When I recently reorganized my SWFObject examples (adding a bunch of SWFObject 2.0 examples), a few links were accidentally hosed. Links fixed. Sorry ’bout that. There are now over 30 examples using over 50 files, and I just tested each and every one of them to ensure they work. 🙂 (Thanks to Winston for letting me know about the dead links.)
Just an FYI: The SWFObject section of my site has been updated with SWFObject 2.0 examples, including: Using SWFObject with ajax (xmlhttprequest) Using ExpressInstall Toggling a SWF’s visibility Passing querystrings to a SWF using PHP Setting the z-index and wmode (allowing page elements to overlap the Flash SWF) SWFObject has two publishing options: static publishing and dynamic publishing. I’m happy to report that every SWFObject 2.0 example on my site has both a static and a dynamic example. I also included instructions for most of the examples. Hopefully people will find them useful! 🙂 The SWFObject section is located at …
Funny stuff. 🙂 The Adventures of Bollywood Blackboardwala Here’s a small series of humorous episodes related to recent Blackboard and Open Source Learning Management Systems. The mashups are made with snippets of classic Hindi Bollywood films, overlaid with user created subtitles, from a fun online tool called BombayTV from Grapheine. The role of Blackboardwala is played by none other than Amitabh Bacchan, of course. http://metamedia.typepad.com/metamedia/2008/04/the-adventures.html [link no longer available] [from e-Literate]
A recent post in the e-learning development forum reminded me that I forgot to post some unpublished Captivate variables I dug up a while back.
Sorry to give everyone the runaround, but after trying Google Code for a month, I found it seriously lacking and not very fun to use. Therefore as of tonight, all of my SCORM files (and other goodies) are back at pipwerks.com on a dedicated downloads page.
The SCORM API wrapper (v1.1.7) has been updated to automatically set the initial course status and the exit status.
The point of my SCORM API wrapper is to make working with SCORM easier. These two new functions are intended to ensure you follow best practices with your SCORM code while reducing the amount of tedious code you will need to write for your course.
Ok, I just had to write a quick blurb about this one: in about 3.5 years of using SCORM in my own course code, I had never used
cmi.core.exit (SCORM 1.2) or
cmi.exit (SCORM 2004). Seems incredibly daft of me now that I’ve taken a few minutes to review the documentation.
Today, I’m going to explain how to add SCORM code to a plain HTML file. This example uses SCORM 1.2 syntax, but as I explain at the end of the tutorial, it’s really easy to edit the code to use SCORM 2004 syntax.
