This is a tickbox that is located within the project settings in your project file, and one which I am sure that many people have seen.
Most discussion around it seems to refer to it as a way to prevent bookmarking. However, nowhere have I have been able to find a concise and clear list of what actually sits in resume data and as such the impact is has on multi-path (menu driven) navigation.
For both the sake of a future reference and present needs I would like to define each of the elements that is included within the resume data, and as such what is then disabled when this tick box is used.
The resume data:
Blue - I am confident it is resume data
Red - I think it is resume data
Sorry but this is a user forum, not populated by stuff.
AFAIK Never send Resume data means no bookmarking. Other data are transferred to the LMS anyway like score, percentage. As for variables, it depends as much on the SCORM type as on the LMS.
For those looking at this in the future, I was able to confirm that all the elements (both blue and red) in the original post are included in resume data.
It is not just bookmarking but anything which could be used to record progress.
In addition to the items mentioned above, we store the following details also as part of the resume data.
1) Visited state of all slides
2) Selected Pool Name and Selected Question slide index
3) Quiz state( isInReviewMode, submittedAllQuestions, pretestQuestionsDisabled, inQuizScope, QuizScopeEndSlide)
4) Branch Info(Completion branch, Current Branch)
I have encountered a challenge when working with random picking of tasks from question pools. When the course is closed and then reopened, it seems to struggle with the fact that random taks are not static. So, instead of getting back to the last task I was working with, the resume process hangs and the course is useless. Any way to avoid that?
