What kind of media can be used in LearnDash courses?

Since LearnDash runs on WordPress, any WordPress supported media can be used in your courses. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Images: jpg, jpeg, png, gif (svg requires a plugin)
  • Documents: pdf, psd (Adobe Photoshop), all Microsoft Word, PowerPoint & Excel formats
  • Audio: mp3, m4a, ogg, wav
  • Video: mp4, m4v, mov, wmv (but we typically recommend a video hosting service, like Vimeo, Wistia, Amazon S3, etc.)

Our automatic video progression feature supports the following video platforms:

  • Self-hosted videos (uploaded to the Media Library)
  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Wistia
  • Amazon S3

HTML5 packages published in programs like Articulate Storyline & Adobe Captivate can also be inserted into LearnDash content, as well as any third-party media that can be embedded via an <iframe> or <script>.
