Can you send specific text to the LMS?

Jun 23, 2020

Hello Articulate community, I'd be extremely grateful for any advice you may be able to offer on a little challenge we've been set.

We have a Storyline 3 course (Scorm 1.2) published on a Saba LMS.

Is there a way to send a specific piece of text ("PT=BT-CM") from the course to the LMS, so it can be extracted/picked up by a back-end reporting system?

Our reporting team has requested the text be sent to the suspend data field of the LMS, but I was under the impression that suspend data is not human-readable.

All ideas and suggestions gratefully received. If possible, what would be the best way to do it? A dummy quiz question? Variables? JavaScript?

Many thanks.

Hi Sam,

Thanks for helping me with this. Would you know if the following Javascript code will work for me? (I need to capture ‘PT=BT-CM’ in the SCORM data for every learner completing the course.)


For SCORM 1.2 content

SCORM_CallLMSSetValue('cmi.comments', PT=BT-CM);

 For SCORM 2004

SCORM2004_CallSetValue('cmi.comments_from_learner.0.comment', PT=BT-CM);


Thanks again, Brian
