How Variable Magic For Storyline Works

Transfer Variables Between Articulate Storyline Projects

Create eLearning activities, games, and/or text entry interactions in one Storyline module, and then carry the same user variable data into the next. Crystallise learning through a connected approach, creating a fluid, unique experience for every learner.

View & Edit Variable Data In WordPress User Profiles

Store your variable data in WordPress so it can be viewed by learners and tutors. It’s a great way to capture any custom data from Storyline about the learner for tutors to identify gaps in learning, provide feedback, and understand the learner’s engagement level.

Display Variables Anywhere With A Simple Shortcode

Our handy shortcode enables you to display dynamic content at the drop of a hat. Display as many custom variables as you like – it’s a quick, simple way to tailor your course to individual learners, or to build your own custom report screens or activity leaderboards in WordPress!

“Variable Magic For Storyline allows us to connect our eLearning courses together for a more tailored and personalised online user experience. The possibilities really are endless!”

Do I need to be able to code to use Variable Magic?

No – we provide the Javascript code you need to use Variable Magic in Storyline, which you can find in our Knowledge Base. You’ll just need administrative access to your WordPress site in order to upload your content and set things up.

Is your plugin compatible with LearnDash / LifterLMS / LearnPress?

Though you don’t need any other plugin installed to use Variable Magic, our plugin will work absolutely fine with Storyline content published to any lesson/topics pages in your WordPress LMS platform.

We use Tin Canny Reporting to upload our Storyline files to WordPress. Is your plugin compatible?
