  1. "Allow Comments for Lessons" on a per-course basis...

    Sensei "settings" currently allow admins to toggle "allow comments for lessons" on and off. This is great, but I'd like to be able to do this on a per-course basis.

    I'd like to be able to offer "premium" courses that would feature one-on-one feedback and interaction with students, and other courses that are "standard" self-directed courses with no feedback given.

    If it were possible, I could enable comments on the premium courses and not on the standard ones... But currently, the setting is all-or-nothing: comments on or off for all courses together.

    Any way we could get this done?

  2. Sensei Free Partial Courses

    I'm not sure if it's a part of the Sensei plugin, but a great addition to this would be to allow part of course to be free and then charge the user a quarter to halfway through a course. This would allow people to at least see some of the lessons and content in the course before determining whether or not they want to purchase the full course.

  4. add action hook sensei_start_course

    I would like to suggest a one line patch to Sensei.
    in templates/single-course/course-meta.php

    I would like to change:

    if ( $activitylogged ) {
    $is
    usertakingcourse = true;
    }

    to:
    if ( $activitylogged ) {
    $is
    usertakingcourse = true;
    doaction('senseistart_course',$args);
    }

    basically adding a hook we can use to do some external processing when a user takes a course.

    I'll give you the full details because it might be a bug you'd want to address.
    We use a multisite, sensei is installed on a subsite. Users who have accounts on the Site ID…

  5. Add functionality so Students can privately interact with teachers

    Jigsaw box is a coaching system for training people. Sensei seems to only be lacking the ability it has for students to submit homework on the same page as the course work, that is unseen by everyone but the instructor.

    I don't know if a private forum would function as well. I think if we could keep everything on the same page it would be better for each user.

  7. Allow students to enter YouTube links as part of their submitted work, allowing teachers to review and score based on the video.

    The idea is best suited to sports applications, where students are learning a particular action (like a golf swing, pool dive or whatever) can upload a video of their progress for teachers to review, score and provide feedback.

  8. Add trainees manually to courses

    From a school perspective, It's not viable if a user has to register every time they want to take a specific course, the teacher must be able to suscribe a group or a individual user

  10. Add an additional level to the course/lesson hierarchy in Sensei

    Courses, these days, typically have a finer grain to them than just course and lessons. Rather, a course consists of topics that in turn might have a number of (short) lessons associated with each topic.

  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

  12. 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!

  13. Option to remove course registration.

    On my site, I offer a lot of free maths resources. It's not viable for to offer courses via Sensei if a visitor has to register every time they want to take a specific lesson.
    Please include an option to allow courses to be freely accessed without logging in.

  14. Multi page lessons

    It'd be really helpful to have multi page lessons for topics which may have more than one subsection (for example, Area). It's not useful to have an entire course for Area alone (because that's only a small part of geometry), but the ability to have multiple pages to put subsections in (like Area of a Square, Area of a Circle, etc.) would be really helpful.

  15. Add more course levels

    As far as I can tell, Sensei is a 2-level system: Course and Lesson.

    Our courses are usually 3 levels: Course, Module, and Unit/Lesson.

    If this is not currently available (as it seems from the demos), then I suggest adding at least a 3rd level for better course organization.

    completed  ·  Sensei LMS Team responded

    Closing due to lack of activity over 2+ years. Course subscriptions can be set up using the WooCommerce Subscriptions extension. For more specifics, please submit a support ticket.

  17. Content drip or sequential delivery of course material over time

    Content Dripping is the delivery of content, courses, new material over time – in a pre-scheduled manner.

    Being able to setup up a course that drips out to new customers 'X' days (hours, minutes) after they sign up or to slowly release content so customers don't download everything and then ask for a refund.

    This could be a sensei extension

    This can be done using the content editor for a lesson and by setting a custom excerpt for the lesson. The custom excerpt ensures that course content is not displayed in any way, on the “lesson listing” screen for a course (if no custom excerpt is set, some lesson text may display in the automated excerpt).

  19. Make it easy to export Analytics Data

    I need to be able to export the data to csv so I can share the results with clients and stakeholders.

  20. Enable "Guest Checkout" for non-course products

    Sensei appears to require purchaser to create an account on checkout. This makes sense for courses, where users will have to log-in to access course content, but not necessarily for other product types. I have a number of products that I'm trying to make as easy to buy as possible, and nothing squelches an impulse purchase like having to create an account. The ability to "enable guest checkout" for non-course products would be grand.
