WP Courseware: Learning Management System That Works Seamlessly Inside WordPress Platform

Overall Good Value: Buying WP Courseware was money well spent. A real plus is the two-license scheme -- I can use the software on two sites without paying extra. Being able to import users (and slot them into course enrollment) using CSV reduces work, especially when moving from a different system or when offering bonus courses and you don't want the students to have to sign up again. Yes, I would highly recommend taking a look at this LMS plugin if you're planning to build your courseware site on the WordPress platform.

Pros

In the market for a learning management system (LMS) that could be used on the WordPress platform, I purchased WP Courseware to use on two e-learning sites, one where online training is the entire focus and another one where training is just one component of the site. WP Courseware works well in both scenarios. Good Integrations: The developers of WP Courseware offer numerous integrations with other popular WordPress plugins. For ecommerce, WP Courseware is integrated with WooCommerce on my technology training site and integrated with WP eStore (the Tips & Tricks HQ version) on my medical field site. The ability to work with both of these shopping carts seamlessly was a big differentiator for me. I'm also pleased with the integration to my membership software of choice, WP eMember. Pleasant course-creation experience: The bells-and-whistles are actually functionality that no course creator wants to do without. For example, creating a certificate of completion is considered an extra in similar courseware tools, but it is a staple in WP Courseware. Customizable and Flexible: I like that the course outline page can be placed on any page in the WordPress site. WP Courseware uses "shortcodes," which gives me control over where courses, login boxes, progress bars, etc. show up. WP Courseware is flexible in how my students consume their training materials, whether to drip-feed course content, follow a linear progression or allow students to jump around at will.

Cons

In order to get certain functionalities, WP Courseware relies on a third-party vendor. That's not so bad but I think this particular functionality should be baked into the core plugin, even if they have to charge a few more dollars. That alleviates the need to add another customer support layer into the mix.

WPCourseware Gets the Job Done

Nice interface for creating courses. Easy duplication and modification of courses. Nice look and feel to the end user. Easily customized via CSS if needed (I like it out of the box). Great customer service. Works well with S2Member (my preferred membership software). Quizzes are customizable to a high degree. Course material can be quite varied (I use videos).

Pros

WPCourseware has excellent features and looks professional. As a developer I always use this plugin - and I've done extensive research on self-hosted course creation products. I feel that it is great value and am a firm supporter of this company's work. I was an early adopter and it was perfect for my business and development business needs to have a great product to recommend.

Cons

There are no cons for me - I use it for my own teaching business as well. I have tried most of the other plugins for self-hosted course creation and I still find WPCourseware to be the best.

WP Courseware is one of the oldest and it shows

It was bad. I will never journey there again.

Pros

In terms of cost, WP Courseware is one of the most cost effective LMS systems for WordPress.

Cons

Apart from the price, there is really nothing to like about this software. The setup is clunky, getting it up and running is not intuitive. Being a PHP and WordPress developer, I thought I would be fine, but that was not the case. If you want to do anything beyond what they have thought, you are pretty much on your own.

Have been using WP Courseware since the beginning and love it

It just works - I love that I'm not left wondering if it will break and suddenly I would have a customer support nightmare on my hands. Dependability is everything with a WP Plugin.

Pros

There are a lot of things that can go wrong with a Word Press site - and after about 6 years, thankfully WP Courseware has been solid as a rock throughout the whole time, serving thousands of students and delivering hundreds of courses.
