Articulate Rise Content in LearnDash LMS

I'm New to developing eLearning and I find Rise amazing but I'm challenged with moving it forward.  I've created a session on Rise and used storyline to hopefully create a trigger to get me back to my LMS (learndash) but simply it does not work, Please see my test model for an insight

This leaves me a few questions:

  • can I create learning as a stand-alone program with Rise or do I have to use the story for trigger coding?
  • how do I get back to the learndash once the session is finished?
  • how do I make it trackable so users can log in and out of the learning model?
  • how do I use the progression model to mark complete at the end of the lesson?

Any thoughts,  pointers or links would be amazing as I'm at a dead end at the mo

Thanks in advance.

Hi Joe,

Let me see, I just exported from Rise to xApi.
So you don't need another tool to do this.

The export settings:
LMS > xApi (Tin Can)

I didn't put it in LearnDash myself, so if that's a problem I should ask my colleague who works on that part.

We have tried putting the Rise course in the LMS in different ways:

- inside LearnDash: that made the course a bit small

- In a Lightbox: that was better, but not really suitable for mobile.

- As a seperate window in the browser: this seemed the most suitable solution.

Please let me know if you want me to ask about putting the xApi file in LearnDash.

Hi Joe,

I've got the same problem, having purchased Articulate 360 and LearnDash. 

I can find articles, forum posts, and tutorials on how to export from Articulate Rise into SCORM, web, or xAPI (Tin Can); very easy! However, I can't find anything showing the actual process of getting those into LearnDash (with or without Tin Canny LearnDash Reporting).

I've seen mentions of “uploading to your web server” and “linking to the html file,” but again, I haven't found any examples or walkthroughs. 

Please let me know if you've got another solution now.

Johnny and Joe,

Setting Learndash up for SCORM or Tin Can Api is all explained on the Learndash support pages. You will need a third party plugin to make it work, but once you have it installed and set up the insertion of a package is quite straight forward. See the plugin here, https://www.uncannyowl.com/knowledge-base/authoring-tools-supported/?ref=2

Hi, 

1. can I create learning as a stand-alone program with Rise or do I have to use the story for trigger coding?

A= Yes you can use Rise and Articulate to generate a trigger using a LRS. Grassblade triggers are not overly complex to set up. Uncanny costs more but has a few more features that are handy for some. 


2. how do I get back to the learndash once the session is finished?

A= If you use a LRS  (grassblade is awesome for xapi) you can launch in new window and have a"exit training" at the end. This will close the training and return to previous page. Once refreshed (you can also add a refresh function by adding a snippet) the training will show as completed.


3. how do I make it trackable so users can log in and out of the learning model?

A = The LRS will remember and allow the resume feature when exporting to tincan using storyline forever. Unfortunately at this time Rise does not have this feature. Once Learndash ticks a course / lesson / topic as completed it will be completed forever.


4. how do I use the progression model to mark complete at the end of the lesson?

A = You can drip feed modules using Learndash or have Lesson progression, points progression and a few other cool things that Learndash can manage from the course page.

I have set up a few sites using 360 and Learndash and setting up a LRS can be a bit tricky if hosting the LRS externally.

One of the sites I recently completed is TANDI 

 

Good luck.

Followers of this thread may find the work that I have been doing with my LearnDash progression plugin helpful: https://community.articulate.com/discussions/rise/articulate-storyline-integration-plugin-for-learndash-lms-now-supports-articulate-rise 

Be aware though that this only provides a method for learners to 'virtually click' the Mark Complete button in LearnDash from inside a Rise module, it will not track, report or store learner progress which is where an LRS solution, such as the one Peter recommended, would come in.
