LearnDash is the leading learning management system for WordPress. It allows you to facilitate selling and managing online courses on a self-hosted platform that you own & control.
It is the leading LMS WordPress plugin that lets you create self-hosted courses that you have full control of, and it’s the go-to course creation plugin for:
- Educational institutions
- Independent course creators
- CEU Training Organizations
And now, with the recent rollout of LearnDash 3.0, LearnDash just blew all of the competition out of the water. With their new Focus Mode, incredible course builder, and many more shiny new features, managing and selling online courses just got easier.
Common Issues with Learning Management System Plugins
E-learning as an industry has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. Modern technology lets anyone with the passion to teach to create their own courses and distribute them the way they want to.
Learning Management Systems are websites or applications that let you deliver and manage online courses and keep track of users as well.
The purpose of LMS WordPress plugins is to turn any WordPress site into LMS. Although great in theory, many of these plugins come with a boatload of issues that make course creation harder than it needs to be.
Common Issues with LMS Plugins:
- Bad UX/UI that give both course creators and learners an overall bad experience
- Complicated front-end and back-end setup that eats up too much time
- Not mobile-friendly
The amazing thing is these are exactly what LearnDash sought to solve in their recent version, and I couldn’t be more excited!
