XML format. After you’ve translated the text for player elements, simply import it back into Presenter.
