I need to be able to tell whether a course created using the Authoring Tool is served from an actual LMS or simply hosted on a server.
Reason is when the course is in an LMS, I will retrieve the user name from the LMS as suggested in this post. If, however, the course is hosted on a server, then there is no user name to retrieve and I want to use an alert box to get users to enter their names instead.
I'm using the SPOOR extension and even if the course is in a non-LMS server, the extension gives a fake name, "Sam", as the user.
Any suggestions as to how to detect whether the course is in an LMS or not?
Thanks in advance.
