Dear friends. I have found a (very) partial solution for the 'double'
button problem at the bottom of the quizzes (one –the good one– sending to 'next page'
and the other –the bad one– one sending to 'next activity').
This second one (it is a 3.4. feature) breaches one of the most sacred rules in web surfing and User Experience: "Don't send people to the same point using two different ways or buttons'. Users already know how to arrive to the next 'activity' on the course. They simply go back to main menu and then choose it. This 'next activity' option is a shortcut for experienced users, but quite a pain in the ass for newbies and for people on their smartphones or tablets (finger tapping on it is horrible, it's just beside the other one!)
Sorry for my English.
I mean the bad button is right next to the good one, which makes surfing on small screens or tap-based devices (finger on a tablet or a smartphone) very bad navigation experience.
message is only for people obssessed with clearity and useful
navigation experience. It's quite a time-expensive solution, but I
finally did it.
I am a quite obssessed person about UX and
cleanness on the screen. Furthermore, the course I teach is for teachers
(I mean, for people more used to create courses rather than to
enrol on them as students, so, for them, I need Moddle to be the simplest as
possible). If any of you have ever teach to teachers then you know how difficult can things become... oh God.
Well, then HOW TO DISABLE THE 'go-to-nex-activity' button below the quizzes.
I've realised that this button don't appear when the Quizz is the 'LAST' activity in the course. Or at least the last one 'visible.
So, there's two ways to disable the button:
1. Making the rest of the next activities in the course invisible or access-restricted (which sometimes is not possible, of course). In my case it is possible for most of them except for one one last activity at the very end of the course called 'Bibliography' which of course must be visible all time.
So, what's the other way.
2. The second possibility is based on the fact that this ugly and unnnecesary 'next' button cannot see LABELS! It doesn't consider labels as activities, so you can show a 'label' on the course with a link to the activity, so the second is always accessible, but at the same time keep it invisible for the 'bad button'. This can be done with an invisible SECTION (a section 'not shown' to students) that includes 'visible' activities. This apparently contradictive behaviour of Moodle is very very useful. I learnt about it here in another forum a couple of years ago: Visible activities kept on invisible sections still keep their 'link' usable, so, just make the most of it.
So, now i've moved my 'Bibliography' to the hidden section but kept as a 'visible' resource. (When moving to it, Moodle 'hides' the resource, you must manually change to 'visible' again). So students still can see a nice label with a nice book icon redirecting to the bibliography and access it by just clicking on it, but while they're answering quizzes there's nothing 'next' to the quizz activity, so the 'next' button dissapears.
I've included a screenshot below to show the different aspects between both: in the left side you can see the 'Next Page' blue button together with the 'next activity' button. In the right side you can see the clean version. More friendly to smartphones or tablets 'tap/finger'-navegability.
