SCORM tracking

Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a collection of industry standards and specifications for e-learning which define communications between your content and your learning management system (LMS). All gomo-authored content is SCORM 1.2 compliant.

This means that your content is able to store user data, helping you to track:

  • successful launch of the gomo course 
  • progress and completion of the gomo course 
  • data to be written to the LMS
  • last session time
  • last page accessed (bookmarking)
  • user’s final assessment score in the course
  • learner name and unique ID of learner
  • progress through individual sections/ topics (not attempted, incomplete, completed) will be displayed to the user via progress indicators and stored in suspend data field
  • interoperability checks will occur each time a user logs in to ensure tracking data is collected on progress, assessments etc.  


xAPI tracking

Content authored in gomo supports the xAPI (The Experience API or TinCan) tracking method.  When content is published to the gomo hosting platform, xAPI is enabled by default.  You can also manually enable xAPI for externally distributed content.  Further information relating to enabling xAPI tracking in your course can be found on our support site.


Video, audio and image formats

The following formats should be used in your gomo projects:

Video


  • Video and animations must be mp4 files encoded using an H.264 codec for widest device support.
  • Files should be kept as small as possible as they can make your apps very large if not compressed correctly and generally we'd suggest the video being 480x320px as it still looks good when scaled up but keeps the file size down. However you can use whatever video size and aspect ratio you need e.g. 16:9. If you're using a video production company to create your videos then let them know that it's going to be streamed to a browser on a computer/tablet or smartphone screen and not on large high definition televisions, so they should optimise quality/bandwidth/filesize for that.
  • When uploading a video an image thumbnail should be uploaded to go with it. 

Audio

  • Audio should be in MP3 format.

Images

  • Images should be in either PNG or JPEG format. PNG is best for diagrams with lines and text since it doesn't lose any quality, whereas JPG is best for photos since they can be compressed without much noticeable loss of quality.
