Creating and publishing training with Rise is easy and fast. The next step is to get training to your learners. If you want learners to find courses by browsing the library, make your training discoverable by turning on library visibility. A more direct method is to enroll learners in your training.

This article describes the following ways for enrolling learners in training:

Self-Register Learners in Groups

One of the best ways to get learners into training quickly is by assigning them to groups. When a user is part of a group, they're automatically enrolled in all training that the group is enrolled in.

Once self-registration is enabled for your account, you can create self-registration that automatically adds new learners to a specific group. Just create custom auto-generated URLs for each group you want to add learners to and share them. That's it.

When learners self-register using the generated URL, they're automatically added to the associated group. Group self-registration URLs are for new learners only.

Manually Enroll Groups and Existing Users

For learners already in your organization, manually enroll them in a course via the Manage tab. This works for published and unpublished courses.

Select Courses and then click a course title. In the course settings, select the Learners tab and click Add Learners (or Enroll Learners if there are no users yet added to the course).

In the enrollment window, start typing a name. A pop-up automatically returns learners’ names as you type. Click a name to select it and add the learner to the list. Once your list is complete, click Enroll Learners.

If you’d like to enroll multiple learners at once, click the Groups tab instead and follow the above method to add groups to your course. When you enroll a group in a course, every user added to that group will automatically be enrolled in the course. Click here to learn more.

Automatically Enroll New Users

When you invite a user to your organization, you can add them to groups at the same time. You can invite individuals to groups one by one on a per-invite basis or add multiple new users at once to the same group using the drop-down menu on the Add Users screen.

When a group is enrolled in a course, every new member of the group is automatically enrolled in that course when they accept the invitation to your Rise account. Click here to learn more.

Add Users to Groups via CSV

When you use CSV to bulk-import users into Rise, add them to groups using the Groups field. When a group is enrolled in a course, all group members are enrolled as well. As you add users to a group, they’re enrolled in all courses in which the group is enrolled. Click here to learn more about CSV import.

Enroll Users via API

If you’re API-savvy, you can use the Rise API to enroll users and groups in courses. With the handy Everyone group, you can even enroll your entire organization in a course. Learn more about Rise API course enrollments here.

Enroll Users via Zapier

Connect your Rise account with your Zapier account and you can automate invitations to your organization. This includes adding new members to groups when they accept your invitation. As mentioned above, when a group is enrolled in a course, every new member is automatically enrolled when they accept the invitation to your account. Click here to learn more about Rise and Zapier.
