Do you run an Online Course WordPress site using WooThemes Sensei (the ultimate Learning Management System for WordPress)? But it lacks a crucial feature of most online course websites – Credits & points. What if we told you that you can add a points award system for your learners by integrating your WooThemes Sensei powered WordPress site with the myCRED plugin. But they usually don’t work together you say. Well, not until now. OpenTute+ brings you a compact add-on – myCRED Sensei Add-On that lets you integrate WooThemes Sensei & myCRED.
What exactly is the myCRED Sensei Add-On ?
myCRED Sensei Add-On is a lightweight & compact WordPress plugin to integrate WooThemes Sensei & myCRED. The add-on will allow you to define rules for awarding myCRED points to learners for various Sensei activities thus turning your simple Course website into a full-fledged credit based Online Course WordPress website.
- Add multiple rules for myCRED award points to be awarded for various Sensei activities
- Choose from all your Sensei quizzes that are automatically loaded into the Add Rule interface – No need to browse through quizzes in a different window
