Pre/Post Question Events

In continuing our series on SimLab VR Studio, let’s delve into managing Pre/Post Question Events for quizzes and surveys. The Training Builder is an essential tool for dictating when a quiz or survey appears in the scene. Typically, you might start a quiz or survey after introducing new material to the student, or even at the very beginning of the scene for a dedicated Quiz VR experience.

However, there are instances where a specific question within your quiz or survey may require additional scene setup or may need the student to focus in a particular direction. This is where Pre/Post Question Events come into play.

To implement these events, you’d click on the Pre/Post Question Event button in the Quiz/Survey dialog. If this is your first time clicking the button, a new event will be added to the Training Builder, as depicted in the images provided. This event can be configured to execute all the necessary preparations for the question.

If the button was previously clicked, selecting it again will open the Training Builder and zoom in on the Pre Question Event, allowing you to check or modify it as needed.
