4 Ways You Can Use Rise Courses
With Rise, anyone can quickly create fully responsive courses. The app makes it supereasy to get important content to your learners in a way they can access wherever and whenever they need. We’ve pulled together four types of projects for inspiration—so if you’re looking for ways to start using Rise, this should give you some ideas!
Presenting Curated Content
Most companies have a lot of helpful content on important topics, but it’s scattered across different folders and websites. If this is the case for you, try organizing disjointed links, documents, webpages, and other resources into a curated Rise course. Your learners will be able to access information from one link, on any device, instead of having to search high and low to piece together everything they need.

Reaching Deskless Workers
A challenge that organizations in certain industries face is how to train employees who don't work at a desk, such as the front-line staff at a retail business. Mobile e-learning is a quick and inexpensive way to reach these individuals—no workspace required. They can access courses from anywhere, using their own devices.

Building Quick-Hit Courses to Complement Blended Learning
Companies often use a blended-learning approach to train their employees. Blended learning is a mix of instructor-led classroom training and e-learning content. It’s a great approach to training in situations where e-learning alone won’t do—for example, when learners need to actually practice a skill in person, as dental hygienists or aestheticians do. When using a blended-learning approach for training, you may not need an intensive, highly custom e-learning course. Rise is great for building quick, easy-to-digest courses learners can review on the go or reference in the classroom as training unfolds.

Distributing Performance Support
Performance support resources include job aids, policy and procedure cheat sheets, and checklists that can be accessed by an employee in a moment of need. Historically these resources have been paper-based, but today nearly everyone has access to a mobile device. Instead of pushing paper, consider using Rise to create performance support assets learners can access as needed from their phone or tablet.
