The Infopedia Media group within Microsoft started developing a new product in 2014 called Learning Paths. Learning paths are groups of content, whether videos, courses, documents, decks, etc., that are grouped together, assigned points, and a chronology to enable a user to learn about a specific topic. They have grown to be very successful programs. Artifact designed the first learning path, the basic learning path web templates, and every custom learning path since.
The DX Next is an example of a custom learning path. This group focuses on developers’ experience. We created a number of sub-learning paths within a large umbrella to cover a 8 different topics. We proposed two themes, one a scene on a cliff, the other a space theme and the space theme was chosen.
