The #1 choice of Fortune 500 companies, major universities, training organizations, and entrepreneurs worldwide for creating (and selling) their online courses with WordPress.
I like the fact that given the options that they provide, it's extremely affordable and offers a tonne of great features for which they can charge a lot more. They have enough addons and more to create a professional eLearning site and give users the option to monetize specific courses easily.
It's quite challenging for a new user to get used to the Learndash environment without having much technical knowledge.
It's complete and there are a lot of usefull updates!!
...nothing specific, it's perfect for everybody who want's to sale there online courses!!
LearnDash was easy to install and work with right out of the box! It is logical and arranged in a manner that is easy to understand and implement.
No cons really - we just took our time and walked through the implementation process.
We needed many features that were hard to find in SaaS based LMS solutions and WP plugins. Here's a list of features that pushed us towards LearnDash because it worked with our stack or is helping us upgrade it:
My biggest con is that this is a WP plugin and I'm hesitant to run mission critical software on WordPress. But since all the SaaS LMS' solutions were missing critical features, I decided to give this a shot.
Very easy to setup. Very helpful instructional videos included right inside LearnDash too. Nice features like groups, quizzes, and certificates.
Wish there was some built-in reporting for the site owner on the Basic license.
So far I can't find a con, at least for my needs right now. I am still building out courses and it is working great
- Ease of use and set-up
- Sometimes the features are a bit restricting
Working with LearnDash is very easy. It works very similar to the other functions in Wordpress. You create a course, add Lessons and then Topics for each lesson. For example, the course could be about How to Be a Real Estate Investor. In that course, you might have multiple lessons like How to Flip Houses, How to But Rental Property, How to Finance Real Estate, etc.
Here's what I don't like. It's ugly. The user interface is plain and not very intuitive. You have to buy other add on's so users can do things like take notes, and so that you can begin to have an interface that looks better than native Wordpresss. In other words... ugly.
I like the ease of use, the ability to make courses progressive or not, add quizzes at both the topic and module level as well as certificates upon completion. I also like that there are several plugins that have been developed to offer additional capability.
I have found that clients anticipate having a large user base in the future, as well as having a need to offer larger clients with multiple locations the ability to have administration capabilities at both the local and the corporate levels, which even the most feature-rich plugins do not offer as of yet.
We decided to use LearnDash for our internal training, and couldn't be happier. It has a long list of features including quizzes and lesson timers, and it integrates perfectly into our existing WordPress site.
LearnDash may be a bit tricky to set up if you are not confident with WordPress plugins, but maybe this is your chance to learn!
A great tool that allows you to create an educational learning platform with videos, text, quizzes, etc. This tool also integrates with many of the big players such as MemberPress and BuddyPress.
We use builder tools that are currently not allowed to be used from within the LearnDash system.
There's a slight learning curve. Nothing too overwhelming!
Create your own course and charge for it. Easy to use course builder.
I have not experienced any problems yet.
It takes a lot of work to set up at first.
After watching a quick Youtube video on how to create a Learning Management Site. After that it was pretty simplistic to get started. It worked well and we were able to set up our courses, lessons, and quizzes. Everything was easy to connect and create a good flow for each product and lesson we were wanting to cover.
Some of the notification features didn't really work and we had to get additional plugins to complete the type of automation we were looking for.
I can build any number of courses and plug them into my WordPress website. It's easy to use and flexible.
no cons. This plugin is easy to use and works great!
Easy to set up and fantastic support if and when you need it.
Not too much at all - it has been nice and simple and if I get stuck I know I can rely on support for prompt and fantastic customer support.
Once you get your setup complete, the front end of the site looks and works great. You can integrate with Memberpress and woocommerce which is a plus.
Organization of courses and lessons is completely horrible and non existent. Trying to edit permissions for accessibility can be tricky as well.
However, we had to switch back to its competitor. Our web team reported that the product is not as theme-compatible/customizable as some of its competitors, especially when it comes to the eCommerce portion of selling courses via WooCommerce. Unfortunately this realization came after the 30 day mark, so we did not receive our refund for the year. However, otherwise their customer service was great.
The software is easy to use and the documentation is pretty straight-forward it works well with WordPress. Its definitely one of the plugins I recommend to clients who want to host their own content instead of using an outside party. The price is also really good for what you get, which you can easily make back depending on how you price your offerings.
Though there is good documentation customizing certain features can be tricky especially if there is a conflict with another plugin.
