LearnDash and WordPress continue to make strides in the traditional learning management market.
I can’t help but laugh a little about this now. They were in many ways correct as back in 2012 this was still very much how people used WordPress.
In fact, LearnDash is the only WordPress-based solution to be recognized.
I had a glance at the other names mentioned and the list included many of the familiar venture-funded behemoths. Not there is anything wrong with receiving venture capital of course. I merely mention it to put into perspective what our bootstrapped learning management system has been able to accomplish in this ultra-competitive industry.
Without question, this recognition is owed to those of you who are using LearnDash to power your learning programs.
The programs I have seen created with LearnDash are not only inspiring, they are downright impressive. Everything from large companies training new employees and customers to entrepreneurs breaking free from the nine to five grind by selling courses in their area of expertise. What’s more, the people who use LearnDash are as helpful as they are intelligent as evident by the welcoming community of our Facebook group.
While ultimately it is up to the LearnDash team to continue developing our software in relevant ways, we are so grateful to the suggestions and ideas our users share with us on a daily basis. Their comments don’t go unnoticed as we incorporate some of these ideas into our offering. Our software’s evolution is in many ways a product of the people who use it.
And it’s here where I think WordPress and LearnDash are distinct when comparing us to traditional platforms like Blackboard, Moodle, or Litmos. WordPress is a sharing, idea-driven community. It invites opinions and encourages creativity. This affords both WordPress and LearnDash the ability to be nimble and relevant in development.
So whether you are thinking about creating your own online course, or you want to transition your existing learning program onto a platform withe more flexibility, I encourage you to contact us to tell us more about your project — we’d love to hear from you!
