LMS Tin-Can and Articulate Mobile Player - Not happening....
Apr 08, 2013
We have been using Articulate for a long time and we love it. One issue that is still present is the inability to playback content on iOS devices that is in a password protected LMS environment as it still results in the "Cannot Access Content: - Articulate Mobile Player cannot access this content."
According to the help page:
"Currently, there isn't a way to pass security credentials from a web browser to a mobile application apart from Tin Can API."
We are currently using Blackboard 9 with the latest Service Pack 10 which supports the Tin Can API yet we are still getting the dreaded "Cannot Access Content:".
The current suggestion is to put the content in a non-secure environment (not an option) or to export HTML 5. We don't used any Flash components it is just images, text, scroll boxes... etc.. yet the Safari mobile browser feels a bit clunky in comparison to the Articulate Mobile Player. Also without the AMP there is no option to have the content downloaded for Offline use which is great for people that have a poor Internet connection.
I feel it is a big over-site not to have a username/password entry option within the Articulate Mobile Player (AMP) itself that would bypass a whole lot of issues on iOS and allow content to be accessed by the AMP directly.
Has anybody managed to get Articulate Mobile Player to work with any password protected LMS that has Tin Can API support?
Any feedback would be much appreciated.
