Pass Storyline Variable from SCO to SCO via LMS
Aug 30, 2012
Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere, but I've done some searching and can't find it. I'm also stumbling my way through SCORM, so I realize I may be holding some misconceptions about how everything works together.
I am looking to pass a Storyline variable from SCO to SCO using SCORM 1.2 in Moodle. Specifically, we are building a course that teaches users about a topic, and they can learn this material as it is applied to 5 different situations. Once they choose the situation they would like to learn about, we would like to hold that variable from SCO to SCO so they don't have to choose anew each time.
I have read the technique for passing custom variables in Storyline via a results page. Looks like this is using an automated setValue command, and I have successfully tested this technique for passing a custom variable into Moodle. It seems to me, however, that we need to use a GetValue command of some sort to retrieve that variable from the LMS when a SCO starts.
