  1. 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

    • 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!

      • 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…

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • 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

                  • 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).

                    • 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.

                        • 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!

                            Thanks Laura. We considered this option, but decided to keep it simple to start with. If there’s high demand for two different feedback fields, we can certainly add it in future.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                                Thanks Jesse

                                I actually thought you could already do this and was surprised to find that it’s not possible. I’ve added it as an issue for our developers to look into for a future update.

                              • 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…
