Terms and Concepts

Below is a reference for terms used throughout Learn for Jira.

  • Course - Courses are organised into chapters and modules. A course must have at least one chapter, and a chapter must have at least one module. Courses are typically linear—​subsequent modules and chapters build on the information that came before. Courses are also global and, unless restricted by permissions, visible to all users.

  • Learning Path - Learning paths are organised similarly to courses but are created by users rather than an administrator. A learning path often includes modules from multiple courses that are relevant to the learner’s job, rather than being focused on a single application.

  • Chapter - Chapters are part of courses and contain one of more modules.

  • Module - When accessing a page within a course to watch a video or engage with learning content, that page is called a module.

  • Learning Resource - The content on a page, such as a video, is called a learning resource.

  • Downloadable Resources - Documents that supplement a learning resource. These can be accessed through the Downloadable Resources button at the top-right of a learning resource.

  • Transcript - Downloadable transcripts provide the narration of a video in text form.

  • Quick Reference - 1-2 page guides that can be printed or distributed to provide an easy-to-use reference for frequently used information.

  • Activity Guide - Hands-on exercises that you can perform in your Atlassian system to practice what you are learning.

  • Reference Guide - Longer document that provides in-depth information to supplement the video lectures.

  • Course Completion - A course is considered complete if the end-of-course survey has been submitted by the user. The user’s certificate of completion will be generated when the survey has been submitted.
