Storyline Video: Prevent learner from fast fowarding, but allow rewinding and resume.

Dec 22, 2017

I have a long video that I need to confirm that the learner watches the entire length. Ideally, I'd like the following capabilities:

  • Prevent learner from skipping forward through video. I want to ensure the entire video plays.
  • Allow rewind if they miss some and want to skip back.
  • Allow resume if they want to watch across multiple attempts.

Basically, I'd like the single video to be just as functional as overall navigation setup where you can allow the learner to navigate freely within what they have already viewed, but NOT skip forward.

I have considered breaking up the video into segments, but VERY MUCH prefer to keep it as a single video file.

Hi Jeffrey

Not sure if you are using custom navigation controls on the video or you've added the default SL controls but perhaps for the first pass through you could place a transparent rectangle (Fill with 100% transparency not NO FILL) over the video/controls so they can't skip it, then change the state of the rectangle to hidden when media completes.
