Hello D, and welcome to the forums!

I have been able to successfully get Articulate content to work with Moodle.

Here are the steps that I follow:
1. Open your presentation in PowerPoint
2. Select Articulate>Publish
3. Select LMS
4. Select SCORM 1.2 from the LMS dropdown
5. Select the option for ZIP
6. Click Reporting and Tracking...
7. Click OK
8. Click Publish
9. Launch Moodle
10. Log in to Moodle
11. Click 'Turn Editing On'
12. Under Add an Activity select 'SCORM'
13. Give the SCORM a name
14. Select Choose or Update a package button
15. Select Upload a File
16. Browse to and select the ZIP created in step 8
17. Click Upload
18. Click Choose next to the recently uploaded ZIP file
19. Click 'Save Changes'

Your AP content is now in Moodle and set to be tracked! I hope this helps.

Note: Moodle by default has an upload limit of 2MB. You will have to do some configuration to both PHP and to Moodle to allow for bigger uploads if you want to upload presentations that are greater than 2MB.

I have not heard of Moodle. Looks interesting. Thanks for heads-up. Here is info on upload sizes.

I had already followed all the steps you suggested - thanks for confirming I'm not totally a dummy <grin>! However, I first unzipped the files, then I chose PLAYER.html and I got what looked like it was starting and then a blank white screen. This is similar to what had been already posted on the MOODLE forum. I didn't see a fix however, which is why I then wrote in. I then tried lms_index.html (not sure of exact name) and got page not found message. I have now tried your way by selecting the ZIP fine and get the same answer - 404 Page not found.

So - what is the naming convention? What do the files need to be named - what has to be connected for the dots to run???

Help <grin>!

PS: I agree with you on the size problems. We had already noticed that - fixed the upload size in php itself and that allowed us to change the size in Moodle. We can now upload up to 50 MB files.

We've heard from other customers that Moodle does something unusual with URLs that may cause this problem. This is unique to Moodle. You should be launching via index_lms.html, but if you download this player.html file, which has been modified to account for this URL issue in Moodle, and replace your existing player.html, then everything should work as expected.

Re: Moodle and Articulate


First I downloaded the ZIP file and extracted the player.html file you sent. I then went to Moodle and clicked EDIT THIS SCORM. I uploaded the new player.html file. I even went so far as to rename the old file to ensure the new one was loaded. I get the same old 404 error. Page not found.

Is there an email address I can send some screen shots of so you can check my work or perhaps even send you the scorm zip file and you can try loading it?

I need this last step to work before we purchase - just so you don't think you're wasting your time. What I like about articulate is the Bio, eMail and talking head capability - so don't want to give up....

You can submit a case here:
http://support.articulate.com/contact/

Note, however, that it sounds like this may be an issue specific to your LMS installation, which we can't support. But we'll do our best to get you up and running.

Thanks Gabe.
Your customer support is top notch!

If it is a Moodle installation problem - can you suggest what needs fixing?
I'll try the Moodle people as well..

Thanks for all the really great help!

Hello D,

If you can attach your zipped up presentation to a forum post I can try downloading it and loading it in moodle on my machine. If it turns out that it is a moodle problem, I would recommend just posting a question on the moodle forums to see if anyone has any suggestions, as I doubt many people on this forum are moodle experts.
