Showing a SCORM in a window - Player has a gray backgound.
I was wondering if anyone came up with this issue before.
I am trying to insert a SCORM file produced with presenter in a small window (inside moodle) and I am having problems with the layout. For those who know Moodle, please note that I am choosing not to create a pop-up window, following a request from my client, as they said they had numerous problems in the past with IE, pop up blockers, etc... Plus, I like the way the 'theme' is setup and would only like to display my course in this small window allocated.
I have been pointed that the problem lies in the player that is inside the SCORM and I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix that.
Here is a screenshot that shows my problem. The SCORM player size in Moodle, adapts to size of the SCORM size. And it seems like this file from articulate is not only sending the player, but also the gray backgorund inside the SCORM.
I've tried to 'force' the size of the window in Moodle to the size of the Articulate player, but apparently, the gray background is part of the player and it goes inside the SCORM, and it only seems to take in account the size of the browser window to resize itself, not the size of the Moodle SCORM player.
So as you see here, although the Moodle player window is now the same size as the Articulate player (minus the background), the SCORM is reading the size of the browser window to setup it's size, plus centering the player in it.
A peer has been trying to get help in Moodle Forums but was told that the problem lies in the SCORM file itself, that the backrgound is included in the SCORM.
It will be great to be able to opt not to include the gray background when publishing, but I don't think that's possible, so I'm open to a 'hack' to the code if there is any workaround.
I would even be happy if it was even possible to align the player to the top of the gray background, as I can easily resize that window in Moodle so the gray background will be there but hidden.
Thanks for your help!
