  1. Sensei Quiz point label

    The current Sensei Quiz puts the point value for the question directly at the end of the question:

    Why is the sky Blue?1

    This looks like a typo or a footnote.

    It's an easy fix. Add a label before the Point value and put it above the question:

    Points Awarded: 1
    What is the color of the sky?

    This would also incentivize students...more likely to answer to win points than just having a number there.

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. Attach certificate to course completion email

    It seems logical that you get your certificate as an email attachement when a course is finished. Especially since there is already an email template for completed courses

  5. Set multiple prerequisites for lesson

    I want to create a final quiz which contains some of the questions of all lessons in a course. So i created a lesson "Final quiz" and added all the questions. However sensei only allows to link one prerequisite lesson at a time. I want the students to finish all lessons first before they can take the final quiz

  6. Question Grade 0 Still Required to Answer

    When a multiple choice question is created with the question grade as 0 the user can simply skip the question. We would like the ability to create a 0 grade question, but make it required. At least one of the options must be selected.

  7. 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…

  8. Allow extra credit points - more than 100%

    I have a few extra tasks that students can do to earn MORE than 100% on their assignments, but Sensei won't allow me to enter more points than 100%.

    I would like the option to turn that limit off.

    Thank you!

  10. Automatic feedback feedback depending on which multiple choice selection is picked

    This is something we'd really like to see in Sensei.

    Our client is wanting to give automatic feedback feedback depending on which multiple choice question they choose. A,B,C, and D would all have different sentences, letting them know what they need to look at differently or the reason why this answer isn't acceptable.

    It would be great if we could put these replies on the Edit Question page.

  11. Redirect to specific page after succesfull quiz of final lesson.

    I've noticed that many of our students are a bit confused when they have passed the last quiz of the course. It would be nice that if there is at least an option for a redirecting to specific page after final lesson quiz. For example congratulation page where you can find certificate etc. I think it is very important that students knows exactly what to do next.

  12. Add category filter to course listing page

    On the course listing/archive page, please add the ability to filter the list based on category along with the "All" and "Featured" filters that already exist. So the options would be "All" "Featured" "Category 1" "Category 2" etc.

    Otherwise, why would I bother to put courses into categories?

  13. Allow for multiple instances of course in learner accounts for recertification

    We utilize Woo Commerce and Sensei. Our customers must recertify in the same course within 2 years after passing to stay compliant. The only way we can accommodate this is to duplicate all of our courses and archive the current year (and associate with the current Woo products) so that the courses will show in the customer's sensei account when they purchase again.

  14. Course name in teacher grading a quiz email

    When a teacher does get an email about grading a quiz, he only name of the lesson in the email. Several of my teachers do have different courses and want to organise their email system.

    So please do as the name of the course in the email sent to the teacher. And if possible in the subject line.

  15. Allow Duplication Certifate Templates

    Certificate templates are manual intensive due to the drag and drop positioning of fields. Al lot of time goes into creating one. So to save time it would be great to Duplicate and already created template.

  16. "No Courses Purchased Yet" Message - My Courses Page

    Hello, on the "/my-courses" page, I'd like to display a message when the user hasn't purchased a course yet. Currently, the my courses page just displays with no content.

    Ideally we add some sort of if/then. If user has no courses, then display message ________

  17. Optional setting to let students skip lessons

    It would be great if the students don't have to learn lesson for lesson but could also skip a lesson without completing it.

  18. Improve Cetificates with Customizable Fields

    Sadly the certificates plugin is too basic to be of real use, and needs to have customizable fields that hooked to the course. This needs to be available in the admin such that a non technical users can create a course expiration date, alternative title. special course code, or course number, or other types of specialty fields. That will display on the certificate.

  20. Allow editing course affiliation in module's quick edit UI

    ... or at least show currently assigned course in the module grid list.

    Modules seem to loose their assigned course when you edit their slug or name using quick edit, and now i have to open each module individually to re-assign it.
