Resume sate not saved properly- to use SCORM 2004 or SCORM 1.2

We had published a course in SCORM 1.2 for our client, who are using Totara as their LMS. But there were issues with the SCORM package that the resume state was not saved properly. I could regenerate the issue in SCORM cloud. 

So I published the course with SCORM 2004 (3rd edition) with greater suspend data limit and then it worked fine in SCORM cloud. 

Before updating the version of SCORM in Totara, I checked if LMS supports SCORM 2004. 

I got the following reply:

Totara fully supports the AICC and SCORM 1.2 specification. It also
supports the SCORM 2004 specification, with the exception of these
 - Content Aggregation Model
- The Run-Time Environment

- Sequencing and Navigation

How can I check if the SCORM 2004 package  from SL will be supported by Totara or not? Are these extensions part of SCORM 2004 from SL?

Totara's SCORM player is pretty much exactly the same as the one in Moodle - sounds like you're running into the suspend data limits imposed by the SCORM spec - you can turn this off in Moodle/Totara for SCORM 1.2 packages by going to admin > plugins > SCORM

Hello Dan, 

I checked from LMS and the setting was already disabled for Suspend data limits. Still the error persists. But when I published the course with SCORM 2004(3rd ed), it works perfectly in scorm cloud. The only thing is that I don't know if I should publish it in Totara or not.

How do we know if we are implementing the advanced areas like sequencing and navigation from SCORM 2004?
