Course content

A course consists of sections and 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

Enrollment Recommendations:

  1. Avoid enrolling Confluence users by email. They will be enrolled as external users and won't see a course you enrolled them to in Learning.

  2. You cannot enroll the same participant twice. However, you can delete a participant in the Report tab and enroll that person one more time.
