Limiting tab interaction until tab is visited
Apr 21, 2015
Hi you lovely lot.
Hope all is well.
I've created a module based around tabs on the right hand side (like file dividers in a ring binder).
We only want the learners to have free interaction of what tabs they can visit, once they've gone through the module once in a particular order. (i.e. they can go back to the pages in tab 2 and return to tab 4 without going through tab 3 - as long as they've already visited tabs 2, 3, 4 already in the right order....does that make sense??? The order is locked the first time through, but once the pages in a tab have been viewed, it's then unlocked and they can go where they want)....
I just can't seem to think of a way to do it.
I've created the tab look in slide master for ease - as there are multiple slides in each tab....I'm thinking something with variables might work but I've never actually used them since my training course.....
Would it be possible to deactivate a tab interaction on the slide master until the variables on all pages in a tab are true (true being when a slide is visited?). I have no idea if that's even an option! If it is, would having the slides set as return to initial state when revisited mess with the variables? There's narration etc. on each page so if they want to revisit it, it has to start from the beginning. Or is there a trigger to 'replay' a slide or 'reset' a time line?
ANY help or ideas would be amazing.
Thanks in advance as always.
