Articulate Storyline Tips & Tricks

How To Embed Your Storyline Courses In WordPress [Manual and with Plugins]

In this video, I’ll show you how you can upload your published Storyline course to WordPress. Manual or with a plugin. I give you some options that I think are the best plugins.

My Recommendation

Insert Or Embed Articulate Content into WordPress Plugin

I tested the different plugins and the easiest way to get Storyline courses into WordPress is with the Insert Or Embed Articulate Content into WordPress Plugin. The plugin has many different options like full-screen mode and xAPI support for Storyline and Rise.


If you have a finished Storyline course you don’t necessarily need a Learning Management System to put your course online. You can place your Storyline courses on your own WordPress website for instance if you want to demo them or use them as an online portfolio. You can do this manually and upload the Storyline course with FTP or use a plugin.

But before we discuss how to upload a Storyline Course to your website let’s look at how you must publish your WordPress course.

You have a finished course and you want to publish it so you can upload it to your WordPress website. Click in Storyline on ‘publish’. Now the publish window appears. Let’s assume that we gonna place our course files with FTP on our website. In that case, you choose WEB. Give the course an engaging title and choose a folder on your desktop to save it.

Check if under publish ‘Entire project Is visible is selected and click on the button ‘Publish. Storyline will export your course to HTML.

Now if Storyline is finished let’s click the folder icon to open the folder with the HTML files. I also open Filezilla. This is an FTP client where I can connect to my server where my website is hosted. I Connect to the server. At the root of the server, I create a folder named ‘course’. And now I transfer my Storyline course HTML files to the server. The last thing I’ll do is change the name of story.html to index.html.

When I’m ready I can log on to my WordPress website and create a post or page and link to the e-learning course.

This solution is quick but you can’t report any data about your course if you want to.

So If you want to report data from your course or are not that technical there are also a couple of plugins where you can upload your Storyline course to WordPress.

1. Insert Or Embed Articulate Content into WordPress Plugin

The first plugin is the ‘Insert Or Embed Articulate Content into WordPress’ plugin. This plugin is developed by Brian Batt from This plugin has a free version with limited features and a paid version. With the plugin, you can upload your zip file. The plugin will subtract it for you and you can add the link to your WordPress posts or pages. One disadvantage is that you can’t do any reporting with this plugin. The pro version of the plugin costs 99 dollars for a one year license.

2. Tin Canny Learndash Reporting plugin

The second plugin is the Tin Canny Learndash Reporting plugin by Uncanny Owl. This plugin is very useful if you already use LearnDash on your WordPress website.
