    • 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!

          • 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.

              • 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…

                • Course Expiration

                  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.

                  • 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…

                    • 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!

                      • Bulk upload learners to course

                        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.

                        • 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.

                                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.

                                  • 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.)

                                    • Better Analytics and Structure and Information

                                      I have multiple classes, Period 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. I really need to be able to see the analytics for just a specific class at times. I also need to be able to see how long a student is actually spending reading a course and taking a quiz so I know if the student is actually trying and not just going straight to the test. It will help to give me a better understanding of what might be going wrong. I also think some charts or something would be nice.

                                      • 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…

                                        • Show grades on student dashboard - crucial feature

                                          Right now I see it says complete or in progress on the my courses area of the plugin but I do feel it should show the results and grades to the student also on their user side dashboard – if the student dashboard could get a little more feature rich possibly. I do feel this is a fundamental feature to be honest. A student should have a record of all their grades on their account in Sensei - not just complete or in progress. I mentioned this at the last blog update here: http://www.woothemes.com/2013/05/sensei-1-3-0-questioned-and-graded/
