which is used by the MedBiquitous Virtual Patient (VP) specification,
offers very rudimentary possibilities to give feedback about working
process with a VP. There are possibilities to give overall feedback of
the overall process but there may be interesting informations which
can't be used e.g. for formative assessment judgement for example which
path the student took.
Secondly, regarding extensions like the QTI extension, there has to be a
possibility to log additional data outside SCORM or better the LMS (for
instance which answer was took).
which MVP compatible player can implement. Dependent on the player the
events can be just send to the SCORM API or to another server
(Cross-Domain-Request) which can for example be used for formative
assessment or just better log functionality.
Having a stable spec even learn management system extension can be build
for displaying better information about the student's path through a VP
implementation for a specific player. The API just uses the SCORM-API,
so that the additional player specific implementation is optional.
The following API calls will be possible [TODO]
mvp.extensionEvent (String namespace, String... arguments)
Here's the API implementation [not working]:
With a standardized API for MVP players, additional functionality for
logging or formative assessment is possible. Extensions for learn
management systems are possible which can rely on a solid interface.
