Step 1: Export the course from Articulate Rise
Log in to Articulate Rise and export the course concerned by clicking the 3 dot button and choosing "Export".
Click "Export" on the right corner of the page and leave the below settings as default.
Step 2: Create a Scorm Package activity
Add a new activity and choose "Scorm package" in the activity chooser.
Step 3: Upload the Articulate Zip file
In the setting of the newly added Scorm Package, upload the exported Articulate Zip file in the "Package" setting.
Step 4: Appearance setting
In the "Appearance" setting, click "Show more" to expand all the conditions. Choose "Disabled" in "Display course structure in player" and untick "Display activity name", which will hide the navigation bar of the Articulate course.
Step 5: Hide the Scorm package but make it available
In "Common module settings", choose "Make available but not shown on the course page" in Availability. Then the Scorm package will be hidden from the students but still available in your module area.
Step 6: Copy the URL of the Articulate course
Click the Scorm Package activity and hit the Enter button to open the course.
Copy the URL of the course and save it as the hyperlink for the Label activity.
Step 7: Create a Label activity
Add a Label activity.
Step 8: Add an image
In the general setting of a newly added "Label" activity, input the description and the image you'd like to associate with the Articulate course. Click the "Show/hide advanced button" in the rich text editor to expand more options. Then click "insert or edit an image"
Click "Browse repositories" to upload the image.
Step 9: Insert the URL as the hyperlink
Click the "Show/hide advanced button" in the rich text editor to expand more options. Then click "HTML"
The HTML will be displayed. Please copy this HTML code and replace the URL of the Articulate course and image inserted:
<a target="_blank" href="URL of the Articulate course">
<p>Welcome to the induction session</p>
<p><img src="URL of the inserted image><br></p>
The HTML part is a bit tricky. By doing this, the students will just click on the image and open up the embedded course. You could either insert the URL of the Articulate course in the word description, which is much easier. Remember to choose the text before adding a hyperlink.
Now the student would just simply click on the description / the image to open up the course.
