  1. 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…

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Add Capacity Limits to Courses

            Please see this topic: http://ideas.woothemes.com/forums/72423-general-ideas/suggestions/6819741-add-capacity-limits-to-sensei

            Sensei could be an incredibly flexible tool for online learning.
            One feature my clients are very much in need of is setting capacity limits for Sensei Courses - particularly those running on a 'live' schedule with a day-to-day teacher.

            There should be a way to set capacity limits for classes, and when these are full, remove the 'start this course' registration button from public view.

            Another good add on would be to have 'private' courses, or 'invitation only' courses.

            Perhaps all three of these requirements my clients are asking for, could be solved by having…

            • 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.

                        • Optional modules

                          We would like the ability to set some of our modules as optional, but force a student to complete a minimum number. For example, 9 modules from which the student must choose 3 to pass the course.

                            I would like to offer most of my courses for free to increase the number of people using and learning from my website. It would be nice if Sensei could prompt people to donate money if they were happy with the course to allow me to maintain and grow the website.

                            This way anyone can start a course and hopefully they will appreciate all the value I've given them and they'll donate money once they complete the course.

                                        • Re. Media in lessons: Restrict access to embedded images/videos and downloads to learners

                                          It is not advertised but true: in a Wordpress installation, all files uploaded via the media center are not protected from the public, but can be indexed by search engines, and viewed or downloaded by anyone who knows the exact URL of the image, video or download file.

                                          Sensei only protects the post types "lesson" and "course".

                                          That is a missing feature to making Sensei complete: Allow for an intuitive yet advanced tool to manage media file access right out of Wordpress, no code required. It should allow to:
                                          - swap files between the wordpress media folder and the sensei…
