Our goal at LearnDash is to not only develop robust built-in features with our product, but also to expand its functionality by developing integrations with other value-adding WordPress plugins.
A lot of thought and evaluation goes into this process as we want it to truly benefit our users.
One item that has come up from time-to-time is the integration of LearnDash with popular membership plugins available. Of course, LearnDash offers course protection organically, but there are also some added benefits and features by using a membership plugin for protection in conjunction with LearnDash.
From our initial release, we have ensured that LearnDash was compatible with the most popular membership offerings, allowing you to protect your courses, lessons, lesson topics, and quizzes just like you would any other WordPress page or post (should you want to).
Still, we wanted to take it one-step further to provide you another intriguing option…
LearnDash & PaidMembershipsPro (PMP)
After many hours of research and conversations, one name kept coming up: PaidMembershipsPro. PMP is a FREE membership plugin that is packed full of features – and is regarded by many as one of the best membership plugin options available on the market. The more we learned, the more we recognized the benefits it could bring you as a LearnDash user.
The team behind PMP (Jason & Kim Coleman) are top-class as well.
With PMP, you can:
- Create unlimited membership levels
- Run membership reports
- Offer discounts for membership levels
- Integrate with popular services like MailChimp & Infusionsoft
- And much more!
Also, just like LearnDash, PMP is WordPress Multisite compatible (an essential feature for any WordPress plugin), so you can truly maximize your learning network.
How does it work?
Getting started is easy, all you need to do is:
- Install/Activate LearnDash
- Install/Activate PaidMembershipsPro
- Install/Activate our Integration
Now, when you create a membership level, you can associate it to one (or more) courses. When someone purchases a membership level from PMP, they will now be auto-enrolled into your course.
How do I get started?
We have included instructions and a video on our support site so that you can get started quickly.
Tools & Experience = Success
Our goal is to always give you access to the tools necessary to make your WordPress LMS a success – but we understand that an LMS is more than just having the tools, but also about having the support to back it up.
Don’t ever hesitate to take advantage of our deep learning industry experience and contact us via the forums or help desk whenever you feel in a jam, or even if you just want to exchange ideas.
As always though, you can expect us to continue to refine LearnDash – in fact, we are hard at work on a particular feature that we know you are going to love!
Until next time!
