We work closely with leaders across GitLab to develop landing pages for learning material that is tailored to specific departments and teams. By creating learning hubs in Level Up, teams can contribute, curate, organize, and suggest professional development opportunities for their team members. Some scenarios where you might want to build a Channel include:
To create new leanring hub, open an issue in the lxp-contributions project using the
learning-hub issue template.
Anyone at GitLab should feel empowered to host a learning session. Why would you want to host a live learning event? Maybe you are the expert on something. Or maybe you just want to learn more about a specific topic and share those learnings with more people.
To host a live learning event, start by opening an issue in the Learning and Development general project using the
live_learning template. All steps should be outlined on this template.
Examples of past Live Learning events:
Anyone team at GitLab is encoruaged to build new courses. Some scenarios where you might want to build a pathway include:
Before you start the process to build content for a learning pathway, it's important that you ensure an existing pathway with the same content or style does not exist. Below are some strategies you can use to search existing content and check for duplication before you start building content.
After you've done a complete search of existing material that you can integrate into your pathway creation, you should start building the remainder of the content your pathway needs. When your content is built, open an issue on the lxp-contributions project using the
lxp_contribution issue template.
