  1. 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…

  2. 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?…

  3. Multiple teachers for a single course, I think that is mandatory!

    Today is common to have 2 or more professors involved in one course, is very important to have this option for a e-learning system.

  5. Add REST API endpoints for courses, lessons, modules etc.

    With WordPress 4.7, I think this is almost mandatory, isn't it?

  6. 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.

  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. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

    :)

  15. Course completed page

    There should be a proper endpoint for a course. When you finish the last lesson you should be taken to a screen where it says congratulations you have now finished this course. And an option to download their certificate.

  16. 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!

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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).
