Learning Path option allows creating educational courses consisting of several steps that users need to take in the specified order.

 

Users can proceed to the next step only if they have passed the previous quiz. Learning Path also allows viewing the short description for all steps.

 

arrow_upTIPS & TRICKS
All quizzes have the description option. In contrast to the articles. So the articles will be available for users to read all the time unless  they do the following: insert the Read More red line in it. So everything above this line will be visible all the time and play a role of description, everything below will open only when the user gets to this step.

 

Learning paths can include quizzes and Joomla articles from your web site. You can add certificates to the last quiz, so the user will be able to download it after successful completion.

 

Learning paths can only be accessed by authorized users.
