Bricks Create allows educators to easily develop and share interactive, multimedia Bricks suited for the evolving learning needs of their students.

Whether you're working to repurpose old material or building new content, Bricks Create allows you to spend less time learning new technology and more time creating compelling learning experiences, through it's simple and powerful authoring tool capabilities. What’s more, whether you're an educator or an instructional designer, you can leverage the power and depth of the Rx Bricks library to curate and customize existing content to meet the needs of your curriculum.

This product feels so similar to articulate that it is eerie. Bricks tool is easier to add sections to, and I like the extra features you have in your “info” tab to give metrics on the brick. Plus, we obviously have all of the additional content and metric information!

Already has built-in content – the cases, clinical connections, multiple-choice questions/explanations are particularly useful.

It’s a good tool. I am happy that I can create my own bricks. I have not seen this with other programs.

Already having thorough, clear content that is organized well with cases and questions is an amazing positive that I have not had with other programs.

It’s the best I’ve used.

The authoring features were simple and straightforward – writing was easy…I like that learning objectives are required. I also like that summaries and practice questions are required – it emphasizes a certain pedagogical approach.

These Bricks will not be findable on the Brick Exchange, but they can be shared with classmates, peers, and residency decision-makers to boost their match potential.

Empower your students to create content specific to their patient population, written in their native tongue, or about a topic they're passionate and watch their understanding grow!
