Learning Paths in Rise?

Hi all, longtime Articulate user but I've yet to use Rise. My understanding is Rise does not support branching per se, but are there any workarounds that would facilitate a learning path-style approach? Say I have a collection of 15 mini courses but all 15 won't apply to every learner. Instead, they would choose their specific occupation or interest on a launch screen, which would then compile a custom curriculum for them (say, they are presented with courses 1, 2, 3, 7, 11, 14 as a "complete" package they proceed through sequentially). How might this be done in Rise, if possible at all?

Hi Chris,

I've got a few ideas for you!

Check out this Rise course that Tom Kuhlmann created. He used a button stack with each button linking to a different lesson to create the feeling of a "branching" interaction. 

Another option would be to provide links within one Rise course to separate learner-specific Rise courses. 

And if you're feeling really creative, try your hand at this tutorial on hiding menu entries to create the "fake branching" effect. 

For LMS tracking, use the tracking option “Track using course completion.” Set your completion percentage at the minimum percent your learners need to view to complete one part of the course. For example, if your course is in two equal parts, you may want to use 50% as the completion percentage.

I'm looking forward to seeing what other ideas the community has for you!
