Can only a few of your team members raise a ticket on Jira? Is it painful onboarding your new employees and getting them up to speed on how to use your Jira instance? Do you feel like despairing when you see a colleague randomly clicking buttons as they try to change the status of an issue?

Well, here's the thing, it doesn't have to be that way. Meet Learn for Jira, the best way to get your people using Jira the way they should be. 

Learn Jira in Jira! 

Learn for Jira is a native Jira Server and Data Center app that will meet any Jira training needs within your organisation. With a course catalogue that caters to any training level, you can find the most up-to-date training videos, right where they should have been all along – inside Jira.  

Do you have new Jira users to onboard? The "Jira for Beginners" course will help your users not only understand what happens when they click a button, but also when and why they should click it, who they should talk with, and what needs to be considered as part of a configuration decision.

Do you need to upskill your existing teams? With Learn for Jira you can create a specific learning path for them that might include the "Jira for Power Users ", "Jira Software for Scrum" or "Jira Software for Kanban" courses.

A bit of history

We believe that Atlassian tools help make people’s work easier, but you have to know how to use the tools properly. Figuring out how to use the tools can soon become your job instead of helping you do your job. Jira without training is an incomplete solution. However getting everyone trained can often be a scheduling and financial nightmare.

Learn for Jira provides on-demand training at a price that works equally well for small teams and multinational organisations. Our priority is to help people work better together, so we have taken an agile and cost-effective approach both to developing this training and building this app to meet the needs of any organisation.
