Rise 360: How to Use Text Blocks

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

You can add and edit text throughout Rise 360. However, text blocks offer prebuilt paragraph and header options as well as multi-column and table formats. 

Here’s how they work.

  1. Insert a Text Block
  2. Modify the Text Block
  3. Accessibility

Step 1: Insert a Text Block

  1. Open a Rise 360 course, then edit an existing lesson or create a new one.
  2. Select All Blocks from the blocks shortcut bar. Or, click the insert block icon (+) that appears when you mouse over a boundary between blocks.
  3. When the sidebar appears, choose the Text category in the block library, then select the block you want. 

Step 2: Modify the Text Block 

Use the format menu to modify how your content looks on the screen. In addition to adjusting block padding, you can expand or constrain the width of your text with content width and change how much space is after your heading with heading padding.

For column blocks, you can select the number of columns to display and if you'd like images at the top of each column. 

Table block formatting provides three preset content width and cell padding options. 


Text blocks are accessible. Conduct testing with keyboard navigation and screen readers to ensure accessibility. For further guidance on creating accessible content, refer to our accessibility design tips below:
