Course Completion Button

When you complete a course, there is no obvious way out of the course, just the X button at the top of the course itself. Could we add in a "Save and Exit" button to the screens, or a "Close Out" button or something which is a bit more obvious how to exit the learning screen?

    I agree with this strongly. It would be one thing if the "X" button was there on mobile browsers, but at this time it doesn't appear unless you hit the "expand course details" double arrows on the bottom of the screen. The "X" button appears on a computer browser and the Absorb app, but not the mobile browser for cell phone or tablet users. This makes having uniform course instructions manually added to the course (which is one solution to this problem) a bit of a pain to create/convoluted as the "X" button may or may not appear depending on what kind of device the student is on.

    In addition, we have folks that take their training on a tablet or smartphone using the browser version of the course since our organization will NOT allow us to use the app. For these folks, they don't even see the X or navigation most of the time. So for them, they have to click those two up arrows at the bottom of their screen, which are extremely hard to see. Then they have to click on the Lessons tab to see the navigation. Most of my users are truck drivers and warehouse team members. This is so NOT intuitive. Since the new user interface last year, our help desk is inundated with calls as to how to get credit for training. Please provide an intuitive fix to this - soon.

    This is something I agree with as well. How to exit a course is not very intuitive specially for those learners who are not tech savvy. And it gets even more confusing when the 3rd party course has it's own X or Exit Course within. Which is the majority of them.

    Agreed. While the X is intuitive from an "applied knowledge" perspective, people who are not tech savvy get very confused by the X in the course versus browser window.

    This is a great idea and much more seamless.

    I would love to see this option. We are a new organization joining Absorb and noticed that the "x' is so far up and to the right it is not going to be intuitive for our staff as it being where they close to log completion of the module.

    You have variables so would be nice to have a variable to attach to a button. Normally in things like Articulate storyline or Adobe Captivate you build an "Exit Module" button and the trigger/variable is exit and record completion in the LMS. Alot more obvious and I don't have to tell the learner to select the "x" in the top right to complete.

    Good Morning,
    See the circled X in the screen shot below.

    Yes, that is correct.
    Something more explicit that the X on that top corner.

    Best,

    Not OP but this would benefit us too. A lot of confusion tends to exist with externally created courses. For example, I've got a screenshot attached where the course has been imported. There's Absorb's "X" at the top right, the course's own at the top left, and an "Exit Module" built into the course. Using anything other than the LMS "X" means the course completion isn't updated correctly and still shows as In Progress, and often doesn't record the last quiz score within the course (though Absorb does record the date/time spent). We've added an FAQ to confirm the correct process but this relies on people accessing this and being aware of it prior to completing the course. So making it clear that the X is a "Save and Exit" or the main button to use would definitely benefit our business too.

    Thank you for the idea.

    Just to clarify, you are referring to the x on top of the course as in the screenshot below?

    You would like more than the hover state, you want a button which is explicit " Close out" or " Exit" ?

    From a UI experience, more than a few times I've had people write in to our helpdesk/chat with us because they are confused. And even had people ask if we could make a 'how to use the LMS' tutorial, which says to me that its not intuitive enough in its design.
