    I have test questions scattered throughout a course. How do I require that the question be answered before moving on to the next slide?

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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’m not sure what’s happening differently on my end vs yours, but when I click “convert to MP3” it “breaks” my project and gives me a javascript error that can only be fixed by deleting the audio object altogether. I can’t open your version of the file, it gives me errors.

    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.

    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.
