Every knowledge path requires a single root activity, which is created automatically when the knowledge path is created. For a single-activity knowledge path, this is the only activity necessary, although in this case you must remember to link content to the activity. You can add sub-activities to the root activity and to other activities to create a curriculum or organizational knowledge path.
Activity properties determine the presentation of subjects and assessments in the knowledge path. This includes the mode of play for a subject, feedback on assessments, and prerequisites.
The activity name can be any alphanumeric string up to 80 characters in length. It is the name that appears in Knowledge Center. The name of the activity can be, but is not required to be, the same as the name of the title or content object being used for the subject in the activity. By default, the root activity name is the same as the knowledge path name; however, you can change this name as desired.
When you add an activity, it is inserted as the last child of the selected activity. If you want it to be at the same level as an existing activity, you must select the parent activity one level above and add it. You cannot add an activity at the level of the root activity; there can only be a single root activity.
Activities and Knowledge Path Types
For a single-activity knowledge path, the root activity is the only activity in the knowledge path and its properties are set for the content object used in the path. You link the content to the root activity.
For a curriculum knowledge path, the root activity represents the starting point for the knowledge path, to which you can add dependent activities. For example, in an Excel knowledge path, the root activity could be Introduction to Excel and the rest of the path could consist of two sub-activities for the intermediate and advanced levels.
For an organizational knowledge path, the root activity uses the default settings (Organization Only) and does not have content linked to it. To the root activity, you can add sub-activities, all at the same level, that are not dependent on one another. For example, in an Office Basics knowledge path, the root activity would be named Office Basics and to that activity, you could add four sub-activities representing the introductory levels of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access.
