Lightbox slides and completion

I have a project with some lightbox slides with additional information (not compulsory). The project is published as a SCORM module with a status completed when the student has viewed all the slides. Is there a way to exclude the lightboxslides?

Of course I can decrease the number of viewed slides for completion with the number of lightboxslides, but then the student can skip normal slides when he has viewed lightbox slides.

Hi Chris,

To my knowledge you cannot exclude certain slides from the 'view all' option.

Could you potentially work around this by adding a secret quiz and results slide then track by result (bear with me, I haven't actually tried this).

My thoughts are to use a content slide towards the end of the module, convert it to freeform and remove all the data onscreen. Put two buttons off screen (correct and incorrect) and link them to the auto generated correct and incorrect layers then trigger correct to change to selected when user presses next.

Then maybe just before the last slide insert a results slide. On that slide jump to final slide when timeline starts (so the learner won't see it- and remove from the menu)

Then track via the results slide. Logically I cannot think of a reason why this wouldn't work but I haven't actually tried it.

Hope this helps

If the information that is on the lightbox slides isn't compulsory, you could create documents containing this information (i.e. Word or a pdf.) instead and add them to the Resources tab?

Hi Antony,

Thanks for the suggestion but this is not an option because we want to access the additional information via hyperlinks and it is not possible to link to an item in the resources (or glossary).

Hello Harri,

This is actually the way I was thinking of. I asked my client if it is all right to send a score status to lms instead of a completion status.
