Hello, I am uploading content created in Adobe Captivate as SCORM courses and need to create curriculums consisting of multiple courses. Is it possible to group SCORM courses in this way and to run a report on the whole curriculum (not on a course by course basis)? If so what is the best way to do this? I am using Moodle 2.4.
Running Reports on Multiple SCORM courses
Unless there have been developments I don't know about you have two problems here..
- SCORM really only exposes a final score to the Gradebook although all the other info the API allows is actually stored internally
- There isn't any across the site Gradebook reporting (it's all course based) and there certainly isn't any detailed SCORM reporting.
I have actually been involved in developing the sort of reporting you talk about for clients but this has all been very specific. Really we need someone to come along and fund this kind of reporting.
Thank you for the reply. Currently we are using a commercial LMS and were hoping to switch to Moodle but this will definitely be a problem as our customers will be expecting such functionality. We will probably have to stick with what we have in this case. If anyone else comes across this and might have an idea or some custom code/plugin they could share to accomplish this it would be welcome. Thanks again.
Thanks, I'll take a look at this. Unfortunately when management hears the word "free" they tend to balk at paying for support, a situation I'm sure plenty of people have been in. It is curious though that this feature is missing in something that bills itself as a CMS; just my opinion but I don't really see this as "businessy" but rather something that should be a basic feature.
It depends on who you are. The usual use case is discrete courses and the reporting within the course suffices. The across the board reporting per user is done somewhere else.
My experience is that using Moodle as a SCORM player, essentially, is a very specific use. Almost always training of some sort and brings with it a whole different bunch of reporting requirements.
But, yes, it's a big percentage of Moodle users and should probably be better supported.
