The Learning Path feature is a great way to set the learners' pace during the learning process. Learning Path is a way to create a sequence of steps inside a course or between courses. It allows you to organize the structure of the course easily and quickly.
To start creating a learning path, first, let's take a look at the way you can organize a course. Visit your course's dashboard and click on the 'Course Rules' option (1).
From your Course Rules section, you can either choose to let your users take the course's units the way they want to or you can force a serial traversal of units (2) so that your users complete each unit in the order you have set them to be. This way users can take your material gradually, slowly gaining access to the content of your course.
You can also define course completion conditions (3). These rules allow you to define the way a course is completed. You can add new rules or edit/delete an already defined rule by the corresponding operations column.
Adding a new rule allows you to define the following options:
- Completed all tests
- Completed a fraction of units
- Completed a specific unit
Moreover, you may define the condition in relation to the other completion conditions of the course choosing an AND/OR logical correlation.
In this way, user's will be able to take this course if, and only if, they have already completed the courses that this course depends on.
Enrich the learning path further by creating Curricula that contain mandatory or optional courses. Find out more about this in our article.
Finally, you may use the skills assigned to your courses to set up a learning path. Assigning a skill to a course as Required means that the users may only get the course if they have the required skill. If there is another course in the system that offers this skill, the users should take that course at first, complete it and gain the skill. As soon as they have the skill required for the other course, they will be able to take it. Visit this article to find out more about how you can assign skills to your courses.
