    • Show wrong answers

      Once the test is taken it's nice to see the percent correct, but there's no feedback for which questions are wrong. Unless, I'm not seeing this in the examples, it would be very frustrating if a 100% is required to pass (i.e. a homework assignment).

        We are currently reviewing the way this works and intend to improve the flexibility in a future version, while making sure it still works correctly for people happy with the current setup.

        For those wondering why it currently works like it does, it’s for courses where a passing grade is required, to prevent learners from simply selecting any answers, then seeing the correct answers, retaking the quiz and getting a perfect score.

        We realise that there are many different use cases for this though, and not all quizzes require something this strict, which is why we are revisiting this functionality.

        Thanks for your patience.

      • Add Course to Multiple Products in WooCommerce

        It would be nice if I could take a course and add it to multiple products in WooCommerce. Currently I would like to offer a course as part of a subscription and as a standalone product.

        Please makes this possible!

        • URL friendly (SEO)

          Having a more friendly URL (SEO)!
          For example, instead of "/lesson/lesson-one /" be "/name-course/lesson-one/".

          • Forget SCORM support Tin Can API !

            If Woo Themes want Sensei to have an edge over competition then please add Sensei support/integration for Tin Can API for courses. being able to track and report on formal and informal learning activities using tin can statements is the future - SCORM is limited and legacy.

              • Show one question at a time in quiz

                Currently all the quiz questions are displayed in one page. It will be preferable to show them one at a time using back/next button.

                  Upon launch, the user will be notified that they have a certain time-frame to complete the course.They can close the course and come back to it, but access to it will expire within that certain time (a few days or weeks).

                    We’re planning to build this into the next version of our new Content Drip extension – http://www.woothemes.com/products/sensei-content-drip/

                    One alternative way to do this would be using Groups as described in this post – http://www.woothemes.com/2014/02/creating-a-tiered-membership-site-with-sensei-and-groups/

                    When you create a product that grants access to a Group, it allows you to set a duration, after which the user will be removed from that group.

                  • Make Sensei Certificates More Flexible With Additional Text Areas

                    The Sensei Certificates plugin is pretty cool. But it stops just short of being awesome. You're already got placeholders like {{learner}} to insert name, date, etc. So why call the text areas "Header", "Place", "Completion Date" etc? Why not just have an "Add New" button, that lets you add either a text field, or a text box (for paragraphs). You can then place that, just like you can now, where you want it. This way you can add as many text areas as you want/need, and can just use the placeholders, if you want a field to be/have the course…

                    • Add "Next Lesson" button once lesson is complete

                      Hi,

                      This is a really daft one, but I was amazed this was not in Sensi.

                      Once you complete a lesson, what is the next step? The next step is the next lesson and there is no next lesson button!!!

                      class-woothemes-sensi-frontend.php

                      Around line 1175 after
                      } elseif( $show_actions ) {
                      sensei_reset_lesson_button();

                      Add
                      // Added for next lesson button at top and bottom of single course page
                      $nav_id_array = sensei_get_prev_next_lessons( $post_id );
                      $next_lesson_id = absint( $nav_id_array['next_lesson'] );

                      if ( 0 < $next_lesson_id ) {

                      // get_permalink( $next_lesson_id ) to make the next link

                      }

                      That's how I worked around it, just…

                          • Built-in support for protected Amazon S3 video code.

                            For Sensei to really be a sophisticated tool to offer online classes and workshops, it really has to offer a means to provide students with protected video. Hosting through Vimeo Pro, while nice, has limitations and isn't the smoothly professional delivery model that more experienced users seek--and that reflects a level or professionalism from the instructor. I find it shocking that Sensei supports Funny or Die videos but not S3--I mean, honestly, that's shameful. This product has SO MANY great features and would be integrated on my site today, but regardless of how many themes I chose or work-arounds I…

                            • Team Courses

                              Team managers should be able to register their team to complete a course individually.

                              For example, when integrated with WooCommerce, a manager could purchase 5 licences for a single course for his 5 employees to complete individually.

                              The managers should then be able to download a report with which members have completed the course and their results.

                                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 Seats: Allow someone to purchase a group of courses (multiples of the same course) on one billing for distribution to a group of people. The customer can then email a registration link to the people that need to take the course. This would be helpful for people that need to train employees via bulk course purchases.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Be able to see WHO has completed a specific course

                                        It is not possible to see what students have completed a specific course if you have more than one course. In analysis only the number of completed courses is given. The only way to see who has completed what is to click on each student and take a manual note. Basic need!

                                        • Completing lessons moves you into next lesson

                                          If you don't have a quiz for a lesson, it would be nice if when you click the complete lesson button it either:

                                          Shows a message saying, do you want to move o the next lesson (including the lesson excerpt)

                                          Or

                                          Moves you forward automatically

                                          What do others think?

                                          Cheers
