Variable Storage and LMS Timeout
Jul 10, 2015
One of my users has run into a problem with a module that was recently launched. This is about a 2 hour long module with fairly extensive branching and over a hundred variables.
I'm posting the slide in question: it prompts the user to choose 2 out of 5 candidates for interviews. When a second candidate is selected, the remaining 3 should dim and become disabled buttons.
Right now, the student has selected two candidates (Finalist 01 and Finalist 04), but the remaining 3 are not dimmed. As a result, the entire module is frozen. My guess is that the variable tracking how many candidates are selected (finNumSelected) has not incremented or de-incremented correctly. Unfortunately, I have not been able to duplicate the problem.
I'm not 100% certain where or how variables are stored. Could this problem be the result of the user timing out of the LMS while the module is still running? Could it be affected by bookmarking? Am looking down the wrong path?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
