LearnDash is a course creation and learning management system built for educators, by educators. One of our values at LearnDash is to make course creation easier and more efficient. Our goal with every new update is to lean into our roots as educators to create features that make course creation easy for you and engaging for your learners. 

We thrive off of innovation that helps course creators like you build better and launch faster. In addition, we also want to keep you updated on how we’re improving our product for you with our What’s New LearnDash report.

This report will cover new features from our latest update and share best practices for implementing these improvements in your LearnDash courses. Let’s dive in on how we did that.

Bulk Editing 

Sometimes when you have a lot of courses, lessons, or even groups on your site, it’s pretty challenging to change one or a couple of settings on those courses, lessons, and groups. You have to go into them one by one.

Bulk editing changes that. With just a few clicks, you can easily change the Access Mode, Autostart, Video Controls Display, and Video Resume.

Check out the LearnDash Bulk Editing documentation to learn how to use this feature.

Course Cloning is here!

Have you built a LearnDash course and wished you could duplicate that course to create a new one? Well with our latest update, you no longer have to wish you had that feature. You can now easily start building new courses by simply cloning an existing course, and just update the content. Plus we didn’t stop at cloning courses, you can also clone your existing lessons, topics, and quizzes with just one click of a button.

Drip Content for all Post Types!

Delivering a course is like telling a story. And every great story creates anticipation and keeps your learners coming back for more. As a teacher/learning instructor, sometimes you have to slow down or speed up the storytelling process, which can help control the timing and maintain engagement. 

Dripping your course content allows you to tell a better story to your learners. With the latest update, not only can you drip lessons but you can also drip content on topics and quizzes, too.

You can find the configuration option for each of these in their respective settings menus. Check out the LearnDash Drip Schedule documentation to learn about the scheduling options for dripping content to your learners.

Purchase Invoice Emails

Sending invoice emails makes your course business look more professional and provides your students with confirmation of their purchase. Our latest update allows you to easily send your students invoice emails with just a quick toggle in the LearnDash settings. You can also customize these emails with your logo and include additional information.

Check out the LearnDash invoice emails documentation to learn more and set up this feature.

Razorpay Payment Gateway

Since its inception in 2014, Razorpay is the only payments solution in India that allows businesses to accept, process, and disburse payments. With Razorpay, you have access to all payment modes, including credit and debit cards, UPI, and popular mobile wallets. With our latest update, you can accept payments with Razorpay for your LearnDash courses without having to integrate with other payment platforms such as WooCommerce.

Will we also be able to clone groups? I was using Wisdm Lab’s cloning plugin previously, but it’s giving me an error on the last LD update to 4.1.2. So if LD 4.2 has cloning, then that solves my problem with the courses. Just need to know if groups can also be cloned.
