  2. 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.

  3. 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.…

  4. 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).

    26 comments  ·  Extension - Sensei Content Drip  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  8. 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).

    The Sensei team has been discussing how we can improve the quiz experience for students. We’ve come up with a first draft that enables showing the correct answers, as well as providing feedback for both correct and incorrect answers.

    It’s important to note that this is very rough and is not representative of what the final solution will look like. This is just a starting point to get the discussion going and begin to co-create a solution with everyone who has an interest in this functionality.

    To that end, here’s a link to the mock-up. You can leave feedback by clicking the “Leave Feedback” button – https://app.evrybo.com/share/project/12489/135181/oRxY05LKo1HAqAiKG1HT

  9. 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)

  10. 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.

  11. At present there is no way my clients can alter their answers after submitting. Very cumbersome!

    Can Sensei do a very quick 'fix' and allow users to alter their answers after feedback from Teachers/Trainers? At present they have to either email or use the "contact teacher" button, but then the system still has their 'wrong' answers there. Should be easy fix?

  12. Course completed page

    There should be a proper endpoint for a course. When you finish the last lesson you should be taken to a screen where it says congratulations you have now finished this course. And an option to download their certificate.

  13. Attach certificate to course completion email

    It seems logical that you get your certificate as an email attachement when a course is finished. Especially since there is already an email template for completed courses

  14. Allow images and media to be added to answer explanations

    Many questions have answers that are much better described using visuals like diagrams and images. Especially useful for science and medical based quizzes.

  18. In Analysis overview: Check how many times a student performed the quiz before it's completed

    In the learners > lessons in this cours overview there should be a column next to Grade how many times a student took the quiz before he passed the quiz.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
