Hi all,

I don't think it is a security issue as the files are going into Blackboard but i think it is more of a 'the XML file isn't in the right place' type error.

Blackboard files that array in the same 'folder' are most likely not stored in the same filesystem folder which is required.

If you have the content system then on our system we upload as a Theme Package which unpacks them into a folder and keeps them all together. On older Blackboard systems and possibly those without Content System then you could upload a Package File and choose the unzip action.

Anyway, I'm not sure SCORM will solve the problem as i've had real problems recently with SCORM packages and the blackboard scorm player and i know someone else has has a problem with another vle, yet Moodle seems to be very happy with them. Its something that is to be revisited soon.

Subject: [Xerte] Problems exporting Xerte project

Dear all,
I am a medical student who is currently creating an e-tutorial for my university. I have finished the project and have exported the learning object zip.file with both html5 and flash versions. When the zip is unpacked and I try then to run the .html file I get the error message “the project data has not loaded”.  This occurs regardless of which web browser I use (internet explorer, chrome). The aim of what I am trying to achieve is to export the learning object, then to place it onto the virtual learning environment “blackboard” at my host institution.

Any help you could give me to resolve this problem would be very much appreciated,

Kind regards

Kathryn Duncan
