Quizzes - prevent viewer from advancing when answering incorrectly

Is there any way to do this?  I am trying to create an instructional video.  Wish list:

1.  Prevent the user from scrubbing ahead.  We want them to WATCH the video.

I realize people can just let the video play and go take a nap so I'm flexible with #1.  Also, the player does not let them advance beyond the questions, which is fine.

2.  Add questions throughout.  If they answer incorrectly I want it to take them back to a point in time and then ask the question again.  *They should not be able to continue watching the video until they answer correctly*

I set up my quiz so that a wrong answer will take them back to a particular time in the video. But when this happens the question disappears.  It doesn't ask them again.


At the end of the video I set it up so that it directs to a web page with a form so viewers can submit their contact info, which we use as validation that they "watched" the video.  We do not have the resources to contact viewers who did not earn a particular score and have them take the quiz again.

--------------

It seems that perhaps I am trying to use this software in a way the developers did not intend.

Any ideas or workarounds?

Thanks

Hi John,

1.  Prevent the user from scrubbing ahead.  We want them to WATCH the video.
It is possible to hide the player controls once the video begins.  You would have to manually modify the Camtasia output and add a line of JavaScript to one of the HTML pages.  If this sounds like something you want to explore, let me know and I can add some instructions.

2.  Add questions throughout.  If they answer incorrectly I want it to take them back to a point in time and then ask the question again.  *They should not be able to continue watching the video until they answer correctly*

Currently the player currently will not meet your needs.  Once a user submits an answer for a question that you have setup to have feedback it is marked complete (correct or not).  So when you have the player jump back in time that answer is locked.  If there are no more questions at that time, then as you've seen the dot on the progress bar is removed.

The idea around this feature is to provide helpful context to why you got it incorrect or correct.

You have an interesting use case and I wish I had a good workaround.  Even though this doesn't help you today, I've saved this idea and maybe we could supply that option in the future.

Thanks Ben,

I get it, it's a quiz.  But, yes please add that as an enhancement request.  It's nice to know the scrubber bar is removable via editing the files.  Though, this sounds like it would also prevent the user from rewinding and turning on captions which is not good.  I'm going to remove #1 from my needs since I'm satisfied with how that currently works.

How do I edit a post on here?  I would also like to edit another post but the option seems to have been removed.

I don't think you can edit a post after someone response to it.
