I know there are great tools for creating interactive video (like BranchTrak), but has anyone ever created an interactive scenario-type video learning module using just Lectora (and, of course, pre-recorded video files)? I’ve created interactive scenarios in Lectora before using images and text, but I’m specifically looking into whether I can use it to do video “choose-your-own-adventure”-style scenarios, like a mock sales call.
Thanks, Lazaro! I get how to set up actions for it and such…I guess what I was wondering was how smoothly it would run — how much you could make it feel like you were staying in the video as you were making your choices (if you know what I mean).
Thanks again, though, for taking the time to respond and to even include a screen capture! 🙂
There would definitely be some feeling of interruption as you go to another page, it loads, then it loads the player, then it preloads the video, then it starts playing. And on mobile devices, there would be no autoplay (not yet.. coming to Lectora real soon). So here’s a trick: put both the “question” video and the “consequence” videos on the same page, and when learner makes a choice, hide the question video and show one of the consequence videos. This should be much smoother. And then you can jump to the next page and it won’t feel like such an interruption to the learner.
Yes. I didn’t realize you wanted it on the same page. I thought you wanted the pages to change based on choices.
Like Sergey said, best way it to keep them on the same page.
You can show one video and hide the old on, you can use a change contents command and change the content of the video to a different video.
