Learning Journal In Rise


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.

HI Paul

Have been following your convo this evening while working late. Am based in QLD Australia here too. I have been working with Learning Journals in some modules I'm developing and have recently engaged someone wayyyyy more technical than me to do some backend programming with the checklists so that it retains the selection and then can collate and email to someone (asks for email address input).

Looking at some branching scenarios with hidden topics in the menu next.

I like the work that you have been doing on the link you posted.... Some interesting things there!

Yes, we are pretty packed in in some places though it depends where you were staying! Certainly compared to Aus :) 

I particularly liked the use of animated gifs for the image hot spots...And I'm about to start experimenting with integrating H5P since we literally just got accounts for that.  I think the embed tool is a bit underused. Though annoyingly when I have it set to a decent size I seem to get excessive amounts of padding underneath the embed frame. Is that something you've seen?

Ha! It's lovely and sunny here but the temperatures are currently between 0 and 12 degrees or thereabouts. It's gorgeous out just now (nearly 10am) but 5 degrees. Not quite shirtsleeves weather yet. It's meant to be a whole 14 degrees at the weekend!
