A few questions

Hello Articulate Team:

I have a couple of more questions involving my course.

1. Is there anyway to seperate the menu, i.e. my course has 17 chapters, and what I would like to do is when a user is in one chapter, all they see in the menu section are the slides that deal with that particular chapter, I don't want them to see the slides in the following chapter.

2. Is there a way to pass multiple quiz scores from my Articulate course to the LMS site I am using to host the course (the site I am using is Moodle)?

3. Please see the attached file.  When you hover over the characters head the hover effect works, however, when you hover over their body you get a weird effect with it, that I don't want there.

Check this out for your menu problem

http://community.articulate.com/tutorials/products/customizing-the-player-menu.aspx

The unusal behavoir in your roll over is because your layer opens over the roll over area.  This causes the roll over area to lose focus and then the layer hides, then the roll over is active and the layer opens, and so on.

Either move the location of your layer content outside the roll over area or make it a click action with a close layer button or icon.

Hey Garth,

Thank you for the help.

However, for the Menu issue, what I want is to ensure that only the specific chapter is being viewed in the menu section.  For example, when a user is in Chapter 1, I only want them to see the slides in the menu section for chapter 1, when the user moves on to chapter 2, I only want them to see the slides in the menu section for chapter 2, not chapter 1 or any other chapter.

Hi has, anyone figured out the answer to my above question?

The main issue is  I want is to ensure that only the specific chapter is being viewed in the menu section.  For example, when a user is in Chapter 1, I only want them to see the slides in the menu section for chapter 1, when the user moves on to chapter 2, I only want them to see the slides in the menu section for chapter 2, not chapter 1 or any other chapter, without having to break up the course into separate courses.

Hi Elizabeth-Jamey,

I don't believe it's possible to accomplish this, exactly. However, one thing you could do is start with displaying only your first chapter expanded, so the learner will only see the slides listed for that title. You could have the following chapters closed when the course begins. You could also lock or restrict the navigation, so the learner can't advance to another chapter by clicking on the title in the menu. Though, this isn't really what you're looking to do, it may help a little.

In my opinion, though, if you truly do not want to display any of the other chapters or scenes in any way, while the learner is in a specific chapter, you could simply disable the built in menu all together and create your own, custom menu. Not only would this give you more options and opportunity for customization, you would truly be able to limit what sections the learner can see/can't see.

Hi Elizabeth-Jamey,

You could design one using shapes, buttons, triggers, etc. What I would probably do is create different menus for each chapter, since you don't want the additional chapters to display. You don't even have to make this look like a standard menu, you could place it along the top of the slides, or the bottom - or even get fancy and make a roll-over (hover) menu. Really depends on your style. 

I can try to work up an example, if you'd like. Can you give me a screenshot or mock-up of how your current course is designed?
