Most common formats are supported

If a file format can convert to HTML5, it’s a safe bet we support it. Formats with functionality, transitions and effects or embedded resources are typically not included in the converted content (e.g. spreadsheets, slide transitions, etc). A list of common file extensions we support is shown below:

ppt
pptm
pptx
doc
docm
docx
pdf
png
pps
ppsx
jpg
gif
bmp
odp
odt
ods
txt
xls
xlsm
xlsx
rtf
md (markdown)

Urls

Got your content on a Google document? Share it so that it has a public url and we can convert it to HTML5 for you. We currently support:

google slides
google docs

We even support converting any URL to a screenshot of the entire page, which is embedded as an image.

Embedding content

We also support tracking for a number of urls. For instance, we can track how far through a YouTube video the user has watched and mark the page as completed after they watch 75% of it. Same deal for SoundCloud - get a page completion for listening to some or all of a file! SlideShare presentation? Yep. Imgur gallery - sort of!

youtube
vimeo
imgur
slideshare
soundcloud

H5P

You can drag any H5P package onto CourseAssembler. You won't be able to preview it until you publish (yet!); if the H5P package emits xAPI statements, the page can be marked completed when the H5P package is completed.

Iframes?

You can embed iframes. You can't track anything that goes on inside the iframe because of browser security limitations. Works with all your favorite formats, inluding many online sources. We'll convert it to be web friendly. Use the formats and editors you are comfortable with.

PowerPoint, Google Slides & embedded videos

Many of our competitors just convert the slide pages and leave it at that.

So what happens if you embedded a YouTube video on your slide and get CourseAssembler to convert it? Would it work? Absolutely. We support embedded videos in PowerPoint and Google Slides. We are looking to support embedded audio as well - that's not yet ready.
