Hi there. Could someone tell me how this is supposed to work please? I ticked the Enable external package type in the admin settings (on a 2.1) I uploaded via ftp a zipped SCORM pack - it is publicly accessible. I typed in the URL like http://www.MYSITE.com/testscorm.zip/imsmanifest.xml. (I confess I guessed the last bit so that might be the problem) The SCORM just comes up as empty. When I upload this SCORM pack in the normal way through Moodle it does work fine so I know it is not a SCORM issue -it is me, not knowing how to operate the external URL feature. So I'd appreciate some help!
the "Downloaded Package" option lets you set the url for the zip - the "External SCORM manifest" option allows you to select the imsmanifest.xml from an extracted SCORM - this option(external manifest) will only work reliably if the URL uses the same base URL as your Moodle install - eg:
But - if you use the Zip - (downloaded package) it doesn't matter what url is used as Moodle will download a copy of the zip and extract it internally for use.
hope that helps/makes sense!
Ah thanks! It makes perfect sense -except- I got an error message as below - but the URL is correct - I know - because if you click on it you are prompted to download the zip file from the site
Unknown exception related to local files (Can not fetch file form URL)
I will go and try on another Moodle
