Text entry blank in Rise

Jan 11, 2018

I'm developing some material and the project owner has asked about the feasibility of allowing end users to input text which could be reported back to our LMS. We'd then view the entered text and use the information to direct future training efforts. I had to tell the owner this isn't possible now but that I'd ask if something like this was forthcoming. Are there any plans for adding text entry as a block/interaction/quiz option?

We're using Rise exported as xAPI communicating with an LRS (Learning Locker). One thing we added is the ability for the user to answer a question where there is no correct or incorrect answer, we just wanted the user to be able to answer. 

The answer is stored in the LRS. When the user opens the Rise course again, it retrieves the information from the LRS and displays it inside the text entry block as "Last Response: ". If you wish, you could enter something else and overwrite the previous one. 

This is not an out-of-the-box Rise feature, it's an add-on JavaScript after exporting the Rise course but it doesn't require any programming to add. Again, only works if you're using xAPI and an LRS.

That's amazing! Any way you'd be willing to share your javascript for this?

What we're trying to do is have a reflection question text-entry in a Storyline block in Rise that sends the user's answer to an LRS. We would like to have a record of all the reflections and even maybe compile them into a PDF at the end of the course for each user but are not sure how to do this.
