Hi Todd

I would test your course on Scormcloud first, if it works there it is an issue with the LMS and not articulate

That's not necessarily accurate.  There are hundreds of LMS's and not all LMS's are created equal, and Articulate can't test its product on every LMS.

What Articulate sends to the LMS via scorm is not always what the LMS want to hear and then you run into a "he said, she said" battle between vendors. I've experienced various completion bugs with an Articulate published course, yet those same bugs don't occur with a Captivate course - same LMS.  Articulate has released fixes for specific LMS's.

Todd, there are some known "bugs" between scorm code Articulate sends and LMS's.  The info is kind of scattered around the Articulates site, but with some digging you should find some helpful info.

HTH,

Hi Bill

A lot of the LMS fixes though are because the lms's implementation of scorm is wrong, a case in point is moodle complete/incomplete implementation the articulate fix is to work around this

I understand what you say, but using test track will at least ensure the course is reporting to scorm correctly, you then as you say need to trawl for a fix for your lms

We are able to get Articulate modules published as SCORM 1.2 to work with the Absorb LMS Suite; however, when changing the publishing setting to SCORM 2004, they generate an error message when a learner clicks on a module.  (In DisplayError, strMessage=An Error Has Occurred).  Technically, it fails to initialize [Detected failed called to GetValue ...   ERROR - invalid lesson mode]. 

So, we're still wrestling with SCORM 2004 compliance.

I just confirmed through an Absorb LMS rep that they do not currently support SCORM 2004; only SCORM 1.2 and AICC (Beta).
