We've partnered with Next Big Idea Club to bring to Rise life-changing training content from the world’s most brilliant luminaries. These courses feature videos from the authors themselves, sharing their insights directly with learners.

Finding Next Big Idea Club Content

Next Big Idea Club courses have their own category on the Create New dashboard. You can also add individual Next Big Idea Club lessons to your courses. If you add individual lessons, consider that Next Big Idea Club content is sequential and builds on previous lessons. You may need to add some context for your learners.

Note: When you use Next Big Idea Club content, the original author or authors are automatically credited as the author of that course or lesson and, in the case of course overview pages, include links to the Next Big Idea Club site and to purchase the author's book. These links also appear in Next Big Idea Club video blocks. The links display only in conjunction with Next Big Idea Club content and can't be edited or removed.
