  1. 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).

  3. Sensei - Sent private message to learner

    To sent a private message to a learner, you create a new message and insert the learners username (person who will receive the message) in the 'Message sent by:' box in Message Information.
    Then you insert the teachers username (person who writes the message) in the 'Message received by:' box. The explanation in the interface seems to be the other way around. I attached a screenshot on how we filled the fields.

    1. Private message teacher box autofilled when teacher is logged in with his/her account:
    Can't teachers box be autofilled or set to the logged in user by default?…

  4. Add ability for multiple authors / co-authors of a lesson or course

    A lot of lessons or courses nowadays are co-written by multiple experts. It would be great to have the ability to list more than one author / co-authors on lessons and courses.

  6. Download list of e-mail addresses of learners taking a course

    I would like to be able to download a list of e-mail addresses of learners taking a particular course!

    For examle 30 learners take course A. I click on 'Learner Management'. I click on the 'manage learners' button at course A.

    There I would like to see button 'Download CSV file' to quickly collect the e-mail address and first names of all students who bought course A.

    If I could quickly import the learners e-mail addresses I could easy make a mail list in MailChimp to communicate with students taking that particular course A.

  7. Must get question correct before progressing or similar

    Rather than waiting until the end to find out how many questions were answered correctly, in situations where user must get all questions right, do not allow them to continue on until they have the correct answer. Would need a next button for each question or a way to auto mark as you go. Or when they are shown the questions they got right and wrong when they retry the ones they got right remain and they just need to redo the ones they got wrong.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. Auto Answer Feedback: Different feedback for wrong answer and correct answer

    I really happy you added the Auto Answer Feedback, but I'm not using it since I need to types of feedback:

    One if the answer is correct, and one is the answer the student gave is not correct.

    Using this approach, I can really give the feedback the student needs and sent him or her back to a specific lesson..

    I'm now using SlickQuiz, but love to transfer it all to Sensei
    Thanks!

  12. Matching: New Type of Question for Quizzes

    It'd be great to be able to create matching exercises (two columns, same number of items, one to one relationship) using Sensei.

  13. 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.

  14. Great ability for developers to customize templates

    I find myself unsatisfied with Sensei plugin when I discovered how limiting the ability to theme the content output actually is. It is EXTREMELY difficult, even when using action hooks and filters, to modify what content Sensei displays. For example, you can't specify if you want an excerpt or the full content displayed for lessons on a single course archive page. This is particularly true when it comes to using extensions, such as Modules; in that situation you can only show a simple link. The content is physically in a database and accessible, so please let developers extend capabilities by…

  15. Adding a link/button to Print and View the Certificate after passing the quiz

    View Certificate LINK or BUTTON, to display on the quiz page after completing the quiz.
    (Right now View Certificate link is displayed on the single course page and in My Courses page under 'Completed Courses').

    It takes 3 clicks to get back to the course page and is not obvious to the student that is there. Is also a very small link that says "view certificate" and it does not look like a button. It would be nice that after completing the course/quiz that button to print the Certificate will come up automatically. With the option to View it and…

  16. 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…

  17. 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.…

  18. If a lesson is renamed and the slug is updated to reflect that change the quiz associated with that lesson still uses the old slug.

    If a lesson is renamed and the slug is updated to reflect that change the quiz associated with that lesson still uses the old slug. The quiz needs to automatically have its slug updated or a option to manually update the slug for the quiz

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
