Have you ever wanted to add more interactivity to your e-learning course by including a Dynamic Menu Slide with links to sections of your content? You would not normally use this type of navigation for strictly linear e-learning modules. But if the course module has several content sections and they can be done in any order, a menu slide makes good sense.
Well in these video tutorials I show you how to do just that with several progressively more complex examples, starting from a bare bones simple example, up to menu slides that include visual feedback to indicate which items a user has interacted with, and finally to a very complex menu slide that is built into the Infosemantics project template that you can download for FREE from this website.
Start with simple examples first!
The first video below explains how to create very simple menu slides that require only interactive objects. Then it moves on to two more complex examples that require custom User Variables and Conditional Advanced Actions. Don't worry if yiou are unfamiliar with these concepts as I explain how everything works from the ground up.
(If you want even more written explanation about how to create these menu slides, as well as downloadable CPTX example files, you can get it all with my e-book Guide to Adobe Captivate Advanced Actions.)
Watch the first YouTube video below to see how all of this is done!
Taking things to the next level
The Infosemantics template for Adobe Captivate has a built-in Dynamic Menu slide that is far more complex than the simple examples explained in the video above. The next video below builds on the concepts explained above and showcases how to use the dynamic slide from the Infosemantics project template.
(If you don't already have the Infosemantics template, download links are provided on this earlier blog post.)
