Adobe is investigating the needs of Captivate users regarding how you would like to store your quiz interaction and score data. As you may know, Captivate already provides a mechanism for sending this data to an LMS via SCORM or AICC (and a couple of other options), but the Captivate team also knows that some of you are asking for more.
They want to hear from YOU about your situation and what you would like to be able to do with the Captivate score and interaction data. For example, would you store data directly to a database without using an LMS, or perhaps use web-based services to store the data?
This is your chance to tell them exactly what you’d like to see. Please write up a short summary of the functionality you’d like to see, and a clear example of how you would use it, if it were available. Be sure to use a valid email address when posting so Adobe can contact you for clarification if needed.
Please note that I don’t work for Adobe, I’m just helping them get some user feedback; this blog post is in response to a conversation I had with some members of the Captivate product team a couple of days ago.
Update 12/1/08: I realized I posted this at a pretty bad time, with the long Thanksgiving weekend and all that Black Friday/Cyber Monday stuff going on. If you’d like to send an email directly to a Captivate product manager, shoot it over to Shameer Ayyappan (shameer at adobe dot com).
I’d still like to know what you all think, though, so even if you email Shameer, I’d appreciate it if you left a comment on this post, too. Thanks.
