Innovative Learning Group (ILG) prides itself on keeping its clients in the know. On February 4, 2020, a new version of Google Chrome — Chrome 80 — will be released. This new version, if loaded on an individual’s or organization’s computer, may potentially impact e-learning tracking for courses and/or learning management systems (LMS).
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Impact on Courses: Depending on the authoring tool and version, when a learner closes a window or tab, progress since the last saved bookmark may be lost.
Impact on LMS: Depending on how an LMS implements tracking, it may not be able to properly track course progress. Additionally, when a learner closes a window or tab, an LMS content player may lose progress since the last saved bookmark. Check with your LMS provider for additional details.
