Hello fellow rockstars,

I hope you can help as I am at a loss. I have two problems that I need help with.

Problem 1.

I have built a package that has an audio narration that automatically plays when the page loads. I have added a variable to each page and an instruction that after the learner has listened to the audio in full , if they were to revisit that page again, the audio would not play again. When testing it in Lectora Online, this works. However, when I upload it to ReviewLink or our LMS (ESR) , it does not work.


Problem 2

I have noticed with recent uploads of new packages in the last 2 months or so, learners are not being prompted to the last page they visited. At first I thought it was because the packages I was uploading where to large, but I have since uploaded a small package and its not prompting learners to the last page visited.... all older titles that I have published to my LMS (ESR) prior to September all direct learners to the last page visited and still do.

Any ideas on how to fix these problems would be greatly appreciated.

BW,
Jenni

    1. You might try to give the Play action a short delay to make sure variables and audio are ready before the condition is used.
    2. Make sure you publish with "Prompt the user to navigate ...". There's not much more you can do. The size of the course should not matter. If this doesn't help you might test the package in scorm cloud to see whether it works at all.

    Thanks Tim. I ended up taking off the autoplay on the audio and changed the action on the audio to be > on doneplaying set variable equal to 1 and then on the page I added an action to be > onshow if variable equals to less than one play audio. This seems to have done the trick.

    On the prompt user - I do have this ticked which is why its so weird that it will work on some but not others.

    Thank you for your advice.
