LearnDash Gets Even Better!
I’m a big fan of WordPress being used as a learning platform and now other plugin other than LearnDash is an example of how to do it right.
Today brings a great update from Justin the big cheese at LearnDash who just let us know that LearnDash just got better!
Justins’ release gives us a quick heads up on what’s changed in this latest version.
Certificate Enhancements – Phase I
- We are happy to report that you can now assign certificates to COURSES without the need of a quiz. Simply assign the certificate from the EDIT COURSE page:
- There are also new shortcodes available so that you can include additional course information on your certificates.
- This allows you to pull certain course information and place it onto a certificate, including:
- course title
- completed on (date)
- cumulative score
- cumulative points
- cumulative total points
- cumulative percentage
- cumulative timespent
- aggregate percentage
- aggregate score
- aggregate points
- aggregate total points
- aggregate timespent
Course Completion Messages
Included in this new version is the ability to present your learners with a custom message on the course page the moment that they successfully complete the content.
This is a great way to cross promote other courses, provide learners with a special prize or gift, or any other incentive.
Complete Code Update
This updated code-base is more consistent with WordPress conventions, restructuring of files & folders, consistent spacing, as well as DocBlock documentation for developers throughout it all.
Stay tuned there’s lots more coming from the LearnDash Crew!
