How can I make a Canvas course automatically launch SCORM content?

We have a group of self-paced, on demand courses that we are considering supporting with the SCORM player feature in Canvas.

These courses will have no instructor, no discussions or interaction of ANY type outside the SCORM content.

In a nutshell, the Canvas course will contain just one graded assignment in the gradebook.

Our intent would be to provide the student URL's to such a course in their student portal (SIS). The student experience we'd like for students enrolled in such a canvas course include:

  1. student clicks the link to their course in their student portal
  2. the student visits the course home page & the SCORM content automatically launches
  3. ancillary navigation elements (discussions, syllabus, etc.) are hidden
  4. the student exits the SCORM content, his grade and progress are saved in the gradebook and the student is returned back to the student portal

Has anyone used Canvas courses in this way?
