Extract class / group of students in LMS
by Jason Chui - Thursday, 26 November 2020, 8:55 AM

May I know if there is any way to extract the class / group of a student in a LMS using adapt-contrib-spoor extension?

I am currently usingĀ Adapt.course.get('_globals')._learnerInfo.name; to extract the students' names from BlackBoard LMS to send to a cloud database. Is there a similar function to extract the learners' class?

Hi Jason,

I did a bit of a dive into the SCORM documentation, which can be found here.

Adapt officially supports SCORM 1.2 and there is no attribute for class or group. I noticed in the technical documentation, found in the SCORM_1.2_RunTimeEnv.pdf file on page 29, that in the example of the attribute student_id they had included information of the year group of a student, so perhaps it's possible to add information through there and parse the received string in Adapt in a presentable way that could be shown in a classroom. However, I would assume that your current LMS platform has this configured in a certain way already.

Matt Leathes is the SCORM expert in the Adapt core team so can probably provide a better answer.
