  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. add ability to branch lesson flow or path

    Right now all lessons are available or a linear path can be structured. Difficult to branch lesson path other than with prereq.

    How about lesson path dependent on pre test results, or student interest, or based on lesson interaction (story based lesson with branching paths depending on response to situation), or the basic loop to lesson with quiz answers worked out if not done correctly.

    This would add a level of interactivity and the course would appear to change to meet the student's needs, rather than a linear presentation of material and practice questions.

  4. Built-in support for protected Amazon S3 video code.

    For Sensei to really be a sophisticated tool to offer online classes and workshops, it really has to offer a means to provide students with protected video. Hosting through Vimeo Pro, while nice, has limitations and isn't the smoothly professional delivery model that more experienced users seek--and that reflects a level or professionalism from the instructor. I find it shocking that Sensei supports Funny or Die videos but not S3--I mean, honestly, that's shameful. This product has SO MANY great features and would be integrated on my site today, but regardless of how many themes I chose or work-arounds I…

  5. Bulk Upload CSV to Populate or Edit Courses, Lessons or Quizzes

    I have tons of courses, lessons and quizzes I want to add and the wordpress dashboard is not very friendly to inputting large amounts of data at once because of its segmented back end. This would really help user workflow and setup for a website looking to migrate to your system.

  6. 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.

  7. Users should be able to purchase individual lessons within courses in addition to the entire course.

  8. Open/Close Dates and Time Duration

    Considering Classroom Educators: Allow teacher to set a date on which the test/quiz will be available and a deadline to complete the test. Also, allow teacher to set a length of time to complete. This would be more suited for educators who meet up with their students so their lessons are live. Having the testing and scoring completed online would be terrific.

  9. Custom Content

    It would be great if you customize the content that it shown when lessons/courses are complated.

    e.g. if you complete lesson x you get a message congratulating that is relevent to the contents of lesson x

    eg. if you complete course x, you get a message congratulating you (that is relevant to course x)

    If for one would like to be able to add relevant calls to action, ads or affiliate links at the end of each lesson/course.

  10. 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)

  11. Sensei mass edit/create: quiz percentage, questions, lessons...

    Hi, my first course in Sensei got 54 lessons, and to go individually setting the quiz percentage is almost maddening.

    Please make settings for mass edit:
    - Quiz percentage global site or course
    - Mass create lessons (excel table import or something)
    - Mass create quizzes (excel table import or something)
    - Any other mass operations

  13. 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!

  14. URL friendly (SEO)

    Having a more friendly URL (SEO)!
    For example, instead of "/lesson/lesson-one /" be "/name-course/lesson-one/".

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. add ability to import existing courses from moodle

  19. I'd like to see the ability to add a SCORM-compliant module, PDF viewer

    Adding video is great, I'd like to be able to add a 'SCORM-compliant' (actually TINCAN would be better) module to a page that would allow you to run complex HTML-based or Flash-based learning scenarios from Wordpress rather than a CMS such as Moodle.

    Other options would be a mp3 audio file (may be possible now, haven't tried yet).

    Allow the upload of a PDF, with a nice 'flipbook' viewer and scroll-viewer option
