Integrate LMS with Confluence?

Does anyone have experience implementing a LMS (Learning Management System) with Confluence?

There's the Gilly plugin from Edubrite which is a LMS. We evaluated this but did not feel the LMS features were strong enough, although the integration was okay. Worth checking out as it may suit your needs though. Can you describe your scenario a little more? Is it for internal training, or are you offering training courses on a commercial basis? Do you have existing training content, perhaps in Scorm format?

Excellent questions, Charles.

  • This is for internal training
  • We are a large nonprofit
  • We need a way for people to self-enroll in trainings (very important)
  • We need the system to send calendar items or confirmations of some kind.

Integration with Confluence is primarily around the content associated with the trainings. We do everything else on our Confluence instance (it is super active) and want some integration there for staff. SSO would also be nice.

We were looking for something similar - a need to manage training plans/history by employee; upload certs/training proof of attendance; approval workflow to sign up for training; reporting of hours by time period and/or employee; self maintain, etc.

Our primary point of entry is Confluence; thus, we were looking to have something integrate with it...

Gilly is focused on tests which is a very, very small subset of what is needed.

Have you received any other responses to this or determine how you are approaching it?

We have 200 employee.

Hi Karie,
If you are still looking for a Confluence solution to manage training content, take a look at the Learn Up add-on.

Hello,

I think the Quizzes for Confluence add-on can be useful for some of those interested in having their assessments and training courses in Confluence. This add-on allows you to create assessments and tests right in Confluence. No integrations with 3rd party platforms are required.

Quizzes can be used on their own for such use cases as assessment of job applicants. And as a part of a training course created right in Confluence using powerful capabilities of the wiki - e.g. for employee training. 

With this add-on you can basically make a simple LMS from your Confluence.

I'd upvote the question as this is still actual AFAIK.

Throughout my research no Confluence-comaptible on-remise LMSes have been found. Surprisingly, no integration for the "best of both worlds" - Confluence and Moodle - is offered; however, it could be a golden niche.

Looking at the same thing - ours is probably more complicated as we're using an OnDemand instance which would probably mean a direct plugin is ruled out unless it was perfect and we managed to convince the developers it was worth the conversion.

We don't mind if it's a manual process, just that whatever confluence can spit out, the LMS can accept.

We're about to implement a learn management system from Successfactors. Instead of having the learning content within the course management system we would prefer to have it in confluence. Therefore, we'd be interested, if this is possible.

"Learning content" can be all sorts of formats like pdf, ppt, videos etc. which probably aren't a big deal. It becomes more challenging when talking about SCORM format. How about this?

I'd appreciate any comments. Haven't seen anysthing here for a while...

Hi Kerstin,
Take a look at the Learn Up add-on.

Hi,

Gilly supports all kinds of self paced courses with content like PDF, Doc, Powerpoint, SCORM 1.2 / 2004, AICC, Audio/Video, Voiced Powerpoint etc. Gilly is essentially a plugin for EduBrite LMS which in turn allows you to build the courses. 

Full documentation about EduBrite / Gilly can be accessed on support.edubrite.com.

At present Gilly works only for on-premise installation of Confluence. While EduBrite LMS is cloud/SaaS solution. We expect to make Gilly compatible with Confluence on-demand soon. 

 

Something Gilly lacks is on-premise installation.

Could we be a little more specific, would it be possible to integrate other applications such as Moodle and Mahara with Confluence? Moodle for the LMS side, and Mahara for the portfolio building side.

Could make the whole set of tools into an exceedingly powerful concept.
