    Hi,

    I already install the scorm cloud format plug in and mod in moodle 2.3.2, create new apps on my SCORM cloud and configure the SCORM cloud plugin in my moodle using the correct Web Service API URL, app id and secret.

    But when I tried to follow this guideline to upload a SCORM formated course to my moodle using SCORM Cloud format, after I hit the "Save and return to course" I always get an error "Exception - Invalid XML Response from web service call, expected tag, instead received: " . Please advise how to fix this

    Hi

    I also installed scorm cloud course format and mod in Moodle 2.3.2 and added the API details. I tried to add a SCORM package to the course format and as an activity I got the following error. 

    Exception - Invalid XML Response from web service call, expected tag, instead received:

    Please advise how to fix this. This is urgent.

    I got that error one time, and took off the trailing api directory within the plugin setup... instead of

    Web Services API: http://cloud.scorm.com/EngineWebServices/api I now have

    Web Services API: http://cloud.scorm.com/EngineWebServices

    and the error goes away.  HOWEVER, the Moodle is not reading correctly the data being returned by ScormCloud - instead of a link to the file that was uploaded (successfully added to my library) it is printing to the screen the following (secret key masked)  SCORM Cloud ConstructUrl : http://cloud.scorm.com/EngineWebServices//api?appid=WK7JZOPTNZ&applib=php&filter=0593d144-e801-4134-85d9-c1d55f22941e&method=rustici.course.getCourseList&origin=rusticisoftware.moodle.2.0-2011110200&ts=20121031222151&sig=4c#####

    stat : ok

    It is possible the error is caused by the Trial account at Scorm Cloud?  Or do I need to enable something else from within Moodle to get the plug-in to work correctly?

    I'm getting the same error "Exception - Invalid XML Response from web service call, expected tag, instead received" when uploading a SCORM Cloud course in Moodle.  Has any progress been made on resolving this issue?

    Hi everyone, 

    After much consideration we have decided to leave maintenance and ongoing plugin support up to the community who is using it. We built these sample plugins to give users an example of how you could integrate with SCORM Cloud. We are leaving our code out there for our users to extend  as they wish. If you have any questions, feel free to send them to us at support@scorm.com. Thank you!

    We bought SCORM cloud plugin to meet our international clients requests but what a pity - here mentioned error is unresolved ?

    Did some one from support do anything ?

    And if this is unresolved - why your company not described in purchase page!

    his "SCROM and MOODLE integration" sounds me like nice marketing trick till someone pays few hundred dollars.

    If you are having an issue with SCORM Cloud, please let us know in a support ticket- support@scorm.com. When it comes to Moodle, we had to make a tough call not to continue further development. We're hoping that the Moodle community will continue to support this extension as the Moodle platform evolves. We'll do our best to help troubleshoot the problem if it's within SCORM Cloud. 

    Another option that you may want to consider if playing SCORM 2004 content through Moodle is the goal, and the Mod isn't working properly.... Dispatch provides a similar solution. 

    I hope that helps- again, please let us know what your specific issue is and we'll do our best to help.

    Thanks,

    Tammy

    It's the same error like described here from other users:

     "Exception - Invalid XML Response from web service call, expected tag, instead received:"

    That error could be due to file size. I'll go ahead and open a ticket for you to help troubleshoot further.

     

    Thanks,
