A Sneak Peek Into Tutor LMS 2.0: Revealing the Inside Look!

Tutor LMS 2.0 Sneak Peek

Launched in March 2019, it feels like yesterday Tutor LMS made its entry into the WordPress LMS world. Since then, we have taken many feature requests and feedback from our users to shape Tutor LMS to be the best WordPress LMS plugin. 

Fast forward to today, Tutor LMS has over 40,000 active installations! Let’s take a moment to appreciate this. We could not have done it without the collaborative community and the constant feedback and love. 

But that’s not where we want to stop. We want to provide you with the most robust and unified experience across the entire WordPress eLearning industry. And that’s why we are giving Tutor LMS a completely new makeover! 

Today, we’re beyond excited to give you early access content of Tutor LMS 2.0! It feels very surreal to finally be able to share with you a slice of what we’ve been pouring our heart and hard work into. 

Ready to witness the best-in-class eLearning experience? Stay tuned to find out what’s coming soon in Tutor LMS.

Mission Behind Tutor LMS 2.0 

The main goal behind redesigning Tutor LMS from the ground up was to provide a more visually unified interface. Even though Tutor LMS was already providing a good eLearning experience, we wanted to provide the best in the industry. 

In Tutor LMS 2.0, we have added a secret sauce to scale and develop LMS websites with speed and consistency. From buttons, colors, typography, tone, and everything that Tutor LMS stands out for will be more polished and modern. 

  • Optimized user interface
  • A unified design system
  • More inclusive and accessible 
  • Improved color consistency 
  • Unmatched eLearning experience

A More Visually Unified Design System

If you run an LMS site you already know how visual and technical overhaul always causes a stir. Especially when you have a lot of courses, instructors, students, or transactions to manage. It can be hard to visualize how everything fits together and the progression that you should follow as you strive to create your LMS brand. 

Soon it’ll be a pain of the past!

A new look and feel are coming to Tutor LMS 2.0 – bringing an aligned and enhanced user experience. The new unified interface is quite a shift and includes some game-changing features and improvements! 

Appearance 

Tutor LMS is getting a facelift to let your content shine like no other! The entire design concept is driven by the idea that less is more. Elements are pared down to only the essential and presented with minimalism. 

Every little visual change from typography to placement is thoughtfully made to give your LMS platform a more clean and polished look! 

Colors

Wave goodbye to inconsistent colors! In 2.0, we have fixed the color inconsistencies and used an appealing color palette to win the game. As eLearning is all about communicating friendliness and trustworthiness, Tutor LMS sets the right mood with darker blue and lighter shades. 

Accessibility

The new improved UX is now more accessible and flexibly accommodates the needs of users with visual, auditory, cognitive, mobility, and other disabilities. It will ensure your training meets everyone’s needs and generate consistent learner outcomes. 

A Highly Automated LMS

Your productivity level will be shooting through the roof! To further automate the process for instructors, students, and administrators, we eliminated many limitations that can cause a creative block. The changes are intended to speed up your workflow and ensure your eLearning courses receive the spotlight they deserve! 

More Organized Dashboard

Even if you have never created an eLearning course before, the new dashboard will make you feel like a pro! We have made a ton of great improvements to the dashboard offering a more intuitive, organized, and modern approach. 

Tutor LMS v2.0 is bringing you a dashboard that will let you access everything you need to manage your LMS website from one spot. From learner experience to the course creation process, the overall design is focused on task automation. 

New Notification Features! 

  • A: This notification functionality enhances the overall LMS experience by informing users of new announcements, comments, questions, and more.
  • B: Notification bar to let all learners instantly see any updates without having to be informed via email or messages. The notifications appear on top of the dashboard which is unlikely to miss. 
  • C: Dot-style badge to make the new notifications easily distinguishable. 
  • D: Notifications are categorized to identify and group related information.

Let your learners and instructors stay in the loop with personalized and interactive notifications.

New Email Templates Editor – HOT!

Tutor LMS already has a built-in email notification system to keep the students and tutors updated with the latest happenings but does not have an editor to change the email content as of now. So you have to override the plugin files from your theme if you want to make any changes. 

