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.
I’m pleased to report that Sensei LMS import functionality was released in version 3.3 – https://senseilms.com/2020/07/23/sensei-lms-3-3-import-courses-lessons-questions/
This would be a very useful feature, because as it stands now Sensei is a great LMS for new course providers. But if anyone is moving from another LMS or wants to upload complete courses in one go then it is impossible without purchasing an expensive plugin. Not everyone uses Sensei to make profit so a paid plugin by an external company is not very accessible to all. I want to use Sensei to help a teacher make her LMS for students who can’t attend normal schools. No one pays anything and no profit is made at all. I tried many LMSs and Sensei is superb for free, minimal courses. But the number of individual lessons I have to publish is making me reconsider... either I put in the extra time, or use an alternative plugin. Please give me a third option by adding this feature to the core Sensei plugin. Thank you.
I am curently using the http://wppluginsforyou.com/product/excel-to-sensei-wordpress-plugin/ and it works great but is totally overpriced for what it is. Would like to see the same functionality build into Sensei as part of the plugin.

just came to know about a plugin that lets you bulk import quiz questions . Watch the video http://wppluginsforyou.com/product/excel-to-sensei-wordpress-plugin/
I have more than 8000 (eight thousand) questions on my e-learning courses. So, I have an assessment part for each lesson and students have to take this quizzes to complete their courses. However, uploading these questions taking too much time. I have to say that I have purchased Sensei just to work sustainable with other Woo Plugins such as Membership and Subscription. But it makes me slower. Uploading questions really hard.
CSV Import/Export plugins don't work really well with this. There are issues with Modules and Content sections. Also, all of the embed code needs to be edited to remove the special characters.
In general, setting up Lessons in Sensei is a very painful process as you first need to select the Course, Publish and then Select the Module and then Publish again. This makes it take a very long time to set up a lot of Lessons.
Please streamline this process by allowing Lesson information to be inputed in a table format of some sort.
Need a way to quickly import multiple questions for lesson quizzes, assign a lesson category and prevent duplicate questions via CSV or other file type. I have over 1000 questions to add and it is literally taking me years to add them manually.

This is halfway doable with existing plugins like WP All Import Pro, but in my experience I can't add Lessons to more than one Class without manually editing each Lesson. This is a pretty bothersome process above trivial amounts of Lessons.
