Create fully responsive e-learning courses with Rise, the online training solution that your learners will love

There’s nothing to install, so you can get started right away. Just sign in, then click Create to see your dashboard. (Click here for a list of supported web browsers.)

Let’s explore the Create dashboard. Use the following image and the numbered list below it to learn about each feature for managing Rise courses.

1. Site Navigation

2. Create a New Course

To create a new Rise course, click the New Course button to access the Create New dashboard. From there, you'll be able to create courses using partner content, real content course templates, or placeholder content course templates. You can also create a blank course.

3. Change the Sort Order

Sort courses by last modified date or alphabetically.

4. Organize Courses in Folders

When you create folders, they’ll appear in the sidebar in alphabetical order. You can move courses to folders so they’re easier to find. And when you delete courses, you can restore them or permanently delete them later. See this article for more details.

5. Interact with Course Cards

When you first visit Rise, you’ll see cards for a getting-started video and a sample course. As you use Rise, a new card appears for each course you create. Each card displays the course’s cover photo or accent color, title, lesson count, last modified date, and the owner’s avatar. 

Additionally, you’ll be able to see what courses you’ve published, submitted for publication, or have unsubmitted changes on. Learn more about submitting courses here.

Click a card to open the course for editing and previewing.

6. Manage a Course

Hover over a card and click the ellipsis (...) that appears to see a menu of options for sending, duplicating, moving, and deleting the course. 

  • Select Send a Copy to send an independent copy of the same project to another author on your team. Changes one author makes to a course won’t appear in other authors’ versions, and vice versa. Learn more here.

  • Choose Duplicate when you want to create a new course with the same layout or similar content. Enter a name for the new course and click Duplicate

  • Move To lets you organize courses in folders so they’re easier to find. Find out more here

  • When you Delete a course, you can permanently delete it or restore it from the Deleted Items container. Click here to learn more.

  • Select Download as PDF to quickly export your course. Click here to find out more

Tip: Some collaborators won’t see the ellipsis menu on course cards. Only course owners and course managers can send, duplicate, move, and download PDFs of courses. Only course owners can delete courses.

7. View Course Statistics

Once a course has been published to the library, hover over the card and click View Stats

On the back of the card, you’ll see how many learners are enrolled in the course, how many lessons of the course have been completed by all learners, and a tally of total learning hours.

Additionally, if you’re a reporter or admin, you’ll see a link to the course report at the bottom of the course card.

Click the X in the upper right to return to the front of the course card.
