Using Captivate 9 on Windows 7 64-bit
I am working on a training video. I do not want the learner to be able to advance to the next slide by clicking NEXT until the video is done playing, which I have successfully succeeded doing by going to the skin editor and taking off all the forward options. I also placed a next button after the slide completes.
I'm wondering if something can be set up so that if the learner has watched the video and advanced and then comes back, they won't be required to watch the entire video again before advancing.
Any help would be appreciated.
I have published several blog posts concerning that 'Forced viewing'. But mostly for normal slides, not for slides with synchronized video.
The last one may be a solution, not the first one.
Another solution will also use two Next buttons on the timeline: one that is timed to start at the end of the video (as you have already I suppose) and one that is at the start of the slide, timed for the rest of the slide, but initially hidden in Output). You can create a Boolean variable v_visit (as discussed in the first blog) with a default value of 0. Create a conditional advanced action to be triggered On Enter for the slide:
IF v_visit is eqaul to 0
Assign v_visit with 1
The normal way to do this is to use variables and Advanced Actions, with the variable being used to track whether or not the learner has visited the slide, but you can do it simply with Advanced Actions alone.
So what will happen here is that when the learner returns to this slide, the covering shape will now be hidden and the navigation button is visible by default.
Only problem with that approach is that it cannot be used in a responsive project with Fluid Boxes, because stacking objects is not allowed
That is correct. But if your project belongs to the 90% that are NOT worried about being responsive, then it would be the simplest option.
@Rod I know, Rod, but US developers are crazy sometimes , they often develop responsive projects unnecessary. For each solution I post, try to think about mentioning whether it can be used in Fluid Boxes. In Europe the situation is different, as it seems to be in Australia. Only occasionally a real responsive project is required here.
Interesting points in your discussion since I see the same - after a year and few months of Responsive design in the market - very little adoption of this format for the clients that I have been teaching and in the projects that I have been asked to build.
Whow, so it is not limited to old Europe and new Australia?