With Tutor LMS v2.0, you can wave goodbye to this hassle!  Now, you will be able to edit email template content right from the settings! This is a huge improvement that’s going to make your life so much easier. 

Edit your email template content from the editor without having to override the plugin files like before. Set your title logo, recipients, subject, email heading, additional content, and action button right from the editor. 

Email Template Content Editor

On the email settings, you will find an option to enable sending emails for every possible event on the instructor, student, and admin’s end. All you have to do is click on the Edit button to edit the email template content for that event. 

See Template Preview

Any changes you make will be visible in the template preview section right away. This will help you visualize the content and make changes accordingly. 

Send Test Email 

You can also send a test email to see exactly what your emails will look like to receivers. By sending test emails you can also ensure if your emails are being sent and delivered and any design or content changes are working the way they should.

Exclusively Designed Email Templates 

Tutor LMS 2.0 is guaranteed to provide the ultimate eLearning experience! Set the bar even higher and get a competitive edge with our exclusive in-house designed email templates for each event.

Next-Level Insights With More Advanced Analytics

Dealing with data can be hard, but not with Tutor LMS. With Tutor LMS 2.0, you’ll not only enjoy the best in the industry but easy-to-use analytics features. 

Here you’ll get a detailed analytics report to adjust your strategies based on data-driven insights. 

From filling performance gaps, assessing the effectiveness of the courses, and tracking the performance of individual student progress, you can do so much more with advanced analytics.

  • Overview(A): Overview drills down and extracts insights to give you a run-through of total students, courses, reviews, your earnings graph, and the most popular courses. 
  • Courses(B1, B2): Get course-specific insights and track the earnings from each course with the earnings graph. 
  • Earnings(C): Get an overview of your overall earning statistics like total earnings, current balance, total withdraws, total sales, deducted commissions, and more on the earnings tab of Analytics. 
  • Statements(D): List view statement of earning, commission, and fees for each purchase with order id and purchaser information. 
  • Students (E1, E2): List of registered students with the number of courses enrolled. Detailed report on course-specific progress – lesson completion, quiz, and assignment performance of each student.
  • Exports (F): Download a detailed report of each student in a CSV file on the exports tab. 

Enhanced Level of Communication   

One of the most important aspects of an eLearning website is to create an interactive environment between students and teachers. While Tutor LMS already has an effective Question & Answer section for instructors to connect and communicate with the students, we revisited the thought process to make it even more engaging. 

Question & Answer

Now students can leave their questions on a course and instructors can assist much like instant messaging applications.

  • Mark as important (A): There’s a badge to set the question to important to define the priority level. 
  • Mark Solved (B): Instructors can also set the status to solved when they are done providing the solution.
  • Mark as Unread/ Archive (C): You can also archive the conversation, mark it as unread, share files, and perform other actions like instant messaging applications.

Having the ability to instantly communicate and solve students’ problems will enhance your student engagement, provide constant connectivity, and help you keep communication formal with a casual touch.

New Event Calendar 

Now you can better plan and prepare your courses with the new Event Calendar! Organize your events, schedule your exams, assignments, lessons, and share your calendar with your students to keep them up to date with your eLearning plan.

The calendar displays the Lesson, Assignment, and Quiz event types. These are viewable only within a course created by an instructor.

Activities in a course that have an associated due date will auto-populate the Calendar on the specified date. That’s not all! Events will be highlighted in red if they are overdue and blue if upcoming to ensure the powerful feature is easy to use too! 

New Assignments Options

Tutor LMS strives with a learner’s first approach. To make distance learning even better and productive, Tutor 2.0 will allow instructors to set if students can retake assignments. 

Instructors can also leave feedback when evaluating the assignment so that students can reflect on where they need to improve. 

Revamped Course Catalog & Details 

The upcoming Tutor LMS will give you the flexibility to choose from multiple layouts to create a directory of courses, each with their page neatly. 

With the built-in sleek designs and your preferred layouts, it’s going to be much easier for the eyes to access the courses on your eLearning website.  

Course Catalog

Set your preferred column per row, course filters, and more to create a directory of your courses with a beautiful course catalog. Each entry involves a display image, star rating, course information, and a call to action so that students can quickly filter and make their purchase decision. 

