  1. Give each course its own Forum, Events, and News

    No wordpress LMS has the ability to integrate the course with forums, events, uploaded files, and news or notifications. Then another important aspect is an archive page for each of these which shows the student the items he has access to. If this was possible then Sensei would be an extremely powerful tool, and I would be your best friend. No other LMS has these features which are SO important

    If we put ourselves in the teachers shoes, we want to be able to give notifications to only one class, to make events for one class, and have a forum.…

    • The option to have the quiz load on the same page as the content

      Currently the quiz loads on it's own page, but I think it would be handy to at least have the option for the quiz to be loaded on the content page. Especially if students require another review of the content to answer the question. (saves them having to navigate backwards).

      • Please allow the option to receive feedback only on questions students answered incorrectly - and NOT ONLY when they have passed the quiz!

        I want students to see which questions they and aswered wrong, to help them learn why they made the mistakes they did. Assessment can be a teaching tool - not only an evaluation tool. (This from someone with years of,experience developing assessments for instruction.)

        • Import lesson comments to bbpress Form => Topic

          Now that we have Buddypress integration (yay!), the final step is to kick-start those empty forums with the discussion already posted by students to existing Sensei lessons.

          I've tried a plugin called "bbPress Post Topics" which works beautifully for blog posts. It creates a new "topic" for any post in a forum of your choice, then converts all post comments to "replies" in that forum topic.

          It even allows for the appropriate topic to replace the default WP comments system at the end of each post.

          The trouble is, it doesn't appear to work with Sensei lessons, I'm guessing because…

          • Permanent certificate access.

            We are using Groups/Sensei with expiry dates on courses. So currently if a person subscribes to a course they get access for a certain period of time to the content and then it expires. Access to the certificate expires with it.

            Is there a way we can give people permanent access to their certificates that are created.

            • Ability to set (simple text) lessons to complete automatically

              It would be good to have a checkbox on the edit lesson page which would allow the lesson to be set to completed automatically. It's very unintuitive that users have to click on the 'Complete lesson' button e.g. on simple text lessons. Would be great if these pages (or any page the admin wants) could be set to completed automatically with a 'Next lesson' button displayed instead - and without the 'Congratulations...' message box.

              • Creating paid courses on the fly within Sensei without needing to create a product manually in WooCommerce

                Make selling the products easier by adding the selling info (price...) on the course page itself within Sensei, once this is done the course is up for sale (even if it meant creating a product behind the scene), this will ease the process and eliminates the duplicate work. Going through this duplication effort is not scalable especially in a marketplace setting.

                  • "Next Lesson" Widget

                    I've been poking around on a couple of membership sites that feature online courses. One thing I've seen that would be helpful in a learner "dasboard" area is a prominent "next lesson" button, which displays a direct link to the next lesson in whatever course was last viewed.

                    Here's a screen shot: http://tinyurl.com/nfp4fmm

                    It strikes me as a helpful way for a learner to pickup where they left off – regardless of what course it was – immediately after logging in.

                    • Add Learning Paths

                      A building block approach to learning that helps your students reach their goals. Let's say you have 5 courses all on the same topic but geared towards different levels of learners. 2 of them are for beginners, 2 for intermediate and 1 for experts. If someone completes all 5 courses they have completed that path. Maybe tie it to badges but absolutely necessary for anyone offering any type of certifications, etc....

                          • Reorganize lessons BETWEEN modules in Order Lessons

                            Currently, you can only organize Lessons within a Module and not transfer them between Modules. It would be a huge improvement to allow the drag and drop of Lessons wherever you want them in this window. Also, Modules do not appear here unless there is already a Lesson assigned to them. All Modules should appear whether or not they have a Lesson assigned to enable easy drag and drop.

                              It would be nice to be able to default to the video for the Course to display, but if there is no video, then use the Featured Image instead.

                              • Make it EASY for users (and owners) to CUSTOMIZE their profiles.

                                Perhaps it's because I'm using Divi (elegant themes), but profiles and "my account" on Sensei... leave something to be desired.

                                Like MANY of us who use Sensei and WooCommerce integration, our primary focus is to sell great products and create an amazing user experience.

                                Our customers want "one click" easy access to:

                                1. Changing their avatar,
                                2. Updating their password,
                                3. Updating their bio, tagline, etc. Just like Facebook or anything else with a profile page.
                                4. (re) Downloading any digital products they purchased in woocommerce.
                                5. Access to badges, certificates, OR to hide them if they don't want to…

                                • Don't use tabs in the UI, because it sucks on mobile devices

                                  Hi.

                                  I would like to request that the learner-profile template, does not use tabs to display the current courses and completed courses, because tab pages suck on mobile devices.

                                  Why not simply display a section with Active Courses, followed by a section with completed courses beneath each other, which would look nicer on mobile devices.

                                  See this example screenshot..

                                  https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3809836/learner-profile-mobile-device.jpg

                                  PS. It is in Danish.

                                    • Manual grading feedback notes

                                      Is there any way the feedback notes from manual grading can be added to the learners list of courses, where the 'view certificate' and 'view results' buttons are?

                                      At the moment it is very convoluted process for learners to find their feedback.

                                      • BadgeOS points earned per year

                                        Hi there I would like the total points earned Widget for BadgeOS to show the points earned for that calendar year or since the user signed up to the site for that user registered year so to speak. Right now the BadgeOS just shows a total ever which is fine but not very useful after a few years or even for applications which require courses to be refreshed each year. I would like to see the ability for the widget to display the points earned that year or even for it to be displayed on the Profile page if not…

                                        • Control the tabs on the my course page and profile page

                                          Right now the my-courses page and the profile page has tabs for active courses and completed courses and I would love a third tab to show the Achievements and/or points from BadgeOS. Infact in reality the BadgeOS tab of achievements would show first in my scenario so controlling the order of these tabs would be important. Adding a third tab here would allow me to show the stats to the user in a simple way and mostly the stats would be the achievements / points they have earned. Most of the work related applications for Sensei I have been involved…
