Scan code from within Storyline?
Is there some way that a Storyline-created resource could use a device's camera to scan a code, and branch to a particular slide in the resource? (And if so, would that work when the resource is downloaded into the Articulate Mobile Player app, and used off-line?)
In the project we have, we would ideally want students to wander around an outdoor environment that has no WiFi or mobile coverage. They would carry an iPad that has the Articulate Mobile Player app installed, and the Storyline resource pre-downloaded onto it. The students would run the Storyline resource, and look for codes to scan (e.g. QR codes). When they scan the code, the Storyline resource would identify it, and branch to a relevant slide in the resource. After working through a few slides, they would end up back at the 'home' screen, ready to scan another code.
I have created a Storyline resource where students can type a six-character code into the iPad, and Storyline uses that to branch to the relevant slide in the resource - but it would be simpler if the students could use the devices camera to scan a code, instead of typing it in (with possibly wet fingers/mistypes).
