Branching using an online poll
Oct 30, 2013
I would like to ask a user a question which branches to a feedback/answer slide but, unlike a standard question, I want to use the results of an online poll to trigger the branching so that the user can immediately compare their response.
To keep things simple, the poll has two questions. If the student answers A and the poll indicates that A>B then this will branch to "you are in agreement with the majority of other voters". If the poll indicates A<B then this will branch to "you are not in agreement with the majority of voters". Both feedback slides provide an opportunity for a slightly different discussion or learning opportunity relating to the poll and the user's response.
Obviously it is possible to insert a web object to show the poll and vote on it and, if enabled by the polling software, to see the current state of the poll.
"IF A>B THEN ..." appears to be an obvious variable but how can the current (live) poll result be collected to trigger the branching? Accepting that I might be asking for the impossible, I am constantly amazed by the innovative solutions of the Articulate Community and thought it was worth asking!
