We are uploading courses to our LMS (Cornerstone). When we launch the file, there is a section to the right of the actual course that appears to show information from the SCORM manifest file.
I have not been able to figure out if this is something I can turn off from either Captivate or from Cornerstone, but I know we don't want it to show (it looks messy, and takes up a lot of the screen).
Screen shot is below -- has anyone had this issue before and been able to remove it?
That's the Table of Contents (TOC) for the SCORM player in the LMS. Since you only have one module in your course that's what it's showing. You cannot control this from Captivate. You need to investigate your LMS settings to find out if the TOC can be turned off. It can in other LMSs.
Thanks -- we'll take a look.
As another option, then -- if we aren't able to turn it off from Cornerstone, if I publish with a TOC that matches the Captivate skin, will it at least look better? (I'll test that, too...)
I'm coming back to this issue after a few months because it is seriously impacting a project I am trying to publish for a client.
Cornerstone does not have an option to turn anything off when uploading a eLearning module. Even if they did, the fact that the screen disappears when publishing as SCORM 1.2 implies that there is something going on with the SCORM 2004 publish that is different.
And, although HTML 5 is a preferred solution, Captivate's HTML 5 version does not support rollover captions, which I use in my tutorial.
Do I have ANY other options here? I would very much appreciate some help.
I am the Admin for our Cornerstone account and publish often.
I cannot find anything within my Admin reach.
And, I have exclusively published via SCORM 1.2.
A couple of questions for you:
Does the phantom window appear when you publish & view locally?
Have you published via Cornerstone previously and NOT seen the phantom window?
You may want to reach out to your Cornerstone "Client Success Manager"
I'm a little late to the party, but I have a few questions:
In your first post you say, "there is a section to the right of the actual course that appears to show information from the SCORM manifest file".
There isn't anything to right in the picture. The info (links) to the left are read from your manifest as Rod said. You need to have your course and module Titles entered in Captivate using the Configure button next to the SCORM selection on the Preferences/Quiz/Reporting.
Most LMS's have an option to launch the content in a "New Window" of "Embedded in the Page".
Not too late to the party -- all help is welcome!
1) Brain got backwards; I meant my "other right." You are correct that I am referring to the window at the LEFT of the course screen.
2) Whether I have the course and module titles entered in Captivate does not seem to make a difference here (I have tried adding them, and removing them) -- the window still shows, it just either shows the names, or some default text. It's not formatted, and frankly, kind of ugly when you compare it to the nicely formatted course.
3) Cornerstone does not give us an option to launch the content in a new window or embedded in the page. The default is to open in a new window, but still shows the frame at the left. BUT -- only when I publish using SCORM 2004.
THAT SAID -- I have tested a few combinations, and I think I found one that works.
SWF, SCORM 1.2, DISABLE ACCESSIBILITY
Disabling Accessibility may have taken care of the tabbing issue. I'm in the process of having other people test the course, so I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Looking at Cornerstone's "Course Publisher", it states: "Cornerstone supports all properly formatted SCORM v1.2 courses up to 250MB..."
Perhaps you can contact your Client Success Manager and see if they are capable of publishing SCORM 2004?
Hope it all works out!
I will do that. You're right in that it may simply be an unsupported version.
As long as the SCORM 1.2 will do the trick, I'll be happy. I believe I went to SCORM 2004 because of the tabbing issue. But if disabling accessibility fixes that issue, I should be good.
I appreciate that there is another Cornerstone Admin out there!
Manager, Instructional Design
Most LMSs give you very little control over the appearance of their TOC. If Cornerstone does give you skins for the TOC that's great, but you are the best one positioned to render judgement on whether or not it looks better.
Okay -- latest update:
When you publish there is a checkbox for Seamless Tabbing in the Advanced section. Did you try that?
That option is available in Captivate 7. I am using Captivate 6.
Open the SCORM_utilities.js and try adding the bolded line, it's:
//Embed SWf using the SWFObject library
var so = new SWFObject(CONFIG.FILENAME, CONFIG.SWFOBJ_ID,
Thank you! This did the trick. 🙂
Final solution is to publish in SCORM 1.2, and edit the SCORM_utilities.js file to fix the tabbing issue.
This is all good information, however, I need to publish in 2004 in order for CSOD to register the survey answers.
So again the question is...How do you loose the TOC when publishing?
I would apppreciate any help I can get!
