Release Notes

This is the first attempt at the toolbar project.

See below for the limitations of this alpha release. However it is capable of producing scorm 2004 compliant packages of the type available in the example package download.

In particular it is aimed at creating simple quizzes with choice options or textbox responses.

Limitations of Alpha release

  • Error trapping structure in place but not yet fully implemented.
  • Exported images not listed in manifest file (minor point)
  • add-in not digitally signed and so macro-security level needs to be medium or lower when adding in the add-in. (although it can then be returned to a higher level).
  • relies on LMS to provide navigation inbetween pages (this may be correct and unavoidable in fact).
  • Resulting packages not yet tested on Firefox.
  • Code could do with a little tidy up (although generally fairly carefully constructed).
  • A "read" page is worth one mark which may often not want to be the case (e.g. instructions at start of quiz).
  • documentation needs writing.
  • Stores SCORM interaction types as Other rather than using intended SCORM interaction types. Does not make full use of SCORM 2004 interaction type fields such as correct answer.
  • No easy way to run or test SCORM package outside of a LMS environment.
  • Hyperlinks are not exported.
