LMS Status Reporting
Apr 26, 2013
I need urgent advice regarding my Storyline courses. I'll try and explain the situation as simply as possible.
When uploading courses to our LMS (Oracle PeopleSoft), the zipped course is uploaded to their server, then the imsmanifest.xml file is uploaded to the Course code activity. My problems are as follows:
1. If the course is amended it gets republished and reuploaded to the server, however, our LMS developers advise that the imsmanifest.xml file should NOT be reuploaded. The reason being that any learner history gets deleted for that particular course.
2. They asked me to publish using the status "Passed/Incomplete". If the learner does not pass the minimum pass rate (80%), their status will show as "In Progress". If the learner passes, their status will show as "Completed". This did not work since the status showed as Completed even though they failed.
3. They then asked me to republish using "Passed/Failed". Obviously, I had to also reupload the new imsmanifest.xml file, otherwise the LMS would take the information from the original Passed/Incomplete status. This also does not work, since the status shows as Completed when the learner fails.
Attached is an image showing both scenarios. They are adamant that the course is constructed incorrectly and I disagree. Has anyone had any similar experiences with this LMS? I really need some guidance and be sure of my facts before contacting them.