Detailed Course Page

The course details page has some striking improvements! The first distinct change is the enlarged course intro video to grab the attention of the readers. 

The course details page usually has a lot of information to cover, Tutor LMS 2.0 decluttered the entire page and beautifully balances the information through the use of tabs.

It now contains extensive information such as Q/A, Announcements, Comments, Integrations, and more through the use of tabs. 

Announcements

Any announcements created from the backend for courses will be visible in the Announcements tab of the course details page. 

Integrations

Membership Plan

The right sidebar containing the membership plan and course information is completely dynamic. You won’t have to manually input any information here! 

Settings Restructured

The backend settings panel of Tutor LMS is being changed significantly compared to the current version. The traditional menu tabs at the top of the screen have been moved to a sidebar. It has been restructured to look more modern and make the settings area more flexible to configure.

Front-end Preview: Each Instructor’s public profile layout is beautifully segmented with the instructor’s display image, achievements, biography, and the list of courses they are taking.

Gradebook

You can set up your entire Grading Point system for your eLearning site with Tutor LMS very easily. From setting up your Gradebook to configuring Grade Name, Grade Point, Minimum Grade Percentile, Maximum Grade Percentile, Grade Colour, you will have everything that is required to set up a Grading System. 

More Intuitive Certificate Setup

The certificate setup page is now more intuitive and guided. You won’t get lost in a pool of texts and options. The settings will beautifully guide you to the certificate creation process. All you have to do is select the design, type in your text, and upload your signature to create a certificate for a course. 

You’ll also get to see a list of all your certificates here. Besides each certificate, you’ll have the option to enable or disable the certificate, edit, or delete. 

Certificate Preview

Students upon completing the course can now preview the certificate before downloading it. Apart from the download option, they can also print, share, or copy the credential URL for each certificate. 

Use Presets or Your Custom Palette 

The Preset Colors tab lets you easily configure color settings throughout your entire site. You can switch between pre-defined presets or create your custom color palette.

You can also define your background color, hover color, and text color from here and style your LMS site according to your preference. 

Brand New Quiz Builder Interface

Quizzes are a great indicator of how good an LMS is and with Tutor LMS, we didn’t settle for the good, we opted for the best! The new quiz creation interface provides a more intuitive way to add and edit all the questions in your quiz.

The Advanced Options tab has been moved to the backend course settings and any changes you make here will be applied to all the quizzes under this course. This is going to save you from doing redundant work. 

Student View

Student views of the quizzes are now more informed and polished. A new window with quiz information will be presented before a student can start the quiz. There will also be a new Back button so that Instructors can set the option to go back and retake a question.

    Please can you add the ability to easily add custom registration form.

    • kawshar
      October 22, 2021

      Extended registration could be done with 3rd party plugins which should not be a part of the core LMS plugin.

      Thanks

    Can you please add the ability to add a logo to courses.

    A lot of courses have an awarding body or accreditation an a logo is a must to improve sales and recognition.

    Ideallly a logo in the sidebar on the single course page and then when courses are listed a logo added for course in the listing.

    I bet there is so many people wanting this feature and it will sky rocket sales!

    Please add!!

    Ps can’t wait till you launch with 2.0!

    Hello,
    Suggestion for improvement.
    1) On the “course enrolled” page you can add the “view course” button which allows students to redirect to the course page and the “start lesson” button which redirect students to the lesson page. It’s better.
    2) In the “My courses” page for instructors, add the tab (Online courses, pending courses, draft) or a filter to filter the courses already online, the pending publication and the draft

    Thank

    I have a question, can we use GoogleMeet? Or does integrating with Google Classroom meant we can also use GoogleMeet?

    • Sekander
      October 20, 2021

      Google Meet is a part of Google Caldendar which we have not integrated yet. We have plans to integrate it within the second quarter of 2022.

    There is something that LearnDash does better which TutorLMS has to look into.
    (1) The text editor to input quiz questions in TutorLMS is not HTML and cannot hold images and files. It is also very small and not suitable for an English comprehension long-type questions. Can you look into this and make the editor more user-friendly.
    (2) When teachers are setting up quizzes, they should also be able to include feedback for the wrong/right answers. This feature is also available in Moodle and most advanced LMS. Feedback is key!!

