Creating a Learning Path

There are currently two ways to create a learning path: 

  • From scratch
  • From an existing folder

Create from scratch

Create a learning path from scratch by clicking 'Learning path' on the Add page of a course.

This approach is suitable if already have the content you need in the course, the library or on your computer.

When creating a new learning path, there will by default be 3 steps, but steps can be added and removed.

To each step, a single resource can be added.

Create from folder

This approach is best suitable if you already collected content in a folder, or you have yet to create the content that you want to include in the learning path. You can first create all resources you need in a single folder, and then turn it into a learning path.

This can be done by choosing 'Make learning path' under the [...] button when the folder is opened. 

For each resource in this folder a step will be created. There resources will be in the same order as they were in the folder, but you can drag and drop to reorder.

The option 'Make learning path' is disabled when:

  • the folder contains content that cannot be copied (e.g. Hangman game)
  • there is content that already has results.

Remove the results of a student on e.g. a test will 'free up' the action again.

The option will not be available if:

  • if the folder is a topic folder (created via the planner)
  • if the folder is the root folder

Note: it is always possible to change a learning path back to a regular folder.

This will not affect the results students might have on the activities on the path.

Once the learning path is created, you can start adding resources to the steps use the learning path builder.
