Working with Paths
A Path is a collection of any type of content around a given topic, task or idea.
Paths are used to guide people throught resources that they need to learn or complete something.
- Learning is best accomplished when organized by the individual
- Paths break learning into easily digestable chunks of information
- Paths provide endless options for customizing your learning
- Anything you want to learn is already on the internet
How does building a Path help?
- Adds meaning to the countless online resources around every topic
- Gives you an easier way to organize and visualize web resources
- Being helpful is the best way to build your reputation
Create a Path
Creating a Path is your first step before you add resources to it.
You can do this directly from your profile, or the Add+ button at the top of the site.
Give your Path a descriptive titleso it’s easy to find.
Then, add a description and you’re ready to add resources.
Use the bookmarklet
Make adding resources to paths even easier with our bookmarklet.
You can add as many links to your path, as you’d like.
We understand that sometimes you don’t have Helpified open while you’re doing research around the web.
The bookmarklet was created so you can add resources directly from any site.
Just drag the bookmarklet to your bookmarks bar, and you’re all set.
Add any resource
We understand that links aren’t the only type of media that you use when looking for answers on the web.
Add videos, images, forms, collections, audio files and even upload documents to your Paths.
Helpified supports any type of resource that you can think of.
But wait, there is more…
Keep your Paths private
If you’re working on something that you don’t necessarily want to share with the public, you can create completely private Paths. Our Private Path feature is also great for keeping drafts and unfinished paths before you launch them.
Work together with collaborators
You can work together with your collaborators to add and organize resources in your Paths.
This is great for working together on projects, or even consulting or individualized instruction.
Start on Paths to get updated
Things change around the web, and new resources come out every day.
You’re automatically updated when you start a Path.
This way, if any changes happen to the Path, you’ll be updated immediately by email.

This way, you know where you are, and you can set goal to build more knowladge.
