This roadmap provides some information on upcoming features of Learn for Jira.

Progress tracking and reports

This feature is partially delivered. Progress is being tracked, and both personal progress and team reports have been provided in the v1.1 release.

Progress tracking serves a few helpful purposes. For the learner, it lets them see what they have completed and what remains to be done. Learners can quickly find new content and estimate how much more time is needed to complete a course.

For managers, it can be helpful to know how much more time a team member will need to complete training and see if training has been completed.

And for the company, progress tracking helps you see the value that your team members are getting from training and how much they are engaging with the content.

Learn for Jira tracks module and course completion and presents this through reports. There will also be a course report to see how many people have engaged with a course’s content and what the average survey score for the course is.

Course report

Our other reports are focused on a user’s progress through the training content; the course report is focused on a course’s overall performance. This report will summarize how many people have engaged with a course’s content and its average survey results.

Permissions management

Learn for Jira uses Jira’s built-in permissions in a variety of ways.

Delegate management

Learn for Jira will introduce several new Jira roles:

  • Learn for Jira Administrator (L4J Admin)

  • Course Admin

  • Report Admin

The L4J Admin will be able to edit and create courses, filter content, and associate team leads with teams for team reports.

The course admin will be able to access the Course Editor tools.

The report admin will be able to create teams and associate team leads with teams.

Content filtering

Content filtering will let you decide who gets access to what content.

For instance, if you want the Jira Service Management for Agents Course to only be visible to members of the Jira-service-management group, you will be able to edit the course and set its permission.

Course Editor

Learn for Jira organizes content into modules, chapters, and courses and facilitates finding individual modules through search. The Course Builder tool will let the L4J and Course Admins add, remove, and edit content. It will also let non-administrators create and share learning paths. Read more on our Course Editor page.

Add and modify content

L4J and Course Admins will be able to create courses, create chapters, and create modules. They will be able to add modules to existing chapters, edit the names of courses, chapters, and modules, and delete content from L4J. 

A full license for Learn for Jira will be required to add content to L4J. You can create courses or remove/associate built-in content from an existing course using the 30-day trial, but a license is required to publish custom content to courses and learning paths.

For more details, check out our Content Management page.

Build and modify courses

Building and modifying courses will be done through a web interface that provides an onscreen editor for the course, chapter, and page names and descriptions. A drag-and-drop interface will be used to add and remove modules from chapters.

Create and share learning paths

While the L4J Admin permission will be needed to work with courses, individual users will be able to create learning paths for themselves. A learning path will often be focused on a job role rather than an application and will include modules from multiple courses.

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 with 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.
