I have a quiz built in captivate and is published as a .swf file. The quiz is then run through a browser(Firefox). It is a long difficult quiz and occasionally the user will end up not being able to finish the quiz in one session, the browser will freeze, or some other technical difficulty. As of right now if you even refresh the page it starts the quiz completely over. Is it possible to save the users progress so that they can resume the quiz from where they left off? For example after each time they answer a question it saves there current progress or something?
I've done a bit of research and haven't found much, not sure if it just doesn't exist or if I'm asking the wrong questions.
You need to turn on Bookmarking so that the module stores data about the learner's progress somewhere. You do not mention using an LMS to deliver this content, so I am assuming you are just delivering the files from a LAN server. Is that correct? If so, then you can turn on Self-Paced Learning in the Skin Editor settings. It's one form of bookmarking.