    • Sekander
      October 20, 2021

      Hey Morris,

      1. We have plans to improve the entire course creating experience. I hope that you will see something cool from 2022. Currently we are occupied with Tutor 2.0 update.

      2. We already have a feedback system in the quiz for the instructor. Please open a quiz as an instructor from the frontend dashboard. You will see a field to add feedback at the top of the quiz.

      We also have a email notification feature for quiz feedback.

  • ahmadz
    October 19, 2021

    Looks amazing! thank you.
    I just have a suggestion to add a comment/feedback after answering a question. The teacher writes this beforehand to give an explanation of why the answer is A, not B, or why it is False, not True. I think this is very useful and would allow us to provide more input to our students.
    Many thanks for making the best LMS plugin outthere!

    • Sekander
      October 19, 2021

      Thank you so much for the suggestion. We already have a good amount of requests to add question hints and explanation. I believe that we will be able to work on it soon.

    Hello,
    Have you thought about a private messaging system between instructor and students who have enrolled in the course? In my message, writing a message, the student chooses the course and sends a message to the instructor.
    Thank

    • Sekander
      October 18, 2021

      Hi,
      Private messaging is in our plan but not in our priority list at this moment. I hope that we will be able to work on this in 2022.

  • Blasyfeel

    Hello, I still have a few little suggestions:
    1) Have you thought about creating a zoom meeting page for students? Students will be able to see the entire zoom course meeting to which they are registered in this page with the “join meeting” button. Current or active meeting, Future meeting, (you must add the course title) and past or expired meeting.
    2) Separate the zoom meeting creation from the course creation page. It will be easier to put a “create a meeting” button on the zoom page in the dashboard. When the instructor clicks on the “create a meeting” button, he is asked to choose a course before creating the meeting. And this meeting should not be validated by the administrator

    Thank

    • Sekander
      October 14, 2021

      Hi,
      1. We already have this feature for the instructors. We have introduced the calendar feature, do you think it would be nice to show the upcoming zoom calls there? It can be a one stop place for the student to know about all the tasks.

      2. I will share this feedback with the user experience design team 🙂

      • Blasyfeel
        October 16, 2021

        Hello,
        The idea of ​​a calendar for students is so cool. Yes that’s exactly it, I think adding the zoom events created by the instructors for the courses in the calendar would be a very good idea. Students may be notified of the creation of a new zoom event created by instructors. The students can view current events for today in the calendar with the join meeting buttons, upcoming events, and expired or past events.

        • Sekander
          October 18, 2021

          Thank you for your kind feedback. I have added them in the feature requests.

  • blunnyn
    October 13, 2021

    It looks incredible, although it would be better if a grade could be obtained for the courses, that is, the student at the end of the course if they have over X grade, they pass the course.

    This could be reflected in the final certificate. In addition, it would be ideal if the course start and end date could be added to the same certificate.

    Greetings and excellent work.

    • Sekander
      October 14, 2021

      Hi,
      Thank you so much for all your good word. We feel really encouraged from such positive appreciation.

      We are developing a drag and drop certificate builder at this moment. I hope that we will be able to include the grade and date features in our future updates.

  • CARLOS MULLER
    October 12, 2021

    I really liked everything I saw and I’m looking forward to this new version. The new features will make the tool much better and more complete!

    But I was in doubt, I already have an annual subscription to the platform, which I will renew in December. Will this version 2.0 be sold separately or will everyone who use the current version be automatically upgraded?

    I also ask you to pay attention to the translation part, I use the platform in Portuguese and I had a lot of problems doing the translation, I had to do a lot on my own, adjusting directly in the HTML, as the .po file was not ready to translate all layout and navigation items.

    • Sekander
      October 13, 2021

      Hello Carlos,
      Thank you so much for using Tutor LMS and taking the time to share your concerns.

      Tutor 2.0 will be offered to all of our active users. There will be no discrimination and no extra charges. The free version users will get the free version of Tutor 2.0 and the Pro version users will get the pro features aligning with that.

