Report time spent watching video

Hi all.. situation.

My marketing team has a 1 hour video that new business partners need to view to be eligible for a certain incentive program. I can embed the video easily enough into Storyline. My issue is, is there a way to report from storyline into our LMS (absorb), how much time a person spent watching the video? Could I put some sort of variable on the timeline in certain spots that would increase some sort of counter for every 5 minutes or something, and somehow pass that variable to a "score" in the LMS?

Any insights would be helpful.

Hi Jim,

What about requiring them to view it in it's entirety? You could set it up so that the slide won't advance until the user has met a particular condition such as "media completes" or adjust a variable at the end of the timeline?  

You also mentioned tracking variables, and although they're not reported to an LMS, there is a method here to do so - although it's more for text variables or T/F. 

Hope that helps - and other community members may have additional suggestions!
