not out of the box. but you could use a quiz on your first slide that takes them to a rejected/verified slide depending if they get a question wrong or right.

The rejected slide would be the last slide and locked and only allow them to exit. (With big red letters, a flashing light, and loud klaxon sound...just to emphasize they were rejected access LOL)

Hi Everyone,

We are hoping to take the password protection one step further.   

We would like have a password that is specific to the user.  Now I was thinking of using a web object to display a website/window with a spot to input a username and password. This would be  is connected to a database, which could be easily updated as our users grow. How I would get the web object to prevent the person from going forward with the presentation if they get the password wrong?

I am running this in Moodle so there is already a password to get into the course, but they have requested an additional unique password for the lesson itself.

Any ideas?  Would this work?

Why?, the user must login to access moodle, then give a password for the course, then for the scorm, if you are trying to restrict access wouldnt the initial two passwords suffice, and also if users are sharing passwords they would also share this one as well.

The web object would not work because it cannot prevent the user moving forward without a lot of work

Matthew,

The webobject is displayed in an iframe that sits on top of the player content, so users can't access what's underneath it. There's a way to hide the iframe via Javascript. So hypothetically you could have a  PPT slide with a button to advance the slide, then put your full-screen slide web object on top of it. In your web object, when the user passes authentication, include the script to hide the iframe, thus revealing the flash button to continue on.

How do I set the quiz not to display the result? Just go to the last slide if the answer (password) is incorrect and go to the next slide if correct?


I sorted this one. But I've set the quiz to go to slide X if failed but it doesn't it continues to the next slide. Also I have set the first slide with my password question to display slide only (not the left menu). Fine, but it doesn't show the menu on the other slides.

Hi me again,

Need help on this one.

I have added a quiz,  a garded question, fill in the blank called password. 100% passing score. Only one correct answer (the password). If failed go to slide no 137, if passed go to the next slide. Last slide is locked.

Presentation settings is to display slide + menu, on the first and last slide I have set to display slide only.

Problems:

Even if failed it takes me to the next slide

The menu is not shown on any slide although I have set it to show slide + menu on all slides except the first and last

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Nothing more irritating than not getting or finding a reply in a forum so I reply myself. OK found out that I can't have 0 points for a correct answer, 100% of 0 is nothing, right?! so therfore the system treats it as passed..... about the sidebar, I went through all my slides and set it to standard or slide only.
