Learning Path Management
Learning Paths allow you to have Users follow a specific path of Lessons and Exams. Learning Paths are set by User Group. The Learning Path Manager is found in User View Manager. If a Learning Path is used for a group, there are several areas where new information is shown:
- It can appear in a User’s Dashboard as My Learning Path
- Learning Path data appears in Reports and My Team
Creating a Learning Path
Select a User Group from the drop down menu and press “Create Learning Path”, then click on the new LP made.
A list of all Lessons and Exams available to that User Group will appear on the right side of the page. You can use the black arrows to hide categories from view.
Lessons and Exams that are Published will appear with a green eye beside the menu. Lessons and Exams that are not Published will have a grey eye. Both can be added to the Learning Path but unPublished Lessons and Exams won’t appear in the User’s Learning Path until they are Published.
To add a Lesson or Exam to the Learning Path click the menu under the Lesson/Exam name and select a deadline.
The Deadlines are used to provide Users with an indication of when the Lesson/Exam is expected to be complete. Lessons/Exams remain available to Users even if they did not complete them before the deadline. Users receive a reminder if they were not completed by the deadline and Admin and Managers can see which Lessons/Exams were not completed by the deadline in the User’s Team page.
Deadlines are relative to the User’s creation date. If the User is already in the system when the Learning Path is created the deadline begins immediately. If the User is added a week or a month or a year later, the deadline begins on their creation date.
For example, a Learning Path created on January 1st has a Lesson due in 10 days. For Users already in the system they have until January 11th to complete the Lesson. For a User who joins on February 1st, they have until February 11th to complete the Lesson.
Learning Paths are updated automatically – no save is needed – and they will appear for the User immediately. Click the Close option to go back to the main Learning Path Manager.
Editing a Learning Path
Editing a Learning Path works the same as creating one. Just click on the Learning Path User Group and Lessons and Exams can be added by selecting the deadline. Removing a Lesson or Exam is as easy as changing the deadline to “Remove” – this puts the Lesson/Exam back into the right column.
