"Locked" Courses with VO OR Captions
I am wondering if anyone has any tactics that make sense for courses where the navigation is intended to be locked, but there is the choice of listening to voice over or reading captions.
If locking is the strategy we go with I am finding it hard to find a way to gauge slide completion if the person is choosing to read captions instead of listen to audio. For example, usually I would set the next button to active after the audio has finished, but someone who is reading the text instead might finish finish faster and still have to wait. That's not very friendly.
I know there are issues about locking/unlocking courses to begin with, and that ideally someone would be motivated to take the course all the way through or simply tested at the end for credit. But it's reality that many of our SMEs request this regardless of whether they can pass an assessment at the end. They want to ensure exposure to the content itself.
To that I feel like saying that you can't have your cake (locked navigation) and eat it too (simultaneously allowing someone to read on their own), but I was just curious to see if anyone has any other approaches, or if it's really something where we just need to say "Pick A style or pick B style".
