Please help...iPad - How to add content to App library. Help!!

Hoping someone can help with this - I would like the ability to utilize an iPAD to view/interact. This Articulate Storyline project would be within a Moodle site - version 2.4. It works great on a laptop PC/Mac but the viewer on the  iPAD kicks everything to the right side so all content is not visible. Also the ability to hover over an object does not work. My thought was to download the Articualte App and try this out though the reviews are not the best I thought I would give it a try.

After downloading the app it comes up with no content. How do I add project to the library? What is the best method to publish my Articualte Storyline project so it will appear in the library? How can the app be used within Moodle or what else might someone suggest?

Hi Gail,

I don't believe that Moodle supports the Tin Can API, which you would need to be able to launch the course in the mobile player and report the data back to your LMS. Further information on that is detailed here.  If you're not interested in tracking or reporting out on the results, you could place the course on a web server and then when using that link to the story.html on your iPad it would open within the mobile player (if you have published with that option).

Thanks for responding Ashley -

I'm not clear on exactly how to get the link to open using the mobile player on the iPAD. I have downloaded the app but it simply gives me a blank screen. I see an icon for the library but how do I add/access the files.

A walk through on the process would be very helpful.

Hi Gail,

If your LMS doesn't support the Tin Can API you won't be able to open the content within the mobile player, but if it does or you've posted the content to a web server (there are a few free options here you could try) you'll then need to use the link to the course and open it from your ipad. So if you email it to yourself or type it into mobile Safari's address bar - you'll then  see it open within the Articulate Mobile player. 

If you'd just like to test a few out and see how they appear - you may want to try accessing a few of the ones here in the community showcase, the first one on "Accident Investigation Demo" opens in the mobile player.

Also important to note that support for security issues in Moodle 2.4 ends next month - you should upgrade asap to keep your site secure against future security issues.

Also - support for Mobile devices in the SCORM player improves a lot in Moodle 2.6 and higher - i(although we still haven't completed native tin can support yet)
