Disable menu click until media finished playing

Feb 18, 2014

I know how to disallow users from clicking the built-in next button until media playback/timeline is complete.

How do I disallow users from jumping slides on the left menu sidebar ? Until slide timeline is complete... then they can jump slides...

Hi XAn,

If you're using the menu on the side, your options to restrict navigation are to set:

  • Free: This allows learners to click on the titles in the course's menu to navigate to any part of the course at any time. They can view whatever slides they wish, in any order.
  • Restricted: This means learners can view the current slide and any slide they've previously viewed, but they can't use the menu to jump ahead or skip over slides.
  • Locked: This means learners can only view the slides in the order you've designed. They can't use the menu to jump ahead or skip over slides, nor can they use it to skip back to any previously viewed slides.

So you'd need to use the "locked" setting.
