Please note that you might find it easier to create a Pathway using the Pathway Builder. The Pathway Builder guide also includes a video for you to watch if you prefer.
Navigate to Content Manager (see access Content Manager if you're unsure how to do this).
Click on the Create tab.
Click on the Pathway button.
Within the popup window, give the Pathway a name and click on Create Pathway.
You will be taken to the Common Tasks area for your new Pathway where you can choose to Add Activities, Add Users, Set reminder emails or Go to details.
We'll add some Activities to the Pathway first.
Click on the Add activities link (you can also click on the Activities tab on the left if you prefer).
You will be taken to the Activities area. Click on the Add Activities button.
You will be presented with a menu where you can browse/search for existing activities or create new ones.
We will add existing Activities in this guide.
Find existing Activities by searching
If you choose to search, type the name of the Activity into the box and click on the magnifying glass or press enter on your keyboard.
You will be taken to a search results page that will display all Activities with the keyword you searched for - in the below example, 'lending'.
Find existing Activities by browsing
If you would like to browse for Activities instead of searching, click on the Browse link after you have clicked on the Add Activities button.
You will be taken to a screen that will display all of the Activities that you have access to.
You can use the library filters on the left-hand side to narrow the results.
Alternatively, you can use the Search Activities box on the left.
Add existing Activities
Once you have located the Activities you'd like to add, tick the box next to the Activity (or Activities, depending on which method you used to find them).
Note: it is possible to add other Pathways into your new Pathway, creating nested Pathways. The maximum number of nested Pathways levels is 6.
Click on the Add and Save button at the top of the list.
You will be returned to the Activities area for the Pathway. If you need to find another Activity, you can click on the Add Activities button again.
Add Diagnostic Tools (optional)
Now that you have added the Activities to the Pathway, you can click on the Add Diagnostic Tools button to add a Diagnostic and/or Pathway Assessment if you wish.
Please see the following guides if you need help with Assessments:
Clicking on the button will present you with a popup where you can choose which option you need.
Click on Save to add the diagnostic tool(s).
Add additional details to the Pathway
Click on the Details tab on the left-hand side.
You will now be able to add a Code, Description and Objectives for your Pathway.
We would recommend that you do add a Description to your Pathway so that Users know what it is about if they view it in Find Learning or their My Activities area.
Underneath the main boxes, you also have the option to set the Display Options for your Pathway.
Please see the add a Theme to a Pathway guide if you need help deciding on which option to use.
Don't forget to click on the Save Changes button at the bottom of the screen when you have made your changes.
Now that your Pathway is complete, you can register specific Users, register Users via a Registration Rule, set Email Reminders and/or publish it to a Catalogue, as you would do for any other Activity.
