Setting Default Screen Size

Hi Ron...(Merry Christmas to you, too!)

It also depends on how/where your course will be deployed. With the courses that I develop, the same course may be hosted by different users in different ways...via a learning management system, on a corporate intranent (HTML), or via CD. I've found 800 x 600 to be the best default to ensure that it can be seen without scrolling for all users.

Hello All,

Merry Christmas!

Deciding on what to set my default screen size to when creating a course. I want the displayed course to take up as much of the screen as possible without requiring scrolling (either horizontal or vertical). I would say that the majority of learners will be using laptops, so that would be my reference (although there will be a number using desktops with bigger screens - so I'm trying to find a happy medium).

I read some of the threads and tried different sizes. What I noticed was that when I changed the size from 800 x 600 to 1024 x 768 (or higher), the screen size changed but the actual course size displayed on the screen stayed the same. For example, at 800 x 600, there is no white space around the course and the course is centered. However, as I increase the resolution, the white rectangle gets bigger, the course display stays the same size and it is now justified to the top, left corner.

Any suggestions?
