A bit of an issue with multiple (SCORM 2004) SCO's

It's been a while!

Here's some background info:

So we are using Lectora to launch multiple SCO's, each course has 4 SCO's:
  • SCO number 1 is a standard 'CBT'* course (back and next buttons, etc) with standard lectora javascript.
  • The other 3 SCO's are made by lectora and launch content from somewhere else for a 3D course (picture an xbox game but for learning) with custom event handlers etc so only certain CMI data is sent appropriately (everything in regards to these 3 3D SCO's works fine).

The problem:

We have two symptoms of one problem with our LMS or perhaps more acurately the way Lectora is interacting with it and they are best described as follows (*pretend you are the user*):
  • So you're in the LMS, the SCO menu with the 4 SCO's is available on the left of the screen 100% of the time, you have to do SCO 1 first BUT upon clicking on a '3D SCO' (IE: SCO 2, 3, or 4) the whole LMS shuts down.
  • Also: upon exiting SCO 1, the whole LMS shuts down the same way (not just SCO 1). So, then if you go back to the SCO 1 after opening the LMS again you are stuck on the last visited page in SCO 1 and on an infinite loop of the LMS closing whenever they exit the first SCO, or by clicking on SCO 2, 3 or 4 from within SCO 1.

* 'cbt' SCO = 'SCO 1'.

Further info:
  • Note: Between SCO's 2, 3 and 4 this is not an issue and they work perfectly fine and are navigable.
  • When we make all our SCO's purely Lectora based (and get rid of our custom stuff), we have this problem with all 4 SCO's.

Alright, I'm not too good at explaining things, and I'm sure I haven't given enough information, but hopefully somebody who has experienced this can understand what I'm getting at. I am more than happy to answer any question of info I'm sure I've left out.

Thanks for reading.

    It sounds like the Lectora Online course is not communicating properly with the LMS. What LMS is it? Can you send a sample title to [email protected] and reference this blog post? Sounds like something we should get figured out.
