  1. Sensei sidebar to display the modules and lessons of current course

    A sidebar for use on all course/module/lesson/quiz pages of a course that shows the hierarchical content of that particular course would be nice to provide course overview to the learner. In order to make it possible to add this as a widget to the page template it should be dynamical, because the widget can only be placed once in the page template, but has to a show different content for every course.
    EVery other learning tool provides this kind of dynamic course content sidebar menu and I think Sensei should too.

    • Student Note-Taking

      I would like to have an option for students to take notes while they watch the lesson video. They would then be able to submit those notes as part of their coursework. Since I do regular notebook checks anyway I think this could streamline things some. Ideally, these notes would auto-backup to the database so they'd be restored if a user's browser crashed and they needed to return to the lesson. I've seen these note-taking features before on other websites, but I'm not sure how to add them to my site. You can print, email, or save the notes to…

      • Role and Capability

        Hello,

        It would be nice if the admin can have the option for role and capability management for the other teachers. For example, the admin can make it that teachers can grade and make "notes", but it is not fully published unless the admin verifies it.

        In other words, admin can manipulate the user privileges of teachers or put them in user groups with certain privileges. Privileges can be add, delete, edit, pending (admin must verify).

        I hope you guys can do this.

        This would entice larger institutions to use this platform.

        Great job with the plug in thus far!

        • 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…

          • Auto Advance After Completing a Lesson

            Subject says all .. but for those who want specifics:
            1. user clicks on "complete lesson" button
            2. sends user to next lesson
            3. possible addition of feedback mechanism: maybe a completion success modal that indicates that the previous lesson was completed hides after a few seconds)

            • Need a Sitemap and to Manually List Courses in Logical Order

              Once a site gets large, there are simply too many courses and lessons. There needs to be a simple, logical sitemap of the courses/lessons.

              Also, when you create a link to Courses, it draws a random, hodgepodge of data based on 'last entry' of Wordpress. It is absolutely critical that we be able to move courses into the hierarchy required so they draw in a logical order.

              • List of non purchesed courses

                From marketing point of view it would be great to show my customer all courses that he didn't buy yet.

                Great marketer Mark Joyner did it on his legendary platform Simpleology. Courses that I payed hed status "unlocked", and courses waiting for me to buy were
                locked".

                This idea created open loop in my mind and big anticipation for what is to come...

                In my opinion it wolud be very profitable for every Sensei platform owner to be able to display list of non purshesed courses.

                  • Adaptive Testing Feature

                    I'd love to have an adaptive testing feature for the questions in Sensei. This would use the Categories of the questions with and additional Hardness value. A dynamic quiz could be created from the question bank which pulls from the different categories starting with the easiest questions from each category. As the student correctly answers the easy questions, medium level questions are then entered into the quiz, when the medium level questions are correctly answered hard level questions implemented. Wrong answered questions would be resubmitted in the question queue until they are answered correctly. There could be some analytics associated…

                    • Dynamic Quiz Created from Incorrectly Answered Questions

                      I'd love to have the ability to place a quiz at the end of a course which pulls in the incorrectly answered questions from the courses lesson's quizzes and makes a quiz based on these incorrectly answered questions. i.e. If a course has 5 lessons and the student gets 3 questions wrong on each of the lesson quizzes, a quiz at the end of the course (maybe placed in a recap lesson) would be populated by the 15 questions which the student incorrectly answered.

                        • 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…

                              • Lesson specific "complete lesson" button

                                Hello

                                Ive noticed in the sensei plugin, when you include a "complete lesson" button for lessons without Quizzes, the "complete lesson" button still appears on lessons with a quiz.

                                I dont think this is very logical as you actually want people to take the quizes

                                So a "complete lesson" button for specific lessons would come in rather usefull

                                • Sensei- We need that we sell individual lessons for a huge courses.. It's very important

                                  We are looking for a solution where we can sell independent lessons inside a course where the course outline is divided into lessons and students can buy any lesson they want.
                                  We have a huge course where we will divide the course into lessons, and inside these lessons there will be the topics (it's three levels - Course -> Lesson -> Topics) sensei only has two levels (Course ->Lessons).
                                  We only need to show a course, and the lessons under that course, and offer the students the ability to either buy the whole course or the individual lessons inside the…

                                  • Member Curated Course

                                    I would LOVE to allow members to curate their own set of videos to create a "course" for their personnel. Then the backend would be the same as Dojo is now - I could see which videos members were grouping together and how many people have chosen to participate in that course. PLEASE?!

                                    • Restrict course to a set number of devices

                                      To ensure our customers don't just share your course by sending it to their friends, have the option of restricting it to, say, 2 devices, so that the customer can use it and not abuse your trust by sending a group email out offering it to them too.

                                      • Allow user to sell their courses on a Site running SENSEI - like UDEMY

                                        I build a lot of complicated portals and ecommerce websites. So it comes that somebody asked me to build a site like udemy where user can upload their own courses and sell them to earn some money. I am pretty sure it should be possible to implement that into SENSEI with EASE and let it work with WooCommerce :-)

                                          This is something we’re planning to develop as an extension that will integrate with Sensei and Product Vendors allowing teachers to register and create/sell their own courses.

                                          We don’t have an estimated date for starting work on this yet, but we will update this idea when we do.

                                        • Change all <input> buttons to <button type="submit">

                                          Sensei buttons are the worst part about theming Sensei. This is because there markup is hardcoded into the Sensei classes and they are defined at input buttons.

                                          You can add CSS overrides to style the color, border and padding,,, but that is about it as the type of <input> does not support most of the CSS standard. If for example you wanted to add a font based icon to the button this is not possible.

                                          Typically you would use the CSS:before property to append the icon to the element, but the CSS:before property is not supported on an input tag.…
