Naturally, we get asked why courses in Pathwright don’t include a sidebar. Fair question. I’ll share two reasons why I think it’s time for course designers to break up with their sidebars.
The idea of “teaching” an online course has been largely distorted to mean packaging up a bunch of videos and documents and then focusing all energy towards selling it
On a given Saturday, with time on my side and a bit of boldness, YouTube will teach me almost any skill. I need to change the oil in my car? 3,660,000 videos are ready at hand to show me how.
Introducing new categories and our top six blog posts from 2018.
The Pathwright Team
Last year, after working in the “real world” for three years, I decided to move to England in order to study for a Master’s degree.
We've put together compilations of 2018's illustrations for you as free desktop and mobile wallpaper downloads.
We're excited to officially announce the biggest new feature we've built to date: Blocks. Blocks gives you the power to design effective, engaging learning content like never before.
Learning has always had the same enemy: distraction. And teachers have always had the same task: to fight distraction with good design. That's more true in the brave new world of the internet...
Every so often a person is gifted with both wonderful skill and the skill to teach. David Foster Wallace was such a person.
The story of the three-point shot and what it has to teach us about why point values matter in an online course.
To kick off a new school year, I thought I'd share some of my favorite wisdom from other teachers.
We sometimes get asked if Pathwright plays friendly with other apps. The answer is a resounding "yes" because of a really cool tool called Zapier...
Like the first page of a novel, your course introduction sets the tone for everything that follows. In a course, the first few steps can give your learners a map of what they’ll learn and the energy to tackle it.
To do a little myth-busting, a course isn’t simply collected information. Teaching is the shape that information takes and the relationship that’s built around it.
About three months ago, my team set out to make a DIY demo of Pathwright. We just launched it!
The web is in an awkward phase right now. We’re transitioning from an era where a website was simply a collection of linked pages to one where even using the term “page” to describe a particular screen is a giant oversimplification.
This is part one of a three part series in which Laurie, our Guidance Expert, shares Pathwright’s subtle superpowers and hidden features you might have missed.
Jerry Seinfeld wants to know if you’ll watch his show. Well, that was a big question when developing his internet show "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”
Online courses should be more than just an attractive way to convey information, because learning is more than just relaying facts. It’s about relationships that build frameworks for information.
There are – and always will be – hundreds of features that we could build but haven't. If you’ve ever wondered about how we prioritize what to build, well…
I love exploring historic universities. While living in London last year, I had the chance to explore some of Oxford’s colleges and numerous universities in Scotland.
Part three of our three part Guidance series from Laurie. Integrate your account with other powerful tools...
Before you read this, pause and take a look at everything you’ve learned in the past month. …and done? Of course not.
Free courses are an easy way to attract new sign-ups and help people who don’t have the budget to learn what we teach. Win-win, right? Well, not exactly.
The primary users of Pathwright are the hundreds of thousands of students completing learning steps every day. None of these users pay us.
The moment a lecture turns to asking questions, exploring answers, critiquing, expanding, etc. is usually when the most engaged learning happens.

I’m a graphic designer. That’s why it’s weird for me to say that, when you use Pathwright, you probably won’t have to pay someone like me.
