Events Manager for LearnDash

Events Manager for LearnDash

Turn your live events into lessons!

Events Manager for LearnDash makes use of the free Events Manager plugin and directly connects the events to LearnDash lessons.

The Events Manager plugin does not require an external service to create and manage events. So you would only require LearnDash, Events Manager, and this Events Manager for LearnDash plugin to be fully operational.

This plugin adds front-end event creation, editing, and duplication to to a shortcode for use in any web page.

There are two types of events you can create in the front-end: General Events that are not reliant on LearnDash, and LearnDash Course Events that, when created, will place a button in any lesson your allow the Event Author to use.

The LearnDash course Events control lesson completion using a Class Roster form. When the Event Author checks the box of a student, that action will control the Mark Complete button in that lesson for that student.

This plugin also supports all Events Manager Pro features such as WooCommerce integration if you choose to sell event reservations / tickets. This is optional and is not required to add events to your lessons.
