2. Continue Block to Prevent Skipping

One of the important aspects to be considered by courseware developers while creating online compliance training is ensuring learners can’t skip any content. This can be done with just a few clicks using the Continue Block feature. It’s one of the block types that Rise offers. It restricts learners from going forward until they’ve gone through all of the required content on the slides.

To add a Continue block:

  • Open a block lesson in Rise
  • Click the ‘+’ icon
  • Select the ‘Divider’ option from the block library

You can use the ‘Continue’ block in various ways, based on the ‘Completion Type’ you choose.

  1. If you choose ‘None’, the Continue button is visible to learners at all times. They can click it anytime to move to the next block.
  2. If you choose ‘Complete Block Directly Above’, the Continue button is disabled until learners finish the block directly above the Continue block.
  3. If you choose ‘Complete All Blocks Above’, the Continue button is disabled until learners complete all the blocks above the Continue block.

3. Ensure Completion with a Storyline Block

You can also leverage a Storyline block to track the completion of a course developed using Rise, through your Learning Management System (LMS). Completion can be tracked based on a trigger, quiz result, or the number of slides seen in the Storyline block.

The limitations in Rise can be overcome with Storyline. You can develop templates in Storyline and integrate the same into Rise. This will help you enjoy the best of both tools to develop effective compliance courses. With Storyline 360, you can build custom interactions in responsive courses quickly, and integrate them into Rise.

4. Use Restricted Navigation

When you create a compliance course using Rise, you can consider using the restricted navigation feature, in combination with the Continue block. This feature ensures employees go through all the required information. For instance, they can’t go ahead to the final lesson without viewing each lesson before it. You can adjust navigation by changing the navigation mode from ‘Free’ to ‘Restricted’.

 In addition, you can impose restricted navigation to videos so that learners don’t skip ahead through video content using the seek bar. To restrict video navigation, go to the Settings tab for the video in question and disable ‘Allow forward seeking’.Imposing Restricted Navigation in Articulate Rise

5. Set a Passing Score for Assessments

Assessment is a key aspect of compliance courses. You need to ensure that your learners understand the quiz questions and select the right answers. There are two options in Quiz settings to ensure this:

  Option 1:  Through this option, you can ensure that your learners score 100% in the final quiz, by giving them unlimited attempts. This arrangement makes learners retake the quiz until they get all the questions right. When learners score 100% in the quiz after repeated attempts, you can be rest assured of their understanding of the concepts shared in the course.  To change the Passing Score, open quiz lesson, click ‘Settings’, and adjust the benchmark.Change Passing Score

  Option 2:  Another way to ensure that your leaners don’t navigate as per their convenience is to have a minimum passing score to proceed to the next lesson. To enable this, open your quiz lesson, click the Settings option, and enable the “Require Passing Score to Continue” button. When it’s enabled, your learners should score the minimum passing marks defined to go to the next lesson in the compliance course.Check Passing Score
