I can insert quizzes to timeline, create questions, but cannot preview them as I created (It shows only blank quiz formats). I cannot save video with smart player, either (there is no such an option).

That's right, I believe it will work. We also think that seeing them successfully in the browser may fix it in Camtasia as well (long story). Can you check?

unfortunately it didn't fix the problem (I created a couple more questions). But it's okay. I hope that it will eventually be fixed as I have a long way to go. My last question is whether I should upload the whole folder (which contains the media folder and the html file) to my local site. Thank you!

OK. This may be fixed in our next release (there was a bug related to this that has been fixed) so hopefully that will help. Sorry for the trouble in the meantime.

Yes- upload the whole folder, and point people at the index.html page (or use the contents of that page elsewhere in your moodle site)

I'm not sure about exactly how Moodle works, but I believe it is an open source Learning Management System (LMS). 

Generally speaking, oftentimes with a LMS, you package things up in a zip file for use with SCORM format. And you upload the single zip file to the LMS. The process of the LMS serving the content to the learners involves unzipping things so that all files are there.

You might post on a forum dedicated to supporting Moodle to see how others are handling content created using Camtasia. They will likely have better and more specific information.

There's like a kabillion different LMS' out there. Each one handles things a bit differently. 

Cheers... Rick :)

Are you using Camtasia on Windows or on Mac?  You have posted this question in both a Camtasia Windows thread and a Camtasia Mac thread?

I am having the same issue, this is incredibly annoying because the quiz is the reason why I bought Camtasia. Please let me know when this is fixed? I am using Camtasia 3 for mac

Did you try the steps from the replies above? (exporting it, looking at the web page from the exported files...)

Is your problem the same as above? A blank window when you preview? Or do you have a different problem?
