How to create a "Review Previous Topic" page at the end of course?

May 15, 2019

Hello All,

I'm creating a course where there are six topics, each in separate scenes, that are presented linearly to the learner.  At the end of scene 1, a trigger is built to jump to scene 2; at the end of scene 2 is a trigger to jump to scene 3; etc.  

I want to create a "review" page at the end of the course where there will be six buttons/objects that can jump the learner back to one of the previous scenes.  This will give them an option to review one or more of the previous topics before moving on.

The problem I'm encountering is that simply setting up an object to trigger jumping to one of the scenes will force the learner to run through all content again.  Ex: If they want to review topic 3, the course will automatically take them to scene 3, then through topic 4, 5, and 6 before landing them on the "review" page again.

I want to set this up so if they're "revisiting" scene 3, it will automatically take them back to the review page at the end, instead of taking them through scene 4, 5, and 6 like the did they first time through.  

I hope this makes sense to everyone.  Any thoughts on how to approach this?  Thank you in advance!

Hi Aaron,

This can be achieved using variables. If you set up a new True/False variable for each scene (e.g. Scene1Revisited etc) and change these from False to True when you click on the respective button in your Review slide, when you get to the end of the reviewed section you can jump to the next scene if the revisited variable is False or jump to the Review slide if the revisited variable is True - see attached example.

Make sure your triggers are in the correct order (adjust variable before jumping to next slide) and also make sure you adjust the triggers for the player "Next" button on each slide as well. Note that I have not added any additional triggers or a variable for Slide 3 as the next slide is the Review slide anyway.

Hope this makes sense. If you have any other queries just get back to me here and, if necessary, share a copy of your Storyline file if you are happy to do so.
