AMP publish settings question

Hi,

I am trying to understand the behavior of the AMP available offline option. When we published the course and we did not select the available offline option, what is that exactly mean? For example, let's say the interaction was launched from the LMS. It loaded to the AMP. (Again, this is with the Available offline option was not selected). We signed off from the LMS, but we still can play the interaction in the AMP. Where is this interaction actually live? Why we can still play the interaction in the AMP even we signed out from the LMS? I really appreciate if someone can shed some lights. Thank you.

Hi Benny,

If you're accessing the course from the AMP, and you don't need to have the Tin Can API for your LMS, you'll still be able to view the content within the mobile player. The offline option is associated more with having no internet connection, so that the course is downloaded entirely to your iPad mobile player library so that it can be viewed later without wireless access.

Hi Benny,

If you LMS supports the Tin Can API, you can use the mobile player and still have all the tracking information. Since the Tin Can API doesn't support offline viewing, you wouldn't be able to use your content offline (without internet) although once you've logged in and loaded the course to your mobile player library you may not need to log in again.

Hi Benny, 

Sorry if I was confusing with my last statement - When you publish your course to be able to access through the mobile player, you will need to first access it through your LMS (that supports Tin Can API) and it will appear as a part of your mobile player library.

From there, you should be able to visit the mobile player again to access the course, and as long as you're connected to the internet and have published for the Tin Can API the information will be tracked and returned to your LMS. If you are not connected to the internet, no tracking information will be sent to your LMS and the course may not load in the mobile player. You'd receive an error message such as described here.
