Trigger Needed to close URL in slide for SL2

Hello,

Here is what I want to do and I can't seem to figure out the right trigger:

-launch a new file in my current window using the "jump to URL" feature.  I have this set up and it is working fine.

- I want the learner to close this URL after reviewing the slides.  I added a trigger to a button on the last slide (exit course when clicked) - yet, the whole course shuts down.  I only the launched URL to close.  

Can you help me with the appr0priate trigger?

Thank you,

Terra

If you launch another URL in the same browser window and then close that URL it will of course close the browser window it resides in. You could launch the review slides in a lightboxed slide that contains a webobject which in turn displays the slides' URL. That way, you keep all content in one browser window.

Thank you, Michael, for your suggestion.  Hmm - I had started with the Web Object approach, but then switched to the "jump to URL" because it appeared to be an easier solution for me.  So--- if I want the learner to view the URL in the current browser, are you saying that there is no way to close that URL "in the current browser window" without shutting down the whole course? 

What we are trying to do is pull out several tutorials from this course and we want them to either remain as part of the full course, or used as JIT training for refresher training.  Yet, we don't want to have duplicate course files to maintain. 

I hope this makes sense.

So far when using the "jump to URL" trigger, I cannot figure out how to close that URL without shutting down the original course.  I did set one tutorial up as a web object last evening and the learner jumps to a new slide when it launches.  It seemed to work, but now I have to figure out how to size it so it doesn't look like they are looking at a full course "within a larger story size."  I am seeing two menus, two seek bars etc. 

When setting it up as jumping to a URL, it looked seamless  -

I actually was able to set it up properly.  I inserted a web object on the slide.  I then launched to a new browser window.  I triggered the tutorial to close the tutorial using the Next button (last slide).  This returned the learner to the original course.  I did this just on my own C Drive and placing the tutorials on our SharePoint.

We ultimately want this to work on our LMS so at this time, publishing to the LMS and then testing it.
