This article will define and describe the general usage and setup of the Learning Path folder-type.

A Learning Path is a type of Catalog Folder and added to the Catalog in a manner similar to any other type of Catalog Folder.

For help documentation related to adding any type of Folder to the Catalog, please refer to; Adding and Editing Folders, otherwise the following information describes some general uses of a Learning Path Folder. 

Purpose behind a Learning Path

A Learning Path is a type of hierarchical Catalog Folder which can be populated with sub-folder types of Courses. 

Learning Path folders are used to organize and assign any associated Courses

A Learning Path folder-type will be scored based on any scores earned by any Child Folders.

Learning Path folder-type

Learner Presentation: Drill Down

Scoring Process: Roll Up

Allowed Child Types: CCourse

Allowed Parent Types: Folders, Organizational Folders

Important Tips: 

  • The settings above are system defaults but can be modified by an LMS Admin with appropriate permissions. 

  • It is considered a best practice to NOT modify existing folder-types, but instead create a new folder-type if necessary.

  • The Accord LMS will prevent LMS Admins from creating any folder-type which are not allowed as Child Folders in any selected Parent Folder.

Learning Path Details (settings) 

Generally, the informational Detail settings which may be set or entered for the various folder-types are very similar.
