Create Courses with Ease

Something we hear from users of WP Courses quite frequently is how easy it is to use. If you can create a WordPress page or post, you can create a course. WP Courses leverages many familiar WordPress interfaces which makes creating courses feel familiar.

Create Any Type of Lesson

Video lessons are supported with videos hosted on Vimeo, YouTube, VdoCipher and other platforms. You can also create lessons with text, audio, images and more.

Organize Your Lessons into Modules

You’ll probably want to organize your lessons into modules. WP Courses keeps this process incredibly simple. Click “add new module” and drag it where you want. That’s it… Other competing plugins require that you manually attach each lesson to a module. This takes ages!

Quizzes

Create multiple choice and multiple answer quizzes and select from many options including maximum quiz attempts, if empty answers are allowed, your quiz welcome message and more.

Modern App-Like User Interface

WP Courses leverages many modern web technologies that allow for extremely quick content loading times as well as lessons and courses that load without having to refresh the page. This leads to a seamless and quick navigation experience that will keep your students more engaged with your course content.

User Profiles

WP Courses has a robust profile section with viewed lesson tracking, completed lesson tracking, course progress tracking and quiz results.

Integrates Seamlessly with Practically Any Theme

WP Courses has been designed to seamlessly integrate with any theme inlcuding popular theme and website builders like Divi and Elementor. There are also plenty of design options to help match the design of your website.

Progress Tracking

Keep your students engaged with progress tracking. Icons and progress bars show your students which lessons they’ve viewed and completed. You can also view any of your student’s progress in the admin area.

Analytics Dashboard

See which courses are the most popular, which students are most engaged and how many people are viewing and completing lessons each day.

Restrict Lesson Content

Restrict your lesson content to logged in users only with the click of a button. Individual lessons can be restricted for fine control over your content’s visibility.

Seamless Browsing Experience

Browse by category or in one large collection. Each course has its own content with an area for a description, video and any other type of content you’d like to include.

I've tried other lms plugins, but this was the simplest and easiest - others were complex and loaded with features I did not need. What I really wanted was a way of organising my how-to-draw youtube videos into playlists with extra text and images. WP Courses LMS does just that. Now I have it up and running, I'm building a new course that goes with a book and series of videos. The course is added-value for the book and videos so I'll not be charging, therefore I can't tell you how it integrates with payment systems, i'm afraid. I'd like to thank Myles for making the basic plugin free and for such amazing and rapid support. I had a problem after an upgrade. Myles had a fix up almost within the hour!

I use another well-known LMS Plugin on one of our web properties, and chose to use WP Courses Plugin for this next project as it does a great job of simplifying the process of getting courses online, and ready to sell, quickly and without a lot of unnecessary extras. There are plenty of options if you need them, and lots of features to enable complex courses, modules, lessons and the like. I particularly like how simple it is to get up and running with badges and quizzes. The PRO pack is worth it for the files, emails and other features. On the support side, Myles is really great - open to ideas, quick to respond and on the ball. If you've struggled with other LMS plugins, this one is quicker, easier and more streamlined. Go for it! Update for 2022-06 : I've been lucky enough to work with the new user interface in version 3 for a while now and I have to say that I have been continually impressed by the support and assistance I've been getting. The new version is really impressive with the UX improvements and the quiz enhancements. This plugin just gets better and better.

It is a great way to build courses but I hope in the future to have the possibility to customize more and more every single part of it. Thanks

The plugin is simple, functional and served the purpose. Myles was kind, supportive and addressed the queries I had. I am very hopeful and positive about its future. Great Work!

When we first downloaded this plug-in for a customer of ours everything worked fine. Eventually (5 months later) we started to actually implement the plug-in into the website. We quickly ran into an issue with our theme 'porto'. Apparently our theme stripped some of the plugin's code which wrecked our woocommerce. Now this may all sound terrible yet after contacting WP COURSES support, I assumed it would take several days to get a reply. Yet Myles replied that same evening with a possible solution. I've tried his solution which didn't help. Myles asked if I could give him our site's FTP & access to the site and after an hour he'd mailed back with the reply we hoped for. Myles made a seperate plug-in for our theme which implemented the scripts stripped from the footer, to our header which in turn solved the entire issue. Soon after that I had another issue with the videos being able to be downloaded when you'd self-host them and add them as an iframe. Even then Myles gave 4 diffrent solutions, in the end they didn't work seperatly, yet with some common sense I used his recommended plug-in and some code and made it work. Honestly I've never seen anyone reply and be as supportive as Myles English. He is truly dedicated to his plugins which is to be commended. Based on everything Myles has done for and alongside us, he dserves no less than 5 stars and if anyone would ever need a not-overpriced yet still well functioning LMS plug-in that delivers quality, I'd certainly recommend WP COURSES.
