Resume Saved State for slides with little/no interactivity

Jul 07, 2015


So after having read the guide on the website about slide properties, particularly about the option to Resume Saved State, it mentioned that when automatically deciding, if a slide was simply a slide with no interactivity, such as some text and a voice clip, it would not resume exactly where the voice clip was cut off. I assumed that meant that setting the slide to Resume Saved State would therefore save the exact spot of the voice clip, but after testing it several times, I just can't seem to get it to do anything other than resetting to the beginning of the clip.


I feel like I'm missing something very simple, but I've really been having trouble trying to get this simple voice clip to resume exactly where it left off when revisiting. To be specific, I have been testing to see if a user can close the page that the player is on, and then open the page back up to see if it will save the exact spot it closed at. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Good Afternoon, John.

I would expect the When revisiting property to resume the saved state of the slide when leaving a slide and staying within the course, but not necessarily when exiting the course altogether and resuming it on the slide that contains the audio.  Suspend data is saved when moving to a new slide, so I don't think the course will remember the learner's progress within a specific audio file upon resume.

Good luck with your project!

Ah, I see. That's a shame, as we've had a history of users simply leaving lessons in the middle, and trying to come back later, only to find that they've been sent to the beginning of a slide again. And since some of our slides are simply lectures that may even last 10-20 minutes, having to sit through it again is a bit too much. 

Is there any other way to have the exact spot a user is at saved, or can I really only save to the beginning of a slide?
