Creating and Editing Competencies

A competency defines a specific group of courses that a student needs to take. To complete a competency, a student must complete all of the courses contained in the competency. To complete a learning path, a student needs to complete all of the competencies.


1.     First, make sure you are on the editing page for a learning path. (You are automatically taken here when you create a new learning path, or you can access it by navigating to the learning path page under the ‘Settings’ menu of the sidebar, and clicking the ‘View’ button next to the learning path you want to edit.)  


2.     Under the ‘Competencies’ tab, you can add new competencies to the learning path.

7.     Under the ‘courses’ tab, you can add courses to the competency. These will be the courses a student must complete to finish the competency. Note that students will be automatically enrolled in the courses you add if they are assigned to this competency.




8.     To add courses, click ‘Add courses’.




9.     Your course list will appear. Clicking ‘Add’ next to a course’s name will add the course to the competency.
