[Xerte] interesting problem when using SCORM in Moodle

Does it fail even when the package is just run locally, and you've
clicked through the API errors to run the piece? Let's take moodle out
of the picture first...

Subject: [Xerte] interesting problem when using SCORM in Moodle


Hi all


Been experimenting with Moodle using some Xerte RLOs and uncovered a
problem. Exporting a XOT RLO as scorm and importing into Moodle using
the 'add an IMS package' works fine and runs as should. However, setting
the 'default size' in XOT for the RLO to either Full Screen or Fill
Screen breaks the RLO in Moodle - it completely disappears and leaves
the following error :


Webpage error details


User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1;
Trident/4.0; chromeframe; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152;
.NET CLR 3.5.30729; MJStf; InfoPath.2; MJStf)

Message: Object expected

 If I export the RLO as a zip package and then link to the index.htm
page it displays fine from Moodle with the screen default size set.


Any ideas why this might be? I'd prefer it if we could use the full
screen option so that the RLO resizes to match the users browser window
- and still import as scorm (most our students will use laptops which
chop off the bottom of the default sized RLO)
