A learning path is the grey line that forms when you lay out a new hub. If you grab the needle you use to lay out a new hub and release it on an existing hub, you connect the two hubs with a learning path instead of laying out a new one. Your students follow the learning paths through the loop. You can also build a loop with a central hub and several paths leading out from the hub. You then have to tell your students in the hub text in the first hub, what options they have and how you expect them to take on work in the loop. When a loop branches out and there are several paths to choose from you have to do the same.
