Disable Next Button with Articulate Presenter
Oct 19, 2015
I have a PPT that needs to be SCORM wrapped as an eLearning module and I am trying to replicate what I usually do when I make modules in Storyline: Slide starts with NEXT button state as Disabled until the timeline on that slide completes. Then the NEXT button state changes to normal, and the person can advance to the next slide. Seekbar nav locked so they can't skip seekbar to near end of timeline and then NEXT button state changes to normal so they can advance.
I do this because I actually want to make sure my learners are learning and not skipping through the content.
When you work from PPT, it seems those options are slightly different (and, correct me if I'm wrong, but you alter these settings in the "slide properties" option under the Articulate tab in PPT). It seems the closest I can come to mirroring the Storyline settings I prefer is to:
1) Make navigation locked, so the person can't click the NEXT button. However, this also means they can't ever click PREVIOUS, or replay a slide, since locking navigation locks all navigation on that slide. I would have to set each slide to auto advance. I don't like this option because the learner is very passive. They click a button and then just watch the entire module, no interaction. I'm also aware people may start the module, then simply walk away and come back when the entire module is complete (which is no better than simply clicking NEXT to skip through the module).
As far as I'm aware, there's no option to make navigation locked until slide timeline stops, upon which time it is free (This would be ideal).
Can anyone help me replicate my Storyline settings or confirm to me it isn't possible? I'd love feedback on what I'm missing that would fix my problem, workarounds, or other solutions. Thanks in advance.
