  1. Show one question at a time in quiz

    Currently all the quiz questions are displayed in one page. It will be preferable to show them one at a time using back/next button.

  2. Sensei- We need that we sell individual lessons for a huge courses.. It's very important

    We are looking for a solution where we can sell independent lessons inside a course where the course outline is divided into lessons and students can buy any lesson they want.
    We have a huge course where we will divide the course into lessons, and inside these lessons there will be the topics (it's three levels - Course -> Lesson -> Topics) sensei only has two levels (Course ->Lessons).
    We only need to show a course, and the lessons under that course, and offer the students the ability to either buy the whole course or the individual lessons inside the…

    This is not something we plan to add to Sensei. The best solution for this would be to restructure your ‘lessons’ as courses, which you can then sell individually, and use product bundles to sell a group of courses as a single product.

  3. Add ratings and reviews for courses and lessons

    Upon completion of a lesson (or the full course), the users can rate the quality (e.g., star rating system) and write a brief review. This rating system would also allow users to see course/lessons sorted by rating and read reviews for a given course/lesson to help them decide if they want to take (and pay for) it.

  4. Automate completion of lessons instead of having to manually click "complete lesson"

    Currently students must manually click the "complete lesson" button after each lesson in order for them to show as having completed the course. We are finding that this is not intuitive for the user and they must be told to click it manually.

    As a result the following has occurred:
    1. We have no guaranteed way of knowing if students completed their courses (and we want to know this so we can give them a credential)
    2. It poses customer service issues because we have to tell them to make sure they click the button
    3. Even if they did…

    I’m afraid there isn’t an effective way for Sensei to know whether a student has watched a whole video or not.

    One solution is to add a quiz, so you can test the student’s knowledge (based on the video content).

    Otherwise, you could change the button text to “Mark lesson as complete” ( Please see our tutorial on how to quickly translate words or phrases in your theme here: http://woothemes.zendesk.com/entries/22520857-quickly-translate-or-replace-wordpress-localized-site-text )

    And/Or add a message in your lesson content reminding students to click the button (you could also customise your CSS to make the button more prominent.)

  5. Sensei Theme Integration Video Tutorial (Theming)

    I can't get Sensei to look good with any other themes. It would be great if you provided a step-by-step video tutorial on how to get it looking like it should in your demo. The documentation you have right now is not very detailed.

  6. I would love it if you can extend this great idea by being able to host live training sessions.

    So people can learn even if they're not local or in the same time zone. Just need a way for them to ask questions and contribute during and after the workshop.

  7. Add more quiz functionality + an option to make it standalone

    Quiz functionality is fairly limited, and by adding more functionality Sensei can become a much better plugin.

    The quiz is connected to courses, however often people want to simply have quizzes and not the whole course. This is when the standalone quiz comes in.

    The quizzes will also have more features:
    Audio Quizzes (Great for learning languages, where a person must spell something he/she hears).
    Puzzles (For example Connect puzzles to form a sentence from some audio sentence). Let's say if the sentence is "She has been waiting" the puzzle would have 3 options for the first word :He, She,…

  8. A sidebar in Course page to see teacher bio, learners' review like Skillshare http://goo.gl/cKJdgw

    Each page should have specific sidebar to display the relevant content. I really want to include the learner's reviews right in the course sidebar instead of woocommerce product page.

    The Skillshare team did a REALLY awesome job on this point. Please check this link: http://goo.gl/cKJdgw

  9. Guest Module Completion

    Guests should have the ability to checkout course modules and give the tests (Which are free).

    When the guests are checking out the modules there should be an option for them to register so that they can save the completion status into an account OR login and save this into an existing account

  12. Think about a site which has many things to teach and many teachers.

    Think about a site which has many things to teach and many teachers.

    I'm not talking about single vs. multisites. that's another subject. :)

    Enable Sensei to work for the common hierarchies that are used in education.

    Separate Sensei by:

    Schools, Courses, Teachers, Subjects, Classes, and Work (Lessons, Exams, etc.).

    So a site could have a school of business, a school of technology, and more schools. [An internet training site would have separate schools for themes, plugins, web design, online marketing, social marketing, email marketing, etc]

    Each of those schools could obviously have many courses and many teachers.

    Teachers and…

  13. Survey - Not quiz.

    As part of our Continuing Education Courses - We always have associated quizes. We want users to be forced to take the survey before completing the course.

    This would basically be a quiz - where there are no right / wrong answers (or could be set so that every answer is correct etc...).

    Open to alternative work-arounds here... For example, could use a gravity form as a step in the course - and upon submissions, the user gets credit for that component.

  15. A leaderboard system

    A course could have a 'leaderboard' system or a 'star'/smiley face/token for advancement through the course...at different 'lessons' a reward could be given or after a certain percentage of correct answers.

  16. Create a unique sidebar with woodojo on Sensei Profile page

    Right now on the sensei profile page which has a url like this: http://www.yourwebsite.com/learner/%username% the sidebar on the right or left is not controlled by WooDojo Sidebars and hopefully in the future it can be as I would need some unique widgets here only to display on the sidebar of the logged in user and I am sure it would apply to others too. Right now there is no way to control this sidebar area? Look forward to this feature.

  17. Live lessons

    Allow teachers to give lessons in a live environment via webcast. Students could then interact via webcam/text chat etc. The lesson could be recorded to allow the student to look back over it at a later date.

  18. BadgeOS points earned per year

    Hi there I would like the total points earned Widget for BadgeOS to show the points earned for that calendar year or since the user signed up to the site for that user registered year so to speak. Right now the BadgeOS just shows a total ever which is fine but not very useful after a few years or even for applications which require courses to be refreshed each year. I would like to see the ability for the widget to display the points earned that year or even for it to be displayed on the Profile page if not…

  19. Quizes without courses

    I would like the ability to allow users to sign up to take just a quiz without any lessons and to sell quizes via WooCommerce. Also it should only allow one attempt at the quiz and then store the score for the Admin to process.

  20. GotoWebinar Integration

    I would like the ability to create registrants at GotoWebinar via their API when someone purchases a course via Sensei/WooCommerce. Once the registrant has been created, the student would have a link to the webinar on the course page. The GotoWebinar API does not allow for the creation of webinars, so when creating the course in Sensei, Sensei would ping the API, grab a list of webinars, and allow the Sensei operator to select which webinar correlates with the new Sensei course.

    All of our courses are provided via GotoWebinar, so the tie-in would be great.