      We do not have any plans to sell any new tools or add-on or module this year. Including everything in one single price has been one of our major positioning. We will try our best to maintain that 🙂

      I am sorry to know that you had trouble with the translations. We have fixed all of them as we got the reports. If you still find anything that are not translatable, please let us know. We will try our best to fix as soon as possible.

      You will be happy to know that we are planning to release all of our pending features and products before the Black Friday. So, it will be helpful for you to decide in December 🙂

    What about WooCommerce Memberships integrations?

    • Sekander
      October 9, 2021

      Hi,
      I am sorry to inform you that we do not have plans to integrate any other membership or payment processing system at this moment. We have started planning for a built in payment processing system which will facilitate all kinds of eCommerce needs 🙂

      • teachthought
        October 13, 2021

        Thank you. WooCommerce should not be required to sell a course. Can’t wait to see this—hoping it has the ability to upsell, save items for later, and a streamlined cart/checkout experience for improved conversions.

      • ubheamar
        October 10, 2021

        I chose tutor LMS over LearnDash because of seamless WooCommerce Integration. so that I can add features as cart abandoned & make product file downloadable. I think Tutor LMS should provide flexibility to customers to either integrate with WooCommerce or their own payment system.

        • Sekander
          October 11, 2021

          We will not remove anything that already exists. We will just add new things on top of it.

          As having membership features as our built in feature and adding compatibility again would be redundant, we decided not to add more integrations.

    I am very happy using tutor LMS ❤️ .

    Tutor LMS is already better than Thinkific.

    Tutor LMS allows you to make powerful academies and very easy to use.

    I have a lot of changes in my Tutor LMS, whenever there is an update I write my changes and everything works fine again.

    Tutor LMS programmers have to know that they are doing a great job. 🙏

    Looks very promising! Thank you for all those efforts you take.
    I looked through some of the feature requests and they seem pretty cool. But please also consider the page speed when implementing the features. It would be really sad if Tutor LMS gets one of these bloated plugins that scare all the customers away.
    Thanks a lot!

    • Sekander
      October 6, 2021

      Thank you so much for your nice words. Positive feedback like this encourages us to do more great things!

    • hfngl
      October 6, 2021

      Speaking of page speed: It would be great, if using a caching plugin wouldn´t conflict with the login page of tutor lms. I know you have a lot to do, but fixing this would be amazing.
      Have a nice day!

      Hello Kanav,

      We use the user login data from WordPress table. We do not have any special mechanism that would require logging in twice. Can you please use the contact form on our website to share more details?

      We would like to take a look in your site and work if there are any bugs 🙂

    • Sekander
      October 4, 2021

      Hi,

      We have planned for Gutenberg blocks for Tutor LMS but they will take a bit more time. So, you can say 2.2 or 2.3 might bring the Gutenberg blocks.

    • Sekander
      October 4, 2021

      Hi,
      Yes, we have plans to improve the overall experience of the entire system. But I am not sure if we will be able to add all the features in the first release of 2.0. I guess we might improve the video player somewhere between 2.2 or 2.3.

      Thank you so much for using Tutor LMS.

    Hello,

    I would like to give you a suggestion regarding the live zoom course, you can still improve it.
    When creating the course we ask the instructor if he wants to create an online or live course with zoom. If he chooses to create a live course, he is asked to enter the start date of the session, the end date of the session (the instructor can add several start and end dates for the same course), duration (days or time), number of places, price ……
    In the course builder, the instructor will create lesson sessions with the date, time, duration, identification and live zoom passwords ( it is this session that will be save on zoom). For example: *Cours of photoshop (in live)
    Start date : September 20, 2021
    End date : September 25, 2021
    *Duration 5 days
    *Course schedule
    -Session of September 20, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (duration :2 hours) :
    Lessons 1
    Lessons 2
    Lessons 3

    In the course page, you can display “live” in red on the live course and students can also filter the live course and online.
    Create a special page only to display the course live.
    In the dashboard, add the “live course” tab where the students can see all the live course registered in progress, future and past. In the course on each lesson session there will be a join live button for the progress live course. Regarding the payment, the instructor can request to receive the course money live 5 days after the end of the session date in order to allow the administration to verify that the course session has taken place.

