Listen to this article

employee training platform

WordPress has become one of the leading CMSs for e-learning sites throughout the years. This was possible because of so many factors such as its easiness to merge with other plugins. WordPress led to the development of LearnDash. LearnDash is a corporate training and skill development learning management system. LearnDash development has facilitated and relished e-learning for everybody. The future for e-learning is bright as advancements in fields like artificial intelligence and virtual reality are increasing.

Pre-requisites

Thirdly, for organizational training, WordPress makes it easy to include custom plugins such as LearnDash. Lastly, the combination of WordPress and LearnDash is better than open-source and cloud-based LMSs because of its easiness to bring the e-Learning experience to an organization.

#1 Pick an eLearning theme

theme design

After installing WordPress and the LearnDash plugin, it’s now time to install an appropriate theme for your site. A theme is a WordPress package that beautifies your site and enables you to do further customization on the looks of your website.

We will be using the eLumine theme which is a LearnDash theme focused and equipped with a Unyson page builder. The eLumine theme is both recommended and advantage to corporate training for the reasons below:

– It comes with a ready-to-use starting site template.
– It is simple to modify to meet the needs of your company.
– It gives several layouts to focus on the details of the LearnDash course page.
– It offers an advanced course and quiz module for LearnDash, as well as a complete gamification experience.
– It has a responsive layout that adapts to all device screen sizes.
– It improves the readability of your courses and provides a fantastic look and feel for your students to appreciate by encouraging student involvement.
– It also offers a variety of color options from which to pick or use a new one by importing easy CSS custom color files.

Theme Installation and Activation

  • Go to the Admin Dashboard of your website.

eLumine Admin Dashboard

  • Navigate to Appearance > Themes.

Theme selection

  • Click Add New button.
  • Now click on the Upload Theme button.
  • Upload the zip file and click Install Now.

Please note that this method requires certain conditions to be met, such as the PHP Memory limit should be 256M and Max upload file size should be 64M. Refer to this link for more details.

Next, you will need to activate the eLumine theme and you do that with the following steps:

  • Once the theme is active, you should see a new menu item called WisdmLabs License Options.

eLumine license options

  • Open this page and enter the license key against eLumine theme.

eLumine key

  • Now, click Activate.
  • You are now ready to use eLumine and will see notifications on the website whenever an update is released.
  • Please remember to take a full backup of your website before updating the theme.
  • Having issues activating the theme? Connect with us here.

You’re fine to go if you follow the procedures outlined above. If you are having trouble installing the theme, please see our theme installation guide here.

#2 Set up Instructors to create and manage courses with WISDM Instructor Role

instructor

Your e-Learning business will need instructors with different privileges, especially for corporate training. The instructor will manage the entire course modules and reduce workloads for the admin.

WISDM Instructor Role for LearnDash handles instructorship allocation. It lets you set up Course Instructors who can create, manage, and sell courses, without sharing admin privileges. The instructor role reduces, the workload of managing the entire e-Learning platform for the admin. By doing this saves you time and energy that you can use to focus on other vital aspects like marketing, growth, etc. of your LearnDash website.

To set up an instructor who can create and manage all your courses within your LearnDash you have to follow the steps below:

Creating the Registration Form

– To create a new registration form, click on Add New button.

Instructor registration

You will find yourself on a page which looks like the picture below. Give a suitable title and choose for your instructor’s registration form the relevant form fields.

Add new instructor

Click on the Form Settings tab to set user registration settings once all the fields have been added.

save instructor role

On this page, Set the Default User Role setting to Instructor and click on the Create Form button.

Deploying the Instructor Registration Form

deploy instructor

Again when the form has been generated, copy the shortcode by clicking on the clipboard icon next to the Update Form and Preview button.

After this, create a WordPress Page or edit an existing one, depending on where you want to display your Instructor Registration Form.

Now, insert a new shortcode block to the page and paste the copied shortcode in the shortcode block on that page.
Then hit Publish or update the page.

shortcode block

Test your LearnDash Instructor Registration Form

After completing the above steps, visit your page and you will find your Instructor’s registration form with the fields you set up.

instructor registration form check

Fill all the essential fields and click on Submit.

#3 Import Demo content for initial courses set up

Doing all the initial setups yourself could be tedious, however, the eLumine theme offers a demo data import advantage. This process installs the essential pages that come with the theme on your site.

Once you initialize the process of importing demo data, you are presented with three styles that you can choose from namely, the Classic LMS Demo, the Single Instructor LMS Demo, and the Master Course LMS Demo. This is the more reason you should buy the eLumine theme for your LearnDash setup.

