  1. 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).

  2. 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!

  3. 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).

  4. 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?…

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  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. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Better Analytics and Structure and Information

    I have multiple classes, Period 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. I really need to be able to see the analytics for just a specific class at times. I also need to be able to see how long a student is actually spending reading a course and taking a quiz so I know if the student is actually trying and not just going straight to the test. It will help to give me a better understanding of what might be going wrong. I also think some charts or something would be nice.
