Don't remove izi - LMS for Confluence user from course page permissions. This is the app user that is needed for courses to work.
If you add co-authors to a course, make sure you add the same people in co-authors for quizzes included in this course.
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

It is possible to use existing Confluence pages and quizzes as well as create new ones.

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.
You cannot enroll the same participant twice. However, you can delete a participant in the Report tab and enroll that person one more time.
As an alternative to enrolling participants, you can set up automatic enrollment for Confluence groups.