Things to remember before installing eLumine demo content

– Make a thorough backup of your website before installing the sample content so that you can simply restore it to the previous stage if something goes wrong.
– LearnDash is a premium plugin that is not included with the theme. As a result, before installing the demo material, ensure that LearnDash is installed and enabled.
– If the LearnDash plugin is not active when demo material is installed, LearnDash-related data (such as courses) will not be imported.
– Make sure your upload directory has standard WordPress file and folder permissions, i.e. the theme should be allowed to receive and store files like images and videos in the upload directory.
– If you want to install content linked to a BuddyPress plugin, please make sure the plugin is active before you begin demo installation.

Demo Installation

Installation Guide for eLumine

For further details on the demo installation process, please read the following steps. You can opt out of resetting eLumine’s website and use an external plugin such as WP Reset. You can immediately utilize Full Install without Website Reset Mode if you have already reset the content with such a plugin.
By going to the Appearance> Theme Setup Menu you can start the demo content installation.
There are now several distinct demo materials based on your requirements.
eLumine Demos

Minimal: The course, goods, etc. are not actually necessary, but simply the most basic items like menus, thematic settings, sample pages, widgets, etc.

Full Without Website Reset: The whole demo contents will be imported to make it precisely like the demo site of eLumine. If you have an existing website, the current information won’t be removed, but new data is created.

Caution: This is not ideal because the sample material was created for websites with no current content. Because you may encounter various difficulties, such as Course-Lesson associations being lost in demo courses imported and other similar concerns, taking a database backup is strongly advised.

Full With Website Reset: Removes all current material and substitutes it with fresh content.

#4 Set up student groups with designated group leaders, with WISDM GR.

You will need to distribute your students in groups when you start your corporate e-learning program. In addition, you must appoint leaders and instructors to such groups.

The Plugin provides the benefit of handling group student registration, assigning Leaders to Groups, managing class registrations, and seeing progress reports with the premium LearnDash Group registration plugin.

That is why the WISDM GR plugin is necessary and is recommended for you.

A standard group option is available for LearnDash, so why pick our plugin? The WISDM GR Plugin allows you to even register students in a bulk and accelerate course registration using LearnDash LMS’s finest Group management feature.

  • To implement this, on the dashboard click on groups and then click on add new.

group registration

This would give you the interface to create and assign group leaders to a group.
After creating the group, navigate to groups and you will see the just created group.

group created

Use the edit as block option to add a group leader to a group from the list.

assigning group leader

Now the group has a group leader, let us proceed to install other relevant plugins to our learning management system.

#5 Set up a learner-instructor networking system with BuddyPress

The BuddyPress plugin is a major element for improving LearnDash corporate training and skills development in your organization. The plugin provides the social network and community for your students on your website. This community will facilitate greater learning advantages among the students. This is how to set up BuddyPress on your LearnDash website.
On a user’s BuddyPress profile page, there are numerous fields like education, achievement, profile, email, residence, Facebook profile link, Twitter profile link, YouTube profile link.
These are specialized fields since they are presented in a distinct designated place when activated on the profile page.
You have to take these two steps to configure this for your users:
  • Create fields.
  • Map it to the Profile page locations.
Setup BuddyPress Fields profile
  • Navigate to the Dashboard > Users > Profile Fields menu page to create the BuddyPress Profile fields.
  • Click on the button “Add New Field.”
  • Create the 8 fields above (only those you wish to use).
ximage12
Map Profile Fields
  • Proceed to Dashboard > Users > Map Profile Fields Admin Page.
  • Choose the fields that match the available options.
  • The profile page contains two “special” areas of qualification.
  • “Education” and “Achievements” are by default.
  • You can use the text input fields available for each of these areas to modify the label displayed on the profile page.
  • Also, by clicking on the “Change Image button”, you can change the icons shown in these fields.
  • Lastly, click the save button.

Now each user can configure his or her front-end profile. They only have to visit their profile page of BuddyPress and click Edit.

