I'm creating a set of Moodle courses for my published textbook. These backed up courses will be Restored to Moodle sites in different schools.
My topics include PowerPoint shows. Few of our students have Microsoft PowerPoint at home, so I've converted these shows into swf files for most students, and into pdf files for those viewing the material on an Apple device. I like the effect of embedding the swf file because the image of the show is much more inviting to click on than a simple line of text, but I don't want the shows to load on the main Moodle page because some topics will have 3 or 4 shows, which will take too much time and data to load if students have dialup.
My solution was to put a jpg thumbnail of the show on the main page (in a Label), then make a link from that image to an html file containing the embedded swf file and a text link to the pdf file. This html file with its associated swf and pdf files was previously uploaded to the Course in a hidden topic, and I made a hot link to that topic. It worked brilliantly on the Moodle site I used to create the Course, but when the Course was moved to a different site, the link was looking for the file in the parent course.
How can I create a link from an image to an html file with two associated files, such that this link will work when the Course is Backed up and Restored elsewhere?
Alternatively, can you suggest another way to achieve the effect I want.
I'm using Moodle 2.3.3.
