Course Content

Introduction to Confluence

Confluence is a powerful collaboration platform that helps teams of all sizes work better together. It provides an easy-to-use cloud-based solution for hosting and sharing documents, streamlining workflow, and fostering collaboration.

To get you up and running quickly with Confluence, in this section we will provide an overview of the tool and step-by-step instructions on how to get free access to Confluence instance in the cloud which you will use for hands-on examples provided in the course.

Creating and Editing Content

Working with Confluence is a great way to share information and ideas with team members. In this section, we’ll take a look at how to set up the platform, create confluence pages and spaces, edit, format and delete pages, as well as how to use macros for more comprehensive page layouts.

With this knowledge under your belt setting up confluence spaces and working with confluence pages becomes a breeze.

Sharing and Collaboration in Confluence

With the Confluence collaboration platform, you can easily share and co-edit documents with colleagues or stakeholders. Additionally, Confluence makes it simple to interact with team members by creating comments and threaded discussions within pages, allowing for real-time feedback and quick resolution of questions and issues.

You can even set up notifications so that anyone who has access to a document gets alerted when topics or key elements are modified by another user.

Using Spaces to Organize Work

Confluence spaces are a great way to organize information in Confluence and make sure the right people have access to the documents they need. By creating different confluence spaces for each project, you can keep related documents together, making it easier for users to find what they need. Additionally, confluence spaces allow you to control who has access to view or edit documents within that space.

In this section, you will learn how confluence spaces work and how they can be used to easily organize and track information within your organization.


Confluence offers many additional features to streamline workflows and help teams collaborate efficiently. Integration with Jira and Google Drive are two especially helpful examples; using these integrations, teams can stay connected even when working on different platforms.
