Biggest Problem – IVLE APIs• Problem: IVLE APIs do not return successful  responses to Jetpack’s requests• Failed: – Using other methods: • XMLHttpRequest() • jQuery.getJSON() – IVLE APIs’ problem. Emailed them.• Solution: – Using page‐worker to get responses manually at  background – How to get the responses out?
