Hello Colleagues!

We are just starting to experiment with Xerte Online Toolkits here at Southampton.

I've been testing creating simple Learning Objects with Xerte, exporting to SCORM 2004 and importing as a SCORM package into Blackboard 9.1 SP8 with the latest version of the Rustici SCORM Engine 2011.8.10809.

Has anyone had any success getting results from a quiz within a XOT learning object going back into the Grade Centre?  I've been trying with various options and have yet to be successful.  

When loading the object into Blackboard I receive this notification:

"The importer determined that this manifest is most likely compatible with the SCORM 2004 standard. However, there is a resource node with a scormtype (lower case 't') attribute indicating that this manifest may have been intended to be a SCORM 1.2 manifest and thus may not play correctly."

I've also noticed that the full screen button doesn't usually have an effect.

Has anyone compliled a list of known issues with using Xerte Objects in Blackboard?

And if anyone has a nice example learning object that works well with Blackboard using SCORM and passing scores back to the Grade Centre I would be very interested in testing it here, so as to be sure that our Xerte OT server is set up correctly and not the cause of the difficulties I've been having.

Thanks, and happy Fridays!
