New Rise feature: Continue Block

We've just a released a new Rise feature and I think you're going to love it. It's a brand new block type called the "continue block."

Use continue blocks to progressively reveal content and make sure learners complete interactions before moving on.

Check out this overview video:

Can't wait to see what you do with continue blocks!

Great idea, Molly! And by the way, changing a text label will affect all your Rise courses that use the same label set.

For example, if you edit the text on the "Continue" button in the built-in English label set, every course that uses that English label set will automatically get the same changes. I'd recommend creating a new label set when you need to customize text labels so you won’t accidentally change the labels in other Rise courses.

With the new Storyline block, the Continue button 'lights up' before starting the Storyline interaction. I would like it not to be available until they have completed the Storyline mini-course. How can I do that (and yes, it's set to only work when the content immediately above it is complete, but turns on anyway). Thanks!

Great question, Dave! Storyline blocks are similar to embedded web content. You can’t require learners to complete them. Once you scroll to the Storyline block, the continue button will be enabled.

Could you add a knowledge check question after the Storyline block to check the learner's understanding of the content?

I believe the answer is if you're putting that audio/voice over in a Storyline block, then you can't enforce that they listen to it. But if you put that audio in as a media block in Rise, you should be able to require that they listen to the whole thing with a Continue block configured correctly. Hopefully in a future update, they'll fix it so the Storyline block can also work with the Continue block to check that people have finished the Storyline item before moving on.

Now the resticted navigation dosent work as before anymore. Before you have to go through all text and pass the quiz before you was able to continue to the next block and now its possible. Its very important for us the the participants cant go the the next step before passing the quiz with 80% and after your update they can. And the new button have no effect on the quiz. How shall we solve the problem?

Is there any way to make a quiz a "stopping point" in the middle of a course?  We have a course with content after the quiz and users can move past the quiz even if they failed it...

I can't seem to get the Continue button to work with an interactive button.  For example, I need our learners to click on the button (to launch a procedure to read), and I want the Cotinue button to be hidden until the procedure review button has been clicked... however... the Continue button shoes up even before the procedure review button has been click.  please help!

Hi Dawn,

The Continue block has two options for what needs to be completed, either all the blocks or just the block directly above. It sounds like you'd need a few more options, so I'll share that idea with the team! 

If this isn’t quite right, please let me know what you need and I’ll be happy to help.

Dear Articulate Team,

If a user presses Continue button and a new portion of content becomes unfolded - it will stay unfolded even if the user navigates from the lesson away and when they return - it is still unfolded (meaning, Continue can be pressed only once to reveal the content, and the content will stay revealed forever, until the user reloads the complete course).
We would like to create a behavior where the content under Continue can become hidden again even if it was already reviewed once by a user.
Also, if I add at the bottom of the lesson a "Go To Top" button (if a content after Continue was pretty long) and link this button to the lesson itself - Rise won't jump to the top of the page but will do nothing if I click this button (as I am already in the same lesson).
It would be great to have the possibility to jump to the top of the page too.

Is it somehow possible to achieve today or should I submit a feature request?
Thank you very much!

Hi Justin!

Thanks for posting your comment here. You can indeed change the color of the Continue button. The Color of the continue block is controlled by the Accent Color you set for your course (instructions on how to set accent color here: https://community.articulate.com/articles/rise-personalizing-the-theme). So whatever color you set there, that will be the color of your continue button.

If you'd like the ability to make the Continue button a different, unique color that is not the Accent color please do feel free to submit a feature request for that here. Thanks!
