February 2022 – Rise 360 Real Content Templates
The Rise 360 Real Content Templates update aims to take away some of the time-consuming elements of course creation. It gives you access to thousands of customisable content templates, all focused on topics that are relevant to business across the world.

Firstly, pre-built lessons. These on-demand videos and training courses cover topics of interest to every employee, which can then be easily customised and uploaded to your learning management system.
