I am looking for some help because I’m not sure what to do.
When using the text field component. We ask for the learners to input an answer and then upon selecting submit, the answer is revealed (in a hidden block). This is done using a trigger (when component complete, then reveal the hidden block).
However when a user is completing the module, if they revisit a section (that could be from within the module or following them exiting and returning to it later) where content has been revealed in this way, then:
- the text field is empty (no answer saved) and de-active (greyed out)
- the content which had been revealed has been hidden again
In order to get the content visible again, we have to include the edit option for the text field and the learner would have to resubmit to re-reveal the hidden block.
I have asked our LMS provider and they have said that this is working to be expected with SCORM 1.2. And I have also now found out they don’t support the cmi.mode (review mode).
Is it because the cmi.mode isn’t supported that content revealed by a trigger doesn’t remain revealed? Or is it another reason related to how the triggers are used?
Any help would be gratefully received.
