Print Quizmaker results w/javascript #screenr #Articulate

Submitted by Kingsley ๐Ÿ‘‘ on Mon, 10/05/2009 - 12:59

In the Articulate Forums Squid asks:
"I'm using a kiosk that has the toolbar locked down to prevent internet surfing. Is there a way to print to a network printer without a print icon?"
Basically all that needs to be done is to create a button with a hyperlink to javascript:window.print();
I created a quick screenr to demo it.

My friend Greg got a new HD cam a few months ago and we've been itching to shoot something.
We decided to do a cooking show spoof. We both loving cooking too...
Our wives graciously volunteered to star as our chefs.
We shot the whole thing in about 2 hours and hope to edit it this week.
So maybe this weekend we will have a Grand Opening!
Here are a few seconds of video I took with my phone.

Mobile Themed my Drupal site.

Submitted by Kingsley ๐Ÿ‘‘ on Thu, 10/01/2009 - 16:07

I wanted to offer a 'lighter' theme for mobile visitors so I tried out the Mobile Tools module
I got it to work for me after I made some customizations.

It is very good module that has a lot of options...
The method that appealed to me the most was an option to display a block asking the user if they would like to switch. It even detects if its a mobile user browsing the desktop version. That way you don't have to have the block up all the time.

Drupal, blogapi, Twitter, PixelPipe &Android

Submitted by Kingsley ๐Ÿ‘‘ on Wed, 09/30/2009 - 16:31

I like all the items mentioned in the title.
I use the drupal twitter module to send tweets when I add content to my site. I use pixelpipe to send content to my site from my android phone via drupal's blogapi module.
Unfortunatly the blogapi module does not trigger the twitter module.
One work around is using the actions/trigger module but that doesnt pipe the URL though tinyurl first.
Here is my solution.
I altered the twitter_actions.module so that it automagicly converts the url (using existing code)

SCORM & Articulate: Help regarding multiple SCOs in 1 package?

Submitted by Kingsley ๐Ÿ‘‘ on Wed, 09/30/2009 - 10:22

We haven't really used SCORM much because our LMS doesn't have an easy way to upload it. That issue will soon be resolved.
I would like to be able to publish several Articulate courses and then combine them into one package. I don't really even know where to begin.
The goal is to let the learner move from one course (SCO) to the next seamlessly.
I assume I publish each course and then edit the existing xml files or create new ones...
Hopefully there is a free/opensource solution that will automate this.
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
