Overview: An app for iPhone or iPad which let's learners know about new course offerings, download items of interest, and view/listen to content.
MLI is implementing oAuth so that the app can work using tokens versus signup requiring sending of user information.
1)Learner registers/subscribes to free app which lists newly released and currently available courses to which they can listen and/or view.
Learner is sent an email which they click on their blackberry which autoinstalls on their blackberry.
2) The App automatically updates the list of currently available courses. Preference: update automatically once a week or prompt learner that they can update immediately (we can discuss this) when accessing the app.
3) The App allows learners to download content (audio and/or video files) to review at their convenience. A queue or curriculum folder is where the learner can select the courses at there convenience.
4) When the learner views/listens to the course, the app sends to our corporate database that the learner has viewed/listened to the file. It is preferable that both the start and completion date and time is recorded. If not possible, then notification that the learner has clicked on the link to begin the course could be the trigger.
5) Corporate database records the learner has completed the course (learner id token or registration data, course id, start and completion date/time)
The database I am referring to is the corporate learning management system. Upon recording of completed course, the process integrates into the online course progression (posttest and application for credit, certificate generation, completion of course) which is already built and working.
Bid should include email contact for references specifically related to iPhone/iPad apps.
Please specifically outline what event could trigger the completion event (i.e. clicking on the link to begin listening to the file or embedding triggering code within the file which would trigger upon the learner finishing listening to the file).
