Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

Since Adobe discontinued Flash, we retired Flash publishing and the Articulate Mobile Player.

Here are answers to common questions about viewing and tracking Presenter 360 courses in Articulate Online.

Which publish formats should I choose?

Presenter 360 supports HTML5, Flash, and Articulate Mobile Player formats. Which should you choose when publishing to Articulate Online?

Short answer: Your best option is to choose HTML5/Flash output. This combination covers all learners and provides the best experience.

Detailed answer:

  • The HTML5/Flash option covers the widest audience and gives learners the best experience on laptop/desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones.
  • The HTML5-only option limits your audience to learners with modern, HTML5-supported browsers.
  • The Flash-only option limits your audience to learners with laptop/desktop computers and Flash-enabled browsers.
  • The Articulate Mobile Player option is only necessary if your course includes FLV videos with alpha-channel transparency.

Which format will learners see?

The format learners see when they launch your course depends on the devices and browsers they're using and the publish formats you include.

If you select...

Learners will see...


Learners will always see HTML5 output.


Learners will see HTML5 output if they're using a supported HTML5 browser. If not, they'll see Flash output.


Learners will see Flash output if they’re using a Flash-enabled browser. If not, they’ll see HTML5 output.


Learners will always see Flash output. If they're not using a Flash-enabled browser, they won't be able to view your course.

Articulate Mobile Player

Learners with iPads and Android devices will see Articulate Mobile Player output. All other learners will see HTML5 or Flash output, depending on which of the options above you select.

Can learners switch between formats/devices without losing progress or results?

Yes, learners can switch between devices, browsers, and formats without losing their progress or results. They'll resume right where they left off.

We recommend choosing the HTML5/Flash format when you publish to cover the widest audience and provide the best experience. When you host content in Articulate Online, you don't need to include Articulate Mobile Player output unless your course includes FLV videos with alpha-channel transparency.
