You can allow your learners to jump from one slide in your eLearning lesson to any other slide via interactive slide objects. Adding this level of user interaction is commonly referred to as branching.
To create a branch, select an interactive slide object (such as a button or click box) and select Jump to slide from the On Success drop-down menu (via the Action group on the Properties panel). For example, in the image below, the Play Lesson button has been set to Jump to slide 3 in the project.
While creating branches by jumping to slides based on a slide's number is simple enough, creating multiple branches is likely to get confusing for you as a developer. Since the slide numbers themselves do not offer any clue as to what is happening on any given slide, prior to creating a jump you will need to memorize what is happening on the target slide (or map things out before creating the branches). Instead of jumping to a slide by number, consider naming the destination slide and then jumping to the slide based on its name.
Name a Slide:
- Select a slide and visit the Properties panel.
- At the top of the Properties panel, type a slide name into the Name field (the name can contain spaces).
In the image below, the same button shown in the first image above is selected. Notice however, that instead of simply jumping to Slide 3, the jump is targeting the third slide, which is named Begin Lesson 1.
Note: If you'd like to see a demonstration of jumping to named slides, visit the IconLogic YouTube channel.
