Role-based training using variables in Storyline

I am developing role-based eLearning. I built it in Articulate Presenter, but would like to use StoryLine to create a menu of roles, and then based on a chosen role have the student take certain modules. So let's say there are 7 modules.

Role A would take modules 1, 2, 4, and 6

Role B would take modules 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7

Role C would take modules 1, 2, and 4

Based on the role they selected from the menu, they would be directed to the appropriate modules when they advanced the slide.

It would seem that I could do this by setting a variable (%role%) and then based on the value of the variable, advance to the appropriate slide.

Do you know of any tutorials/posts that explain something like this?

Excellent! Thank you Phi! I found a similar response in another thread titled "Branching based on a variable" in a post by Vispi:

trigger 1: jump to slide X (in the conditions just say IF variable tool = unique number)

trigger 2: jump to slide Y (in the conditions just say IF variable tool = unique number)

trigger 3: jump to slide Z (in the conditions just say IF variable tool = unique number)

I think this will work for me!