    Thanks

      October 4, 2021

      Hi,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to describe the feature. Yes, we do have plans to improve our course landing pages and introduce some variations to display courses. Please allow us some time and subscribe to our mailing list to get notified about the new improvements 🙂

    Hello, on your WP Crowdfunding plugin there is the stripe connect feature. Why haven’t you implemented it for tutor lms? That’s what’s missing, tutor lms stripe connect. I’m looking forward to it.
    Payoneer is also interesting
    Thank

    • Sekander
      October 4, 2021

      Hi,
      We have plans to make Tutor LMS work alone and remove the dependencies for WooCommerce or any other third party eCommerce solutions. So, it will take us some time 🙂

      Please do not worry about removing current integrations. They will run side by side. We just choose to be independent 😉

      • Blasyfeel
        October 7, 2021

        Could I have a little more information please ? In the independence of tutor lms payment systems, will the payout be automatic? Or the system will still be manual as we do now. Are you going to integrate stripe connect express, custom? Or payoneer?

        • Sekander
          October 9, 2021

          We can not add all the features in the first release. We do have plans to add productivity features and save your time. So, Stripe Connect and automated payments are a possibility for the future 🙂

    please make sure to include the following

    . add custom event in the 2.0 event module. this will greatly enhance an education site. not just quizes and tests. also paid event option integration with woocommerce payment gateways.
    2. buddypress styling templates. few theme developers do a good job of styling buddypress menus if any at all. this is very true on mobile phone buddypress menu styling and design.
    the buddypress avatar and cover image takes up a whole screen . WTF.
    3. ON DEMAND TUTORIAL BOOKING.
    ADD WOOCOMMERCE BOOKING INTEGRATION INTO 2.0.
    this will allow students to book lessons with their private online tutors.
    3. hope 2.0 separate the student and teacher dashboard.
    right now it’s lumped together. no good. confusing.
    what is the ETA for 2.0 please?

    thanks and regards,

      Hi,

      Thank you so much for your detailed suggestions. We are already looking into opportunities to integrate with WooCommerce Booking.

      The options and features on the Dashboard loads based on the user role. So, I personally do not see an issue there. We have received only 3 requests about separating the dashboard for students and instructors. If we receive more requests, we will definitely consider working on it 🙂

      The ETA for 2.0 first beta is November 2021

        I would also like the ability to add events that aren’t necessarily course-based—like webinars, for example.

        Improved quiz functions like hints, the ability to explain why an answer was incorrect, and some kind of hover-based toolkit that can offer a sentence or two of explanation for each possible answer before answering.

        (In my dream world, the quiz would be adaptive/conditional based on responses so it would scale to student ability but I know this is not required for most users. We run an education organization, however, and these kinds of technologies are becoming a standard for modern assessments. At the minimum, it would be nice for students to be able to choose a difficulty level for a quiz and the instructor could simply make two or more versions.)

        A separate dashboard for students and teachers seems to make sense.

          Hi,

          Thank you so much for taking the time to describe your ideas. I have forwarded them to our user experience design team. We already have some requests to add question hints in the quiz section. I believe that we will be able to work on the explanation feature soon 🙂

      Me gustaría ver mejoras en la gestion de asignaciones. Actualmente, después de evaluar una tarea es obligatorio volver atrás para revisar un siguiente tarea. Seria bueno si podemos navegar entre las tareas con unos botones anterior-siguiente

        Thank you so much for the suggestion. I also agree with you that it is time to focus more on productivity features. I will share your input with the user experience design team.

    But one thing concerns me, would we be able to safely migrate our existing classes and students data to this new update?

    Adoro Tutor LMS per la sua semplicità! Bravi!
    Purtroppo non lo possiamo usare per il mondo ECM perché il registro attività non è completo, non offre informazioni in profondità come le LOG.
    Chissà in un prossimo futuro…

    Ciao!

      Yes, I agree with you. A logging system would be cool. I will share your concern in our next team meeting 🙂

    looks great but please enter once with multisite, your website states multisite support but unfortunately not directly, please fix for multisite

    • Sekander
      October 1, 2021

      Hi,

      You can install the plugin on a multi site environment but it is not possible to have multiple sites in one network installation.

