It’s raining updates!

Two of our most popular plugins and leading LearnDash extensions – Instructor Role and Group Registration – have undergone major updates.

With their latest versions, the plugins provide support for course sells using Easy Digital Downloads.

LearnDash owners using Easy Digital Downloads can now seamlessly integrate the multiple instructor role or group registration functionality into their LMS.


Good Just Got Better

Out-of-the-box, LearnDash was suitably built for single course administrators.

However, several users were missing out on the multiple instructor functionality – wherein users could sign up as teachers or faculty members and add their own courses.

We built the Instructor role plugin to cater to this very audience. The plugin – although not dependant on WooCommerce – was made compatible with WooCommerce:

  • allowing instructors to set up paid courses in WooCommerce
  • and LMS admins to set instructor commissions on courses purchased through WooCommerce.

With Group Registration, we introduced the option for users to bulk purchase courses and enrol students. This plugin was built as an extension to LearnDash and WooCommerce.

While both these plugins, made life simple for LearnDash LMS owners using WooCommerce, there were several others who were missing out!

Why Easy Digital Downloads?

With over 50,000+ active users, Easy Digital Downloads is a leading e-commerce solution for businesses looking to sell digital products.

For us here at WisdmLabs, an integration with EDD for our LearnDash plugins, was always in the development pipeline. But with several pre-sale inquiries, this functionality got bumped up the list. 🙂



Instructor Role for LearnDash ver. 3.0.0

With version 3.0.0 of the Instructor Role plugin, instructors/teachers can now sell courses through EDD. Instructors commissions will be auto-calculated for courses sold through EDD as well.

Make sure you checkout the plugin’s documentation for details.


But that’s not all. We have a minor improvement for existing Instructor Roles users!

Now, all instructor communication emails to students will contain the instructor’s personal id, instead of the admin id.


Group Registration for LearnDash ver. 2.0.0

The Group Registration extension for LearnDash has been integrated with Easy Digital Downloads in version 2.0.0.


Now, LearnDash admins can set up courses in EDD, which can be purchased in bulk using the Group Registration plugin. More on this is available on the plugin’s detailed documentation page.


Next Steps

Well, if you were waiting for this awesome functionality, all you’ve got to do is update the plugins to their latest versions, or purchase them right away! 😀
