cmi.suspend_data length getting a bit out of hand
May 24, 2012
Quick question for anyone who may be "in the know." We've built a fairly large course with lots of layers and variables and are hitting the SCORM 1.2 limit for suspend data length. About 2/3 through the course we hit over 4096 characters in the suspend data.
I've read http://www.articulate.com/support/kb_article.php?product=st1&id=jrrv9j8vulu0, but none of the solutions are really viable since we want tracking, this certification course is about as lean as we can get it and publishing to 2004 doesn't really work if you have a 1.2 LMS. What I'm wondering is if I set slides to "Reset to initial state" does it still track what you've done in them in the suspend data?
We're working with our developers to see if we can change the limit, but there seem to be a bunch of different layers in our application that want to limit data to the magical 4000 character limit which used to be max for SQL databases.
