Any content can be a lesson with Shika LMS for Joomla!

Any-content-can-be-a-lesson-with-Shika-LMS-for-Joomla

Delivering and tracking learning programs is one of the fundamental features of an LMS. While most LMS will support online delivery and tracking of some standard learning formats like SCORM, not a lot of other content can be used for online viewing with the ability to track. Tracking can mean a lot of things - tracking time, Progress, Scores, etc. Depending on the lesson type Shika supports some or all of these tracking parameters.

TJ Queue - A message queue for Joomla

TJ-Queue-is-here

As we go on in our pursuit to use Joomla in never-seen-before use cases a few interesting problems came forth.

  • A web-hooks implementation: Similar to how plugins can declare triggers they want to listen to, webhooks allow external applications to register URLs that can receive a JSON payload when an action happens in an application. Since there could be multiple webhooks, each webhook call is queued as a message and happens asynchronously.
  • In Shika: Recalculating user progress in the background. When a new lesson is added to a course, Shika recalculates each enrolled user’s progress to take into account the newly added lesson. When there are a lot of lessons and a large number of users enrolled in the course, this recalculation cannot happen in real time. In this case, a recalculation job does this in the background once the lesson is saved.
