Our users already know that listening to them is one of our core values. Some of the teachers wanted to do everything on their own and we found some users who are volunteering for eLearning projects and don’t have web development experience. For them, it was complicated to understand configuring the setting if they wanted to build a site for a single teacher or launch a marketplace for their friends and colleagues.

So, we came up with the idea to offer all the major options for a basic installation in a step by step installation wizard.

With the latest release of Tutor LMS V1.5.7, you will find a new user-friendly configuration process. The whole experience has been designed & developed by our team to give you the best onboarding experience. You will find all the necessary settings from the first time you install Tutor LMS, and not to worry about if you have missed something.

So, let’s dive in to see what you will find in the all-new Setup Wizard for Tutor LMS.

Here is an overview video we made for you to better understand how you can configure your Tutor LMS with the setup wizard.

Below you will find detailed information about what each step does in the new setup wizard.
