Block Lesson

Blocks Lessons

Use blocks to create custom lessons. Blocks are components you stack to create unique lessons that look gorgeous on every device, in every orientation. Add text, statement, quote, and list blocks to tell a story. Build media-rich learning experiences with image, gallery, and multimedia blocks. Create lean-forward learning moments with interactive blocks. And share blocks with your team using block templates.

Blocks Shortcut Bar

Add the most common blocks to your lessons faster. Choose blocks from an ever-present shortcut bar without opening the sidebar.

Simplified Lesson Selector

Pre-built lessons are now available as blocks, so we’ve retired pre-built lessons and simplified the lesson selector. When you create a lesson, simply choose a block lesson or a quiz.

Convert Prebuilt Lessons to Block Lessons

Convert prebuilt lessons, such as labeled graphics and timelines, into blocks. Then you can add more blocks to the lesson.

Block Templates

Build Rise 360 courses faster by saving existing blocks and their content as block templates. Then reuse them in other lessons and share them with other users on your Articulate 360 Teams account.

Text Blocks

Relay important information with text, statement, quote, and list blocks. Rise 360 has multiple styles of each block type, making it easy to tell your story in a visually compelling way.
