Content Planning Template/Document

Jul 09, 2017

Just thought I would ask the question before I build one myself, but has anyone developed any kind of word document/template to facilitate development in Rise?

Basically a script document that contains the content that needs to be authored in Rise, along with what kind of content-type is required etc.

Yes this would be VERY handy. We produced a template file in PPT for Storyline lessons (template slides for different activities etc) but as authoring in Rise is more akin to a Word document it would be great to have a template to replicate this. This would give content authors a structure to work to, an awareness of the kind of interactions then can work with and a sense of lesson structure (headings, sub-lessons etc). By doing that, the eLearning team will find it much easier to build the Rise lesson. 

The challenge I can see is how to give authors the knowledge of tools available e.g. accordion, flip card, gallery etc. I can't see a way of making template 'elements' in a Word doc template.

Hi Allison

The reason why is that we have many content authors who do not have Rise subscriptions. They are also busy professionals so to give them a template to work with would make a lot of sense, and help our team of content builders - so they are not having to try and 'work things out' when given a messy document.

As stated, PPT/Keynote worked well because you can have template slides that show the kind of interactions that could take place. Not so easy on a Word doc.
