Setting Activity Ids in Tin Can
I recently implemented Articulate Storyline, Wordpress, LearnDash, and Grassblade.
The open source adl lrs was not out of beta yet and only available for Ubuntu. Which I am on RHEL. So, I ended up writing my own tincan LRS endpoint. I could not find any other open source LRS systems to implement in a private environment.
I love it all, works great, have about 10,000 active users pounding it daily with well over 100 modules in to different brands.
The one thing I am sticking on now is the auto generated mangled Activity Ids that storyline creates for you. For the most part I can get by using grouping ids and types = course to get some meaningful reporting for the end users.
But, what I have not seen is a way to set the activity ids in storyline, and from what I have read on here you cannot effectively change the activity ids in the tincan.xml and have the published content pick them up. Haven't tested that myself yet.
So, my question is, is there a way to set these activity ids to something other than mangled descriptors? And if you can't it would sure be a really nice feature of the articulate guys! Hint.. Hint...
Also, props to Pankaj Agrawal who you will see on this forum and his product GrassBlade. Very nice product and great support!
