How do I get LMS to pull first name of the user

I have contacted our LMS and they gave me the following instructions. But I don't know how to use these codes. 

The course gets the user's First name from the following value the LMS passes through: cmi.core.student_name in the following format: "lastname, firstname"

 Example: "cmi.core.student_name":"Smith, Jason","cmi.core.lesson_location":"0") - This will return "Jason".

Surya, it looks like the code at the beginning  this thread will get the name for you, split it to an array, then you can pick the array element you want to assign to your variable. Give it a try and let us know if you need more help:
