I have a Captivate 2017 project that will be loaded into an LMS (Sum Total). Before starting the quiz, learners must indicate that they completed a prerequisite. If they indicate that they did not, they exit the course. If this occurs, I want bookmarking turned off so that the course starts at the beginning. I did this successfully in the Preferences. Is it possible to turn on bookmarking for the rest of the course? Thanks!
When you turn off bookmarking you do it for the entire CPTX project file. But this may not necessarily be the entire course if you have multiple modules in the course that are each generated from a different CPTX.
So the first question is: Does your course consist of multiple modules or is it all just one big CPTX.
The next question is: Are you talking about Resume Data Bookmarking (used for SCORM projects) or Self-paced Learning Bookmarking (not related to LMS content)?
Thanks for your comments, Ron. Yes, it is one Captivate project. I am using Resume Data Bookmarking.
OK. Well if it's one huge CPTX then your bookmarking will be either on or off for the entire project.
Actually, if the LMS pertains Captivate user variable values between sessions (apparently not all do), this could also be achieved with a tracking variable and Advanced Actions:
This will re-route the learner to Slide 1 on relaunch, if he indicated in the previous session not to have completed the prerequisite.
If backward navigation is allowed from the slide where the learner makes his declaration, you might want to reset the variable to 0 on slide enter of the previous slide.
I use a similar approach to have a course (appear to) restart from slide 1 if the learner reached the last slide on the previous launch.
I really don't know sum total, but in an LMS like Captivate Prime and even in Adobe Connect, I administer the prerequisite in the LMS not by having someone say they have done it in a Captivate file. Until the prerequisite course is completed, and tracked in the LMS, the Quiz would not be offered. You may want to rethink how you are using the prerequisites in your eLearning.
