Design quandary

Aug 14, 2012

Greetings Articulate community.  I am working on a module the requires me to insert 14 PDF documents that list state requirements for underage alcohol sales.

The sponsor does not want them placed in the module as attachments; they are concerned that they will go unused.  They want me to design a graphic interface where the learner could click on their state and be taken to the slide (location) where the document is located.

I may or may not be able to upload documents as part of the SCO, I have not received an answer from our LMS provider yet.

I believe that Presenter only supports "next" and "previous" hyperlinks, so I cannot find a way to successfully use hotspots or any other link support from within the module to go to 14 separate slides.

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

You could find a map image of the US that has each state "sliced". Import into PPT and then just right click on the state image and have it go to a certain slide #. Then at the end of each state-specific slide have the next button go to the "bring everyone back together" page. Previous button would go back to the map. (control the branching of previous/next buttons in Slide Properties)

You may also want to lock the "map" slide to make sure that they select a state. (done in Slide Properties.)

Hope this helps.
