Question on Publish Settings - Storyline 2

We have been using Storyline for quite a few years and really like the product.  Recently, we had someone create a course and then reuse it for another course.  We usually change the LMS Lesson SCORM Information Identifier to match the LMS Lesson SCORM Information Title.  In this case, they forgot to change  it.  We didn't notice any issues with the course, but are curious as to what that field is actually supposed to do and does it matter if it is from a previous course.

I included an attachment of a demo course.

Thanks, Alyssa.  I did read that section prior to asking the question.   I just want to confirm that if we are reusing a course for a new course, when we publish, the LMS Course Information Identifier does update with a new code.  However, the LMS Lesson SCORM Information does not update, it keeps the previous course information.  Will that cause any issues with the new course?

Hi Michele,

No apologies necessary - we're still here. 🙂 

The following information is sent to a learning management systems (LMSs) by Articulate Storyline SCORM and AICC content:

  • id: Storyline sends a series of data for this string to identify the Scene#, the QuestionDraw# (if applicable), and the Slide# in that particular scene or question draw.
  • type: This is the type of question (True/False, Multiple Choice, Multiple Response, etc).
  • student_response: This is how the learner answered the question.
  • correct_response: This is the correct answer for the question.
  • result: This designates whether the learner answered the question correctly or not.
  • weighting: Articulate content doesn't currently utilize this item. It'll always be set to 1.
  • latency: This is how long it took the learner to answer the question.
  • objective: Articulate content doesn't currently utilize this item. It'll always be set to 0.

To send question text to your LMS, you'd want to publish for SCORM 2004 or Tin Can API (also called Experience API or xAPI).
