What is a Learning Path?
A Learning Path allows you to build a structured curriculum of programs and supporting documents, and to measure the progress of the assigned participants.
Some common use cases for Learning Paths include: onboarding, time-sensitive training (such as annual security training), and product training.
How to Create a Learning Path
Here are the steps to creating a Learning Path:
- Click on the Paths tab in the navigation bar
- Click the “+ Create New Learning Path” button
This will display the Create New Learning Path popup where you can configure your path:
There are two Learning Path types:
- Scheduled: has a specific due date
- Self-paced: no due date
Modules in a Learning Path
Learning Paths contain the following 5 modules:
Start Here – contains the title, intro video, goals, category, Host, Participants list and also the Publishing features that are only visible to Coaches/Publishers/Hosts (Publish, Clone, Hidden Activities, Email Team, Delete)
Schedule – this module is where you add/manage the type, weeks, programs, supporting documents, and reminders (Participants see this tab as view-only, they cannot add/manage programs, files or users)
Milestones – this module tracks the progress of all Participants’ completion within the learning path by the category of the content
Reports – this module allows Hosts/Coaches to view and export a report on the progress of the Participants in the path
Admin – this module is only available to Coaches/Hosts, and allows them to manually give completion credit to Participants for some or all programs in the Path
- Learning Paths do not have Open capability, users must be assigned to the path in order to participate
- Homepage Components and Sorting Logic applies to all path types
- We recommend using Scheduled (due date) for short-term paths with a specific end date (ex: annual security training), and Self-paced for long-term paths that will have Participants continually added over time (ex: onboarding and product training)
- Learning Paths now support Hidden Activities
