Some errors in this learning resource were repaired, but the learning resource may not function as expected.
(hide details...)
The required attribute, href, is missing on element <resource>. Extra information:The resource node is missing the required attribute, 'href'

then I ignore as per other post and I get the following error on the create an assignment page

Some errors in this learning resource were repaired, but the learning resource may not function as expected.

i get the same errors like you. But i can start the course as a learner, but the functionality isnt given. Some pictures etc. dont come up, when it loads.
Did i get it right, you also downloaded Microsoft eLearning courses from MVLS?

In a documentary of Mircosoft it is said, that you have to change the encoding of the "imsmanifest.xml" to ansi, instead of "UTF-8".
When i change it, it doenst work at all, it sais: 
"The learning resource is not valid. The package contains a manifest that contains badly formed XML.".
Have you tested it with the change?

Please let us know, how to fix it!

With regards

Just wanted to keep this thread going as I am also affected by this error.  MS E-learning imports with the same errors but cannot view images while doing learning.  Solitaire demo app works fine.

Windows 2003 SP2
SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1

I attempted to add 8 different e-learning modules (5443 to 5450).

Some errors in this learning resource were repaired, but the learning resource may not function as expected.
The required attribute, href, is missing on element <resource>. Extra information:The resource node is missing the required attribute, 'href'

Is there a way to turn on more detailed debugging so i can see exactly what XML file and what line is affecting this?  I assume it is the imsmanifest.xml however it appears to be valid XML when viewing it in ZIP.

Just a little update.  I don't think i did anything but install Shockwave and the flash plug-ins and it is all working for me.  I was looking at the media files and i saw that some were swf files and i realized i had not installed these active X controls. 

If you are having similar issues, don't forget this!

Moreover, I can get to assign packages, with out any problems.
I can browse through the assignment, hear sound, etc....
What is happening is that the controls at the bottom are not responding.

They are highlinted, but nothing comes up.

I installed Shockware player on tmy client desktop as mentionned before.

Thank you for your help
