Pausing when student clicks another window

Sep 16, 2018

In SL2, is there a way to automatically pause a course when the student goes to another browser window/program, so that they can't just set it to play and then ignore it?

Hi Katie!

The course will pause if the learner opens a new tab in the same browser, but it will continue playing if the learner opens a new browser window

I would suggest separating content onto multiple slides, and have the learner navigate to the next slide by clicking the Next button. This way, you'll prevent the possibility of the learner missing several slides because they're viewing another browser window.
