  1. Add ability for multiple authors / co-authors of a lesson or course

    A lot of lessons or courses nowadays are co-written by multiple experts. It would be great to have the ability to list more than one author / co-authors on lessons and courses.

    Thanks Leslie

    Would you see this as a simple text list, so you could add any names, or would you be able to select users with the ‘teacher’ role only?

  2. Users should be able to purchase individual lessons within courses in addition to the entire course.

  3. Sensei Test Submission

    We need a way to stop students from submitting their tests for grading until they have answered all of the questions in the lesson that they are taking.
    Some of our students are pressing enter on their "keyboard" on their keyboard or the "complete lesson" button by accident before they have finished answering all of the questions.
    This is a pretty big issue for us.
    Thanks!

  4. Download list of e-mail addresses of learners taking a course

    I would like to be able to download a list of e-mail addresses of learners taking a particular course!

    For examle 30 learners take course A. I click on 'Learner Management'. I click on the 'manage learners' button at course A.

    There I would like to see button 'Download CSV file' to quickly collect the e-mail address and first names of all students who bought course A.

    If I could quickly import the learners e-mail addresses I could easy make a mail list in MailChimp to communicate with students taking that particular course A.

  5. 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.

    I need to make quiz with timer counting up and give a level of success based on % of good answers AND time to complete.

  7. add ability to branch lesson flow or path

    Right now all lessons are available or a linear path can be structured. Difficult to branch lesson path other than with prereq.

    How about lesson path dependent on pre test results, or student interest, or based on lesson interaction (story based lesson with branching paths depending on response to situation), or the basic loop to lesson with quiz answers worked out if not done correctly.

    This would add a level of interactivity and the course would appear to change to meet the student's needs, rather than a linear presentation of material and practice questions.

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

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

  9. Class Questions and Answers

    I love the idea to have a place for students to ask instructors questions. What I would like to see is a "Q/A" section for each module or lesson (depending on how you want to do your Q/A).

    This QA section would allow students to post questions and vote up questions if they have similar questions. The students should be able to post test, images (upload), videos (vimeo, youtube), .pdf, .doc, .pages, or whatever you want to allow them to upload.

    There should be an option to allow students to answer other student questions or only allow instructors to answer…

  10. 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?

  11. Auto Answer Feedback: Different feedback for wrong answer and correct answer

    I really happy you added the Auto Answer Feedback, but I'm not using it since I need to types of feedback:

    One if the answer is correct, and one is the answer the student gave is not correct.

    Using this approach, I can really give the feedback the student needs and sent him or her back to a specific lesson..

    I'm now using SlickQuiz, but love to transfer it all to Sensei
    Thanks!

    under review  ·  Sensei LMS Team responded

    Thanks Laura. We considered this option, but decided to keep it simple to start with. If there’s high demand for two different feedback fields, we can certainly add it in future.

  13. Must get question correct before progressing or similar

    Rather than waiting until the end to find out how many questions were answered correctly, in situations where user must get all questions right, do not allow them to continue on until they have the correct answer. Would need a next button for each question or a way to auto mark as you go. Or when they are shown the questions they got right and wrong when they retry the ones they got right remain and they just need to redo the ones they got wrong.

  14. Course "Pass" Expiration

    Really need a simple function that on a user completing a course it not only adds the date of completion but importantly allows an expiry date to be added eg. 1 year. This will mean that just before the year is up an email is sent informing the user that they are going to need to resit their test. This will ensure the user is always up to date with the course if it changes in that time or they have forgotten some of it.

  17. Improve Cetificates with Customizable Fields

    Sadly the certificates plugin is too basic to be of real use, and needs to have customizable fields that hooked to the course. This needs to be available in the admin such that a non technical users can create a course expiration date, alternative title. special course code, or course number, or other types of specialty fields. That will display on the certificate.

  20. 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
