Who’s using Pathway?

What do people say about Pathway?

The mobile companion is a great addition – I’ve used it many times before meetings with clients and it’s been incredibly useful.

Really liked the filter function – it was great being able to chose which areas to cover in more details and which I could have a quick update on.

The way learning resources are presented is so much more intuitive than our enterprise LMS. The act Pathway has been straightforward to integrate into our existing framework means we haven’t had to compromise on learner experience.

Being able to integrate discussions, see presence of learners online really brings programmes to life – it’s help us make social learning a real part of our programmes.

The Learning Path concept

Pathway Cloud LMS from WillowDNA is built around the concept of a Learning Path; a series of activities that learners follow in order to learn a subject. A Learning Path can be complex or simple and blends formal learning materials with social learning activity. It can also compliment and be a part of other learning activities such as face-to-face events or web events. Pathway Cloud LMS is designed to support three learning channels:

Classroom:

Most of the learning occurs in the classroom but the learning is supported online

Blended:

Online and face-to-face activities are blended to create a complete programme

Online:

The learning happens completely online

Two types of Learning Path

Pathway Cloud LMS supports ‘synchronous’ or ‘asynchronous’ Learning Paths. A synchronous Learning Path is one that learners follow as cohorts and incorporates time-based activities, for example a webinar or a workshop. An asynchronous Learning Path is followed at an individual’s own pace; there are no time-based activities but it is possible to interact with other learners or an e-tutor.

Key capabilities:

  • Cloud ‘as a service’
  • Formal and informal learning support
  • Multi language support
  • Integration
  • Reporting and tracking
  • Panopto Integration for video creation and hosting
  • Assessor capability
