Adding Background Music

Hello Community -

I've been hearing and reading mixed reviews about adding background music to interactive exercises.

Brief background, I've built an eLearning course and I'm tempted to add background music when an end-user comes to an interactive exercise built with either Quizmaker or Engage.  The music I want to add is all instrumental, for example Classical or Jazz.  This would play until the completion of the exercise.  The end-user has the option to turn down the volume in the player if they choose too.  

The exercises itself do have animated figures, backgrounds and branching scenarios  to add some color, but the exercise is all text base.  I'd like to add another level of engagement without taking away from the lesson, hence the reason I want to use instrumental music.

I'm hoping I can get some thoughts behind this.

Thanks ya'll

Hi, Neil -- Thanks so much for your question! And while I am not sure which articles or discussions you may have come across already, I thought I'd stop in with the following for your review:

How can I make a background music play continuously across multiple slides/layers?

Hope that helps! :)
