Use blocks to create custom lessons

Unleash your creativity with the learning blocks in Rise. They're components you stack to create unique lessons that look gorgeous on every device, in every orientation.

Rise Blocks
Modular and flexible

Simply choose blocks from an extensive library and add content. Combine blocks in different ways to build unique, custom lessons—the possibilities are endless. While each block is stunningly pre-styled, you can easily create your own look by swapping in fonts and your brand color.

Dozens of block types

Add text, statement, quote, and list blocks to tell a story and call out important information. Build media-rich learning experiences with image, gallery, and multimedia blocks. Create lean-forward learning moments with interactive blocks. And encourage learners to master content before moving on with the continue block.

Storyline integration

Add a Storyline 360 module to your Rise course to get the best of both worlds: custom interactivity in a gorgeous, fully responsive course. Use the continue block in Rise to make sure learners complete the Storyline content in your Rise courses. You can choose to track the completion of a Rise course based on a trigger, quiz result, or the number of slides viewed in a Storyline block.

Dazzle with interactions

Get your learners swiping, tapping, and fully engaged. The interactive lessons in Rise are simple to build, fun to experience, and beautiful to behold on every device. You add text and media—Rise does the rest.
