Hello again

We're stumped by this issue. SCORM objects from Xerte added to Moodle are recording events an hour ahead (so when a page has been viewed at 14:15 the tracking is recording it at 15:15). Both Moodle and Xerte servers are on the correct timezone. We can't see any other references/settings related to times so wonder if there's something in the SCORM settings when the packages are generated in Xerte. Could this be possible? Or is this a known issue already?

Thanks again for any advice.

Yvonne

Xerte sends timestamp without a timezone to the LMS. I assume (because of previous messages) that you are using SCORM 2004. According to the documentation, timestamps without timezne should be interpreted as being localtime. Could it be that the LMS you are using interprets the timestamp as being UTC? I think it could account for the hour difference because of DST? So in the winter it would be correct.

Could you ask the LMS support if they know how timestamps are interpreted if no timezone is set?

The only way to really test this is to for example temporarily change the timezone of a PC (client) to for example CET or Amrican time, and see what happens then.
