Creating a knowledge path has two basic steps. First, you give the path a name and define its properties on the Path Properties page. Then, you add activities and content to the path to create the series of subjects and assessments through which a user progresses.
A knowledge path has these properties:
Name: The name can be any alphanumeric string up to 255 characters in length. It is this name that appears in various knowledge path enrollment pages, and the name users see on the Knowledge Paths page in the Knowledge Center.
Path Categories: Knowledge Paths available to users on the Knowledge Paths page are listed by category. By default, knowledge paths are placed in the General category. While it is not required to categorize knowledge paths, it can help end users navigate a long list of paths in the Knowledge Center. This option lists all path categories available; select one to add the knowledge path to a category. If you do not have categories created or do not select one from those available, you can categorize the knowledge path later.
Active: When enabled, it means that the knowledge path is currently available in the Knowledge Center, provided users are already enrolled in it or can self-enroll. When this option is disabled, users cannot access the knowledge path.
User can Self-Enroll: For the Self enroll option to be available for a knowledge path, it must be enabled at the workgroup level. Otherwise, it is not available for selection at the knowledge path level. When the Self enroll option is enabled, users can enroll in a knowledge path that has not been directly assigned to them by a Manager. The knowledge path is available to users on the Enrollment page in the Knowledge Center, and users have the option to enroll in the path and withdraw from it later as desired. When the knowledge path has been assigned to a user, the knowledge path appears on the Knowledge Paths page in the Knowledge Center. Users cannot withdraw from knowledge paths in which they did not self-enroll.

Display the Knowledge Path Management page.
Click Create Path.
Enter a name for the path.