Great platform that is robust and easy to use.
I have not found anything about the software I do not like.
Courses easy to set up
Came across module drip issue, but dev team was ON it!
I love the newest 3.0 update! It gives the interface a much better design and aesthetic. This makes it easier to navigate and it helps make LearnDash more user friendly.
It would be awesome if LearnDash came with a template for a user dashboard that we can just input to a page and direct people to.
I liked this program until I looked at other options. There are so many things that LearnDash could be able to do.
It is so complicated to use if you don't have a high grasp of wordpress. We are now switching to Edvance360 which is much more user-friendly and has so many more features. by LearnDash on 28/06/2018 HI Randall, I am sorry to hear that you are no longer using LearnDash. For future reference, there is indeed a setting to send notifications when a quiz is complete. It's an option when creating the quiz.
LearnDash is easy to use, has many functions that I need and enjoy and the support is excellent. I highly recommend this software to anyone thinking about creating an LMS.
Can't think of anything meaningful or worthy to write here.
Turning in and managing assignments is a bit clunky...no native Google integration. Also, wish there were more question types available for quizzes.
To know exactly what I don't need or want from a plugin.
The time-consuming inefficiency for the need to switch from/between courses, lessons, topics, and quizzes. questions every single time. Yet the worst is customer support. I have been played for a fool for 2 weeks. by LearnDash on 11/11/2019 Hi Richard, We are sorry to hear that LearnDash didn't work for your project :( There was a conflict occurring on your website resulting in the reported behavior. Seeing as you didn't want to change the configuration, we issued a refund for LearnDash. Best of luck with your future course endeavors!
I like that LearnDash is one fee and they don't take any % from sales. It's easy to implement and after reading through the documentation, it was easy to understand how to use.
For first time WordPress users it can be a bit of a learning curve, but the documentation offered by LearnDash is quite thorough.
I bought 2 another WordPress LMS but ur system it's pretty all the e-learn community need . It have the taste of many time inverted very well to have a very impressive LMS.
Specially for my project: i need to have freedom to organize the quizes like topics, buy it have some restriction and put it the bottom.
I considered a few learning management systems to run wpmrr.com but in the end, it was an easy decision to go with LearnDash. I was not looking forward to the technical implementation of my online course, but LD made it so, so easy. Plus there's a great team behind it that cares deeply about your success as a user. I couldn't recommend highly enough!
I wish the support documents were a bit more robust and took edge cases into account, but overall I'm very happy with them!
No one, and I mean no one, knows more about e-learning than the people behind LearnDash. They focus everything they have on solving real problems for real e-learning site owners. If I have questions, not just about the product, but about e-learning in general, they are always my first resource.
Almost all of my critiques of LearnDash have been small usability and code based issues which are actively being resolved in the upcoming 3.0 release.
This is one of the easiest LMS's to implement if you have someone in your team who knows how to use WordPress.
It doesn't have all the bells and whistles like a Moodle LMS but has all the fundamentals to give your workers an online space to learn on.
It is just great value for money - what you get even as standard is really good. Loads of free plugins which are great. And I really like Notes and Private Sessions paid plugins. The support is also very good and genuinely helpful
The only tricky part was working out the plugins needed for user registration, but there is an excellent guide on line. Like with all Wordpress tech theres always a few different options and it takes a while to figure out what is best for you.
Customer service with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], ease of use, and visual appearance are pros!
There is a learning curve for me being a psychologist rather than a programmer.
I wish that they had more case studies available to show people out the gate. If there were more examples, I think more people would choose to use them.
It does the job nicely without an overload of bells and whistles. One of the main things I appreciate is the great tech support they give and have given since I've been using this software several years ago.
As long as they keep helping me when I have issues, I'm very happy with it.
Customer service is very impotent for me, that I don't feel stupid when I ask all my questions and I am very satisfied the the help I got from support so far, I think I have got fast help even with the time difference. I have a lot to learn about LearnDash, but it seams easy to navigate in. I am not an expert but I manage.
I just think that the dokumentation is a bit outdated, it could be better. But again did support help me.
A few more themes would have been helpful, although the default theme is pretty decent.
We ran into a compatibility issue with our event software. It ended up breaking the software, and we had to axe the event system we had put in place because we wanted to use this LMS over others. We also ran into a problem where we couldn't create a class online to register with, and then host the classes offline, manually entering a grade and pass/fail for in-person testing very well. Our specific use-case ended up being the one that this software couldn't handle.
