I'm pretty lost! I had the misfortune of developing a bunch of new Course Material in Captivate 5.5 before my administrator was able to turn on SCORM in our Blackboard (CE 8).
We now have SCORM (yay), but I'm afraid that I may have developed a pile of useless material!
I am new to both SCORM and Captivate 5.5 so I was making a lot of assumptions because the information provided in manuals for Captivate and Blackboard is pretty basic. (Excuses, I know)
This is the approach that I took. All my courses are split into modules. I want the course participant to be able to access each module individually BUT I also would like them to be able to go from start to finsih without having to go back to an index. To enable this, I made a seperate project for each module and provided link buttons to the previous and next modules on the first and last page of each.
I have also created the tests as sepereate projects (rather than providing one test at the end of the course material, I have provided individual test questions that are hidden throughout the projects.
So what I ended up with after publishing each project, unzipping each package and recreating a new zipped folder containing the SWF and HTM files for each module and test as well as all the supporting material.
I have had success adding the HTML files to my course contest page. They have played beautifully inside Blackboard and the inter-project links have been flawless.
Now that I actually have SCORM turned on, I think this approach may have been bad!
Now I see that uploading SCORM files is a whole different process and doesn't allow me to have links between project. WHICH IS NO FUN!
Any ideas? Thanks a bunch!
