WordPress LMS Latest Update

First, I want to apologize for the lack of updates recently.  There have been a lot of conversations happening in the past couple of weeks in regards to the project’s direction.  Before getting into the update, I want to thank those of you who have written and expressed an opinion regarding the project, features, and general desires.  We want to make one thing is clear: WPLMS is committed to providing a product/service of great value… and we are committed to doing it right.

Which brings me to the biggest news of this update.  Since taking on this project, the scope has extended quite a bit, and as such, it just is not feasible to have a summer release date.  Technically, we probably could release in the summer this year, but the product would be sub-par and cause more headaches than anything.

First, I want to recognize that this news is frustrating.  Believe me, I know that it stinks waiting for something and then it being delayed.  I sincerely apologize.  It was a tough decision to make, but it was necessary.

On a lighter note, as we get through development and alpha testing, we will be actively seeking some power users as beta testers.  Many of you have expressed an interest in this area, so keep an eye out for a future email in this area for more information – the beta testers will undoubtedly help shape this product.

Hope you all have a great weekend. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to ask.

  1. Hello,

    I’m currently building a website for a client who teaches high school courses, and is also a blogger. My project is to set up an LMS, theme it and integrate it seamlessly with his blog.

    I have experience from Chamilo (both flavors) and Moodle, but not any of them is quite what I need, nor can be integrated as easily and productively with a blogging platform, giving the feeling of one website.

    I would really love to see your LMS for wordpress. Unfortunately my project is due on August 20th. If you begin beta testing before that time, please do keep me in mind.

    1. Hi Rina-
      Unfortunately we will not be into beta testing by then, but using BuddyPress in conjunction with your client’s project will be a good place to start and a great way to add a social component to the learning. Feel free to email me if you have options or want to discuss further.

      Take care!
