  1. 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

  2. "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 ________

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. Learners record number of hours spent learning

    Hi
    I'm looking for an e-learning platform, where the learner can record the number of hours they spend watching videos/reading etc - is this possible with Sensei. My learners need to record the number of hours spent per year on Continuing Professional Development for their professional body registration.

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

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

  8. 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?

  10. Allow course to have more than one Teacher

    Like title, give the capabilities to create a course with two o more teachers.

    In this way, two teachers can work at the same common project.

    Example:

    How to make a Course by X and Y
    Lesson 1 by X
    Lesson 2 by Y
    Lesson 3 by Y
    Lesson 4 by X
    ....

  11. Frontend Teacher Interface similar UDEMY

    I would like to be able to see the Sensei with the function of Frontend Teacher Interface, so we can build something similar to Udemy or Lynda.

    And Sensei Statistics visible in the frontend with shotcodes and more...

  12. Add a MY CERTIFICATES TAB

    Add a MY CERTIFICATES tab to Sensei, so the student can access their certificates and print them out from there anytime they want.

  13. 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).

  14. 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.

  15. 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).

  16. Add Learning Paths

    A building block approach to learning that helps your students reach their goals. Let's say you have 5 courses all on the same topic but geared towards different levels of learners. 2 of them are for beginners, 2 for intermediate and 1 for experts. If someone completes all 5 courses they have completed that path. Maybe tie it to badges but absolutely necessary for anyone offering any type of certifications, etc....

    Sensei LMS Team responded

    I like the idea, but how does it differ from course categories. Would appreciate some feedback on that :)

  17. Creating paid courses on the fly within Sensei without needing to create a product manually in WooCommerce

    Make selling the products easier by adding the selling info (price...) on the course page itself within Sensei, once this is done the course is up for sale (even if it meant creating a product behind the scene), this will ease the process and eliminates the duplicate work. Going through this duplication effort is not scalable especially in a marketplace setting.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
