  1. Provide "Add all" button for quiz questions

    It's currently quite a chore to add all the questions from a category to a quiz. An "Add all" button would be incredibly convenient.

  3. 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. Course name in teacher grading a quiz email

    When a teacher does get an email about grading a quiz, he only name of the lesson in the email. Several of my teachers do have different courses and want to organise their email system.

    So please do as the name of the course in the email sent to the teacher. And if possible in the subject line.

  6. 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
    ....

  7. 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...

  8. Reorganize lessons BETWEEN modules in Order Lessons

    Currently, you can only organize Lessons within a Module and not transfer them between Modules. It would be a huge improvement to allow the drag and drop of Lessons wherever you want them in this window. Also, Modules do not appear here unless there is already a Lesson assigned to them. All Modules should appear whether or not they have a Lesson assigned to enable easy drag and drop.

  9. 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…

  10. Permanent certificate access.

    We are using Groups/Sensei with expiry dates on courses. So currently if a person subscribes to a course they get access for a certain period of time to the content and then it expires. Access to the certificate expires with it.

    Is there a way we can give people permanent access to their certificates that are created.

  11. Don't use tabs in the UI, because it sucks on mobile devices

    Hi.

    I would like to request that the learner-profile template, does not use tabs to display the current courses and completed courses, because tab pages suck on mobile devices.

    Why not simply display a section with Active Courses, followed by a section with completed courses beneath each other, which would look nicer on mobile devices.

    See this example screenshot..

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3809836/learner-profile-mobile-device.jpg

    PS. It is in Danish.

  12. The option to have the quiz load on the same page as the content

    Currently the quiz loads on it's own page, but I think it would be handy to at least have the option for the quiz to be loaded on the content page. Especially if students require another review of the content to answer the question. (saves them having to navigate backwards).

  13. Creating paid courses on the fly within Sensei without needing to create a product manually in WooCommerce

    Make selling the products easier by adding the selling info (price...) on the course page itself within Sensei, once this is done the course is up for sale (even if it meant creating a product behind the scene), this will ease the process and eliminates the duplicate work. Going through this duplication effort is not scalable especially in a marketplace setting.

  15. 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.

    :)

  16. 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.

  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. Sensei Test Submission

    We need a way to stop students from submitting their tests for grading until they have answered all of the questions in the lesson that they are taking.
    Some of our students are pressing enter on their "keyboard" on their keyboard or the "complete lesson" button by accident before they have finished answering all of the questions.
    This is a pretty big issue for us.
    Thanks!

  19. Limit the number of times a quiz can be taken

    We need to limit the number of times a student can take a quiz. For example, if they fail the quiz 3 times, they should not be able to take it again. (can make it so that the admin can override this - and reopen... but by default there should be a maximum number of attempts that can be set).

  20. Sensei learner e-mailnotification when quiz is graded manually

    I don't want learners to recieve an e-mail every time they complete a lesson or when a quiz is auto graded.

    I only want to send an e-mailnotification when a test or assignment is graded manually.

    So we need extra option in the settings!
