May 24th, 2017 LearnDash Tips

One of the great things about using WordPress for your LMS is how easy it is to add custom functionality using add-ons.

If you have custom needs for your LearnDash powered learning program, then chances are there is “an app for that”. Okay, maybe not an “app” – but a plugin! 🙂

Whether you are using LearnDash currently or not, below are some add-ons worth checking out!

Hi, great to hear about all the Add-On’s. We are building a membership site with courses, videos and other resources. We are using LearnDash for the courses. Is there a way of creating a resources area within LearnDash that would showcase the videos and other downloads for members access? Would this be a custom build or is there an Add-On that might help? Or any other advice that anyone has. Thanks

Yes, you can use the ‘student’ shortcode for this 🙂

Hi Justin,

I need to link LearnDash with ActiveCampaign, but ActiveMember360 seems to have many of the same features that already come with LearnDash. It seems like I’d be purchasing a product, but not using most of the features, since I don’t need to use more than one plugin to do the exact same thing (like dripping content, for example).

So, what is the benefit of using ActiveMember360 to integrate AC with LearnDash versus, say, using Zapier to integrate them?

Hi Justin, Thank you so much for all the information above. I just want to check if there is a way to save QUIZ results for a student. Also , is there a way to Print/ Save Quiz results?
