Restricted navigation with branching scenario
I have a sad feeling that I already know the answer to my question, but I'm going to ask it anyway, in hopes that I am wrong...
Is there any way to restrict user navigation (so they can't jump ahead in the course) but still use hyperlinks to create branching? I have my course set to User Navigation is Restricted (in the player template) and that worked great in my little prototype, but once I added in some hyperlink branching and tested it, I realized that the user can only hyperlink to the next slide, if you try with any of the other links you get a message saying you can only view the slides in order.
If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear 'em!
