    🙂 Where you found that truelancers link…

    In fact i just created a coooool multi-user approach… uses Javascript heavily offcourse. This specific one i made working in Articulate Storyline ( its more and more used overhere in Europe…so i have to shift attention 😉 but in fact the same JS code i used i can have working in Lectora… in fact even better in Lectora because its more open…

    login to:

    You can login simultenauously with 2 browser-instances… changing ( dragging/dropping ) tiles (octagons) in one instance…you will see direct update in the other.

    Got that working both in Storyline and Lectora on any LMS.

    So anything is possible with Javascript…

    Hi Math,

    Thanks for the response.

    I found it in an old post (2017). I was looking for ways to use js script in Lectora to access/retrieve info from MySQL. I am doing an offline title that does not use LMS and need to keep the title data for about 6 users (score, location in lesson, date, and maybe a few more) and came across that link in Lectora and I wanted to respond since “you’re The Man!”

    Thanks,

    Luis

    Math, If I am not mistaken, LBY is looking for an offline (no lms) approach. I would suggest a local install of Moodle as an easy approach. Either way something like Wamp Server or Xampp would be required, no? This can get quite complicated quickly for a non-programmer.

    Hi Darrel,

    Thanks for your input. I was under the impression that a js in Lectora could do queries to MySQL and read and write the data, is that possible?

    I dont do much offline work, in fact atm work only in the cloud with Lectora Online. Reading and writing to cloud databases is easy enough. I do think for offline use Darrel knows more. With Wamp or the alike you offcourse create something similar..

    Math is being very kind, he is way more experienced than I. That said, I would try Moodle first. Its free and you wont need to dive into scripting. With php or a combo of php and js you could communicate directly between a lectora lesson and a sql database as Mr. Blackmon (There’s your expert) mentioned in this thread.

    I’m pretty sure the actual MySQL (not the lite version or other versions) requires installation on a server. There may be work-arounds but that is not my area of expertise.

    There are other methods as well. You could even be able to write to and read from a simple text file using php and node.js. There are a ton of tutorials online for this.

    Unless you are comfortable with servers, js and php, I definitely would go the Moodle route. Perhaps if Tim or John are listening they will chime in.

    With everything going on now, elearning has exploded so time to create a tutorial like this is scarce (I’d have to go over a lot of this myself first as well.)

    Darrel, you and Math are the gurus of Lectora in the community of posting I see you guys all over and both of you are great providers of information and I thank you both.

    I am researching for more information about using the db offline. If not MySQL maybe Microsoft SQL could be an option, regardless, apparently the js can connect using a Node.js

    Thank you guys.
