I recently emailed a shortlist of good SCORM development resources to a colleague, and figured I should probably post a list here, too. This is a quickie list, and I’m sure I’m leaving someone out. If you know of any resources I’ve missed, please add a link in the comments. This list is presented in no particular order.
While working on a recent web project at work, I wondered if I should go for a fixed-width layout or stick with my preference for fluid layouts. Fixed-width layouts are certainly easier to manage, but they just feel so… rigid. With the boom in larger monitors, I also wondered if fluid sites start presenting a problem due to being too wide. I decided to check around the web to see what others are doing.
I recently tried to import contacts into Gmail and encountered the cryptic (and completely useless) error message “Oops. An unknown error occurred while importing your contacts”.
Turns out Gmail chokes if it encounters a duplicate email address during the contact import process. It also appears this error only occurs with the latest version of Gmail. Therefore, a nice and easy workaround is to switch to the “Older version” of Gmail by clicking the “Older version” link (top right corner), import the contacts, then switch back to the newer version of Gmail.
Worked for me.
Matt Wilcox posted an interesting argument about the CSS3 standard; I think the central points of the argument can be applied to SCORM and where we’re potentially headed with SCORM 2.0.
Here’s a list of common pop-up blockers with links to the manufacturer’s instructions for handling said blocker. Enjoy.
