In this age of Udemy, Lynda, and Coursera, developers in the WordPress community are fond of creating multi-instructor WordPress themes. This leaves people who want to go ahead with their individual teaching platforms to have very few options to choose from. Having that in mind, we’ve come up with a plan to release a Tutor LMS powered WordPress theme completely focused on the individual instructors.
Ever since we released Tutor LMS, we have got plenty of requests from many instructors to develop a single instructor ready theme. While Tutor LMS is capable of creating learning management sites at scale, a theme fully focused on a single instructor would be great for those who are asking for this since the beginning. We are developing Docent- a WordPress LMS theme powered by the Tutor LMS plugin focusing solely on a single instructor. We will show you a sneak peek of Docent here today!
Why Would You Need a Single Instructor Focused Theme?
While Tutor LMS can power eLearning websites at scales, WordPress themes, on the other hand, offer plenty of features and functionalities depending on the number of instructors. A multi instructor ready theme will have many features and functionalities that a single instructor doesn’t need. Most importantly there’s a huge difference between the design of these two types of themes. This is why for an individual instructor, single instructor ready theme is a must choice.
Perfect for Individual Instructors
Docent is going to be an outstanding WordPress theme for anyone who wants you to teach online. Instructors, teachers, coaches, beauticians, guitarists, chefs, or anyone with the intention to kick off their teaching platform online can go for Docent.

Excellent, certainly be my next theme !!!
Thid looks amazing. I might want to wait for this
Thank you, Andrew Lee. We are working on Docent and will release it ASAP.
That’s great news! Would it be possible for courses to have more than one instructor? If so, how would that work out? Would getting the Language School theme be a better fit if I wanted that functionality?
Sorry for the late reply.
Yes, you can have multiple instructors. It is available on the Pro version of Tutor LMS.
You can add multiple instructors and the instructors will be able to access the course from their frontend or backend dashboard.
As this is a plugin functionality, it is not dependent on any theme. You are free to use any theme you want.
Just to note one thing, Docent is focused on a single instructor website. So, it does not have the feature to display author information anywhere.
