Skip the Into Page > Immediately Start Course

Dec 06, 2017

We are working with a large corporation that hosts the rise modules on their internal LMS system. 

Here is an example of one of the assets we created.

With some hacks we have been able to add "share this" functionality to the site. We want our users to share what they have learned with the outside world. Part of this would be creating "Teasers" of the rise modules that would sit on the open web, for anybody to view. These teasers would then direct them to the portal where they can signup and pay for the course etc.

Here is an example of our "teaser"

I want to use the mapping tool option as an item someone could share. HOWEVER. I don't think in this use case we need to have them "Continue" or "Start Course" - I really just want them to come directly to the first lesson. 

So that it's the first thing they view. Is something like that possible, has anybody come across a hack that would accomplish this?

Any possibility that the cover page could at least be optional for the microlearning template in Rise? If not, just out of curiosity, can Articulate give an answer as to why you don't want this feature? Seeing as it has been requested hundreds of times over the past 5+ years, I'd think it's one of the most requested features.

Due to the lack of explanation I’m wildly assuming Articulate doesn’t want Rise to become a simple “SCORM wrapper” for videos or other single block items. I’m not sure why though. My more wild speculation is that they would make this option available but there is some patent out there held for “very useful web based SCORM wrapping tool” that they don’t want to violate.

Hi all!

Good news! We've just released a new feature that allows you to turn off the cover page when you publish for LMS to improve compatibility, streamline training, and get learners into content faster. Give it a try, and let us know if you have any questions about it!

Note: You can't hide the cover page for training created from Next Big Idea Club content templates.

Thanks for the great news! This opens up a lot of options for us since we often publish single items in our LMS and a Cover Page was overkill.

I think putting it on the Publish LMS page works for me as well though it is slightly puzzling choice. I guess if someone needs it for some reason when not publishing to LMS, they could just pick that publish option even if they don't need the extra SCORM files...
