  1. Be able to see WHO has completed a specific course

    It is not possible to see what students have completed a specific course if you have more than one course. In analysis only the number of completed courses is given. The only way to see who has completed what is to click on each student and take a manual note. Basic need!

  2. Shortcodes for ALL THE THINGS

    Free us from the tyranny Sensei theming! Free us from the endless free courses on learning to edit PHP. Build us shortcodes for EVERYTHING (CoursePress by WPMUdev does this) so that we can build and style layouts as we please using the WP editor!

    Can I get a hell yeah?

  5. I'd like to see a way to include an image in the quiz question.

    For example, a map or graph which is associated with the question. I think this has many applications across subject areas and as many internet-based courses are going to use video and images to teach, there is a lot of room and need for identifying and analyzing visuals and images to demonstrate understanding.

  6. Email notifications

    On completion of a course, send an email to the trainer/assessor to advise there is a course to be marked. It would be perfect to allow a different email address for each course to allow for different trainers.

    Also send an email to the participant on completion of the course with a standard notification email that could be set up for the course.

  7. Sorting Courses/Lessons

    I purchased Sensei and I have to say that it is an amazing plugin. While going through the various processes I have encountered a little bit of a hiccup. The courses are handled as posts as far as chronological order. I would like a way to sort them without having to go through and edit the published time to reflect the alphabetical order I desire.

    Is there a way that I am overlooking to accomplish this?

    Thanks,

  8. 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.

  9. Completing lessons moves you into next lesson

    If you don't have a quiz for a lesson, it would be nice if when you click the complete lesson button it either:

    Shows a message saying, do you want to move o the next lesson (including the lesson excerpt)

    Or

    Moves you forward automatically

    What do others think?

    Cheers

  10. Let users mark a course as complete without taking a quiz

    For some courses a quiz is not appropriate. It would be great to allow a lesson-specific 'mark as complete' button, similar to that available for entire courses.

  11. 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

  13. Give each course its own Forum, Events, and News

    No wordpress LMS has the ability to integrate the course with forums, events, uploaded files, and news or notifications. Then another important aspect is an archive page for each of these which shows the student the items he has access to. If this was possible then Sensei would be an extremely powerful tool, and I would be your best friend. No other LMS has these features which are SO important

    If we put ourselves in the teachers shoes, we want to be able to give notifications to only one class, to make events for one class, and have a forum.…

  14. Quiz questions with html formatting?

    I'd like the quiz questions to be formattable in html as some of my quiz questions are long and need to be formatted into paragraphs or lists.

  15. Ability to create multiple types of quiz questions.

    Having single answer multiple choice questions is nice, but the ability to also create multiple answer questions would be extremely helpful (ie. "select all that apply").

  16. possibility to add more than one correct answer to multiple choice questions.

    It is not possible to include multiple "right" answers in Sensei's multiple choice question type. We have a serious need to be able to create multiple choice questions in which there is more than one right answer. Will you be able to add this functionality?

  17. Ability to send emails to students based on progress with a course.

    Hi I would love the feature to be able to send emails to customers to remind the to follow lessons. eg. if a student has not made any progress i would love to be able to send an email to stimulate progress.

    This way I hope that students will complete courses quicker and i can sell them new courses.

  18. Export Lessons and Quizzes Easily

    So right now you have to export everything from your site, the lessons, quizzes, courses, and questions all for one lesson or quiz, etc. Now some of us work with other teachers and collaborate and it makes it difficult for the receiver to have to delete all the unwanted lessons and such. Can you make a quick export for lessons and courses that make it easier to send and use.

  19. List of non purchesed courses

    From marketing point of view it would be great to show my customer all courses that he didn't buy yet.

    Great marketer Mark Joyner did it on his legendary platform Simpleology. Courses that I payed hed status "unlocked", and courses waiting for me to buy were
    locked".

    This idea created open loop in my mind and big anticipation for what is to come...

    In my opinion it wolud be very profitable for every Sensei platform owner to be able to display list of non purshesed courses.

  20. Create links to go to next lesson within Quiz

    The current Quiz feature looks great, but it's really odd to make the user go BACK to the lesson to then get to the next lesson after they pass.

    Would be great if the user could automatically move to the next lesson after they PASS.
