What actions are associated with BranchTrack?

BranchTrack includes two new actions: Done Playing and Reset BranchTrack.

On Done Playing can be used to trigger an event once a simulation has been completed.

Reset BranchTrack resets the simulation.

For more information on variables, please visit the Lectora Inspire Information Center or Lectora Online Information Center.

What variables are associated with BranchTrack

BranchTrack includes two new variables: BT_Score_<Object Name> and BT_Path_<Object Name>.

For BranchTrack simulations, the score variable contains the score of the BranchTrack scenario, where <object name> is the name of the BranchTrack object. If the scenario has not yet been started or the scenario cannot be scored, the value is 0.

For BranchTrack simulations, the path variable contains the path (selections) through the BranchTrack scenario, where <object name> is the name of the BranchTrack object. The scenario path is identified as a colon-separated value, such as “:1:2:7:25:”

For more information on variables, please visit the Lectora Inspire Information Center or Lectora Online Information Center.

    Can you copy a scenario to another course?

  2. Desiree L DePriest

    BranchTrack has completely corrupted in my Lectora, and it seems our simulation is gone. Not happy.

    How can I delete a branch track scenario that I don’t want to use?

      Currently, there’s no way to delete a scenario. According to our partners over at BranchTrack, it’s coming soon. In the meantime, you can contact their support team ( about removing the scenario or upgrading your account to include more slots.

    How does translation work for branchtrack scenarios within Lectora? Does branchtrack text get included in a regular text export?

    1. Sergey

      No, BT text is not included with Lectora export. You’d need to create another copy of your BT project, translate it on BT and then insert into your translated Lectora course.

  5. Sarah Price

    Hi, we have 5 licences in my team, can you tell me if there is a cost to using the BranchTrack scenario-based simulations please?

    We have Lectora Inspire 17.

    Thank you

    I’m a bit lost with the “host 5 simulations at one time for free”.

    If I don’t want any hosted by BranchTrack can I create simulations limit-free?

    If I create a sample simulation, to see how it works within Lectora, and then subsequently delete the sample doesn’t that still count towards my limit of 5 simulations?

      If you don’t intend to have to revise or reopen a simulation in BranchTrack, you can delete it in BranchTrack once it’s been downloaded to your Lectora course, and it won’t count against the 5 hosted simulations.
