When revisiting a slide how can I reset to initial state only after after visiting a certain slide

Nov 07, 2016

I have a slide with 5 Modules-4 disabled button Modules.  Learners are to complete each module before moving onto the next. Module 2 button changes state to normal when module 1 button is visited; etc.  There's a quiz per module and Final Results slide that tabulates all 5 module quizzes.  If learner does not pass in the Final Results, How can I reset the initial Module slide (that has already been visited 3 times) so learners must start in sequence from module 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 to 5.

would like

Hi George!

Have you considered creating a second menu slide (a duplicate of the first menu slide) that is only accessible if the learner does not pass in the Final Results slide? That way, instead of jumping back to the original menu slide which has already been viewed multiple times, the learner will jump to the duplicate menu slide, which requires them to complete the sequence of modules from 1 to 5 again. Does that make sense?

Interested to hear any other ideas your fellow community members have to share!

yes but the learner will be directed back to that slide to complete the next module, thus resetting it and creating a loop.

sounds like there's no solution. i was trying to be creative.  i ended up removing all the buttons and just created a linear type of course, 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 then final results and if standard isn't met, it goes back to 1

Great point, George. I hadn't thought of that. :)

I like your idea -  you can put a menu slide between every module. Since you have 5 modules, that would be 5 menu slides. Each menu slide would allow the learner to click on only the next module and all previous modules. That way the learner would feel like they are always returning to the same menu slide, but really they are moving through the course linearly. 

Best of luck to you on the rest of your project! If you come across any more road blocks, be sure to reach out!
