Enjoy the Adobe Presenter Appiness!

The Appiness is here and it’s here to stay! And we are proud to present the Adobe Presenter Mobile App to access your Adobe Presenter 8 courses on tablet devices. Exciting, isn’t it? :)

What’s even more exiting is that you do not have to create two separate courses for Desktop and device consumption. Just publish your course as a SWF and the same course works beautifully on both your iPad and Desktop. You can also track your AICC compliant and Connect courses when accessing them on the iPad. Can’t believe? Even I couldn’t believe it, when I first heard it from the engineers, so I gave it a spin and here are the steps I followed to create and view the course on iPad.

I created a short course on Hospital Hygiene with Continue reading…

Solution to Captivate SCORM course freeze issue on some LMSs

When I try to take Captivate SCORM course on some Learning Management Systems (LMS) which support both SCORM and AICC, Captivate SCORM course freezes on load with “Loading…” screen and does not move forward. This is usually seen with only few LMSs which support both SCORM and AICC. When I look at the SCORM API calls to LMS, I don’t see Initialize API being called at all. When dug deeper, I found that Captivate course was loaded as SCORM course by LMS but course was trying to make AICC calls.  Continue reading…

Solution to Inconsistent LMS reporting with Captivate SCORM courses on Mozilla based browsers

Always Captivate SCORM courses have worked fine when I have taken them on Internet explorer but on Mozilla based browsers there have been inconsistencies in reporting course or interaction data. I see that score and status are not updated to most recent activity. The reason for this different behavior of Captivate SCORM courses on IE and Mozilla based browsers is that both use different mechanisms to transfer reporting data from Captivate SWF to the Javascript in enclosing HTML.

On IE, Captivate 4, Action script 2 courses use FS Command as transfer mechanism and Actionscript 3 courses use External Interface based mechanism. Captivate 5 courses only support Actionscript 3 and use External Interface mechanism to transfer reporting data. For Actionscript 2 based courses FSCommand is best transfer mechanism and External Interface mechanism is the best for Actionscript 3 based courses.

On Mozilla based browsers, Captivate courses use Local Connection based mechanism to transfer reporting data from the SWF to Javascript. Local connection based mechanism is unreliable, does not support transferring large data. Local Connection mechanism does not 100% guarantee transfer of data. This is the reason why we see sometimes inconsistent reporting data with Captivate courses when taken on Mozilla based browsers.

So, moving from Local connection based data communication mechanism to External Interface based mechanism on Mozilla based browsers solves the inconsistent data reporting problem. There is simple one line change in SCORM html template which will make Captivate SCORM courses to use External Interface mechanism on Mozilla based browsers.
This issue will be fixed in the upcoming version of Captivate.

Please follow the steps described below. Same for both Captivate 4 and Captivate 5.
• Please go to $CaptivateInstallFolder/Templates/Publish/SCORM/1_2
• You will find Default.htm and Custom.htm
• Please go to line 31, “g_intAPIType = 1;” and change it to “g_intAPIType = 0;”
• Follow the same steps for the Default.htm and Custom.htm in folder $CaptivateInstallFolder/Templates/Publish/SCORM/2004

Modified SCORM1.2 HTML template for Captivate 5 is attached

Modified SCORM1.2 template is also shared on Acrobat.com Default.zip