    Looks stunning!

    We hope we will get the following features as well:
    – Easy translations for all of the content (Certificates included).
    – Be able to add a custom player, for example with shortcode (Presto Player for WordPress), for the main video or any of the lessons.

    • Sekander
      October 1, 2021

      Hi,

      Thank you so much for your appreciation.

      1. The entire platform can be translated in any language you want. We have 27 translations available already. You can also use the WPML integration to use multiple language in the same website.

      2. Presto player is already integrated. You can embed videos from any source you want.

        HI,
        I cannot express this strongly enough…
        I have other video players I wish to embed, some only work by inserting a Shortcode. So, especially with LESSONS, we need another option to add video Shortcodes (as well as Embeds) and another to add into a WYSIWIG area so we can control our own custom video players being displayed in our Lessons. Adding my own cloud videos within different types of video-players, to lessons has been a real pain for me, so pretty please fix this for 2.0.

        • Sekander
          October 1, 2021

          Did you try using Shortcodes in the embedded video field? If yes and that is not working for you, please use the contact form on our website. We will try our best to assist you 🙂

    • Sekander
      October 1, 2021

      Hello Kanav,

      I am sorry to inform you that we do not have the feature for negative marking at this moment. I will discuss this request with the team and share the update in our blog post. Please subscribe to our newsletter from the footer of our website 🙂

        Thank you.

        One more Querry

        Like we have subscription on our website we are using Memberpress…is that possible can we integrate tutor with memberpress…why I am sharing this because if anyone want to access..they need to subscribe and now if we integrate tutor…one login will work…unless students has to do twice login…one is for subscription and other for tutor.

    I can’t wait to implement those in my Course (NShamimPRO – Bangladeshi Audience) and the upcoming course for the International Audience.

    Thanks to the Themium team. Shine ahead.

  • rodrigomc2000

    Very nice job!

    And what about like your theme forest competitor, let we share questions from course instead of create all questions inside the course? Example: a bank of 1000 questions that each new course that we create we can just link those question and setup the points! Same for lessons, some course we need show lessons from another course! Can we do this easily?

    And about SSO?

    Thanks

      Hi,

      Each of the LMS in the market has a different position and serves to the different category of LMS portals. For our case, reusing the content is not that popular. So, we do not have plans for that yet. If we get more requests about this, we will definitely consider working on it 🙂

      Single Sign On feature can be used with any WordPress compatible plugin as we store all the user information on the default user tables.

    Great LMS!

    Please improve payment plans. The membership plug-ins are too clunky. We need a ‘Pay Full’ and ‘Pay Monthly’ feature with a set number of monthly payments not just subscribe. I know there is plugins but there are too many workarounds.

    Great platform though

  • cmfionline

    This is breathtaking!!! Keep going!!!

    Some feature requests for consideration:
    I wish we have conditional questions added to the question options. For instance, show or skip a question depending on the answer of the previous question. This would be greatly appreciated.
    Secondly, in the currently version (there maybe a setting for this but …), I would like to prevent a quize submission until all the questions have been answered. Currently, once you on the last question in a quize, and hit “submit”, it shows up in red the questions for which answers have not been provided, but nevertheless, the submission goes through.

    • Zareen Tasnim

    Very excited for the 2.0 version and happy that we are going to have all these new improvments so soon! What I would like to see with this version is the ebility to easily transfer listed courses from a website to another with back up or any other workable way. Not the entire website, just the courses. It would be great! Thanks and keep going!!

      Hi,
      For now, the certificates can be accessed by the students only. If you need to download a copy as the admin, you can use the User Switching plugin to login as the student and download the certificate.

    Exciting news. Can we add shortcodes to course content now?

    • Sekander
      October 1, 2021

      Hello Martin,

      The shortcode feature should be easily usable inside the lessons when you’re using the classic editor. We have turned off HTML filtering for security purposes.

      So, if some special shortcodes are not working for you, you may turn of the security features from the source code. Please use the contact form on our website to get assistance.

    Amazing work. Can’t wait for it to be released. My only wish is if it can have some sort of integration with virtual classrooms API so it can be implemented with your amazing LMS.
