Pick-a-Topic Based Course

I want to create a course where the first slide enables the leaner to choose desired topics from a larger list.  I would like this person's course to then run linear (moving from topic-to-topic) so the learner does not have to come back to a menu and choose another topic.  Each learner will most likely choose a different linear course than their peers.  I figure I will use scenes and branching to accomplish this, but I'm confused on how to make the randomly chosen topics become linear.  Is this possible?

Hi, Dan,

It does save the user a few clicks to bundle selected topics and play them linearly. However, consider the impact if a learner changes their mind. What if they find a chosen topic isn't what they wanted? What if they want to add a new topic? What if they want to go through the topics in a different order than the program presents them linearly? What if they want to review a completed topic because of what they learned in another topic? A simple menu screen gives the learner more overall control. I think that's worth a few extra clicks.

I still like the idea of allowing users to create their own list of topics and control the order in which they want to review them. As a designer, you can build in controls that enable them to go back and change their selections if they decide this is not what they want.
