I don’t expect that anyone on the Dope would be able to help with this directly, but my Google-fu has turned up nothing but two SharePoint boards with post rates of <1 per day, the majority of which are new questions. My hope is that someone here can at least point me in the direction of some folks who’d know the answer to this.
I’m currently developing some learning content using an LMS compatible with SCORM 1.2, which I understand SharePoint supports. Right now, I’m in the process of preparing some of this content to be searchable through a SharePoint interface.
Having never used SharePoint and lacking a way to test it for at least a month or so, what I need is a general rundown of SharePoint’s search capabilities with regard to SCORM metadata tags. The LMS we are using allows one to get very specific with metadata for each object; I can have any number of metadata groups with any number of self-defined freeform text fields, dropdown boxes, etc. What I want to ensure is that I don’t assign important search criteria to areas SharePoint will not be able to distinguish between.
As an example, let’s say I create two metadata groups for each object. The first group has a dropdown box allowing me to select “A”, “B” or “C”, and two freeform text fields labeled “Foo” and “Bar”. The second group has radio buttons labeled “One” and “Two”. When I export these learning objects and run a SharePoint query, I want to know if I’ll be able to construct a search such that I only get objects with “One” and “B” selected, and specific values entered into “Foo” and “Bar”. If not, I also need to know what sorts of groups/fields I would be advised to use.
On the offchance there are any fellow SCORM devs in here, feel free to chime in; otherwise, I’d be very appreciative if someone could at least recommend a source. Any advice is very much appreciated.
ETA: This was supposed to have gone in GQ, but I suppose it works just as well here. Mods, please feel free to move it as suits your fancy.
