New Rise Feature - Exit Course

Many of you told us you needed a way for Rise learners to return to your LMS. So we've added a few features that make that super easy.

You can now set buttons in block lessons to leave the course, or add an ever-present link that lets learners return to an LMS.

Check out this Peek video describing the features:

I have added a button block and selected 'Exit the course' from the destination drop-down. When I export the course and import it into Moodle, clicking the button displays 'Thank you for exiting the content. You may now navigate away from this content.' in the SCORM player. If the course was configured to display in a new window that window does not close. If it is configured to display inline then this message is displayed and the user stays on the SCORM activity page.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Michelle.  I did a test in my Moodle instance and saw the same thing with my course.  Moodle is calling up the closing page that is included in your Rise course (goodbye.html).  Some LMSs will use that page to be able to process the results being sent to the LMS.  When I tested in SCORM Cloud, it did NOT invoke the closing page.  So you'll see it varies between LMSs.

Have a look at this article about the goodbye.html page for more information.  The article is for Storyline, but if you were to extract your Rise .zip file and have a look in the scormdriver folder, you'd find the goodbye.html.

Thanks again, Crystal.

I am actually not really interested in changing the messaging but rather including some javascript that will close the pop-up window the SCORM content is playing in to prevent the user from ever seeing it. Ideally, I would be able to accomplish this in Rise so I wouldn't have to have my instructional designers modify every SCORM package before uploading it to the LMS.

I am using LearnDash LMS to launch my Tin Can files that I exported out of Rise. To get Tin Can files to work w/ LearnDash, I am using the Grassblade LRS plugin with the xAPI Companion plugin. On my site, my Tin Can files work best when launching to play in a new window, so this exit button is key. However, when I exit to the parent page the progress in LearnDash doesn't update until I refresh the parent page. I am using Storyline 360 in many of my other courses and accomplish this with  the following javascript


How can I refresh the parent page when using the exit button on Rise? Or... is there another way altogether to accomplish this? Thanks!

Hi Keith,

I uploaded your course to SCORM Cloud, and you can view it here.  The exit course button functioned for me, in that at I was able to launch the course and use that button to have the course close out. Can you give it a test and if you're seeing something that isn't working as you'd expect let me know a bit more information about what's happening, the browser you're using, etc.? 

Bailey, we'd love to take a look at your course link - if you want to share it here in the community feel free or send it along to our Support Engineers here.

Is there a way to enable the back and next 'browser' buttons in LMS for a SCORM file created with Rise?

We have a course that cross links to various sections within a course for resources, we have instructions in there for them to click the back button to get back to the lesson they were at, but in LMS the browser back and next is not visible. Any suggestions? Please help. Thank you.

Hi Alyssa, 

I am exporting to LMS and I do not see the option to track or add an exit button. I have seen these options before with Rise courses... but all of those courses had quizzes. This one doesn't. That's why I'm wondering if that is the exception to the rule.
