[LON-CAPA-users] Checking video views

I am interested in checking the viewing of videos that I post. These are developed using Camtasia and can have a quiz built in that reports its results via SCORM. I found the excerpt below regarding SCROM and I understand Gerd's objections to using it.

What other methods do people use to check that students have at least watched or accessed content in LON-CAPA?

We do not support the SCORM Runtime Environment, since it sends the
correct solutions to the browser and leaves the evaluation of
correctness to the browser. I could easily write a script that would
send back "correct" to the server for all questions.

Depending of what kind of problems these are (are they just multiple
choice/numerical?), one could write a script that translates these
into LON-CAPA XML. Also, if that module is available in IMS format, or
if it can be loaded into some other system and then be exported as
IMS, it might work.
