      Description

      When you use a course format of 'Single Activity' Scorm object, the option for Student skip structure page only has options for 'First Access'or 'Never'. The option for 'Always' is not available.
      This is because at the moment on exiting a SCORM package it returns the user to the homepage of the course - if we just added "always" back to the list it would result in a constant redirect - closing the window would return the user to the homepage of the course which would trigger the re-load of the scorm window.
      The suggestion is to modify the code so that if the "skip content structure" and "always" options were used it redirected the user to the site homepage instead of the course homepage.
      At the moment the benefit of the 'Single Activity' course format is lost because the student either needs to click the Activity within the course, or an extra click on the Enter button.
