Redesigned to make track navigation simpler, to provide an optional linear navigation path, and to make completion status more readily visible, The Essentials page displays 5 critical path components of a given Leadership Advantage track topic. The outer circle around each main icon displays visual progress tracking to the learner. As the learner completes or views content, the circle will fill partially with color, and the degree of ‘color fill’ will reflect the percent of resources accessed/completed within a given track. Approximate duration to complete each area, in hours and minutes, is also displayed below each item. The five critical path components highlighted by icons include:
Do you Need It? offers a series of self-reflection questions to help learners determine their knowledge of the topic area and guide their decision on whether to dive deep or go broad in terms of time spent in the track.
The Core Message (formerly Fast Track) provides the learner with a broad view of the track, in a short, comprehensive overview that is designed to be completed in 20 minutes or less.
Explore in Depth (formerly Full Track) is the ‘deep dive’ view of the track content, designed to be completed in approximately 2 hours, and provides the most comprehensive coverage of the topic.
