Setting, and getting, multiple variables to/from an LMS using Articulate Storyline
Mar 03, 2015
I have seen various methods of using java script to get things like, the learners name from the LMS into Storyline, and I have also seen this
Which shows how to send a variable into the LMS.
However, after much searching, I am unable to find a proper input/output system for multiple custom variables. I am expecting this is possibly a limitation of LMS/storyline/scorm systems.
What I would like to do, is be able to send a bunch of variables, such as say, a characters statistics, into the LMS, and then retrieve them, possibly in an entirely different SCORM package to the one that put them into the LMS in the first place. So you could create a character, define things about him throughout the first SCORM package you run through, and then later on, open another SCORM package, and the same character, complete with everything that happened during the last package, would be 'loaded up'
Essentially a persistent set of variables per learner
Anyone think this is do-able, or am I simply dreaming?
Or, am I really silly, and there is a way to keep such data in a pre defined way I am not aware of.
Thanks in advance.
