creating variable for section and course completion
Jun 18, 2012
I would like to share the following with those of you who are still working through variables and course completions:
I am creating a course that has 3 sections for users to complete. Once they have reviewed the slides for each section and return to the introductory slide, the section box for that slide is ticked off (similar to the Pandemic flu demo) .
I asked this question to Jeannette Brooks and her response was:
"create a true/false variable for each section, to track whether the section has been viewed. Each variable is initially set to false, and add a trigger at the end of each section to change the section’s variable to true. That way, when the learner finishes a section and returns to the menu, the variable switches to true, and then use the value of that variable to control whether the menu item appears in its Visited state or not.
The trigger on the menu would say something like: “Change the state of Menu item 1 to Completed when the timeline starts, if the variable Section1Complete is equal to True.
My next question is, once the 3 sections have been completed, I want the 'congratulations' you have finished this course (with the possibility of printing off a certificate) - so is this an additional variable/trigger that is set up on the Menu slide ??
