Learning paths enable users to create customized training. paths consist of a series of modules, ordered to provide information on a specific topic or role. Any module available in the Course Editor can be used in a learning path. While the L4J admin permission is needed to work with courses, all Learn users will be able to create and edit learning paths. If the L4J admin allows it, users will be able to share learning paths with the company. This way, users can create a learning path for their job role and share it to other people with the same job role.

The L4J admin will also have the ability to promote a learning path to become a course. This would make the learning path global for all Learn for Jira users.
