SCORM wrapper examples tested successfully in SumTotal TotalLMS 7.6

The pipwerks SCORM wrapper examples have been successfully tested in SumTotal TotalLMS 7.6. FYI, the examples’ imsmanifest.xml files required some modifications (the old manifests worked fine in the ADL test suites, but coughed a little when used in SumTotal TotalLMS 7.6). The JavaScript, ActionScript and HTML in the examples remain unchanged. If you’ve previously downloaded the examples, I suggest you download the updated versions to get the newer manifests. Of course, if you’re a pro at manifests (Aaron?), you could always make better ones… making the imsmanifest is my least favorite part of working with SCORM. As always, if you test these in your LMS, please let me know — even if it doesn’t work! Thanks 🙂

SCORM wrapper updates (JavaScript and ActionScript)

JavaScript SCORM_API_Wrapper.js now at v1.1.3. Includes important typo correction. classes (AS2 & AS3) now at v1.01. Includes check for ExternalInterface availability and presence of required pipwerks JavaScript wrapper.

SCORM API Wrapper updated to 1.1.1

Found a small bug when using the wrapper with Flash (AS2): functions that return string values (such as were coming out ‘undefined’. (grr)

Explicitly typing the return value as a string seems to make Flash happy.

Loading Captivate files into an AS3 Flash SWF

I researched the different methods available for AVM1 to AVM2 communication, and discovered there are a few workarounds that can enable the AS3 SWF to communicate with the AS2 SWF. I spent the entire day whipping up a Captivate-specific proof-of-concept.
