  1. The option to have the quiz load on the same page as the content

    Currently the quiz loads on it's own page, but I think it would be handy to at least have the option for the quiz to be loaded on the content page. Especially if students require another review of the content to answer the question. (saves them having to navigate backwards).

  2. Permanent certificate access.

    We are using Groups/Sensei with expiry dates on courses. So currently if a person subscribes to a course they get access for a certain period of time to the content and then it expires. Access to the certificate expires with it.

    Is there a way we can give people permanent access to their certificates that are created.

  3. Limit the number of times a quiz can be taken

    We need to limit the number of times a student can take a quiz. For example, if they fail the quiz 3 times, they should not be able to take it again. (can make it so that the admin can override this - and reopen... but by default there should be a maximum number of attempts that can be set).

  4. Integration with sensei and booking extension

    Sensei is a powerful extension of woocommerce, but i have this need/idea:

    The idea is integrate the booking extension to enable the lesson/course only on the date/time the user booking the service/course.

    In my case, i need this integration because i have a button to an external source, wich is necessary to activate only in the time of booking.

    :)

  5. If a quiz is NOT passed, take the student back to the lesson to try again. Currently students have to hit reset, which isn't clear.

    When a student doesn't pass a auto graded quiz. The message is displayed at the top telling them they didn't pass. They can look at their questions and see how they did. But it isn't clear to reset to try again.

    Maybe have a setting to force the student back to the lesson, and not show them what they got wrong.

    Then when they take the quiz again, they will get a new set of random questions from the pool.

  6. Student Note-Taking

    I would like to have an option for students to take notes while they watch the lesson video. They would then be able to submit those notes as part of their coursework. Since I do regular notebook checks anyway I think this could streamline things some. Ideally, these notes would auto-backup to the database so they'd be restored if a user's browser crashed and they needed to return to the lesson. I've seen these note-taking features before on other websites, but I'm not sure how to add them to my site. You can print, email, or save the notes to…

  8. Team Courses

    Team managers should be able to register their team to complete a course individually.

    For example, when integrated with WooCommerce, a manager could purchase 5 licences for a single course for his 5 employees to complete individually.

    The managers should then be able to download a report with which members have completed the course and their results.

  9. 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.

    27 comments  ·  Extension - Sensei Content Drip  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    We’re planning to build this into the next version of our new Content Drip extension – http://www.woothemes.com/products/sensei-content-drip/

    One alternative way to do this would be using Groups as described in this post – http://www.woothemes.com/2014/02/creating-a-tiered-membership-site-with-sensei-and-groups/

    When you create a product that grants access to a Group, it allows you to set a duration, after which the user will be removed from that group.

  11. URL friendly (SEO)

    Having a more friendly URL (SEO)!
    For example, instead of "/lesson/lesson-one /" be "/name-course/lesson-one/".

  12. Show wrong answers

    Once the test is taken it's nice to see the percent correct, but there's no feedback for which questions are wrong. Unless, I'm not seeing this in the examples, it would be very frustrating if a 100% is required to pass (i.e. a homework assignment).

    The Sensei team has been discussing how we can improve the quiz experience for students. We’ve come up with a first draft that enables showing the correct answers, as well as providing feedback for both correct and incorrect answers.

    It’s important to note that this is very rough and is not representative of what the final solution will look like. This is just a starting point to get the discussion going and begin to co-create a solution with everyone who has an interest in this functionality.

    To that end, here’s a link to the mock-up. You can leave feedback by clicking the “Leave Feedback” button – https://app.evrybo.com/share/project/12489/135181/oRxY05LKo1HAqAiKG1HT

  13. 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.

  16. I'd like to see the ability to add a SCORM-compliant module, PDF viewer

    Adding video is great, I'd like to be able to add a 'SCORM-compliant' (actually TINCAN would be better) module to a page that would allow you to run complex HTML-based or Flash-based learning scenarios from Wordpress rather than a CMS such as Moodle.

    Other options would be a mp3 audio file (may be possible now, haven't tried yet).

    Allow the upload of a PDF, with a nice 'flipbook' viewer and scroll-viewer option

  17. At present there is no way my clients can alter their answers after submitting. Very cumbersome!

    Can Sensei do a very quick 'fix' and allow users to alter their answers after feedback from Teachers/Trainers? At present they have to either email or use the "contact teacher" button, but then the system still has their 'wrong' answers there. Should be easy fix?

  18. 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

  19. Allow images and media to be added to answer explanations

    Many questions have answers that are much better described using visuals like diagrams and images. Especially useful for science and medical based quizzes.
