LMS Course Identifier Field: How to edit?

Aug 08, 2012

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to help out my LMS Administrator by populating information before I publish courses to the LMS. I have a program consisting of 25 separate courses.

I select to publish to LMS and fill in the appropriate information (Publish location, Published Title, Player Template, and SCORM1.2).

Then I click the Reporting and Tracking... button. In some of the 25 courses, the Identifier field under LMS Course Information saves any edits I make to that field.

However, in other courses, while I am able to edit the field, my edits are NOT saved! When I click OK, publish the course, and then re-open the Reporting and Tracking Options pop-up, the information in the Identifier field under LMS Course Information has reverted back.  All the other fields keep their edits. 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Here is the field:

Hi Tricia! I think the behavior you're seeing is a known issue with SCORM content... the Course Identifier always matches the LMS Course Title if you've included one more more quizzes in your course. As you've seen, you can change the identifier on the Reporting window, but if you close the window and then reopen it, the field will revert back to the text displayed in the Title field. Unfortunately there's not a workaround for the issue at this time.
