Why is course progress lost on mobile devices?
When progressing through a course on an iPad, I will often complete a section and return to the LMS but not receive a completion status (based on # of slides viewed). It is erratic (if I complete the section again, it might update).
I understand that losing the Internet connection would prevent the device from sending the results to the LMS. My question is, how often is this information transferred? Every slide? When the user exits the course? If I re-start the section, it often requires me to start from the beginning rather than prompting me to pick up where I left off (near or at the end).
Do different LMSs handle the communication of this data differently? Is there a way to make sure the course passes tracking of what slide the user is on regularly so they don't need to start over from the beginning if they get disconnected?
