  1. Live lessons

    Allow teachers to give lessons in a live environment via webcast. Students could then interact via webcam/text chat etc. The lesson could be recorded to allow the student to look back over it at a later date.

    • Quiz questions with html formatting?

      I'd like the quiz questions to be formattable in html as some of my quiz questions are long and need to be formatted into paragraphs or lists.

      • possibility to add more than one correct answer to multiple choice questions.

        It is not possible to include multiple "right" answers in Sensei's multiple choice question type. We have a serious need to be able to create multiple choice questions in which there is more than one right answer. Will you be able to add this functionality?

        • Display learner names by first/last instead of nickname

          It would be really nice if in Sensei we had the ability in the settings to tell the learner management system to display the names of all learners via first & last name. Right now it's by nickname which is assigned when they create an account. It's hard to easily look and see who is in the course, etc.

          • Add ability for multiple authors / co-authors of a lesson or course

            A lot of lessons or courses nowadays are co-written by multiple experts. It would be great to have the ability to list more than one author / co-authors on lessons and courses.

            • Use the icons "fontawesome" to improve visibility:

              In general to make prettiest Sensei and for example to easily identify documents in the module "media attachment."

              • Invert the logic to create a course

                Perhaps you could invert the logic to create a course. Instead of affecting only one course to one lesson, you could affect one lesson to many courses. Like this a single lesson (a topic) could be used several times.
                Topics to Lessons and Lessons to Courses. In one hand, you could create topic and in another hand you could create the structure like a course with severals lessons, each lesson having one to many topics who could be ordered.

                • Automatically add users to all courses

                  I was hoping it would be possible that, if when a user registers, he/she is automatically registered for all courses.

                  From my understanding, the Learner Management tool allows you to add a user to each course manually, but this can become very time consuming with many users and many courses.

                  If a user becomes created, I would like to have this user automatically registered for all courses on my site.

                  • 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.

                    • 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…

                      • Save quiz questions and answers as PDF

                        Option to save the quiz questions and answers as PDF so the students can print this PDF and bundle their quizes in a binder/PDF bundle to look back into later on.

                          I need to make quiz with timer counting up and give a level of success based on % of good answers AND time to complete.

                            • Extend Media Attachments to allow input of related links as well as documents

                              The Media Attachments plugin is great! It would be so helpful to extend the plugin to also include input fields for "related links" (external URLs).

                              These URLs could appear as simple links in the "Media" area, interspersed with the uploaded media, on the front end.

                              • Ability to send emails to students based on progress with a course.

                                Hi I would love the feature to be able to send emails to customers to remind the to follow lessons. eg. if a student has not made any progress i would love to be able to send an email to stimulate progress.

                                This way I hope that students will complete courses quicker and i can sell them new courses.

                                • Why not design a new theme specially dedicated to Digital Learning?

                                  A theme like "All in One" that would include not only the e-Learning but the Learning Management and Social Learning also. To create a comprehensive tool easy to use for managing community of learners.

                                  No need to develop new programs. They already exist and are free. It would be enough to integrate them into a single workspace for students, teachers and administrator(s).

                                  We can easily find forums, Q & A, directory, webtv, chat, Wiki, network, videoconferencing, and of course, do not forget the educational blogs.

                                  Concurence already offers interesting things but not quite accomplished. Wootheme could make the difference with…

                                  • Remove tabs Active and completed courses

                                    I want the tabs on the users progression page to be gone. I have a progressive workshop with a few courses that need to be completed in order. But when one is completed it moves to another tab. It moves from Active courses tot Completed courses.

                                    But i want the completed courses to be on the same page as the active courses. In fact, it would be nice to have them on top. That way students can better see what they have completed and what needs to be done in one view.

                                    Thanks in advance

                                      • If a quiz is NOT passed, take the student back to the lesson to try again. Currently students have to hit reset, which isn't clear.

                                        When a student doesn't pass a auto graded quiz. The message is displayed at the top telling them they didn't pass. They can look at their questions and see how they did. But it isn't clear to reset to try again.

                                        Maybe have a setting to force the student back to the lesson, and not show them what they got wrong.

                                        Then when they take the quiz again, they will get a new set of random questions from the pool.

                                        • The ability for students to collect points when completing lessons, quizes and courses

                                          When students complete lessons and courses, a number of points is added to their profile, which other users can also see.
