Tracking Slide Views Per User

Jul 10, 2019


I want to be able to track the slide views per user in my LMS (Moodle). Is there a way to do that? I'm trying a few things but wondered if there was a more simple option. I have SL360.

Hi there, Anji!

It sounds like you're looking for a way to track when your learners view a specific number of slides, is that right?

If so, you'll need to choose the Track using number of slides viewed choice found in your Reporting and Tracking Options. It's easy: check out this quick Peek 360!

Keep in mind that 'viewed' in this case means that the learner has visited or opened that particular slide. It won't take slide layers, timelines, and such into account.

We published an activity in HTML5/Flash and loaded into the Moodle LMS. We are trying to get the student ID, Student Name from LMS. Tried almost everything that is available online. Does HTML5/Flash option retrieve the student ID and Name from Moodle? If yes, please advise how. So far this is what I have –

function findLMSAPI(win) {
// look in this window
if (win.hasOwnProperty("GetStudentID")) return win;

// all done if no parent
else if (win.parent == win) return null;

// climb up to parent window & look there
else return findLMSAPI(win.parent);

var myName = lmsAPI.GetStudentName();
var array = myName.split(',');
var newName = array[1] + ' ' + array[0];
var studentID = lmsAPI.GetStudentID();

But this does not work. With SL 360

Hey Anji,

Thank you for letting us know and reaching back out! May I ask if you have been able to test your published output in the SCORM Cloud for LMS testing? You may find this article on How to Troubleshoot Your LMS with SCORM Cloud to be helpful!

I would also check out these troubleshooting steps to make sure your settings reflect the information you want to track.

I am more than happy to help with testing if you are comfortable with sharing your project to this discussion. If there is private material, feel free to use this link to upload the Storyline project for our Support engineers. Either way, we will remove the file after we are able to access it.
