Creating a learning path to guide your learners' steps to success
What if you need to present a really huge bulk of information to your learners on one topic? Then A learning path is the best solution for you!
A learning path is a sequence of courses that allows a learner to master a topic in small steps. Such an approach is more effective when a learner needs to absorb a lot of content on a certain topic. The steps of a learning path may be of a various nature: these can be courses that provide teaching material on a specific field of knowledge, quizzes a learner should complete, exam a learner should pass etc.
Under the Learning paths menu item, you can group existing courses into a learning path. You can easily change the order of courses by dragging and dropping them.
The courses are shown to a learner in the order they are arranged in the learning path. But learners can complete the courses in any order they like.
As this feature is under development, for now it is possible to publish the learning path only as HTML. All courses grouped into the learning path will be packaged and downloaded as the HTML package and can be run offline on your computer or published to your web server or cloud storage.
Adding documents to a learning path
You can also add PowerPoints, PDFs and Word documents to a learning path. In order to do this, upload the necessary file to your Google Drive, Publish it to the Internet and get the embed code. Then open a learning path, click on Add courses button, choose a document type and paste the embed code into the appropriate field.
Learning paths are being constantly improved. In the near future the following options will be available:
- setting due dates for separate courses inside a learning path
- setting conditions that regulate the accessibility of courses inside a learning path
Thus, learning paths will soon become even more convenient and easy to use!
Does learners' progress in separate courses contribute to the overall progress in the learning path?
