Master Lesson connected to secondary lessons

Hi All,

Is it possible to have a master eLearning that controls the user's journey through several other eLearnings and then links back at the same point in the master.

Case in point:

A set of users that need to learn a system at different levels.  Could I use a master lesson to query their needs, link them at each step in their appropriate learner journey to another lesson, then link back to the main lesson again after that lesson is complete, at the same point they left the master on.  Then the master could allow them to continue with their journey by doing the next lesson the master eLearning recommends for them based on their system usage needs.

I know it's complex in concept, just wondering if it is possible in reality?

Many thanks, 
Kat

Thank you for your reply Daniel.  The eLearning catalog is 54 separate eLearning lessons and we are looking for a way to make the learner's experience a little smoother.  One suggestion was a master eLearning lesson that would take people through the lessons they needed for their role.  I'm not sure how possible that would be?  The LMS is a little unfriendly and I'm not sure how much control we have over that atm, I'm investigating it with the SMEs this week. 

Do you think it would be possible with separate lessons?

Hi, Kathleen:

If you didn't want to have one huge course/module, you could create a slightly different version for each specific audience. Basically, you'd be copying the file and customizing that version for your specific audience. 

Or you could have a generic, intro module, and after that's done, you could have the specific module be the next thing in sequence. That might be the easier to maintaining the course. --Daniel

Hello Kathleen, 

I worked on something similar for a client and managed the various "courses" in scenes. I used variables to keep track of various learning milestones.

My course ended up with about 10 scenes. 54 might make the course run slow. 

I like Daniel's suggestion below - creating slightly different versions of the same course to fit a specific learner group. You could still keep each course comprehensive for that learner group, but also manageable enough so that everything functions smoothly.

Let us know what you decide to do. I'm interested in knowing which "solution" you go ahead with.
