2188058 - Wrapper with additional buttons for SCORM 2004 content


When a user launches content, navigation buttons (i.e. continue, exit, suspend, and/or etc.) appear at the bottom of the course window.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Import a SCORM 2004 package into learning (using the content import tool) >

  2. While going through the import wizard, choose to create a new item for that content >
  3. Assign the new item to a user when the import is complete >

  4. Launch the newly assigned content >

  5. Note the content launches inside a wrapper that has navigation buttons.


This is expected learning behavior for SCORM 2004 content, however the navigation buttons can be hidden by editing the manifest file.


Some navigation buttons can be hidden from the wrapper. This is done by adding the following section to the manifest file, and import the content again after the change is made:


The following is an example of hiding the exit button in the wrapper:

<!--The metadata node simply declares which SCORM version this course operates under.-->

 <schema>ADL SCORM</schema>
   <schemaversion>2004 2nd Edition</schemaversion>
<!-- There is just one organization. The organization contains just one item.-->
<organizations default="sample_default_org">
 <organization identifier="sample_default_org">
   <title>Sample Single SCO</title>
      <item identifier="item_1" identifierref="resource_1">

*More details can be found in the Help portal (link).

Even removing all the navigation buttons, the wrapper cannot be changed from the manifest file and will always be present.

Please Note: Content modification, manipulation, and troubleshooting are to be performed by the content developer and/or vendor. If a modification to the actual wrapper itself is desired, then consulting with the SAP Professional Services team is advised.
