Using the Mobile player - features and approaches
Hello fellow e-learning friends,
I have a few musings about the Mobile player. I was wondering if anyone had thought of these things previously, and if there are solutions or not.
a) Can the mobile player be made to start in full screen mode?
b) What methods can/should be used to exit out of the player and get the learner back to the web-based LMS? Do they need to manually exit the player and relaunch the browser? Could an in app web-object be used once they are in the app to access the LMS interface? We are really interested in making the experience as seamless as possible as our learners might not be very tech savvy. (Note: exiting the course takes you to the library page of the player, rather than closing the player and taking you back to the LMS).
c) If the content is downloaded for offline viewing. "Available Offline" , does that automatically preclude sending info to the LMS? That is, even though the content is available offline, if there is a connection, it will still use that connection (not to download the content, which it already has, but to send data to the LMS)?
d) Related to that, if the player is online, does it have to download the content every single time that content is used, or is it cached somewhere? Like it would be in a web browser.
Many thanks for any tips
