Edit a learning path in Learning Paths

Before you begin: To prevent enrollment errors, D2L advises against making changes to the courses in a learning path after learners have been enrolled and the learning path is set to Visible.

  1. On the navbar, click Learning Paths.
  2. Click the title of the existing learning path you want to edit.
  3. Do any of the following:
    • To change the learning path title or description, click the Name or Description fields.
    • To change the learning path code, under Additional Identification, add a unique Learning Path Code.

      NOTE: If you delete the learning path code, there cannot be a null value in the field. It automatically defaults back to the last saved Learning Path Code value.

    • To change the visibility of the learning path, click the Visibility toggle.
    • To change the order of courses in the learning path, drag and drop the courses in the order you want them to appear, or click the ... icon and click Move Up or Move Down.
    • To add a course to an existing learning path, click Add Activity and select the course you want to add.
    • To remove a course from the learning path, click the ... icon. Click Remove.
  4. Click Save and Close.


  • Temporarily removing then re-adding a course in a learning path can result in enrollment errors if a learner is assigned to the learning path while the course is removed - the learner will not be enrolled in the course when it is re-added.
  • Adding a course to an existing learning path does not auto-enroll the learners assigned to the learning path to that course. You must manually enroll learners into new courses added to existing learning paths.
