Slide State Issue


I am working on a new lesson and I want to do the following:

  1. When a student visits a slide, they must click on certain hotspots.  Until he/she does, the next button is disabled.  
  2. Once the student clicks on every hotspot, the next button changes to normal and the student may proceed.
  3. The issue is, I am having a hard time figuring out how to set up each slide, after it was successfully visited, to keep the next button as normal and not require a student to click on every interaction (hotspot) again.  

I searched for ways to do this but nothing is working for me.  I looked into slide states and set them to "Resume saved state" but when I run the lesson, the slides still require interactions.  I looked into variables but I am at a beginner to novice level and have no idea how to properly set this up with variables.  

Thank you in advance for reading this post and any solutions you may offer.

When I need to do this I create a True/False variable with the initial value of false. When all hotspots have been clicked, change the value of the variable to true (trigger, what: adjust variable). Then when you revisit the slide, you can do actions based on the value of the variable.

Let me know if you need additional direction on how to do any of those steps.

Here's a post I did a while back. It covers the essence of what you want to do.

  • Track each hotspot clicked using a t/f variable
  • Set the next button to hidden when slide starts on condition that all those variables are not true. When they're all true, upon revisit, the next button should be enabled.
  • Set a trigger to change the next button to normal when all of the variables are true
