    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Allow course to have more than one Teacher

          Like title, give the capabilities to create a course with two o more teachers.

          In this way, two teachers can work at the same common project.

          Example:

          How to make a Course by X and Y
          Lesson 1 by X
          Lesson 2 by Y
          Lesson 3 by Y
          Lesson 4 by X
          ....

            • 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.

              • Student groups

                - Trainees can be assigned to one or more Groups,
                - Courses can be assigned to one or more Groups (auto-enrollment)
                - Analysis shows colective results groups (grades, etc)

                • 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.

                  • 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…

                    • Export Lessons and Quizzes Easily

                      So right now you have to export everything from your site, the lessons, quizzes, courses, and questions all for one lesson or quiz, etc. Now some of us work with other teachers and collaborate and it makes it difficult for the receiver to have to delete all the unwanted lessons and such. Can you make a quick export for lessons and courses that make it easier to send and use.

                      • Register with course key

                        To be able to use Sensei at our school students need to be able to register on courses with a course key given by their teacher.

                          • add ability to branch lesson flow or path

                            Right now all lessons are available or a linear path can be structured. Difficult to branch lesson path other than with prereq.

                            How about lesson path dependent on pre test results, or student interest, or based on lesson interaction (story based lesson with branching paths depending on response to situation), or the basic loop to lesson with quiz answers worked out if not done correctly.

                            This would add a level of interactivity and the course would appear to change to meet the student's needs, rather than a linear presentation of material and practice questions.

                              • 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…

                                • Assign Learners to Teachers

                                  Is there anyway to assign learners to teachers? I will have a set of teachers that will cover a defined set of students, while the students go through multiple lessons.

                                  Teacher A will have student group A and teacher B will have student group B, but both students may go through the same lesson at the same time. I was wondering if there was a simple way to assign the teachers to the students so that grading is easier.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        :)

                                        • Better Gradebook

                                          So I would like a better grade book so that way I can get rid of my current grading system. I need to be able to easily type in grades where there would be classes, each class has students, and then there would be sort of like an excel sheet enter in the grades that aren't done in sensei. I still have normal graded assignments that I need to put in. I don't want to create lessons either to just type in a grade. Attendance would be pretty nice too, but lets take this one step at a time I…
