September 20th, 2021 Announcements

We are thrilled to announce that LearnDash has joined the Liquid Web family, and are beyond excited at what this means for not only you as a LearnDash user, but also for your learners taking your LearnDash powered courses!

Since our inception, we have had one goal: to give course creators like you the ability to create unparalleled online learning experiences. Over the years, we have brought unmatched innovation in this area to both the e-learning and WordPress industries.

While e-learning has always been steadily on the rise, the situation in the world today further highlights the importance of online education and the tools that serve that market. We are passionate about this industry and are always looking for ways that we can serve those of you in it, better.

By joining Liquid Web, LearnDash becomes part of one of the biggest names in the WordPress industry. This gives us confidence in both the conservation and permanency of LearnDash far into the future so that we can continue serving the industry we are so passionate about.

What to expect in this new chapter of LearnDash.

In the immediate future you will not notice anything different to the LearnDash product or service.

The same great team is in place to continue our mission of creating award-winning online learning experiences. We will continue our development trajectory that we have in place, including but is not limited to the new Course Grid experience (Q4 2021), ProPanel 3.0 (Q1 2022), and the game changing LearnDash 4.0 (Q1 2022) – which will bring you dynamic learning paths.

Being part of Liquid Web means that we now have more resources so that our mission will be amplified! Going forward, you can expect more great features faster than ever before.

We are incredibly grateful to you for trusting in LearnDash for your online courses, and are excited at what this acquisition means for you and your online training programs. The LearnDash community has never been stronger, and the future has never been so bright!

Much appreciated Kyle – thank you! đŸ™‚

Totally agree with Kyle. This is great news indeed. Also there’s the fact that Chris Lema is stepping in as General Manager.
Congratulations Justin. LearnDash couldn’t be in better hands.

Thank you for the kind words, Angel. And you’re right: Chris stepping in as GM is a great thing!

I must have missed that post from Chris Lema. I’ve been following him for years and that he is GM for learndash is fantastic. I saw in that post that they also acquired Kadence so I wonder whether there’ll be a deeper integration coming with that theme. In any case, feeling quite excited about LD’s future

All the best for you in your future projects, Justin.

Congrats to everyone in the LD family. Looking forward to great things!
