LMS Tasks - Course Rollover Issues
When a unit or course is 'Rolled Over' in your LMS, commonly between semesters, links to Auralia and Musition tasks are often removed from the LMS. If this happens, all the tasks will have to be relinked.
Some LMS support 'task history'; although new tasks are created in the LMS upon rollover, the 'prior ID' of the task is still passed through to Auralia and Musiton. This is used to map the new LMS task to the prior Auralia /Musition Test or Course, ensuring that things continue to work correctly.
We support this with custom parameters from these LMS;
Task Linking - 'External ID'
If your LMS does not support 'Task History', you can link your tasks manually using 'Custom Parameters' on each task in your LMS. This will ensure that copies or 'rollovers' of your courses will continue to have tasks linked correctly.
Step 1 - Auralia & Musition
For each of your Auralia and Musition Tests or Courses, you need to set an 'External ID'. These must be unique and are case sensitive. We don't recommend including spaces.
Step 2 - LMS
On each of your LMS tasks, you need to add the following 'Custom Parameters'. They will be passed through to Auralia / Musition when the task is first launched, creating the link and ensuring things open correctly.
If you update the 'external_id' or 'result_mode' custom parameter in your LMS, it will not be updated in Auralia and Musition - instead simply create a new 'task' in your LMS and use the new external_id there.
We currently support LTI 1.3, including 'deep linking'. At this stage our deep linking implementation does not support 'Task Selection'.
