Learning path settings
The Learning path section can be used to enable the auto-launch of learning paths and the style (or graphical theme) for the course.

The auto-launch feature allows the teacher to select one specific learning path to auto-start when the user enters the course homepage. In order to use this feature, you'll need to enable the option in the course settings (remembering to save the changes) then go to the learning paths list and click on the rocket icon which represents the auto-launch of one of the learning paths:

Only one learning path can be set as auto-launch at a time, and it will start as soon as the learner enters the course homepage. Other learning paths show a gray rocket icon. To test this option, you'll have to connect as a learner as it has been disabled for teachers for practical reasons.
As long as the platform administrator has enabled this feature, the teacher can select the Allow training theme option to choose the graphical style of his course. It is also possible to select a separate theme for an individual Learning Path. This means that a learner might theoretically enter his Chamilo campus, see the platform in a particular visual style, (e.g. mostly blue), enter a course and see the style change to red, then enter a learning path and see the style mostly green... For visual comfort, it is recommended, however, to avoid style changes unless they are justified for real pedagogical reasons.
Note : a learner will be able to return to the course homepage from the left menu inside the learning path. The idea here is not to disable or hide the course homepage, but rather to speed access to the course content.
