Activities + Learning Paths

SCORM elearning courses, instructor-led, assessments, surveys and more...

Thinking Cap supports many distinct learning activities. We also have a system of equivalencies to track when different activities can substitute for one another in your curriculum. If you use only one type of activity, you won’t be overwhelmed by seeing activities you don’t need. If you need to grow beyond one activity, we can easily give you what you need when you need it.

Elearning courses

Thinking Cap is a SCORM 1.2 and 2004 Certified learning management system (LMS). Your SCORM packages will work as you expect them to in Thinking Cap, no matter which authoring tool you use. If you don’t have a SCORM package, Thinking Cap can take your PDF, video, and PowerPoint files and automatically convert them into courses for you.

You can create assessments in any tool and bring them in as SCORM packages. Or, if you prefer, you can create stand-alone tests and quizzes with choice and matching questions using Thinking Cap’s internal editor. You can also save questions to our question bank for reuse and have question groups that are randomized and weighted. You can also create assessments that you can add onto the end of any other learning or comprehension activity, which allows you to test learners after an ILT session.

Learning paths

Learning paths organize your different learning activities into a curriculum that supports your larger learning goals. This helps your learners also see a broader context about how time invested in learning benefits them and your organization. Learning paths map the best sequence of learning activities to provide the best learning in the shortest possible time. The best learning paths combine structured learning activities with real work experiences.

Discover hidden pools of competency

Thinking Cap reports on learners who are close to achieving a learning path that they are not enrolled in. This helps you find hidden skills and competencies that can give learners additional learning credits and opportunities for changing or expanding the scope of their role in your organization.

Design paths that are flexible and accommodate your learners

Learning paths provide many flexible options to define which learnings are required and which are optional. You can use equivalencies to define multiple learning activities that will fulfill the learning requirements.

Build Your learning paths with an easy drag-and-drop tool

Our easy-to-use editor lets you draw from your entire library to build paths quickly and with as many layers and options as you want. Once you have your paths, you can use the editor to make any changes just as easily.

Track progress and manage learners as they make their way along the path

Settings to allow for learners to be issued either the maximum credits or a smaller amount of credits.

Customized display

Layout the learning path activities in a custom format.

Sequential orders

Require learners to complete the activities, or group of activities, in order.

Custom types

Looking for something more? Create your own types of activities based on the types above, with your own twist. Since Thinking Cap supports a full set of Pre-Sets for the over 40 discreate settings for a given Activity sometimes it makes sense to segment your Types more granularly. It's all about making the administrative load lighter. So instead of having just ILTs you might want to create Face-to-Face and Webinar as different "types". Do you use Learning Paths as "Curriculum Maps" in one place an as "Fields of Interest" in another? Go ahead; Thinking Cap enables you to do things your way.
