Cisco U. Learning Paths display the estimated amount of time per learning track to help the learner determine the time it will take to complete their learning goals. Pre-assessments help the learner evaluate their level of knowledge and skip a section to expedite their learning. Post-assessments help the learner determine their proficiency in a subject and whether they need to retake a section. Total completion time depends on many factors, such as the individual learner, assessment results, and the type of content. 

Users can navigate to the Explore section on Cisco U., which  shows available content for Learning Paths, courses, events and webinars, podcasts, videos, and tutorials.
