Skipping chapters in videos

Since the end users for our training videos may have different levels of knowledge of a topic or platform. For instance, some may be viewing the videos as a refresher while others are being trained on a platform for the first time. Alternately, some may be familiar with one part of the task, but not another. I imagine that the users would like to be able to select which chapters in a training video to view, so I’d like to see this feature, whether in the form of clicking on the chapter or listing timestamps and chapter titles.

Thanks Gloria. I have asked the support team to answer your request. There are a number of parameters you can use to control our video player and I believe, that you should be able to achieve what you are trying to do with the current release (with some minor tweaking of your production template).

Hi @Gloria Stevens 

There are a few options for this. One is to use the flow role for an interactive experience in the video itself, this can be complex to set up, though its a rewarding experience - it may not be exactly what you are looking for.


Instead I propose you make use of chapters and subchaters in such a way that the end user is never in doubt of what a chapter will cover, they can then choose to skip to specific chapters in the recording.

The nice thing about chapters, is that these are also reflected in the written content in form of the table of content, providing means of easy navigation and a good level of consistency.

If you are always using the same set up chapters, you can also have your template automatically set up a new recording with a set of specific chapters, should you with to have a set beginners and advanced chapters - as well as an introduction and objective, or whatever could be applicaple to your case :)
