I have a chapter comprised of 10 short videos. I want my students to be able to:
- first time they watch all videos continuously,
- subsequent times be able to pick and choose the sections they want to go into.
Is this possible?
I have set each video to autoplay, but after clicking NEXT, they are shown a screen where they have to select which section to do next.
Those pages in between each lesson are meant to give students a quick break and show them their progress. It helps to keep the student from dropping off and increase completion rates. They can also continue to click on the Next button to jump into the next lesson instead of choosing which one to see.
Currently, we're not able to remove those pages but I will let the product team know that you're looking for this feature!
Automatically going to the next lesson when you click next would be much better, they can see their progress on the side panel so no need to bring it up in between each video and have them select the next video.
I agree. There is too much clicking, as they already click next.
Agree! I did some user testing of my course and they found the extra step unnecessary or even confusing. Hoping that you will add a feature to make the step optional into your backlog!
I agree with these comments. Giving students the ability to "go to the next lesson" is an important feature. Like it or not, students expect this feature as they are used to it already from other platforms and I personally like this method myself when I'm taking courses as well. Perhaps as an instructor, all we would need is a checkbox within the "Video" type lessons that says, "Auto play to the next lesson". Of course, keep the existing "Next" button for obvious reasons. So, having the option to "auto proceed" would really be a nice enhancement to the already world-class platform of Thinkific.
