Restricting the Next button until all the content has been read
I have a thought provoking question.
I am creating this induction course where the employee is given information about the organisation.
Now, one of my colleagues wants all the slides to be restricted until the content has been read. I know how to do that but feel it is not empowering for the learner.
For this module, we aren't even testing them on their knowledge it is just information. I strongly feel that the slides shouldn't be restricted. We are dealing with adults.
But my colleague feels that the learners are just going to click next and go to the end, therefore, she wants me to set the time for each and every slide. I just feel it is like being back to the school for learners, so dictatory. If they don't want to read it, they'll just wait till the Next button becomes active. We are still not able to ensure that they are reading unless there was some sort of action to come out of it.
My apologies for the rant, but i feel divided on this. I would like to know your views on this. Should you restrict the next button on every slide especially for a course where no knowledge or skill is being tested?
