  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • A sidebar in Course page to see teacher bio, learners' review like Skillshare http://goo.gl/cKJdgw

          Each page should have specific sidebar to display the relevant content. I really want to include the learner's reviews right in the course sidebar instead of woocommerce product page.

          The Skillshare team did a REALLY awesome job on this point. Please check this link: http://goo.gl/cKJdgw

          • sensei seats

            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.

            • Provide Evaluation form once course completed

              Once user has completed the course, we need to ask user to fill up the evaluation form and then we can mark the course as completed.

                Please resolve the issues and recommendations as shown by Theme Check plugin and WordPress debug mode. The load of errors, warnings and infos is making it impossible to actually debug the theme itself...

                • Must get question correct before progressing or similar

                  Rather than waiting until the end to find out how many questions were answered correctly, in situations where user must get all questions right, do not allow them to continue on until they have the correct answer. Would need a next button for each question or a way to auto mark as you go. Or when they are shown the questions they got right and wrong when they retry the ones they got right remain and they just need to redo the ones they got wrong.

                      • Class Questions and Answers

                        I love the idea to have a place for students to ask instructors questions. What I would like to see is a "Q/A" section for each module or lesson (depending on how you want to do your Q/A).

                        This QA section would allow students to post questions and vote up questions if they have similar questions. The students should be able to post test, images (upload), videos (vimeo, youtube), .pdf, .doc, .pages, or whatever you want to allow them to upload.

                        There should be an option to allow students to answer other student questions or only allow instructors to answer…

                        • Matching: New Type of Question for Quizzes

                          It'd be great to be able to create matching exercises (two columns, same number of items, one to one relationship) using Sensei.

                            • Sensei Private Courses

                              It would be helpful to have private courses with separate URL, so they don't show up in the general course list. You might have corporate, educational and general courses, and you want different list for each of them. That way corporate customers don't need to go through entire course list which is not relevant to their interest.

                              If anybody have any idea how to implement this with present Sensei please reply. thanks.

                                • Great ability for developers to customize templates

                                  I find myself unsatisfied with Sensei plugin when I discovered how limiting the ability to theme the content output actually is. It is EXTREMELY difficult, even when using action hooks and filters, to modify what content Sensei displays. For example, you can't specify if you want an excerpt or the full content displayed for lessons on a single course archive page. This is particularly true when it comes to using extensions, such as Modules; in that situation you can only show a simple link. The content is physically in a database and accessible, so please let developers extend capabilities by…

                                  • Student Validation

                                    For CE providers some boards required that we collect user data (favorite color, city born in, etc.) and ask ask them for this information throughout a course. I would like to see this added as a quiz question where the answer to the question is checked against the information submitted to the student's account.

                                    An even better "nice to have" would be facial recognition. Blackboard just partnered with KeyLemon to integrate their facial recognition into the Blackboard platform.

                                    • Embedded Answers (Cloze) Question Type - Quizzes

                                      It'd be great to be able to create clozes using Sensei. This way, we could have several gaps to be filled on a text. It should be self gradable.

                                      Check Moodle's documentation regarding this topic, it could be of some help here: http://docs.moodle.org/27/en/Embedded_Answers_%28Cloze%29_question_type

                                      • Private message functionality by course/lesson rather than global setting

                                        The private message function is very cool. But I think it would be much for versatile as a setting on the course level rather than global. That way, you could have the normal course, and charge a premium fee for the same course with instructor interaction and feedback.

                                        • Ability to vary subscription length per student/per course

                                          I would like to have the user be able to buy access to a particular course, yet have options how long they want access to that particular page or course. So, a student could have 30-Day access to Course One, but 60-Day access to Course 2.
