    The Learning Templates team has 5 star technical support. The decision to invest in BuddyBoss and Learndash plugins was made because the Classrooms for Learndash plugin exists. Without this plugin, the confidence we have in the ongoing technical support, it would not have made any sense for us to use the LMS system - Learndash and the creation of a community using BuddyBoss.
  2. Holly Billinghurst

    Cannot fault Classrooms for Learndash at all. Regular updates meant that the base features are continually improving and it's saved me hours (if not days) on student management since installation. It's turned Learndash into a true classroom experience. Dennis is incredibly receptive to feedback - If all plugins had a developer who was this responsive, the wordpress community would be much happier!
  3. S. van Dalen

    Great plugin for my learning environment. I don't use the plugin for schools, my clients are companies that purchase corporate training. With this plugin, companies gain control over the addition of employees and their results. Fantastic and fast support! I like the simple layout, this makes it very intuitive to use for my clients. Highly recommended! Happy customer here.
  4. Tina Abner

    Oh my goodness! An amazing product did everything I needed and more, however, the customer service ranks far beyond 5 stars. Dennis saved the day! I am so very new at this and he took his time to walk me step by step... and even put up with all my mistakes along the way!! I will be a customer forever!! You should be too!! Thank you so much.. From Berea KY
  5. Jonathan Boone

    Just fantastic. Has opened up so many new possibilities for my program, and super easy to use / handle. Dennis is terrific, and really open to help at any time. Couldn't recommend enough.
  6. Irene Patlakh

    Today I installed the plugin and I love it! I have been looking for such functionality for a long time, and I got much more: everything is very clear, understandable and easy to manage. I didn’t figure out some points right away, but Dennis gave me excellent support with detailed explanations, and now everything is working great and I can’t wait until tomorrow morning to re-architect my groups and give my clients new learning opportunities. Five stars, definitely!
  7. Casey Helman

    Priceless! Solves so many of my issues and concerns allowing multiple classes to access one course but within the boundaries of their own school. The professional service provided by Dennis was way beyond expectations. A new customer for life.
  8. daniel brown

    A long-awaited edition to complement the group's functionalities of learndash. Dennis has created this plugin with the user in mind, simple to use for both the end user and manager.
  9. Sammy Taylor

    Exceptional service and product. I am so excited to get started with Classrooms for LearnDash, it's going to make such a different for monitoring course progress on a larger scale. I can not thank Dennis enough for his support right from the purchase stage, and especially with the time difference. I'm a complete tech newbie, so this was exactly the support I needed - 5 stars is not enough. Thank you again from Australia

Frequently Asked Questions

Classrooms compliments and contains a direct integration with UnCanny Groups. you can use UnCanny Groups to sell groups and Classrooms to manage and report for them.

Classrooms integrates with BuddyPress groups.

We don't recommend any instructor related plugins unless those plugins create group leader roles rather than non-LearnDash native roles.

Yes, If you already use LearnDash groups, all your existing LearnDash information and configuration will immediately be available.

Classrooms also provides facility to convert regular LearnDash Groups to Classrooms child-groups (which are also native to LearnDash).

If you want to undo any Classrooms you've created in this process, you can undo this action by simply deleting the child-group and you're done.

Because Classrooms for LearnDash directly leverages LearnDash native groups, the added data in your database is minimal.

The plugin adds a license key field to your options table, a number of students field to each primary group and when the primary group leader(s) or any teachers create their personal Welcome Email template, that is added to their user meta data.

Classrooms for LearnDash does not add any further data to your database, therefore does not contribute to the infamous "database bloat" that many other plugins cause.

We're quite proud that we develop our plugins to natively work with LearnDash and other plugins that comply with LearnDash, WooCommerce and WordPress code standards, we design them all to add as little data and queries as possible to your WordPress database.

Nope. You're good to go with LearnDash and Classrooms for LearnDash alone.

Every aspect of this product is able to be translated.
Even all the information in the plugins Settings page is translatable. The plugin is also set so if you already have WordPress translations or WordPress installed in your native language, it should pick up most words from that.

I like using Loco Translate or Translate Press to translate, but any translation plugin will work.

In your LearnDash course Settings, you've set each course to " Open ", they need to be set to " Free " or greater.
LearnDash always puts " Open " courses in everyone's profile.

You  would not want to use this plugin if you auto-enroll students into groups because that process puts them all into the primary group.
This will show all users in all groups to all classrooms.

LearnDash is not natively SCORM or xAPI compliant.
Collecting and reporting xAPI data in LearnDash is reliant on 3rd. party plugins such as our xAPI for LearnDash plugin.

If you're interested in advanced LearnDash and xAPI reporting, we suggest checking out xAPI for LearnDash. Beyond it's many amazing question creation, custom tracking, visibility and reporting features, we've included an onboard reporting system that'll blow your mind!

As for SCORM, you may want to see if you can republish your SCORM courses to xAPI. Unfortunately, the SCORM standard reached end-of-life in November, 2017.

Yes. This plugin can be installed in a WPMU (WordPress Multi-site installation) setup.

Licensing is on a per-site basis for support purposes so we ask that you purchase a license for each site you will use it in.

Depending on how complex the new features are, some will come out frequently while others will take more time. As with most product developers, we don't commit to specific dates for new features, but we do plan our activities and these features, taking an organized approach with our client projects and our product development.
Beyond new features, this plugin, as with all good developers plugins, will be updated when a bug is exposed, when we've discovered a vulnerability, when WordPress or LearnDash have been updated and this product needs to be updated to comply with those changes.

Development of plugins takes a great deal of time. This is time we could spend working on projects for paying clients, but instead, we choose to help you out by providing what would normally be very costly software development at very reasonable prices in the form of our products.
In fact, when you purchase this product, you're not really paying for the development cost. These costs are already our sunk costs, so what you're actually doing is helping fund our efforts to:

  1. keep the product optimally working with WordPress and LearnDash updates
  2. add new features to the product, and
  3. you're paying for any of our excellent support you may need going forward with the product.

Yes, this product will continue working if you cancel your subscription, however, you will no longer receive new features, bug fixes, product updates or support once cancelled. You will see the license key warning in your dashboard.
You can also cancel your subscriptions direction in our web site. no need to go to the payment system provider.

If you're having problems with the product, you'll find our support is exceptional and fast. If it's just not possible to correct and issue, or it's just not a good fit for you, we have a 30 day no questions asked return policy where you will receive a full refund.
