Question about bookmarking


I'm currently using SCORM 1.2 and one of the features my employer wants to have is bookmarking. I've searched that the command is cmi.core.lesson_location, but what I need to know how will command like LMSSetValue("cmi.core.lesson_location", yourpage.html); save so that it when it's been called upon in LMSGetValue, you would have the right value?

Do I have to save it into our database using maybe ASP or PHP, or does the LMSSetValue() command takes care of that for me?

Thanks in advance.

    I'll continue with you via email, but the answer for the world is:

    Thanks for asking.  When you're running a piece of content in an LMS, it's the _LMS's _job to persist that data however it sees fit.  So you, as the piece of content, call SetValue() and then trust that the LMS will keep that across sessions.

    If you need an environment in which to experiment, you can do that at, and it costs nothing for a trial account that never expires.  

    Another piece of info... it's important to avoid scripted languages like ASP/PHP because those languages will rarely be supported on the LMS to which you deliver the piece of content.