Simplicity, functionality and loads of avaliable plugins to add feature
Not that I dislike it but it is difficult in beginning to know whicht theme and server provider to choose and why it is so important to make the right choice.
This LMS is easy to set up and is extensible. There are all sorts of plugins and add-ons you can use with it to make it meet your needs.
Sometimes you might encounter a particular question type or need that isn't supported. However, you can overcome this with add-ons or even creating something custom.
The options for customizing the software is broad. Excellent support
I would like to see more options for adjusting what course content can be seen and not see before enrollment. Course registration needs to have options that are uncoupled from the WordPress user system.
So far, a minor point is that LearnDash could establish a holistic approach (what they are already doing) but to go further forward in this direction (e.g. user registration) that at the end, I only need some more plugins to get all the features I would like.
The only con is that we didn’t start integrating with LearnDash sooner.
The flexibility of integration with WordPress, with WooCommerce and WPFusion
Nothing, everything is working like I need it to.
We made a in-house LMS website with Learndash as the core. Its really easy to setup and use. The support team is very helpful. Although we tried most of all LMSes available in market which includes Learnpress, Sensei etc, I found Learndash much easier. Easy documentations too.
Certificate creation is kind of old school.
LearnDash is easy to implement and maintain, even if you have limited experience with website technology.
I wish there was more detailed reporting.
Some functions might appear tricky at the beginning but nothing you can't solve with their fantastic customer support.
I like the intuitive nature of this software and that it works with payment processors out of the box. I like that my theme software of choice (Astra) provides a good starting point and sop far very happy.
Nothing so far. I am still new to using it but don't expect anything will be an issue based on my experience to date.
LearnDash is profoundly simple. The course builder allows you to build on the fly and brainstorm with a Team or simply dump ideas and then drag 'n' drop or add content to populate. So simple!!!
There's not much to not like. Learning some of the features to switch on or off was my only hold up.
What I like most about LearnDash is the ease of use to implement and setup courses. The training videos that are included inside the plugin made learning to use it and build the courses simple. The plugin itself works perfectly, and we didn't have any issues building our courses. Our users (500+ developers) have had no issues when taking the courses and everything works like a charm.
No complaints at all so far! When using an LMS plugin, you just want it to work without hassles or needing to contact support. And LearnDash provided a great experience start-to-finish.
Simplicity. It's a straight forward product for both the student and the teacher, or the person developing the course. Does everything you need, but also stays easy enough to use without a bunch of clutter or options you don't need.
Can't think of anything, at one point we had a few students miss the mark complete button on a lesson but that's probably more to do with our design.
I love how easy the software is to customize and integrate into other systems such as woocommerce and membership type plugins.
I really do not have cons about the software.
The only minor issues I have is customization. The simplicity of setup by using WordPress also means that you have a harder time customizing things to exactly what you want. Though, to me (and most of our users/customers) the default setup is typically pretty good anyway.
Very little. Of course there is always feature requests, but currently, LearnDash does everything I want and need it to do.
Having used other educational software earlier where you have to adapt what you want to do to how the software lets you do it, it is both refreshing and extremely rewarding to use a learning platform that tailors to you need, instead of the other way around.
It can be fiddly to set up a system built on open source where different plugins and software has to be 100 % compatible.
It did what I needed 95% of the way I needed it done.
The current version wasn't available 5 years ago. It still had some growing to do.
Easy to setup, able to re-use different lessons for different courses.
Not able to create the lessons titles inside the course creation.
We tried Thinkific and Teachable before we started using LearDash. Nothing compares to LearnDash. If you want to control your content and user experience, LearnDash is the best option.
Reporting tools could be better, now we are using a different plugin.
LearnDash has plenty of APIs to do all sorts of fancy things. For other LMSes, I had to write a lot of custom code to do what LearnDash does right out of the box. I also love how flexible LearnDash is. There's a lot of plugins that work alongside LearnDash.
There is a learning curve to setting it up. There's a lot of options. I also wish that Learndash does user management in a much more streamline way. Right now, you have to modify every user individually, or build a script to manage users.
I'm a WordPress implementer. A couple years ago I was approached by a client who wanted to develop an online course for non-native English speakers to study for their certifications. I'd never developed online courses before so I had to do A LOT of research.
There's no support for multiple teachers per course. Lifter's frontend student dashboards are nicer.
