In Captivate 5, is there a way to force a learner to view a slide for a minimum amount of time -- and to grade them on viewing for that amount of time?
Let's say that you need the user to stay on a slide for a minimum 30 seconds. Here are two ideas:
Idea One: Delayed Navigation Buttons
Idea Two: Points Attached to a Button
Puzzled too. Why not grade upon actual learning: ability to answer questions about the content or perform the process correctly?
But if you want this I suppose it depends on what other navigation options you have in your project. Are you using the playbar or table of contents?
Assigned or not, you need to take this back to whoever requested it and explain that it is not sound pedagogy to attempt to force someone to spend a certain amount of time on a slide. The learner ought to only have to be on the slide long enough to consume the content on the slide, and that happens at different rates for different learners (and at different rates for the same learner, across multiple attempts). Cite this thread if you need support, or hit ProQuest for some empirical backing. Even with more linear formats, like video, where you're more in control of the overall pace, there user can still take advantage of play controls to skim content (and that's a good thing).
