Want to know what a learning path is, how to use it and what it can do for your learners? Go to our dedicated article.
1. Creating a learning path
Complete the form to create your learning path:
- Name: This is the name that will be displayed on the App for your learners. You can change it later.
- Reference: this is the unique reference for your learning path, which will allow you to find it easily in the Mission Center. The reference consists only of alphanumeric characters, hyphens and underscores, without spaces. You will not be able to change it later.
- Choose your main category: Your learning path must be associated with an existing category to appear in the application. You can associate it with a second category later.
- Default language: Choose the language in which you want to create your learning path. Remember to choose a language that is part of the available languages of the courses that will be part of your learning path.
Click on "Create" to confirm the creation of your learning path.
2. Administrating your learning path
The administration of a learning path includes :
- adding a thumbnail image (750 x 545 px.)
- managing the details of the learning path: you can choose a secondary category or activate the comments
- creating the access rules: you can register your learners to the learning path, possibly adding start and end dates for access.
Note: The learning path's access rules automatically give access to the courses that make up the learning path. However, these courses are only visible within the learning path.
If a learner already has access to a course that is part of a learning path via a direct access rule, he or she will see this course in the learning path and also in its category.
3. Editing your learning path
In the content edition of your learning path you can :
- change the title of the learning pathway,
- add a description,
- add keywords to make it easier for learners to find your learning path.
Then add the training courses that will be part of your learning path. To do this, click on "New step", type in the first few letters of the course (or its reference) and select the one you want from the drop-down list. You can then confirm by clicking on "Save".
Note: you can only add courses that have been published at least once.
4. Publishing your learning path
From version 3.12.17 (May 2023), learning paths no longer have a Test version.
Once you have edited your learning path, you can publish it to make it available to all the people registered in your access rules.
Once you have published your learning path, you can return to its Edit status if you wish to modify it (add courses to your path, change the blocking/unblocking conditions).
5. Options for editing a learning path
|This icon allows you to access the administration page of the associated course. This allows you to easily access the course content edition to make any changes.
|This icon allows you to replace the course with another one: you can type the first letters of its title or reference to find it easily.
|This icon will take you to a pop-up that will lock/unlock courses under certain conditions. (See below for more information).
|This icon allows you to delete the course in question. The option is disabled if the learning path has already been published at least once.
By default, no step in your learning path is locked. However, you can decide to lock a step and unlock it under certain conditions:
- by PIN code
- subject to the successful completion of another step - the learner must then have completed all the activities scored in the step you have selected.
Once an unlocking option is selected, the lock icon is closed to inform you that this step is blocked.
Does a learner who has access to a learning path automatically have access to the courses within it?
Yes, giving access to a learning path means giving access to the courses that make up the learning path.
How do I know that a learner has access to my course via a learning path?
If a learner has been added in an access rule at the level of a learning path, the information is listed on the access rules of the course: an access rule is visible, based on the learning path in question.
If I click on "Learners Count", I will see the list of learners linked to this access rule. This access rule can only be changed in the administration of the learning path.
Can I update my learning path once it has been published?
If your learning path has already been published, you can always go back to the Edit status to replace a course with another or to add conditions for locking/unlocking steps. However, you will not be able to delete a step from the learning path.
What happens if a training course that is part of my learning path is deleted?
A training course that is part of a test or published learning path cannot be deleted. If a Mission Center manager tries to delete it from the administration page of the course in question, he will be prevented from doing so:
How do I update the content of the courses that are part of my learning path?
You can edit the content of courses that are part of your learning path. In order for the changes to be reflected in your learning path step, you will need to publish the course AND republish the learning path. This is because the learning path always uses the latest published version of the courses in it.
Can we add a certificate, badges or a ranking to the learning path?
It is not possible to add these options at the learning path level. However, you can activate these options on each of the steps that make up the learning path.
Is it possible to activate Learning Communities on a learning path?
Yes, you can add the "Comments" option to a learning path.
If a learner has access to a learning path, can they see the courses that are part of that learning path outside of that learning path?
If a learner is part of an access rule for a learning path, they will only see the courses that make up that learning path within that learning path.
If that learner is also part of a direct access rule to a course in that learning path (an access rule created in the administration page of the course in question), then they will be able to see the course in the learning path and in the category in which the course is located. In this case, the learner can take the course at any point: his or her progress will be taken into account both within the category and within the learning path.
