How to pull "Date" in LMS and apply in Storyline?

I know there is a system date that you can put into storyline but what if a learner change his/her System Date/Time on his/her PC, I'll assume that it will also change the output. But if I can get the "Date" in SCORM, even if the learner change the Date/Time of his/her PC it will not affect the output. Is there any possible way to do this?

Hello Cyrille and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

You're right, utilizing the system date is a feature that can be made available via JavaScript as you can see in this documentation.

I agree that it seems if the system date is changed, this would affect this feature. This is not a feature that I'm very savvy in though nor am I able to provide support.

Hopefully a fellow community member will be able to chime in and assist here.

I haven't seen any way to get the current date/time from the LMS yet, but if you have a server where you can place a php file, then I think you can do this pretty easily. A javascript trigger in your course would fetch the php file from the server, which would supply the server's date/time to the javascript code.
