“My first impression was, ‘This is going to sell like bread!!’ An Italian way to say that something is going to be a very requested item.” — Stefano Posti, Manager, Projit

Streamlined, Form-Based Authoring

Build your media-rich interactions even faster. With the new user interface in Articulate Engage, you add text, multimedia, and images to an interaction in one highly simplified window. Just fill out the intuitive forms and you’ll have an engaging 720 x 540 interaction in minutes.

20 Interaction Types

With the 10 new interactions in Engage, you can build 20 different types of interactions for your e-learning content. Let learners tab through folders or content on an image, view content on bulletin boards, zoom into images, see a simulated Internet chat conversation, and more.

Customizable Look

Make each interaction your own. You can easily customize the look and feel of your interactions by changing colors and animation effects. Matching interactions to the rest of your course—and brand guidelines—takes just a few clicks.


Add photographic and illustrated characters to your course right from the Engage character library. Choose from up to 47,500 combinations of characters, expressions, and poses.


Import videos in virtually any format, including those you make in Articulate Replay. You can record video from your webcam, or easily embed it from websites such as YouTube. Then use the new video editor in Engage to easily crop and trim your video, adjust the volume, or add a watermark or logo. You can also choose whether or not to compress videos at publish so your videos always look exactly the way you want.


Add narration and sound to your interaction by importing audio, or simply record it right in Engage. And with the built-in editor, you can easily edit audio files by clicking and dragging on a visual of the track.

Stunning Output

We’ve redesigned every interaction in Engage with a clean, modern look—so they’re more beautiful than ever.

Your player, your way.

Let learners resume where they left off, advance in a specific order, or explore any way they want—using a single set of intuitive player controls.

“Congrats on this beautiful piece of work. I'm looking forward to some play time.” — Natalia Mueller-Spurgin, Associate Director of Training, International, RGA

Unified Player

All Articulate Studio ’13 products share a unified player. So if you add an Engage interaction to your Articulate Presenter ’13 course, learners can easily navigate using a single set of controls.

Three Playback Modes

You choose how much control to give learners when viewing your Engage content. Set playback to “interactive” to let learners advance in any order, or “linear” to have them advance in a set order. Or, choose “presentation” to automatically advance the interaction.

Resume Playback

Let learners come back to a standalone interaction exactly where they left off. With the resume feature, learners don’t have to start again at the beginning unless they want to.

Reach more learners.

Create your interaction once, then easily publish it for learners everywhere with just a few clicks.

“Very, very nice .... HTML5 accordion panels, oh how I've been waiting for you.” — Brian Allen, Learning Systems Analyst, LexisNexis

Publish to Flash, HTML5, and Mobile

Let learners view interactions wherever they are. Just build your interaction, then publish it to multiple formats all at once so learners can view on their desktops, laptops, iPads, and more. Engage publishes to HTML5, Flash, and the Articulate Mobile Player, a native app that optimizes content for iPads.

Publish to Presenter as Slides

It’s easy to add Engage interactions as slides in your Articulate Presenter ’13 course. You can even make sure learners complete the entire interaction before they can progress to the next slide in the course.

Publish to Presenter as Player Tabs

Add the reference materials you build in Engage—such as interactive FAQs and glossaries—to the player on your Articulate Presenter ’13 course. Just publish the interactions as player tabs so learners can access them any time.

Publish to Word

Make it easy for subject matter experts and others to review your interactions by publishing them to Microsoft Word with a single click.

Section 508 Accessibility

Make your interactions widely accessible with Engage's industry-leading Section 508 accessibility support. Now learners with screen readers can easily access course interactions.

Tracking and Reporting

Engage 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 your course to Articulate Online to track and report on interaction activity cost-effectively.

Right-to-Left Languages

Make it easy for learners around the globe to access your interactions. Localize your content with Engage's right-to-left language support. Engage also supports double-byte character sets (DBCS), so you can even translate your interactions into Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Translation Support

Easily translate your interactions into any language to localize your content for learners anywhere. Engage lets you export all text in your interaction steps and the Engage player to Microsoft Word or XML format. After you've translated the text, simply import it back in. Engage preserves all of your formatting.
