To build your content, select block types and, for courses, add quizzes.  


With Rise 360 content, you stack blocks to create unique learning experiences.

Use blocks to create custom deliverables. Blocks are components you stack to create unique content that looks gorgeous on every device, in every orientation.

  1. Add blocks to content from the blocks shortcut bar. If you don’t see the block you want to add, click All Blocks and choose block types from the library that appears in the sidebar. As you add content, the blocks shortcut bar drops below the last block in the lesson. You can also use the insert block icon that appears above or between existing blocks to open the block library. 

    Build media-rich learning experiences with image, gallery, and multimedia blocks.

    Create lean-forward learning moments with interactive accordion, tabs, flashcard, and button blocks. Add text, statement, quote, and list blocks to tell a story or call out important information. And separate your lesson into meaningful sections with divider blocks.
  2. Add your own text and media to each block. You can edit text in the main window or in the sidebar. To swap out media, use the sidebar.
  3. To reveal the sidebar, just hover over a block and click the Edit button that appears in its upper left corner.
  4. And if you change your mind about the block type you selected, use the drop-down list in the upper left corner of the block to switch to a different block type from the same category without having to re-enter your content.
  5. Customize a block’s settings—such as padding and background color—by clicking the design icon on the upper right corner of the block.
  6. Rearrange blocks by hovering over them and clicking the up and down arrows that appear in the upper right corner.
  7. Duplicate or delete blocks by hovering over them and clicking the appropriate icon in the upper right corner. Recover deleted blocks by clicking the Undo notification that appears briefly in the lower-left hand corner.

Combine blocks in different ways to create completely unique content—the possibilities are endless. While each block is stunningly pre-styled, you can easily create your own look by swapping in content, switching fonts, and selecting an accent color.
