Scorm Cloud & cmi.comments_from_learner.n.comment

Hi,

 

I'm trying to use the "Learners Comments" features in Scorm Cloud which calls for using the cmi.comments_from_learner.n.comment variable associated with Scorm 2004. However, it seems Lectora doesn't have this variable listed as part of its reserved variables and I don't seem to be able to create it.

Anyob=ne have any suggestions?

    You can try writing directly to LMS via standard Lectora JavaScript functions:
    MySetValue( lmsVar, lmsVal )

    Try adding an action "Run JS" and enter this JS:
    MySetValue( "cmi.comments_from_learner.1.comment", "hello" )

    I reviewed your question with our developers and the cmi.comments_from_learner.n.comment variable is one of the optional variables. That's why it's not included with the other reserved SCORM variables in Lectora. There are a lot of optional variables in SCORM and it would be difficult to include all of them.

    Segey's suggestion above is the work-around. You can use JavaScript in an HTML Extension to access any of the optional variables and report them back to SCORM Cloud.

    Thanks Lea,

     

    I'll look into that. It sounds like an option that has a lot of potential. I'll report back here if I pull it off.
