Edit a Path

  • Updated

Group Administrators and Platform Administrators can edit any Path.

Authors can edit Paths they have created or Co-authored.

 


Edit the title, image, description, estimated duration or skills of a Path

  1. At the top of the page, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. In the list of Paths, in the rightmost column, click the Edit button (pencil icon)
  4. Click on a field

The minimum recommended size for image is 150 x 150 pixels.

 


Change the Path progression type (linear or non-linear)

A Linear Path requires Learners to follow the steps in the order defined in the Steps section (top to bottom).

A non-linear path allows Learners to complete the steps in any order they choose.

  1. At the top of the page, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. In the list of Paths, in the rightmost column, click the Edit button (pencil icon)
  4. In the Progression section, select Linear or Non-linear

 


Add a Co-author to a Path

You can add a Co-author to a Path if the user has the Administrator or Author role.

Users added as Co-authors will receive an email notification.

  1. At the top of the page, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. In the list of Paths, in the rightmost column, click the Edit button (pencil icon)
  4. Under the title "Co-author", click on the "+" button
  5. Select one or more Co-author(s)
  6. At the bottom right, click CONFIRM

 


Add, edit or delete steps in a Path

You can edit the steps of a Path at any time. Learners who have already earned the Path keep it as completed in their individual statistics, even if a step is added or deleted.

Add a step

You can add a step to a published Path. Learners who earned the Path before the addition of the new step keep it displayed in their profile (but they won’t have 100% progress anymore; they can play the new step to achieve 100% again).

  1. At the top of the page, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. In the list of Paths, in the rightmost column, click the Edit button (pencil icon)
  4. In the Steps section, click on the "+" button to add a Course, a Program template, or a Path
  5. Select one or several items
  6. On the bottom right, click SAVE

You can add up to 50 steps.

Mark a step as optional

Marking a step as optional allows the enrolled user to earn the Path, even if that step was not completed.

  1. At the top of the page, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. In the list of Paths, in the rightmost column, click the Edit button (pencil icon)
  4. In the list of steps, in the column Optional, check the box

Reorder steps

  1. At the top of the page, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. In the list of Paths, in the rightmost column, click the Edit button (pencil icon)
  4. In the Steps section, on the left of a step name, click and hold the click on a step, then drag and drop the step

If you reorder the steps of a linear Path, Learners can still play the steps that they started (even if they now also have to complete steps before them).

Add or edit a step's relative due date

You can add a Relative Due Date to each Step, to encourage learners to complete the step on time and help them stay organized. These dates are soft deadlines; Learners can play the step after the due date. 

The deadline is computed from the date of the Learner's enrollment (not the previous step’s relative due date).

  1. At the top of the page, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. In the list of Paths, in the rightmost column, click the Edit button (pencil icon)
  4. In the list of steps, in the column Relative due date, click the dropdown menu and select Month(s), Week(s) or Day(s)
  5. In the field on the right, select the number of months, weeks or days
  6. On the bottom right, click SAVE

Relative due dates are displayed in the dashboard of Paths statistics (which allows you to identify Learners who fell behind).

Delete a step

You can delete a Step from a published Path. Learners who have completed this step keep their statistics on the stand-alone deleted item.

  1. At the top of the page, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS
  3. In the list of Paths, in the rightmost column, click the Edit button (pencil icon)
  4. In the Steps section, to the right of a step name, click Delete (trash can icon)
