Let your students take notes and communicate with the instructor at the in any LearnDash post.

The Notes/Journals for LearnDash plugin creates a widget as well as 3 shortcodes that you can place into any LearnDash content, sidebar as well as one shortcode you can add to your Student dashboard.

The 3 shortcodes are:

[llms_add_new_note] to add the students note panel anywhere you want.

[llms_notes_list] to add the students notes history / management list panel anywhere you want.

[llms_full_notes_list] to add a complete list of all the students notes to anywhere you want in the website (although it makes most sense putting in the student Dashboard).

NOTE: Do not use the shortcodes in the same post multiple times, else you will duplicate the student entries.

The notes shortcodes can be styled globally, or individually for each LearnDash post (you will need to know CSS for this).

All text / messages can be changed using your favorite translations plugin.

Notes/Journals for LearnDash lets your students create, download, delete and communicate on a post-by-post basis.

Students can also communicate with their instructor (Group Leader with site administrator as a backup). The instructor will receive an email of the students note and can then respond to that note.

Students can create personal notes, or share their notes with the instructor. Notes are private to the student and cannot be shared with other students.

Student notes cannot be added to quiz questions.

Students can create multiple notes per post and view/manage their notes history. In the history view, students can see which specific note(s) they sent to the instructor and can manage their notes.

Students can also view all their notes for all courses if you add the [llms_full_notes_list] shortcode to their Dashboard (or anywhere you want really). This shortcode also contains a link to the post where they left the note(s) so they can just jump right to it from the list.

Site administrators and authors can view, respond to, and manage all student notes in the WordPress dashboard.

The [llms_add_new_note] shortcode also works with any TinyMCE editor plugins (such as TinyMCE Advanced) so you can manage the editor buttons and menus from those plugins as you would for any other TinyMCE front-end editor – this includes making the editor full screen if they want.

Notes/Journals for LearnDash also comes with Update Notifications and licensing so you can keep it up to date when LearnDash changes.

    This is a great plugin! There’s not many plugins you can say “it just works” but this is one of them. Install, place your shortcodes and boom, done! And the option to put all the students notes on their dashboard is genius. Thank you Dennis!
