Deep Dive: The State and Activity Profile APIs

For storing (and sharing) state!

Last time we dived into the Document APIs as a whole. This time we dive deeper into the most well known and commonly used of the Document APIs, the State API. As there’s a lot of similarity between the State API and Activity Profile API (and I don’t have a whole blog worth of content on the State API alone) we’ll cover the Activity Profile API too.

The State and Activity Profile APIs provide a place for Activity Providers that have no storage of their own to store Documents. These APIs are no substitute for an Activity Provider’s own storage, and if you can use your own data store instead, you should. They are useful for small tools for which their own database would be overkill, for converted legacy SCORM content (which would previously have stored data with the LMS), and for new SCORM style content. They can also be useful for communication between a Training Delivery System such as an LMS and the Activity Provider.