#6 Set up forums for group discussions with bbPress

Your LearnDash bbPress plugin is also another component to add to your corporate training site. The integration of LearnDash bbPress enables you to integrate bbPress forums into courses. Any student with access to this course can post in the forum if you connect a forum with such a course. With this setup, students can connect and offer help to other coursemates when they need help. In turn, this minimizes your workload to only critical issues that require your attention.
Installation
  • Option 1: Add-ons Menu (requires an active LearnDash license)
  1. In your WordPress admin area, navigate to LearnDash LMS > Add-Ons
  2. Locate the bbPress for LearnDash add-on
  3. Click Install Now
  4. Click the Activate Plugin button
s 2F173F441FD4639FE340AE1499A2F018F9FA232241C09A4C6CDBFB7F374B73AB 1631695203191 bbpress learndash integration plugin card
  • How it Works
  • Before you can connect a forum with a course, you must first create a new forum in bbPress. If you’ve previously done this, you may skip this step.
  • We’re assuming you’ve previously created a LearnDash course. You will need at least one course for this integration.
  • Create a Forum
    1. Navigate to Forums > New Forum
    2. Give your forum a title
    3. (optional) Write an intro message & adjust the forum attributes (type, status, visibility, etc.)
  • Associate Forums with Courses
  • Now it’s time to link a forum to a course
    1. On the Edit Forum page, scroll down to the LearnDash bbPress Settings box
    2. Under Associated Course(s), click on a course to associate it with that forum
    3. NOTE: You may select one or more courses. Hold down the CTRL key (CMD on Mac) to select multiple courses.
    4. If you select multiple courses by mistake, you can use the “Clear All” button to start over.
Once a course (or courses) has been selected, ensure that your forum is published or updated. Now every user who has access to the course has access to the forum. When a user is not included in the course, such a user cannot view or post on the forum. This is all that is necessary for the integration to be set up, but let us look at a few further options.
  • Additional Choices (Post Limit Access)
  • This is only true if this forum has been connected with more than one course. You have two options for determining who gets access to the forum:
    • All (as is the case by default): Users must be able to access all specified courses in order to post to the forum.
    • Optional: Users just need access to one of the specified courses to publish on the forum.

 

  • Message Shown to Users with No Access

This is where the message given to users with no access to the forum can be customized. The notification states by default that: This forum is restricted to members of the associated course(s).You can adapt the message to include a link or any other message to purchase the course. Basic HTML is supported.

  • Forum View

For the non-enrolled users, If you want them to see the forum posts & topics but not to be able to post replies, click this option. If this option is used, the above notice will be ignored. Non-registered users will view the forum and all its discussions, but cannot post or answer.

#7 Set up your payment gateway integration plugin

s 2F173F441FD4639FE340AE1499A2F018F9FA232241C09A4C6CDBFB7F374B73AB 1631703380593 ecommerce 2607114 960 720
To make money from your corporate training and skill development website, you must include a payment mechanism. A payment gateway is a third-party financial service that accepts and processes consumer payments on behalf of a business. Students use this method to pay for the courses they sign up for on your website.
LearnDash includes built-in PayPal payment capabilities. There are no additional plugins or add-ons required; however, some settings are required before you may sell your courses via PayPal.
Before you can receive payments, you must first create a free PayPal account and confirm it (read about verified accounts).
Why should You Use PayPal?
  • PayPal is a good thing to consider if you want to start selling courses quickly and easily.
  • You provide one course with a simple pricing structure or simply a few courses.
PayPal Settings
s 2F173F441FD4639FE340AE1499A2F018F9FA232241C09A4C6CDBFB7F374B73AB 1631702822493 learndash paypal settings
Before you can start receiving payments, your PayPal settings must be filled and completed.
  1. In your WordPress admin dashboard, navigate to LearnDash LMS > Settings
  2. Click on the PayPal Settings tab
Now let’s go through each option:
PayPal Email
This refers to the email address that you used to register on PayPal.
IMPORTANT
Seller Email (which is entered in the PayPal settings for your PayPal account) and Receiver Email (the PayPal account’s primary email) must be the same.
PayPal Currency
This refers to a three-letter code that corresponds to the country in which you reside.
Popular currency codes include:
  • USD for United States Dollar
  • CAD for Canadian Dollar
  • AUD for Australian Dollar
PayPal Country
This refers to a two-letter code that associated with the country in which you reside.
Popular country codes include:
  • US for United States
  • CA for Canada
  • AU for Australia
PayPal Cancel URL
This is where a user gets routed if his payment is canceled or the payment fails.
You could construct a custom page or just redirect the user back to your site using your support or contact information. Enter the whole URL and start with https://.
PayPal Return
This refers to the location where a user will be redirected after a successful payment is made. We recommend developing a “thank you” or “next steps” page or sending them to a login or account page. Enter the full URL, starting with https://.
IMPORTANT
Please ensure that automatic redirects are activated on your PayPal account. If not activated, you will be obliged to click “Return to Merchant.”
PayPal Notify URL
This URL must not be altered and should be pre-populated for you. LearnDash needs it in order to connect with PayPal.
If this option is missing, please enter the following URL to substitute your real domain name for “yoursite.com.”
  • https://yoursite.com/sfwd-lms/paypal
Course Configuration
The last thing you need to do is establish a course to accept payment, after you’ve configured your Paypal settings.
  1. In the WordPress admin area, navigate to Learn Dash LMS > Course
  2. Click on the course you’d like to sell with PayPal
  3. Click on Settings at the top
  4. Scroll down to Course Access Settings
  5. Set the Access Mode” to one of two values:
  • Buy Now: Use “Buy Now” for one-time payments
  • Recurring: Use “Recurring” if you’d like to set up a recurring payment (aka: subscription)
And finally, fill in your price in the Course Price input field. Ex: 29.99
  • The currency symbol is added automatically for you.
  • You can skip decimal point & cents (ex: ’29’) if your price contains zero cents.
You need to provide the Billing Cycle for recurrent payments in days, weeks, months, or years.

