Tutor LMS 1.8.0

Hello Tutor LMS users! We’re coming up with a new update this week to your beloved eLearning plugin to enhance it even further. So let’s take a look at all the new goodies you will get in this new update.

We have also moved Email Templates to Tutor LMS Pro in this version. This means that any changes you have made (such as translations), then you must make those changes once again from the Tutor LMS Pro files.

Improved Assignments UI and UX

The assignment tabs for both backend and frontend have been updated to bring it in line with our newest design language. This new UI allows you to sort and view all existing assignments submitted by the students. 

You can also filter them by categories, date, and a newly added search box

Backend Assignment Menus

The backend assignments menu will let you view all submitted assignments where instructors can go in to check and evaluate the submitted assignments. 

Dev Notes: If you are running a Tutor LMS based theme like Skillate, Edumax, or Docent, please make sure to grab the latest versions. Otherwise the assignments UI will look misaligned.

Frontend Assignment Menus

The frontend menu can be found in the instructor dashboard and will show all existing assignments.

An instructor can then click on the details to view the submitted assignments to evaluate pending assignments.

Text Prompts for Better Administrative Feedback

We have added 2 new text prompts for better feedback from the Tutor LMS subsystem. This allows administrators to have a better idea of what changes they are making. From this update, you will get a confirmation notice whenever you are saving settings or any form of data on Tutor LMS in the WP Admin panel. 

Your instructors will also receive a message confirming when they submit a course for review.

Other Fixes

When student enrolments are updated, old versions of Tutor LMS were sending more than 1 email notifications to students. This issue has been fixed and now only 1 will be sent to the students. 

We have fixed the buttons in the last page of the Tutor LMS setup wizard to link to the correct pages. Moreover, we have also addressed the quiz import issue to work correctly. 

We have also issued several other fixes to the plugin to ensure better stability and performance.   

Wrapping Up

Stay tuned for more updates to our amazing products; we’ll be updating Tutor LMS very frequently during 2021 as it is clearly your favorite. So keep an eye out for our blog posts and newsletters, there could be something inside for every one of you.

    Hi, just few questions.
    1. Any plans to make Tutors lms SCORM compliace?
    2. What about gammification options?
    3. What about Zoom and Google Classroom?
    4. Webinar?
    5. Slide sharing options?

    I have reviewed the whole documentation avail on the net including some independent reviews but the above functios are really a plus for me

    Please to advise on any future plan. I could probably wait for some of them.
