our company currently has LearningSpace configured so that the sessionId that is generated when a user logs in times out after about an hour. This has been fine for all of our courses in the past. However, we recently purchased a course that can take a *long* time to complete - up to a couple of days. How do we prevent the sessionId from timing out?
1. changing the session timeout value - unfortunately, this changes the timeout values for ALL of our courses - something we don't want to do.
2. having the course call GetParam every 10 minutes in (like a heartbeat) to let LearningSpace "know" that it is still alive and should not be timed out. Unfortunately, even though LearningSpace is receiving the call to GetParam, it still times the sessionId out after the specified timeout period.
Finally, we *have* specified in the *.AU file that the maximum time allowed is "" - which we *assume* meant that there was NO maximum time allowed and that, therefore, the sessionId would not time out.
Anyone know what we are supposed to do to make this work right?