The User Experience
You will notice a “Take this Course” button when you visit your course page (this language can be customized using custom labels). By clicking the button, a user is taken to PayPal.com to select their form of payment and to finish the transaction. The transaction is carried out on the website of PayPal.
Any of the following payment options may be used by users:
  • Credit Card
  • Debit Card
  • Linked Bank Account
  • PayPal Balance
Upon completion of payment, the customer will be sent to any URL that was provided in the PayPal Return option above. A new account is generated immediately and this user is registered for the course he has just paid.

#8 Set up any additional Plugins you might need

The objective here is to make your corporate training and skill development website as effective and lucrative as possible. To reach this aim, you must integrate all of the essential plugins, add-ons, and settings into your website. This, in turn, will provide the greatest experience for your students while also returning the highest profit on your investment. Let’s have a look at these plugins one by one.
Membership Plugin
For a membership plugin, I will recommend the paid membership pro. Here are some reasons why you should use Paid Memberships Pro along with LearnDash.
  • Create membership levels, and assign a course (or courses) to different levels.
  • Offer coupons or discount codes for your courses.
  • Sell courses in a bundle (i.e. one price provides access to multiple courses).
  • Sell access to courses as an ongoing subscription.

Create a Membership Level
Before you can assign a LearnDash course to membership in Paid Memberships Pro, you need to:
  • create a course
  • create a membership level
We’ll assume you have already created a LearnDash course.
To create a membership level in Paid Memberships Pro:
  • Navigate to Membership > Settings > Levels
  • Click the Create a Membership Level button

Before you complete this step, please read the next section on assigning a course to your membership level.
Assign a Course to a Membership Level
You’ll want to link your LearnDash course(s) with your new membership level before saving it. You are creating this on the same page.
This means that when a person buys (or just accesses) the membership level, he or she also automatically receives access to the course(s).
s 2F173F441FD4639FE340AE1499A2F018F9FA232241C09A4C6CDBFB7F374B73AB 1631779575101 learndash courses on pmp membership level

Alternative Method
It is most easy to assign a course to a membership level when you create your membership. However, access to the courses can also be controlled through the course page itself.
  • Navigate to LearnDash LMS > Course
  • Click on the course you’d like to assign to a membership level
  • In the sidebar, look for Require Membership
  • Check the box next to the membership level that this course should be assigned to

Now, when visiting your course page, the button “Take this Course” will lead them to the relevant Levels page, where the membership level can be added to their cart and the purchase process is completed.
Retroactive Member Access
If you have previously installed Paid Membership Pro with live membership levels and members, the retroactive access procedure for members is ready after activating the Paid Membership Pro for LearnDash.

If you are not ready for this process, you can dismiss the message. If you are willing to go through the retroactive process:
  • Go to Memberships > LearnDash and press the Run button.
Please wait for the procedure to finish before moving to the next page.
Quiz/assignment reporting plugin
The quiz/assignment reporting plugin is another add-on that will simplify the statistical experience for your corporate training website. With this plugin, you can export a spreadsheet file that can be further analyzed in your spreadsheet application. It can even be exported as a CSV file which can be used for data science and other statistical operation. You can also leverage the statistical reporting that this plugin comes with by default for visualizing and interpreting your quiz/assignment report data.

Email marketing integration plugin
Here’s why e-marketing is one of the most crucial addons for your corporate training and skill development website. The information collected from students when they sign up for your courses may be used to contact them through email or social media about any offers you have on your website. You can inform them about a new course that they must enroll in. You may also use this plugin to keep them up to date on their whereabouts and development.
For this tutorial, we’ll be using the LearnDash Notifications add-on, which allows you to send emails to your students when specific events occur on your site, such as finishing a course, finishing a lesson, passing/failing an exam, and so on. You have the ability to specify when these alerts are delivered, who receives them, and the whole email message itself. For each user, you can even enter dynamic content and insert various information according to the particular actions that took place.
