LMS Lesson SCORM Information option

HI. In the Articulate 360 LMS publishing options, under the Reporting tab, there is a box called LMS Course information and lower down a box called LMS Lesson SCORM Information. Both boxes contain a field called Identifier.  In the notes for this, it says: "The Identifier field is a unique string of characters assigned by Storyline. Your LMS uses it to identify your content. If you are republishing a course that is already in your LMS, do not change the value in this field."

So my questions are:

1) Which Identifier field are the notes referring to? I assume only the one in the LMS Course information box?

2) In the LMS Lesson SCORM Information box, there is a title field and an identifier field. The title field is automatically populated from the Title I entered for the new file. However the identifier field is still showing as the title from the original file. So, should I make the title and Identifier in the this LMS Lesson SCORM Information box the same?

Hello Tanudja and welcome to E-Learning Heroes :)

Thanks for reaching out and sharing your questions.

You are correct, the Identifier that is assigned by Storyline is the first one under LMS Course Information.

The second Identifier defaults to the Title of the project in a new file.

  • Are you doing a Save As and re-naming a project?
  • Are you running into an issue with your identifier in your LMS? 

Here's a visual of what happens by default:

Thanks so much Leslie. Looks like I'm doing this bit correctly. My issue is problems with text box appearance  in Chrome that are not appearing in Mozilla (I thought this identifier thing might be it but no. I'm a complete novice so just learning the ropes on a very tight deadline - and original developer not available so here I am! I have opened another discussion about the Chrome issue.

Hi Christine!

The second identifier appears in the imsmanifest.xml file, and it appears to be a friendly name for the first auto-generated LMS identifier higher up on that same screen.

While you can change the second identifier, I'd tread with caution. Just be sure the identifier is the same each time you publish the same course. 

Let me know if that answers your question!
