I am building a course in Captivate and three sections of this course include PDF's that are 60-100 pages each. To insert the PDF I used a Web Object and linked it back the file on my laptop. The layout looks how I want it to look but now I would like to setup the "Continue" button to only display after the learner has viewed the entire PDF.
Is there anyway of setting up an advanced action that would show the "continue" button after the learner has viewed the entire PDF?
My only other idea is to adjust the timing of the continue button so that it only appears after a given amount of time but just trying to make sure I'm not missing a possible function that could automate this step during the course.
So you want to prevent the learner from being able to continue a lesson until they have read an entire 60-100 page PDF? No problem.
Please share your results with the forum when you have it working.
Thank you Rod for taking the time to not just answer but also provide some very clear steps. I will give these steps a try and report back with the results.
Reading a long pdf doesn't seem to be 'eLearning to me'... Rod's elaborate answer is telling exactly the same in his way...and had me smiling, thanks Rod!
It is OK to provide learning assets to the learner of different types, but including a long 'novel' inside a Captivate elearning course is to me an ANACHRONISM.
I get daily reminders of why I am grateful to work for a company that allows me the freedom to develop learning assets that will benefit our employees and customers.
Today - this thread is my reminder.
Have an awesome day, everyone!
Not wanting to ruin anyone's day...but...I thought I should just mention that there is no ScanPDFWords action in Captivate.
Thank you for the update Rod. I'll continue working with my initial game plan in that case and work with what I have.
Have a great day everyone and stay safe out there.
