Tim Slade demonstrates how to open and preview an existing project in Rise.
- [Instructor] So, before we start creating a new Rise course, I'd like to take a moment to show you how to preview a course, and give you a chance to see what a finished Rise course looks and feels like. Luckily for us, Rise comes with a sample course here, to let us do just that. To preview the sample course on employee health and wellness, let's start by clicking on it to open it up. Now that we're here in the course, you can preview it by clicking the preview button here in the top right-hand corner. Once you're in preview mode, it will show you what your Rise course will look like when your learners view it on a desktop computer or laptop.
As you can see, the top banner will display the course title, the author, and two buttons to start the course and view the course details. If you click on the details button, it will scroll down to show you the course description and a menu of each of the lessons contained within the course. You can click on any of the lesson titles to jump directly to that area of the course. In this case, let's scroll back to the top and click the start course button. So, here we are in the first lesson of our sample course on employee health and wellness, which appears to outline some basic information on improving your fitness.
Notice, as you scroll to view the various types of content contained within the lesson, that you're given visual indicators of your progress across the top here, and in the sidebar menu here. If you want to jump to a different lesson within the course, you can simply click on it here in the menu. In this case, let's jump to the second lesson. In this example, we have an interactive lesson with these markers you can click to reveal some additional content. Before we're done, I'd also like to show you how you can preview what your Rise course might look like on a tablet or smartphone.
While you're in preview mode, you can toggle in different views, using these icons here across the top. Right now, we're previewing our course in desktop view, and this is what the course will look like if your learners are viewing it on a desktop computer or laptop. If you click this icon, to switch to tablet portrait view, you'll see how the Rise course responds to the new screen size and orientation. When you do this, you'll see that some of the interface elements have changed to account for the different screen dimension. In this case, you'll see that the course menu has been collapsed out of view.
If you switch to tablet landscape view, you can see that the course menu is back as it was. And finally, you can see what the course will look like on a smartphone, both in portrait mode, and landscape mode. So, that's how you can preview a course in Rise.
