Description field empty after publishing SCORM to LMS

Dec 14, 2017

We filled in the description field when publishing the story file to a SCORM package. After uploading it to our LMS (we are using Taleo Learn), the description field is empty.

I'm trying to find out whether there is a metadata-tag 'description' missing in the XML-files but I can't find any information about this. 

Anyone experiencing the same problem or having experience with the XML-files to change it in there manually?

I now found the sentence "Currently, the course description only appears on information cards in the Articulate Mobile Player app." on the following page 

So maybe, it is a bug in Storyline 2? I will create a case at Articulate Support.

I got an email from Articulate Support that indeed the description field is only visible when opening your course to Articulate Mobile Player App, so it is not visible in any other LMS. 

But it is possible to fill in the description of a course after publishing it in Taleo Learn. When you add &command=editpage at the end of the URL of your course, then you open an edit page where you can fill in the description and even change the title of your course, if necessary.

More info: see "Editing a Course that is Being Played with the LearnCenter's Standard or Classic Course Player " (Doc ID 2321826.1) of the Taleo Knowledge Library
