LearnDash Course Creation made easy

If you are a LearnDash LMS admin, one of your primary tasks is to ensure courses are created and managed efficiently. You can assign Course Authors who can do this task. But if you let them have their way, you might lose control of your LMS

The quality might slip. Even the security would be jeopardized. With Wisdm Frontend Course Creation for LearnDash, you have control. You also shield course authors from back end complexity, which means they do not have to worry about back end jargon. 

Thus, educators who are new to WordPress and LearnDash can also create and manage courses with ease.

With Wisdm Frontend Course Creation, you can

Allow Course Authors to Create Courses from the Frontend

Using the inbuilt course builder interface, authors can create content for courses, quizzes, lessons and topics without logging into the backend panel of your LMS.

Frequently Asked Questions

We thought you might have a few!

Yes, you would need the BuddyPress plugin to use the Front-end Course Creation plugin.

Yes. A Course Author can courses, lessons, topics and questions.

The primary difference is that Course Author does not have access to the back-end settings of your LMS, while the Instructor does. The Course Author can create courses, lessons, topics and quizzes right from options provided or his/her BuddyPress profile. The Instructor on the other hand, can create courses, lessons and topics from the LMS back-end, using LearnDash settings.

If your theme works well with BuddyPress, the plugin will work well with your theme. In case your facing any issues, be sure to get in touch with us. If there are small fixes, our support team should be able to handle them. But any development effort involved will incur additional charges.

The FCC plugin adds several pages using which Course Authors can add and manage course content. There is also a quick link right from the Course Authors BuddyPress profile page, using which course content can be added.

Wisdm Frontend Course Creation plugin supports transactions supported by LearnDash as well as WooCommerce directly i.e with LD Stripe or PayPal and your Debit or Credit cards too.

Good addition to LearnDash I agree that the customer support is good. But on the whole the plugin just brings WordPress LearnDash back-end course creation to front-end. There are no improvements and so far they are missing the templates. This is a major downside as course authors have to manually put each choice again with each question and quiz. I've reported it to Wisdmlabs and they said they would include it in later updates. Looking forward
