Using Rise for Show Me- Try Me (or any Simulations)?

Jul 13, 2017


I'm exploring whether Rise could be used to develop Show Me-Try Me style systems training, or something close to that.  Does anyone here have experience or advice on how to use Rise in this way?

Interesting question, Joe.

While Rise doesn't have a built-in screencasting tool, I think there are lots of ways you can include screencasts and simulations in Rise.

Peek and Preso: Rise supports embedded video so you can record training videos and screencasts that can be added to your Rise courses.

Labeled Graphic lesson: Rise's labeled graphic lesson is a great way to create interactive screenshots in Rise courses. Using screenshots from a software tool, you can add interactive markers that contain text, audio, and video. 

Process lesson: The process lesson is ideal for walking users through a series of steps to show them how to do something in a software tool.

Sorting Activity: Good way to let users practice identifying which tool or feature will allow them to accomplish a specific task in a tool.

I'll build a quick demo  to show how each of these ideas could work in a Rise course.

Looking forward to this demo David.

I'm seriously considering subscribing to 360 as I'll start developing a big software training program soon. Rather than using the classic Storyline simulation/interaction features, I'd like to make a Rise-based training site, so these ideas are rather relevant to what I'll need to do.

We have a team license for 360 and have created a few training items with Rise. I am trying to use the sorting activity to have the user drag/drop items into one of two categories. However, there seems to be a very limited number of characters available on each item - 80. I did not see any way to expand the size of the item or edit it in any way other than add more items.

So I develop using experiential learning cycles and have made the switch over to rise. Try me elements pose a problem for now if not involving a simulation of some sort. Show me elements have in most cases always been videos as I primarily develop training related to SOP compliance. I would love the ability to use 360 video though :)
