Getting and setting data from Captivate 6 for custom integrations
We use Captivate with our LMS both as standalone SCORM modules that communicate directly with the LMS, and as embedded quizzes inside custom learning modules. Communication of the Captivate score back to the learning module was done using a trick suggested by Adobe’s Andrew Chemey which involved redefining the built-in sendMail function Captivate used to send an email report of the quiz results.
Here’s how to get started:
1. Set up a quiz in Captivate. The quiz does not need to be set up to do any sort of reporting (SCORM, Adobe Connect, etc.).
Publish the Captivate file.
Add a link to jquery to the head of the document, so we can use a shortcut in writing our script.
