Converting lessons into sections

Hello, I've started creating my first Rise course. I've decided that it would be better to make some of my lessons sections within other lessons. While I can change the order of the lessons, I don't see a way to change the lessons into a section and move them inside another lesson. Is there a way to change a lesson into a section?

Thanks for your help.

Hi there, Cheryl.  It's always great to have one of those design epiphanies that makes your course flow that much better.  Let me see if I can clarify what is possible in terms of moving around your lessons in Rise.

  • You can add sections to your course at any time.  Simply go to add a new lesson title, and hold CTRL + Enter to make it a section title!  Then drag the relevant lessons into that section, in any order you'd like:



  • Maybe you created some blocks lessons that you'd like to reuse or combine with other blocks lessons.  Try block templates!  You can recycle one or several blocks into the same lesson, or even in other lessons.

Prebuilt lessons are standalone, so they'll always show as unique lessons in your Rise course.  I hope that helps give you some organization ideas!

You have to be just perfect on the name you just typed when you do the Shift+Enter.  If you click somewhere outside the letters it won't work.  It took me a couple tries as well.   I found it worked best if I added the lesson, typed the name, hit Enter, then clicked on the name (which highlighted it), then hold the Shift+Enter.

I have a Rise course that I have a Steps lesson in. I wanted to add the individual steps like a chapter within that Steps lesson. So that they do not show in the left navigation menu but the flow goes correctly through the steps.

Here is the link to the course. https://360.articulate.com/review/content/73d178f4-77ef-4f0c-b529-38cedadfe701/review

Hi Susan

Thanks for replying. It sounds like you don't want the course sidebar to be displayed in your course.

If you don't want the steps to appear in the navigation menu on the left hand side of the screen you can go into Settings, go to the Navigation tab, and set the Sidebar dropdown to "No Sidebar".

This will hide the sidebar/list of steps from appearing. Let me know if this resolves the issue for you.

Here's a link to a tutorial in case you need more detailed steps. Let us know if you have further questions.
