Currently the SCORM modules are launched through external tools under submission tab in the student app.
When the external tool is clicked a new window is opened. Unfortunately the new window only launches in portrait mode. If the external tools can be enabled to work both landscape / portrait , it will be great for various reasons.
For e.g. the storyline modules can be accessed via external tools and would work brilliantly in landscape mode.
This sort of feature works in all other popular apps like Twitter. The main twitter stream is always portrait, but when you click on a tweet with an external link, the new window will work in both portrait / landscape mode.
