There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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.)

    • Sensei Test Submission

      We need a way to stop students from submitting their tests for grading until they have answered all of the questions in the lesson that they are taking.
      Some of our students are pressing enter on their "keyboard" on their keyboard or the "complete lesson" button by accident before they have finished answering all of the questions.
      This is a pretty big issue for us.
      Thanks!

      • Limit the number of times a quiz can be taken

        We need to limit the number of times a student can take a quiz. For example, if they fail the quiz 3 times, they should not be able to take it again. (can make it so that the admin can override this - and reopen... but by default there should be a maximum number of attempts that can be set).

          • Messaging on a user basis rather than all threads in one long page

            At present the only way a tutor can message a student is to go to Sensei -> Messages and the trawl through a large amount of threads to find one with the student they want to message. It would be very helpful if a tutor could log in and browse by user and then message them.

            • Course "Pass" Expiration

              Really need a simple function that on a user completing a course it not only adds the date of completion but importantly allows an expiry date to be added eg. 1 year. This will mean that just before the year is up an email is sent informing the user that they are going to need to resit their test. This will ensure the user is always up to date with the course if it changes in that time or they have forgotten some of it.

              • 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....

                • Save, Complete and Reset Quiz in a Widget

                  I have long quizzes and I would like a widget I can make sticky so at any point a learner can click save to resume later. Some of the learners are in remote locations and if the internet goes out they should be able to go back to their last save. The buttons being at the bottom some learners may not know they are there in a 100+ question quiz...

                  Would be nice to have the quiz save without refreshing the page if possible.

                  Thanks for the great work!

                  • 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.

                      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.

                      • enable the possibility of having public and private courses

                        Some sites allow viewing and participation in public courses.

                        I need to make a public course so that, registered users can run tests of the lesson and allow unregistered users to see the comments. If an unregistered user see the comments of other users is encouraged to register.

                        So my request is to add the ability to customize what and who can read and participate in a course

                        • 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…

                          • Multi-part Questions

                            I'd really like to see multi-part questions added as a feature. It seems like if quizzes were accessible outside of the Lesson editor, the possibilities for more a robust system would really open up.

                            An example: Question Intro (Contains text and image to be used by the next three questions). Three questions follow, each referencing the intro. If any of the three are missed, the overall question is failed. Each set of questions can be displayed randomly.

                              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.

                              • 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'.

                                • 'Contact Teacher' form/button enhancements

                                  I think you chould add an option so we can choose whether to display the current "Contact teacher/Send private message" button or the contact form right away...

                                  Also, I think you could add a hook so we could change the HTML to be outputted and be able to change the default "Send Private Message" to something like "Ask <lessson_teacher_name>".

                                  Hope you find this interesting enough.

                                  Thanks!

                                  • Require videos to be watched before taking a quiz.

                                    Either that, or at least, add the option to ask a required question: "Have you watched the video?" to proceed to the quiz.

                                    • Test item statistics

                                      At a minimum:

                                      Difficulty (overall percent correct)
                                      Alpha coefficient for each quiz (statistically very easy to calculate)

                                      Ideally:
                                      R (item discrimination)

                                      As a test developer, I require the ability to use statistics to replace or modify "bad" items.

                                      • Better usability of modules and lessons. Sensei should work like this: http://codestore.codeiscode.com/wpep/

                                        First thing: all lessons should open without page refreshing.
                                        The rest you can see here:
                                        http://codestore.codeiscode.com/wpep/

                                        www.DigitalMarketer.com uses this kind of workflow in their membership and it is so great experience that I think Sensei should have it right now. (If Woo wants to sell more offcourse).

                                        • Better Course analytics

                                          This must be a top priority, Sensei has the best usability, but other WP Plugins are ahead in the critical Analytics game
