Summary:

If it's coming from WOO, you know it's good--and it's only going to get better. Learning Management Plugin? Their first effort gets my first vote.

WOO Themes just came out with a new plugin: Sensei. It’s a Learning Management System, in other words: it’s going to make creating coursework, classes, instructions, and any sort of help guides all the easier.

I thought this was going to be a theme, but I’m pleased it’s a plugin–so you can use it on any theme. There are progress bars (e.g. “You’re 25% finished with the SEO for Beginners Course”), and even pre-requisite courses (e.g. need to take the swimming course before you can take the windsurfing course), and even payment options with WOO Commerce.

There have been a few other learning-type plugins and themes in the WordPress community, but just like there were other e-commerce plugins that never quite did it, WOO brought it home. This looks, even here with the first version, like it’s going to be an excellent plugin. As with e-commerce, it started out fine but just kept getting better and better. WOO is on top of it, they stand behind their products and you can expect good support, fixes, updates, upgrades and feature requests that get answered. Go WOO!

With the Sensei plugin you can create courses, write lessons, and add quizzes. Set lesson and course pre-requisites, allow user registration and even charge for your course content using WooCommerce if you want.

    I have to agree with you, I’ve just started to play with the plugin and it does seem simple to use.

    Whilst I’m having a few teething problems, this is more about me learning to do it correctly than anything else and, in the end, it’s a Woo product, so I know the support will be there.

      What I really like about WOO products isn’t as much version 1 but version 2. You can tell that you guys really stick to it and improve as you go along. Thanks so much for your commitment, makes my job a whole lot easier–and better.
