How to Obtain a Copy and Make Edits to the Course

Articulate Rise Overview

Starting a Conversation About Mental Health was developed in an e-learning program called Articulate Rise (or Articulate 360). It is a web-based application e-learning authoring tool that enables developers and instructional designers to quickly create custom, interactive courses—no coding experience needed. Some of the benefits of using Articulate Rise are:

  • It adapts to all devices (phone, tablet, laptop, and desktop computers) and screen orientations (portrait, landscape).
  • It has lots of interactivity, including timelines, flashcards, carousels, quizzes, and scenarios.
  • It is easy to edit content on Articulate Rise and then import into an LMS.
  • It has the ability to output as SCORM (see information below about SCORM) to track learners’ progress and completion, output as HTML5 or PDF.
  • It has the ability to export translatable files to convert courses into different languages.
  • It allows you to include videos and other multimedia.

Note: All edits to the Starting a Conversation About Mental Health course content must be done in Articulate Rise before exporting and uploading the course to an LMS.

SCORM Overview

SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model. It’s a collection of online training materials that is put together to an agreed standard for learning objects. The agreed standard tells programmers how to write their code so that it can “play well” with various learning management systems (such as D2L Brightspace, Moodle, Canvas, Blackboard). The SCORM package can track learners’ progress and completion. Please note that edits cannot be made once the course content has been exported to SCORM.
