  1. Add a discussion section where the cohort can share their ideas, questions, learnings, etc.

    I need people to be able to publicly, not just privately, add to discussions so the whole cohort can learn from these posts

  2. 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
    ....

  3. Frontend Teacher Interface similar UDEMY

    I would like to be able to see the Sensei with the function of Frontend Teacher Interface, so we can build something similar to Udemy or Lynda.

    And Sensei Statistics visible in the frontend with shotcodes and more...

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Send an email a month after last login for current members

    Send an email a month after last login for current members. Basically add the trigger to use the user's last login date with the sending delay of 1 month or 35 days for all current Subscribers

  11. Allow for multiple instances of course in learner accounts for recertification

    We utilize Woo Commerce and Sensei. Our customers must recertify in the same course within 2 years after passing to stay compliant. The only way we can accommodate this is to duplicate all of our courses and archive the current year (and associate with the current Woo products) so that the courses will show in the customer's sensei account when they purchase again.

  12. Learners record number of hours spent learning

    Hi
    I'm looking for an e-learning platform, where the learner can record the number of hours they spend watching videos/reading etc - is this possible with Sensei. My learners need to record the number of hours spent per year on Continuing Professional Development for their professional body registration.

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

    Bumping this idea. We should have the ability to sell individual lessons for a cheaper price point. Original:

    "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,…

  14. university/ marketplace

    It will be nice to have a marketplace extension where the plugin serves a a marketplace to teachers and students similar to a product or service marketplace. The teachers are the vendors and the students are the customers. The teachers can bill for their course and the marketplace receives a commission.

  16. Import lesson comments to bbpress Form => Topic

    Now that we have Buddypress integration (yay!), the final step is to kick-start those empty forums with the discussion already posted by students to existing Sensei lessons.

    I've tried a plugin called "bbPress Post Topics" which works beautifully for blog posts. It creates a new "topic" for any post in a forum of your choice, then converts all post comments to "replies" in that forum topic.

    It even allows for the appropriate topic to replace the default WP comments system at the end of each post.

    The trouble is, it doesn't appear to work with Sensei lessons, I'm guessing because…

  17. 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....

  18. 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.

    :)

  19. 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.

  20. Integrate SCORM-and-AICC-compliant lessons

    Integrate SCORM-and-AICC-compliant lessons developed with such tools as Macromedia Captivate or Litmos. (Lessons are HTML5 or Flash - just need to pass the grade back to the LMS).
