Use javascript to create a list item in SharePoint from Storyline?

Hi all - I have no LMS. I have Storyline and SharePoint. I need to track Storyline quiz results. I've perused the forums and have found posts where folks are using javascript to output variables to notepad and excel.

It appears that it's possible to use javascript to create/update/delete items in SharePoint lists. I would like to use this method to capture the name and quiz score of a user and then post it to a SharePoint list.

Unfortunately, my limited understanding of javascript and something called the SharePoint Client Object Model is not enough to accomplish the task.

Has anyone out there tried something like this? Is it feasible?

Thanks in advance!

I too am interested in this topic and in the same situation in terms of working knowledge of JS and Sharepoint.. It would be really nice to know how to do this. Anyone have any insight on this?

Otherwise, I just thought I should stop in to note for anyone who is considering using JS as an option, unfortunately, we are not able to provide support for JavaScript coding. Luckily, we have lots of community members who are more than willing to share their expertise to assist!

And for those who'd like to review it, here is a sheet on JavaScript Best Practices you may want to keep handy. :)
