  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.)

    • 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....

      • Give each course its own Forum, Events, and News

        No wordpress LMS has the ability to integrate the course with forums, events, uploaded files, and news or notifications. Then another important aspect is an archive page for each of these which shows the student the items he has access to. If this was possible then Sensei would be an extremely powerful tool, and I would be your best friend. No other LMS has these features which are SO important

        If we put ourselves in the teachers shoes, we want to be able to give notifications to only one class, to make events for one class, and have a forum.…

        • BadgeOS points earned per year

          Hi there I would like the total points earned Widget for BadgeOS to show the points earned for that calendar year or since the user signed up to the site for that user registered year so to speak. Right now the BadgeOS just shows a total ever which is fine but not very useful after a few years or even for applications which require courses to be refreshed each year. I would like to see the ability for the widget to display the points earned that year or even for it to be displayed on the Profile page if not…

          • Control the tabs on the my course page and profile page

            Right now the my-courses page and the profile page has tabs for active courses and completed courses and I would love a third tab to show the Achievements and/or points from BadgeOS. Infact in reality the BadgeOS tab of achievements would show first in my scenario so controlling the order of these tabs would be important. Adding a third tab here would allow me to show the stats to the user in a simple way and mostly the stats would be the achievements / points they have earned. Most of the work related applications for Sensei I have been involved…

            • Create a unique sidebar with woodojo on Sensei Profile page

              Right now on the sensei profile page which has a url like this: http://www.yourwebsite.com/learner/%username% the sidebar on the right or left is not controlled by WooDojo Sidebars and hopefully in the future it can be as I would need some unique widgets here only to display on the sidebar of the logged in user and I am sure it would apply to others too. Right now there is no way to control this sidebar area? Look forward to this feature.

              • Open the Course Certificates in a new Window

                Right now the course certificates open in the same window across the entire website and not in a new tab window which would be preferred. When on the Sensei site my users get a little lost (not a web savvy userbase) when the certificates open in the same window and their position on the site is lost as the certificate PDF loads. A simple option to open in a new window from the profile, and course dashboards of Sensei would be great. look forward to this feature.

                • 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).

                        • Customize "Mark as Complete" button to show after delay timer finishes

                          Not everyone can go at the pace which the course was set to drip. So if the completion of the previous lesson trigged the timer for the appearance of the next lesson's "mark as complete" button, that would solve the pace issue.

                          So lets say that a lesson needs at least 2 days to complete. In the edit post dashboard there could be an option "show x (minutes | days | months) after prerequisite was completed"

                          So no matter when the course began, the next lesson can only be accessed when that button appears.

                          Hope that makes sense

                            • 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.

                              • Exportation of answers from a quiz.

                                We should be able to export all the answers for a quiz or question, we should also be able to export them by date range. Many people using Sensei do so for education, and educators as well as their funders often want to see an aggregate view of all answers for questions.

                                • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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!

                                      • Integration with sensei and booking extension

                                        Sensei is a powerful extension of woocommerce, but i have this need/idea:

                                        The idea is integrate the booking extension to enable the lesson/course only on the date/time the user booking the service/course.

                                        In my case, i need this integration because i have a button to an external source, wich is necessary to activate only in the time of booking.

                                        :)
