I have a question about forma - apologies if it has been answered elsewhere.
I believe a responsive template may be coming in v2 - when is this likely to be available?
I have uploaded a responsive SCORM 1.2 LO but as it appears inside a lightbox window it does not adapt responsively to the screen size. There doesn't seem to be an option in forma.lms to launch the LO in a new window/tab (and the content tool doesn't either).
Until a responsive template is available, is there a workaround to launch LOs in a new window/tab?
welcome to the community!
You're right, Scorms are launched in a lightbox window that normally should adapt responsively to the screen size. At least, it does with most of the authoring tools. Don't know which tool you are using but, for instance, scorms made with Articulate Presenter or Storyline don't communicate the right size to the Lms, so 10-odd pixels are cut off. We're aware of that, but in this case it's Articulate's fault.
We happen to produce most of our content with Articulate products and this was a big issue for us. The workaround we use (and we suggest) is the same you already thought about.
Inside our Articulate projects, we select the option of having our Scorm open in a new tab.
This solves, and everything works fine.
Unfortunately, Forma doesn't have an option to open a scorm in a new tab, you should find a way to do that with the content.
If your tool doesn't allow you to do that via its interface (are you sure?), I guess the only workaround is manually editing your manifest file to obtain the desired behavior.
Thank you for your welcome and reply. My responsive LO was created using the ADAPT responsive e-learning framework.
I was seeing whether it would play well inside forma but for mobiles I think a responsive lms template is required. When do you predict v2 of forma.lms with a responsive template will be released?
