February 3rd, 2013 E-Learning

check_greenThe journey to make WordPress an official, viable learning management system is well on its way. Last Monday, we released version 1.0 of the LearnDash plugin with the goal to enable organizations and developers alike the ability to turn their WordPress sites into a bona fide LMS. Now that we have the basic framework in place, we are well on our way to enhancing LearnDash.

A big thank you to those who have written and offered up suggestions for future functionality. As always, feel free to submit your ideas on features you would like to see us integrate into LearnDash. You can also contact us with your specific needs as we are able to do some custom development for you – particularly in regards to custom reporting.

A Glimpse at What’s to Come

You have spoken and we have listened. We are hard at work creating a more robust offering, some features that you can expect in upcoming releases include:

  • Additional payment processors for selling your courses
  • Additional reporting details on your users interactions with your LMS
  • Enhanced tin-can api abilities, including the sending of tin-can statements based on users interacting with the LMS
  • One-click upload of Articulate Storyline published courses
  • Lesson “phase-gates” (users must complete the preceding lessons before moving onto the next)
  • Enhanced certificate abilities

This is just a portion of our “laundry list” of upgraded features we are working on.  We want to reiterate our commitment to your project and and goals.  Please contact us at any point during your project for guidance, advice, or even if you just want to bounce an idea off of people who have been there.

Congrats Justin.

It would be great to add “Drag & Drop” quiz options as well as multiple-choice feedback per answer.

Really appreciate the work you guys are doing! Keep it up!


It is very good initiative. Recommend to have a demo site for public, it will help in evaluating features in real scenario.

Best of Luck

Great work so far. I’m looking forward to the future updates.


And one-click upload of Adobe Captivate published courses?

Avatar johnjapan

Once Captivate creates a program that publishes to tin-can, we will certainly visit this option.


I have been searching for the plug-in one click upload for articulate storyline.. in the support.learndash.com and everywhere else couldn’t find it..

Could you please tell me where I can find it??
