Learning Paths

What are they? What are the Benefits? Where can I find them?

The Oracle Learning Library (OLL) is an online resource for content about Oracle products. You can access videos, tutorials, articles, demos, step-by-step instructions, and self-paced interactive learning modules all written by Oracle developers and trusted community members. Learning paths are available for EPM Cloud and Oracle Analytics Cloud. They typically teach a use case or an end-to-end example. They sequence information to answer a question or perform a task and some introduce concepts and getting started information.

Note: For EPM Cloud customers, refer to the presentation given by Kathy Day, Angela Vermeer and Dave Roberts about EPM Cloud Learning Paths.

Learning paths can include:

  • Documentation
  • Videos
  • Oracle By Examples (OBE)
  • Zip files
  • Sample data
  • Quizzes


Learning Path Benefits:

The documentation contains details and  procedures for all the features for a business  process.The videos contain feature overviews and  procedures for specific tasks. Learning Paths tie together all the task  procedures to provide a step-by-step guide to accomplish a larger flow or set of  procedures. They also include links to pertinent documentation and videos for each task.

Why are learning paths valuable?

Learning paths are valuable because they offer:

  • Free training
  • Industry standard
  • Combine learning styles - For example, learners can read documentation topics, work through hands-on  tutorials, use zip files with sample data, and watch video demos.
  • Interactive
    • Step-by-step instructions to perform a task
    • Quizzes to assess learning
  • Allow learners to progress at their own pace and track their progress


Where are learning paths located?

Learning paths can be found in the following locations - refer to screenshots below for examples.

  • Oracle Learning Library.- Search the library for a topic OR click on "View Learning Paths". Apply filters to narrow your search.


What environments are required to complete a learning path?

  • If the learning path consists of a use case or an end-to-end example, you will  need an environment with a sample application installed, and you may need to upload a snapshot with data.
  • If the learning path sequences documentation and videos, you do not need an  environment.
