I have test questions scattered throughout a course. How do I require that the question be answered before moving on to the next slide?February 26, 2016 at 2:03 pm #306290
Hi! I am sure there are other ways to do this, but I use a condition to the next button that the question must be answered in order to go to the next page. Like this:
Trigger: Mouse Click
Action and Target: Go To Next Page
Conditions: Variable Question_0001 Relationship Is Not Empty
Else Action: Display Message “You must answer the question to proceed.”
I hope that helps.February 26, 2016 at 2:15 pm #306291
Thanks Deidre! I found these instructions: http://trivantis.com/help/Lectora/16/ENG/Lectora_Help/index.html#2893.html but I don’t have a Behavior ribbon. I’m attaching a screenshot of what I see.

The Behavior Ribbon is attached to the Test. (See Screen shot below.)
When I scatter my questions throughout the course, I don’t use the Insert Test. Just Insert Question. (My questions are not scored, either. ) That is why I attached the Condition to the Next Page button.

Ah, that makes sense. I’ll see if I can get my buttons to cooperate again. I tried your suggestion once, but it didn’t turn out right. Do you do this with inherited buttons, or do you do something special to the button (disinherit it, or something?) to pull this off?February 26, 2016 at 2:34 pm #306296
Oh. No. I should have mentioned: Not inherited buttons. Each page has a next button because I use the Condition to advance a lot to assure the student has completed the task on the page.February 26, 2016 at 2:36 pm #306297
Gotcha! Last question, relevant to the other question I posted. Can you make “Next” conditional based on letting an audio clip play all the way through?February 26, 2016 at 2:42 pm #306298
Lol Yes! That is the other reason each page has it’s own Next Button. On the audio clip, add an action: Done Playing, Show Next (or whatever your next button object is called.) It works really well.
Couple of things I’ve learned from this: Warn your students that the next button will not appear until the audio clip has finished (or they will look for it and think something is wrong.) And, make sure your clips are edited so there is not silence at the end to make the clip run too long.February 26, 2016 at 2:47 pm #306299
Thanks! This has been really helpful for a newbie like me!February 26, 2016 at 2:55 pm #306301
For some reason, my buttons aren’t appearing when the audio is finished playing. I’m attaching a zipped file of the presentation to see if anyone can help me troubleshoot.March 1, 2016 at 9:45 am #306370

I was able to get it to work after converting the audio to MP3 (Lectora will force the change when you go to publish because all audio has to be in MP3 and video in MP4 to be HTML5 ready). I also changed the audio from initially visible to visible then changed the player to invisible. You can see it on the page “John Dwyer”. I was able to get it to work in Preview Mode and Preview in Browser Mode.March 1, 2016 at 9:56 am #306372
Thanks Jennifer. I’m having a different issue now. I haven’t tried converting all of the audio yet, because I’m having an error in all of the preview/run/browser modes where the base page shows up but nothing else appears correctly. Same thing in Review Link. I’m attaching a screenshot. I contacted Customer Service about this, but they haven’t offered any suggestions on how to fix it yet.

I’ve experieneced that issue before if ActiveX is running when I get into the browser. Are you trying to view the course in IE?
I was able to open the files you shared and then the new version I created so I’m not sure what’s going on there. What version of Lectora are you running?
I think some of the issue you’re having may be due to that fact that your audio has the same name in the title explorer. I would try changing the names to something more unique and trying again.March 1, 2016 at 2:56 pm #306387
I’m viewing in Chrome. I never use IE. Is that the better browser for this product? I’m running 16.0.2. I will change the names of the audio and see if that helps.
