Courses and Quizzes - LMS app for Confluence allows you to create courses in Confluence and enroll anyone by email. Courses are great for:
- Training and educating employees and customers
- Organizing onboarding
- Enabling knowledge transfer
- Provide self-directed learning opportunities
Create a new course
- Click Create in Confluence header and select the Course blueprint.
- Type Course name and description (if needed).
Click Create. You’ll see an empty course administration page.
Courses are created with viewing restrictions. By default, a course can be viewed only by its creator. Later on the author can modify viewing restrictions and add grant viewing permissions to some other users or user groups, e.g. to collaborate on a course or have it reviewed by someone else.
A course consists of sections and modules:
- Section – a title for a subset of modules
- Module – a piece of course content
Types of modules
There are two types of modules:
- Page – Confluence pages are used for sharing learning material
- Quiz – quizzes are used for checking understanding
It is possible to use existing Confluence pages and quizzes as well as create new ones.

Enroll to course
To enroll participants to a course, click the Enroll participants button on a course administration page.

Participants will get an email with a link to the course. Confluence users will also receive a workbox notification. Each course link is unique, different people get different links.
You cannot enroll the same participant twice. However, you can delete a participant in Results tab and enroll that person one more time.
