Published Storyline slow to appear

Hi

I have created a course that is lots of small storylines projects combined into a multi sco package ( used the scorm packager i got with captivate).  This is published on Moodle and each of the modules reports back to the grade book great and is set to auto continue on Moodle.  the last next button on each module is set to exit course to force it on.

The problem is when i click on the link i am faced with a blank page at least a few seconds before even the loading  circle appears.  This happens between each module on the course.  Knowing our users ( and this is aimed at New starters)  there is bound to be a panic and clicking on things they shouldn't.  We want to  make our induction a s smooth as possible but this ruins it.

We are using IE 8 and we can't change to another browser.

I Selected the HTML 5 options and the for IPAD options.

Any ideas or is there a multo sco packager I should use instead?

Regards

Michelle

Hi Michelle,

Are you experiencing the slow load times only when viewing the HTML5 output, or even on a desktop browser viewing the Flash output?

Or are you saying that the courses load fine outside of your SCO packager? 

HTML5 performance is still a bit lagging, unfortunately, and it's exacerbated by larger courses with a lot of media. 

Thanks for any more detail you can provide.

I'm getting the same isue with small single scorm files, so I'm guessing  that rules out any incompatability between the captivate scorm packager and storyline.

I am sure I unchecked the HTML5 boxes, I will redo and check.  Shame though as some people might vew it on an ipad.

For SCORM packagers, I use this one and have gotten great results for Flash-only SL courses.

That said, I wouldn't expect the packaging to affect course speed once launched.

HTML5 on the iPad, as far I feel, equals "Always Slow."  I have complex SL courses where you press a button and nothing happens for 5-10 seconds (tested on both an iPad2 and iPad4).

Thank you for sharing!

It's a pretty cool tool!