The finished product. My workshops have exactly the components I wish: As many lessons per course as I wish, installing video and audio recordings, quizzes, and forums. Once I learned how to use the software, it leads to a superb product.
Over-designed! On the whole, from my perspective, LearnDash is difficult to learn; an upgrade has resulted in far too many choices. For example, used to be that I could easily upload a FILL IN THE BLANKS quiz. Learning the new method, with upgrade, was far more difficult. Each question takes about 6 extra steps, compared to one step previously. As an educator, I do find it offensive that it's supposed to be desirable to copy quiz parts and, apparently, crank out as many quizzes as possible. Why not make that a plug-in, rather than standard operating procedure for those of us who create quality workshops and prefer to not over-complicate.
It allowed me to create courses for my clients right on their websites without needing to use a 3rd party. So everything is housed and branded for them specifically.
It isn't user friendly if you're not tech savvy. There's a lot of room for growth on the design front. by LearnDash on 05/02/2019 Thanks for your review Anissa! At the time of this review we are currently finishing up LD3. This will greatly improve the templates/design for the front-end, and also make things easier on the back-end for those not as familiar with WordPress. We think you'll really like these improvements! :)
It's easy to install and setup is pretty intuitive. It's easy to customize.
I had some minor issues related to design customization but support was quick and provided good solutions.
Suitable for small, internal, and experimental projects. Lacks the sophistication to create a large, scalable, and sellable products.
Unfortunately while it is possible to sell courses through woocommerce, doing so will remove the listed features of the learndash product. Most businesses will end up selling through woocommerce to unlock automations and the power of wordpress (ie adding customers to mailchimp, adding the sale to accounting software, directing a customer post sales path etc). Unfortunately once you make a product available for sale through woocommerce many of the listed product features fail. Most notably the course prerequisite feature. Users can purchase any course available in woocommerce regardless of any restriction or settings made in Learndash. by LearnDash on 13/12/2018 We are really sorry that our product didn't meet the specific needs of your unique use-case. We hope that you have found a solution that works for you.We wanted to address a couple points from this review since it contains misleading information that might confuse others:- Course prerequisites still work when selling with WooCommerce. Content cannot be viewed until all of the determined conditions are first met.-Using WooCommerce to sell courses doesn't expose a business to legal issues. If it is preferred that a product in Woo not be displayed until a prerequisite is completed first then this is indeed possible using LearnDash features.
Structure in a way that it works well for any scale. We've used it on small, one course projects and projects with dozens of courses with unique workflows and needs. It's a great fit in all situations.
Nothing comes to mind, we've always found a way to make things work.
Provide all the features I need for my project.
Could be easier to use
It works with Wordpress so has a familiar layout to those familiar with Wordpress. Visually it looks good to the end user. Open source, so it was fairly easy to modify for our needs.
Seems limited when compared to Moodle and this is more expensive. The structure of the courses is pretty limited, for example you can't require only certain activities to be completed in order for a course to be marked completed, all sub-sections are required for completion.
I found creating and managing the quizzes not very intuitive. Also, no matter what I do, I cannot get the software to push out notifications when students have completed homework. I need to check it daily which is not ideal because it means I have to do a lot of digging to find what is outstanding.
Pricing model is quite awkward. I can't really find a good enough use case for a 1-site licenses vs pro 5-site license, unless I'm a developer/service provider
LearnDash is a product full of features that make it a great choice for many LMS systems, such as:
Being a WordPress plugin makes it less flexible in some cases. For example, creating vanity URLs might not be as straightforward as it is in other systems. Also, many LMS features are missing such as creating rubrics, which might be critical for educational organizations
Building a learning portal on WordPress is brilliant. The core features of LearnDash in creating courses is great. Good quiz engine and solid features for offering and tracking courses with clear progress indicators.
The most challenging parts of LearnDash are managing WordPress and Plugins. The challenge of adding more and more features with plugins is the administrative maintenance it requires. Users just need to be very clear that unlike using a vendor LMS that you just upload content, they must be prepared to get "under the hood" to maintain the system. This is common with professional WordPress Administration, but learning professionals who just used an LMS may not be clear on the fact that this does require some web administration skills.
The plugin and 3rd party modules are limited. Would be nice if they will have a larger library of extensions. Reports are also a bit limited to the basic ones
Support to Drip-feed Content, Ease of Use, TinCan API Compliance, Membership & eCommerce plugin integration, Customer Support
Quizzing Module, Documentation needs improvement
