Discussion: possible collaboration to transform learning pathways to Skill Trees

During the feedback/discussions around Learning Pathways, @skilldisplayflo has offered to help transform our learning pathways to a skill tree format.

The Skill Tree format appears to be something available from the SkillDisplay platform, where they have collaborated with other open-source projects, including TypoCMS.

I would recommend that folks interested in this discussion read the original comment linked above, and the rest of the threaded conversation, to understand the benefits.

The idea here is that the skill tree format could allow teachers to “cherry pick the skills (aka learning path tree nodes) they really need, instantly render their own curriculum for a handout and get matching learning resources that are tailored towards her use case.”

Converting Learning Pathways into Skill Sets would involve using the SkillDisplay tool to create the Skill Set and then hosting the Skill Set somewhere on the Learn.WordPress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ website.

I want to invite anyone interested in this process to read through the suggestions and share their thoughts in the comments on this post.

If this is something we as a team would like to consider, then we might want to decide on:

  • when we want to do this
  • who will be managing the process
