Disable Play Bar's "Scrub" capability - a checkbox option on a video-by-video basis
Fellow Panopto Forum Members:
It has been suggested that I put this enhancement request up for a vote, to see if there is sufficient interest by others using this incredible tool.
I have an LMS with several "training" courses that require the participant to watch video content all the way through from start to finish (by internal or regulatory mandate). Many of our participants have little or no academic integrity, and will often use the Play Bar’s “Scrub” capability to just do a quick wipe through and call it "done". The LMS has a timer that must expire before the video module is marked "complete", and the Scrubber participants will call to complain that they "finished the module, but it won't mark complete". We know why, we tell them why, but they will argue with us, and it seems to be a never ending battle.
Solution / Enhancement Request:
Create a check box in Settings that enables code that masks / hides / disables the Play Bar's Scrub function. The Play button is still there, the Rewind button is still there, the Volume button is still there, but the Scrub Bar and the Speed Button are gone, disabled, unseen or not usable.
This will help us to enforce the requirement to view ALL the video content for all participants.
The check box is an option that can be applied, or not, on a video by video basis. It only needs to be checked for those videos where Scrub Bar Disabled is required / desired.
Can I get a YES vote from enough of you? Or have you worked out other solutions for a similar problem?
