A learning path is a collection of learning resources that someone has created. Make your own, or re-use ones that other teachers have created, and copy these to your folder.

These collections assist teachers by bringing together interactive, assessment and other digital curriculum resources with similar themes and sub-themes drawn from the curriculum.
