• How to Add Multiple Editors in Learning Paths

    Tracking changes in the edit history

    All editors will be able to track changes made to a path in the edit history. In the edit history, editors can see updates such as when the path is created, the title is changed, and when sections, items and editors are added or removed. It also indicates when a path is set to public or private. The edit history is refreshed when the editor opens the panel. 

    The edit history can be accessed via the learning path’s menu.

  • How to Assign Learning Paths

    This article explains how to assign learning paths in your Udemy Business account.

    Assigning a learning path

    Learning paths can be assigned to specific users and groups, just like courses. Admins can also assign learning paths to all the users in their organization’s account, by selecting “All users”. 

    You can assign a learning path on the learning paths overview page or directly within a learning path.

    assign_learning_path_option.png

    How will learners be notified of learning path assignments

    All learners who are assigned a path will receive an email notifying them about the assignment. The email will be sent from the assigner and will indicate which course has been assigned to them as well as the due date if applicable. If a learner is already self-enrolled in a path (but not yet assigned), they will receive an email when they are assigned to the path.

    • Please note that unlike course assignments, learners will not receive a reminder email, regardless of a due date being set or not.

    Assigning a learning path will automatically enroll users in that path if they are not already self-enrolled. Once assigned, the path will appear for the learner both on the Home page in the ‘Let’s Start Learning’ section for Learning paths, as well as under My Learning > Learning paths in their account.

    The learners will be displayed on the Path Insights page and in the learning path reporting after the next data refresh.

    Private path enrollments

    For private paths, the learner must click the ‘Get Started’ button either in the email they receive, or from within their account in the pages mentioned above (Home page or My Learning) in order for the path to appear on their User details page after being assigned to it.

    Learn more about making a learning path public or private.

    Due dates

    When you assign a learning path, there is an option to set a due date for the path at the bottom of the assignment modal.

    due_date.png

    Important: Once you have set a due date and assign a path, it is not possible to edit that date. In order to change a due date for a learning path assignment, you will need to unassign the learning path and then assign it once again to your users or groups with the desired due date.

  • How to Create Your Learning Path

    Designed to help drive learning at your organization, learning paths help you achieve learning outcomes by enabling you to combine high-quality Udemy Business courses with all types of resources.

    Anyone can create a custom learning path to: 

    • Help their team upskill for a major new project; 
    • Create onboarding resources for new team members;
    • Build individual career development plans.

    Combine all types of resources in a learning path: Udemy Business courses, external links (i.e. podcasts or industry articles), internal links (i.e. internal Wikis or shared documents), and even portions of courses to create a holistic learning experience to meet your goals fast.

    Getting started

    To begin creating your learning path, follow the steps below.

    Select Learning Paths at the top of the home page for your Udemy Business account.

    You can give your path a title to describe the goal of the path. You can also add a description to provide more context for your colleagues.

    Important: Path names must be unique for public paths available in your organization. If your path is public and is given the same name as an existing public path, you will be prompted to provide a unique name.

    Adding content to your learning path

    You can include all types of content in a learning path to create a holistic learning experience: Udemy courses, your custom courses, links to articles, podcasts, an internal wiki or anything else on the web. All edits and changes will auto-save.

  • How to Unassign Learning Paths

    This article explains how to unassign learning paths in your Udemy Business account.

    Unassigning a learning path

    Unassigning a learning path can be done by admins and group admins on the Path Insights page or the individual User details page in the Paths tab. The unassign option can be accessed by clicking the ellipses icon as shown below.

    unassign.png

    How learners will be notified they’ve been unassigned from a path

    When learners are unassigned from paths, they will receive an email notification letting them know about the unassignment. Currently, it is not possible to unassign users in bulk or by groups, it can only be done one by one.

    Enrollments and reporting

    Please note that unassigning a learning path does not unenroll the user from that path. Therefore, they will still appear on the Path Insights page and Learning Path reporting so long as they remain enrolled in that Path.

    Reporting impacts from a learn self-unenrolling: If a learner self-unenrolls from a path, their data will be removed from the Path Insights dashboard and Learning Path reports after the next data refresh. However, this does not remove their assignment record, and so, if you attempt to assign them the path once more, the modal will state that they are already assigned.

    Unenrolling from private paths

    For public paths, learners can re-enroll on their own and their data will once again be entered after the next data refresh.

    If the path is private, however, then it will not be possible for the learner to access the Learning Path once they unenroll. Therefore, the editor(s) of the path will need to make the path public so the learner can re-enroll. Once the learner has re-enrolled, the editor (s) can then make the path private once again.

  • Why Has a Course Been Removed From a Learning Path?

    When a course is unavailable in a Udemy Business account, it will be automatically removed from the learning path.

    There are a few instances that lead to a course being unavailable:

    • A course is retired from the Udemy Business Collection: at Udemy Business, we’re dedicated to providing our customers with access to a high quality, up-to-date content collection. Each month we curate new courses into our collection and retire low performing or outdated courses. If a course has been included in a path that is later retired from the collection, it will be removed from the path. 
    • A custom course is unpublished: if an admin or user created a custom course in their Udemy Business account and later unpublished the course, it will be removed from the path. Note: some organizations may have disabled custom courses in their account.
    • An imported course is removed from your account: if an admin imported a course and it was later removed from the account, it will be removed from the path. Note: if you need to remove an imported course from your account, please contact our support team for assistance.

    When a course becomes unavailable based on any of the instances outlined above, the path editor will be notified via email and in their Udemy Business account to update their path. The editor will have the option to replace the removed course with alternative courses in the Udemy Business collection. 

    Designed to help drive learning at an organization, learning paths help individuals and teams achieve learning outcomes, by enabling them to combine high-quality Udemy Business courses with all types of resources. Learn more here.
