  1. Shortcodes for ALL THE THINGS

    Free us from the tyranny Sensei theming! Free us from the endless free courses on learning to edit PHP. Build us shortcodes for EVERYTHING (CoursePress by WPMUdev does this) so that we can build and style layouts as we please using the WP editor!

      • Go to lesson 1 vs. Go to previous lesson

        One issue I encountered is this: A registered user has registered for a course but hasn't completed any lessons yet. If he erroneously clicks on lesson 4 first of all, he is informed that he has to complete the previous lesson first. This needs to be corrected to 'Go to lesson 1', as opposed to 'Go to previous lesson'.

        • Let the LEARNERS be able to export their answers from the Quizzes

          When a course is completed, would't it be great to give the learners the possibility to download all their answers from the Quizzes? Preferably in .doc or .pdf and other widely spread formats. But also a simple HTML-page would work.

          This would give the learners more value since the Quizzes often is a great summary of the key elements of the course. Especially useful in cases where you use a lot of multi line questions.

          With this addition the users can print out all their answers after the completed course and keep them with them forever and ever.

          My students…

            Hi Martin

            Most browsers make it fairly simple to save the current page as a PDF. For example, in Safari, you just go to File > Export as PDF. In Chrome you can save as PDF using the Print function. So if you save the page after submitting a quiz, then it will include your answers.

            If this is something your students often request, it might be worthwhile sending them an email explaining how they can do that.

            • Sensei Certificates, add custom fields

              Add custom fields to certificates in Sensei. This way, users can enter custom data. For example, general contractor's could enter their license number or insurance agents could enter their badge number. This way, the certificate will be official for many certifying bodies. Without this data on the certificate, it is not useful in many professional circumstances. Best to add the request for the custom data after the e-commerce purchase on the very first time entering the course. This way, if they don't have their license/contract number handy, they will proceed with the purchase and add it later. The data in…

              • Protect lesson files

                Currently lesson files are not protected and anyone can access the files if they have the direct link to those files. This is unfortunately not acceptable if you run a business.

                • better grading for multiple choice questions with more than one correct answer

                  Now taht we have multiple choice questions wih more than one corrext answer (Thanks!) the next logical step would be to be able to "downgrade"on wrong choices, i.e. select all correct, correct selection 25% of grade, 2nd correct another 25% etc. incorrect answer 25% deduction of grade.... this would make for a far more effective use of "multiple right" questions.

                  • Course Codes, Course Sections, Teacher Assignments and Uploading of Class Lists

                    It'd be great to have a course code that people can enter. This would allow multiple classes taught by multiple teachers - or the same teacher to break the people taking the course into sections and see the results per class. Also, if they enter that course code I don't want students to have to enter billing information, they should just be able to enter a username and password. Speaking of Username and Password, the teacher should be able to upload a spreadsheet of usernames and passwords to auto-enroll students so they can just login and begin a course. And…

                    • Bulk upload learners to course

                      Currently, Sensei allows us to add learners to a course one at a time using the learner management tab for a specific course. The ability to bulk upload users to a course would be great.

                          • Survey - Not quiz.

                            As part of our Continuing Education Courses - We always have associated quizes. We want users to be forced to take the survey before completing the course.

                            This would basically be a quiz - where there are no right / wrong answers (or could be set so that every answer is correct etc...).

                            Open to alternative work-arounds here... For example, could use a gravity form as a step in the course - and upon submissions, the user gets credit for that component.

                              • save_post_meta function is wrong. I have the fix

                                The function 'save_post_meta' that you can find in both class-woothemes-sensei-course.php and class-woothemes-sensei-lesson.php is wrong.

                                The line that calls add_post_meta should be replaced with this code:

                                if (add_post_meta( $post_id, $meta_key, $new_meta_value, true )==false)
                                update_post_meta( $post_id, $meta_key, $new_meta_value );

                                Why? Because a call to to 'add_post_meta' fails when the $unique argument is set to true and the custom field already exists. In those cases we should update the custom field.

                                We had problems with lessons that were already created and we wanted to update them (e.g. the lesson_course was set to NONE and we tried to assign a course to the lesson)…

                                • Option to make Quizzes optional for the learner

                                  I would like to be able to make the quizzes optional for my learners in some courses. They should be able to mark a lesson as completed and then, if they like to, also take the quiz.

                                  At first glance this seems to be possible: By not checking the checkbox "Pass required to complete lesson" the learner do not have to take the quiz to complete the lesson.

                                  But what happens is this: If the learner push the Complete lesson button and then goes on to the quiz, the Save, Reset and Submit buttons in the Quiz has disappeared.

                                  This…

                                  • Integrate SCORM-and-AICC-compliant lessons

                                    Integrate SCORM-and-AICC-compliant lessons developed with such tools as Macromedia Captivate or Litmos. (Lessons are HTML5 or Flash - just need to pass the grade back to the LMS).

                                      So everyone who has not taken the course by friday-night, has to wait one week to get access.

                                      Actually this is a MUST HAVE for me right now. I build the whole plattform for a one-year-course just to find out that this option is not available yet with content-drip. We…
