WISDM Instructor Role
A brick-and-mortar school has different teachers/ instructors teaching subjects they have expertise in. With Instructor Role, you can replicate the same format virtually.
Seamlessly delegate the responsibilities of course creation and management to different instructors. This, foremost, empowers your teachers. It puts them in charge of setting up lessons and managing them in a manner that they deem fit. And It also significantly reduces your workload.
Each instructor gets a dedicated dashboard where they can view and edit their course setting, track student progress, and get reports. If instructors put up paid courses, they can also view their commissions here. And you, as an admin, have a complete overview of all courses and content on your site.
The instructor dashboard is limited to only their own course settings. It restricts access to other parts of your LMS or other instructors’ courses. The admin also holds the power to review all content and make any changes. Making sure that you’re covered on the security front.
WISDM Group Registration
It’s the group management tool of your dreams. This group registration plugin lets the “group leader” enroll students in bulk, creates a group automatically on enrollment, and you as the admin have to worry about nothing.
Let’s say Sarah teaches 5th grade. And she wants to enroll them in a ‘science for the 5th graders’ course. Now, she could collect everyone’s information, fill out details, and enroll each one individually and keep track of endless email addresses, invoices. Or Sarah can just use Group Registration to bulk enroll all the kids and save all the hassle. As a group leader, Sarah can add or remove learners. As well as track the progress of every kid easily right from the front-end.
WISDM Content Cloner
Anytime you wish to clone course content this is the perfect tool to do it. WISDM Content Cloner replicates the complete course hierarchy with course lessons, topics, quizzes. You can also bulk rename the titles of the cloned course content at once. Making for easy editing and accelerated creation of new courses. Course management responsibilities can be delegated to instructors. If you’re cloning content for say, translation, you can also assign two instructors to manage that same course. It’s a smarter way to quickly create LearnDash courses.
WISDM Quiz Reporting Extension
Quizzes are an age-old way to test your student’s knowledge and how clear their understanding of the lessons is. That doesn’t change when it comes to an e-learning environment. But with your students studying remotely, you have no way to monitor their learning process. So their quiz results become a huge indicator of their progress.
This quiz reporting plugin provides you with regular Quiz Reports so you can have a complete overview of how your students are doing on quizzes. This can help you get insights into how your lesson plans are working and if students are able to follow course material or topics that a majority of students are struggling with. And you can update lessons accordingly.
WISDM Ratings, Reviews, and Feedback
Boost the credibility of your LMS with this 3-in-1 plugin. Ratings, Reviews & Feedback are central to building trust. Learners can add ratings and reviews and give you useful feedback about your course. You have complete control over how ratings and reviews are displayed.
