I used the Articulate Storyline 360 to create courses (TinCan xAPI). When I make a change to a course, republish, zip, and import the file that I made the change in, I am unable to see the changes to my course. Can you help understand why and what is the best resolution for this?
This should not be happening. Probably try to re-login. Or, if there is a caching plugin. You might need to try deleting cache, or disable the plugin. If the issue is still not resolved please create a support ticket.
