What is a Learning Path?

Learning Paths are essentially a lesson plan for users that you design Create a customized Learning Path to guide your learners through a curated set of content.


Why would I use this feature?

Instead of assigning tons of courses to multiple users manually, you can assign one learning path to a preferred group, or set of individual users.


It’s also a way to organize courses in sequential order to increase course completion. Once your Learning Path is set up, you can enable custom communications as a drip campaign to further bolster engagement with the linked content.

Here you can set up notifications for your learners. Using these notifications, we give you the ability to contact your learners whenever they are enrolled in this learning path or when they complete it. Additionally, you can schedule the notification to happen at a later time and customize the message.
