Storing/restoring sessions

Hello,

Currently it doesn't seem to be a way of restoring a user session for a H5P presentation.

If for example I open a H5P presentation from a web browser, I complete a few slides and I answer correctly a few activities/games, and then I close the presentation without completing all the slides and activities/games; then that information can be stored on the server database but never restored: the next time I open the presentation form the same URL I will have to start from the beginning. On our company we would find very useful to be able to "restore the session" the next time the user opens the same presentation (restore information about what activities/games were completed and what was the score on them).

Is this something that can be implemented currently? do you have plans to implement this in the future?

Thank you in advance,

Diego.

Hi Diego,

If you are creating the content in one of the supported frameworks (Drupal, Moodle or Wordpress), you can enable the "Save Content State" feature. This saves the session for the user but take take note that this is not universally available for all content types. Course Presentation is one of those contents that supports save content state.

Thank you for your answer.

One more question about this. We are using Wordpress. If we have for example 100 users accessing a single H5P application on our Wordpress site, does the "Save Content Sate" feature save the state for each of those 100 users? how does it identify the users, do the users need to be logged in on Wordpress so the H5P contents can identify them and remember their state?

Thank you for your answer, this is great!

Just one more question about this. We use Wordpress. Let's say that we have 100 different users accessing the H5P application, will the "Save Content Sate" feature allow to save state independently for each of the 100 different users? how does it identify them, or do they have to be logged in on WordPress?

Hi Diego,

The users needs to be logged in to WP for this feature to work.

Hi BV52,

Will the Save Content State feature be available to Canvas? Cheers!

Hi Mark,

I would assume that you are using H5P.com to host your contents for Canvas. Save content state is on the roadmap for H5P.com but there is no ETA yet.
