You have created an interactive screen that you are proud of. You show it to the customer. Overall, he likes the screen, but requests you to hide/disable the Next button till the learner has clicked all the interactive objects on the screen. The customer wants to make sure the learners view the content linked with each interactive object before moving on to the next screen.
As an eLearning professional, you don’t believe in forced navigation and have made the content interesting enough to engage the learners. But you need to implement the changes suggested by the customer.
Don’t you get into such a situation once in a while? Here’s how you can quickly enable forced navigation for your interactive screens created in Adobe Captivate 5.5.
Take a look at this example screen. The Next button will appear only after you have clicked all the five tabs.
Here are the steps you need to follow to implement this functionality:
- Create your interactive screen. Here are the demonstrations for creating:
Click Project > Variables and add new variables. The number of variables should be equal to the number of interactive objects on your screen. In this example, I have added five variables, namely, A1, A2, A3, A4, and A5 to match with the number of tabs.
So, the next time you are asked to add forced navigation to your interactive screens, don’t fret! Follow these simple steps to enable this functionality.
