Utilizing the WooCommerce integration feature in Tutor LMS, you open the possibility to start selling courses. There are multiple payment gateways which are always a plus to have when creating paid courses. The easy money management system will let you administer everything smoothly.
Easy Digital Downloads (EDD) Support
Tutor LMS ensures that you get options when it comes to selling courses in your very own platform. In case you don’t want to use WooCommerce, we’ve got another option for you, that is Easy Digital Downloads (EDD). You can use this popular eCommerce plugin with Tutor LMS.
Detailed Reports & Analytics
Tutor LMS reports give you a detailed overview of your enrolled courses, added lessons, total enrolments, number of students, quizzes, reviews, and so on. There are 3 sections where you can find the course analytics.
- Overview: You get the complete idea of how your courses are performing right under the overview section of Tutor LMS reports.
- Courses: You get 6 predefined time filters through which you can see how your courses have performed over the past year, month, week or a specific time period, then you can enter dates as well. There’s also an option to download the performance reports
- Reviews: In reports, there’s a separate section dedicated for reviews. You can read and manage all the course reviews easily from here.
Frontend Student Dashboard
The student dashboards help students track their own progress. This is where they get access to their enrolled courses, course status, progress, announcements, or any other notification they receive.
Instructors can easily add courses, lessons, manage reviews- basically all their essential functions from their own dashboards. Moreover, each instructor gets a public profile.
Multiple Instructors for Courses
If necessary, you can add multiple instructors to a single course. Enable the “Tutor Multi Instructors” addon and you’ll get the option to add multiple instructors to your courses.
Multi-format Lesson Attachments
Add attachments to your courses so that students can download these and study whenever they wish, even offline. You can add PDFs, docs, (and any file formats that are supported by WordPress media uploader) to create an informative course.
With Tutor, teachers can offer course videos from multiple sources like YouTube and Vimeo. Videos can also be hosted on your own server. Its built-in system prevents any unauthorized access to the natively hosted content. Viewers can resume the video lessons from where they left off.
Add prerequisites to the courses to let the students know the requirements they need to meet before enrolling in a course. Inform target students about other related courses you offer as well.
Free Lesson Previews in Paid Courses
Just like a test drive you take before buying a car, prospective students might want to test drive some lessons of your premium courses. In this case, you can open a few lessons that students can view and then decide whether to take the course. Having this option means that your course content can motivate students to enroll.
Email Communication and Notifications
Anyone associated with your learning platform will love to stay connected and receive important notifications. Tutor E-mail addon lets the site admins send customized emails in a few clicks. Define your very own footer text, sender name, and mail ID. Decide when students and other teachers receive an email notification right from the settings panel. Send emails to students when they enrol in a course, complete a quiz/course, and for many other events.
Right after your students finish a course, they would love to be rewarded with a certificate. In fact, some students specifically look for courses that provide a certificate.
Tutor LMS comes with 13 certificate templates and more to come. You can personalize these professional grade certificates with authorized name, institution name, signature, and all that apply.
Q&A section for Students & Teachers
With Tutor LMS, you can promote interactions amongst students and teachers. Students can ask any questions to teachers or comment in the Q&A section.
Ratings and Reviews
Tutor LMS offers the option for students to rate a course and write a review about it. Instructors can get valuable suggestions on how to improve a course from this feature. Teachers can manage each submitted review individually.
Your eLearning platform is supposed to hold a massive content. It’s extremely important to ensure a secure infrastructure for these data. We’re aware of this and performed extensive research to make Tutor LMS as secure as possible in this regard. When you offer content from an external source like YouTube or Vimeo, security/privacy for these kinds of stuff is managed on the respective platforms.
But if you upload your videos using Tutor’s native video uploading feature, we offer top-notch privacy features for those contents. Tutor LMS ensures authorized-only content access by checking a number of aspects like login, request origin, where it is embedded, etc. No traditional methods like directory/wp-content browsing can expose your content to unauthorized access.
Tutor LMS is compatible with the new WordPress Gutenberg editor. It incorporates 3 custom Gutenberg blocks inside. These blocks are:
Tutor Student Registration: The student registration block is for students who are interested to join courses and you can include it anywhere in your course. It appears as a basic form where students can enter their information.
Instructor Registration Form: The instructor registration form block allows you to place a sign-up form for instructors who want to join your platform. The form has all the relevant fields all set up for you to recruit new instructors.
