Learning Journal In Rise

UPDATE JUNE 2020:

Firstly, Articulate recently implemented a small update to Rise. As a result, all new exports from Rise will need to include the most recent version of LearningJournal.js which is found at the usual link.

Secondly, at any time Articulate could update their code and bring a breaking change to the Learning Journal. Over a year ago, I shared this functionality freely with the community and the code comes with no warranty or support either implied or expressed. If at any time you want or need to remove the Learning Journal from your modules, simple remove any STATEMENT-NOTE entries that refer to the Learning Journal.

I built a cool Learning Journal feature for Rise that has been very well-received. I thought I'd share it in case anyone wanted to a. use it or b. improve on it.

 

The Learning Journal allows the learner to enter text responses to journal prompts throughout a Rise course. At the end of the course, the learner can print their learning journal of all their responses. The responses are saved to the browser so that they persist on future visits to the Rise course.

 

EDIT May 2019: At the request of a member of the forum, I created a HOW-TO video below that shows each step of the HOW-TO document in action.

I would love any feedback and help to improve the functionality and code.

Thanks Mike. This looks like just what we need.  Unfortunately, I get this message from Google Chrome when I try to save the two files:

Why the download was blocked
Your file download may be blocked for one of a few reasons:

We think it might be a malicious, unwanted, uncommon, or insecure file.

Malicious: You tried to download malware.

Unwanted: You tried to download a deceptive piece of software. This program, disguised as a helpful download, may actually make unexpected changes to your computer or device.

Uncommon: You tried to download an unfamiliar and potentially dangerous piece of software.

Insecure: You tried to download a file or program that wasn't secure but was started on a secure page. In some cases, you can choose to download anyway.

We've found that the website you tried to download the file from has been known to distribute malware.

Can anyone confirm the current safety of these files for download, or otherwise?

Hi guys, this is a great bit of info and it looks really good when I've used it.  My only issue seems to be the Print My Actions button.  I have multiple sections, some with actions and some without.  But it only seems to show my very first section on Print my Actions.  Anyone else come across this?

Greetings!  My name is Tracy McLean. I wonder if you would be willing to have a short zoom call where I can screen share with you.  I have tried several times, unsuccessfully, to get the journaling function working.  I have met with someone that has succeeded in creating it and we have not found the source of my error.  Please let me know if this is possible.  I would be very grateful.  Thank you!

HI Tracy,
Yes I would be happy to, any time after Tuesday next week. We're on Australian Eastern Standard time here. Can you send me a Zoom meeting invite for a time that works for us both?
Cheers
Jane
