Lectora: Prevent same lesson being opened twice.

Is there any good method for preventing someone from opening up the same lesson twice? Either in two seperate tabs / browsers or two separate devices and running the lesson at the same time.

Obviously, you could go the route of putting a variable into the database (1 or a 0) and when they're actively taking the lesson the zero turns to a one, and the lesson cannot be reopened while this variable is a one.

But this is strife with potential errors and loopholes to get around it.

 

Is there any other good way developers have come up with?

    That strikes me as something to be done at the LMS level, not the AU level.

    I would agree.  It seems unusual that your LMS would allow this.
