With the way my organization's LMS is setup inside a single sign on portal, the web based training will continue even after the LMS and portal system has timed out. The learner will never know until they try to exit an assignable unit and the SCORM-based WBT tries to send the results to the LMS. NOT SAVED! This is particularly a problem if the assignable unit was complex and the learner spent a considerable amount of time on it.
I'm taking a two prong approach to this problem:
- Setting a pop-up message that will first do an LMSCommit and/or LMSFinish and alert the learner that they are timed out.
