Hi David,

Thanks for your immediate reply. I tried the Nouns.story again but it's not working for me. When I try to move the drag and drop option, the frame itself moves in mobile browsers.

I tried this course in three different android mobiles: one has ice cream sandwich (Sony Ericson Xperia mini pro), another one has gingerbread( Micromax a52) and another has froyo (Samsung galaxy fit). In all these mobiles, not only the drag and drop option, the course itself is not working. Why? I ran this course in Firefox and chrome browsers(latest version) in all the mobiles. I also tried it on ipad and it didn't work. Only the launch page is displayed after that it's stops. Please give me a solution.

FYI:I cannot download the demo file you have sent, So i can't test it in my tablet. However, I am able to play it in my desktop, where all the options are working fine.

Hi Srini - The demo I posted links to the story.html file.  I should have noted that I tested your project on an iPad (only tablet I have).

It sounds like you're still having issues with using your file. I'm going to submit your file for the developers to test and review. They have better options for testing and verifying functionality so they'll be able to tell you more about what's going on.

No, Currently i'm anlysing this tool for one of my customer requirement. To develop a Web based elearning content with Scorm Support and the following features.

Compatible for iPhone, iPad, All Android Mobiles and Android Tablets.

The ipad and Tablet version shoud have Notes & Menu in the left tab and animation will be on the right.

Interactivity like Multiple Choice questions and Drag and Drop is required.

Audio should synch with each word in the animation. ( I doubt that it is possible in HTML5 output or iPAD)

I'm looking for Seek bar as you see in the windows media player to forward the animation.

How the menu and notes will be seen in the mobile.

I'm planning to suggest this tool, but i want to see is there any single course that runs on all devices.

Hi David,

I have a problem with the seekbar. When I launch my story.html5 file in a chrome browser, the seekbar is not working properly. When I drag the seekbar the audio starts playing from the beginning and stops immediately. I have some layered pop-up box in my course, After I visit the pop-up and come back to slide layer the audio starts from the beginning and ends immediately. Moreover, if you click the tabs are pop-up box again and again the browser itself closes or the course hangs and close itself.

FYI:

PFA Image and demo course.

Note:

Is it possible to publish my course only for HTML5 by default because after I publish my course, manually i am deleting all the swf files from the published folder and then I send to the client.

I also have problems with Drag&Drop on tablets. I tested on iPad and it worked fine but when testing on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 the objects are not dragable. 

We produced a test course with an earlier version of SL and this version wroks on the Samsung Tab.
Seems that something has changed from that version to the current one.

@ Karthikeyan,

With Storyline, you can create a drag-and-drop interaction (once) and publish it across all devices. Here's how that works.

Seekbars, menu and notes are possible on the iPad and tablets. You can learn more about how features work across devices in this article.

Thanks David, Will check the referred article and get back to you.
