- Self-paced, online learning – you can learn what you need when you need it, by choosing the appropriate trail. Trailhead applies the model of interactive learning made popular by websites such as Code School, Codecademy, Udacity, Treehouse, Coursera and Khan Academy, to the goal of learning Salesforce.
- Learning paths –Trailhead content is arranged in a hierarchy, with three levels: trails, modules, and units, and presented in a specific sequence, so customers have a predefined path to follow, and don’t have to spend time deciding what to read and in what order.
- Modular and engaging content – each tutorial consists of short units, which can be read in 10-15 minutes each. The content is designed to be simple, self-contained, and directly useful, to maximize the value of the learning experience.
- Interactive assessments – at the end of each unit, you can take a challenge to verify what you just learned, either by answering multiple-choice questions or performing specific tasks in a DE org. On completing a challenge, you can click a button and get instant feedback on whether you got it right.
- Gamification – we award points and badges on successful completion of units and modules, respectively. The points and badges are displayed on your user profile, so you can get recognition for your expertise.
