With a New Website Comes New Goals

Notice anything different?

If this is your first time visiting LearnDash, then probably not.

However, if you have been here before then you likely see that we have done a bit of updating!

It is with great pleasure that I get to write today to unveil the new design of LearnDash.com, and not just because of the fresh new look but because with the new design comes our updated approach to the e-learning market.

But first I want to extend a huge thank you to James Tryon of web design firm Easily Amused. James and his team have some serious talent.

The WordPress LMS industry is growing up… Because of YOU!

For those of you who may not know the LearnDash story, we started from a humble blog back in 2012 long before a “WordPress LMS” was even consider a thing.

It was an idea that evolved as I was working as an e-learning consultant for large corporations. The more I worked with clunky learning management systems, the more I thought: “why not WordPress?”

WordPress… isn’t that for blogs!?

I was actually asked this by a former colleague when I told him about the idea. It’s kind of funny to think back on now, the landscape is vastly different than it was five years ago.

LearnDash has evolved into a robust and flexible learning management system powering online training programs of all sizes.

Today we see our software being used by large organizations, major universities, small businesses, and entrepreneurs alike. Countless numbers of people have taken an online course powered by LearnDash.

It is people like you, the course creators and LMS builders that have proven the “WordPress as a learning management system” concept. Online learning must adapt to the learner. More and more people are realizing that the hosted cookie-cutter systems cannot handle these needs…but WordPress can! 🙂

It is because of this flexibility that Troy Dean surpasses 7-figures from his LearnDash powered courses and why Matthew Woodward had a $100,000 launch.

The capabilities of WordPress as an LMS makes it possible for Zac Gordon to deliver the most impressive online courses dedicated to learning Javascript.

The ability to offer truly custom learning experiences is why Fortune 500 company Infusionsoft uses WordPress & LearnDash for their training programs, and why the University of Michigan chooses the same for their students.

The use-cases of people using WordPress as a learning management system are so incredibly varied because WordPress can bend and shift to fit nearly every learning situation.

Making LearnDash & the WordPress LMS Mainstream

We love the WordPress industry and plan to continue our trajectory as the “go-to” choice for anyone serious about online courses. This year we are adding an element to our approach to the online learning space.

Not too long ago we were nominated as a Top E-Learning Tool in the LMS category by ELearning Magazine. In fact, LearnDash was the only WordPress solution across any of the categories.

Also nominated were many traditional hosted solutions backed by millions of dollars in venture capital funding and startups out of Silicon Valley.
This is a market we feel can benefit immensely from WordPress & LearnDash.

Switching to WordPress & LearnDash

Maybe you are on the fence about using WordPress and LearnDash. Perhaps you are currently using another LMS that you have outgrown. Or maybe you are just tired of paying monthly fees in perpetuity for features that just barely do what you want.

Listen, no one knows better than I do that WordPress and LearnDash work, and it works well. Still, that doesn’t mean it is the perfect solution for every project. Here’s what you can do:

To those of you who have already joined us, I want to finish this post by personally thanking you. LearnDash doesn’t exist without you putting your trust in us and our vision.

Until next time!
