Ik really liked it. And we were able to convert our wpcourseware lessons to Sensei, how wonderfull. We nearly bought it for 3 sites. There are a few buts: - Lay-out not really attractive and not much possibilities to adjust. - Lay-out of course catalogue is really hideous. - Some translations are so bad, that we are afraid to send the messages to our student (Dutch language). Of-course we can hire a developer to change it all, but after years of experience with other plugins we know everything can be solved, bit it takes a lot of time and energy and every year or so the same issues pop-up. So, no Sensei. Pity. I liked it, its simple and the prices are good. But to many buts.

The LMS actually works well, but the updates are just crap. For example, the latest update simply overwrites all button styles in our website with !important styles. Doubt that there are competent minds at work here and am frustrated by the poor work!

When I thought about offering online courses, I had a lot of choices. One thing I knew: I wanted to integrate it into my website and not use an external platform. At that point we already used WordPress, WooCommerce, as well as Woo Memberships and Woo Subscriptions. I looked at Sensei, because it seemed like a good idea to go with another Automattic product – the same people behind WordPress and WooCommerce. I'm glad we did, even if it didn't seem to be a big priority for Automattic at that point. It was back in early 2017. Lately the team behind Sensei LMS has been on fire – in a good way of course. They have implemented a lot of new useful features like interactive quizzes and learning mode. The transition to the block editor has been great and made several things easier to use. And they are working on more new features and improvements. We use Sensei plus what is now called Sensei Pro. As far as I can see the free version already has a lot to offer. I personally can only recommend to give it a try. And if you encounter a problem, let the Sensei people know. They have been super nice and responsive in my experience.

I have to give this one a 2. There are some great things about the plugin, otherwise it would have been a 0, but there are some terrible ones. No support for the "free" version even though I had to pay for WooCommerce paid courses. I have had to alter the code in the lessons module as I kept getting an array error for the quiz questions. Fortunately, I am a developer, so able to so that. Quiz settings don't save correctly to the database, sometimes takes multiple attempts to have settings save correctly. Lastly, and worst of all is the use of the Gutenberg blocks.

This plug-in needs work. The teacher cannot communicate with learners and the learners can't communicate with each other. The grading feature doesn't work properly (says I need to grade quizzes I've already graded) and frankly there needs to be an option to not grade quizzes. I have post-graduate learners for whom there's no correct answer to the gap fill questions I ask. The LMS doesn't allow me to not provide an answer to questions. Also, lesson course media and featured images don't display. I'd also like to be able to post announcements to the dashboard for things like live guest lectures and events or benefits they've earned based upon their participation or achievement levels. Because the plugin does none of this, I'll have to find a developer to customize it or create a program from scratch that does what I want it to do. The good parts are the easy connection with woocommerce, the content drip feature, and the clean learning mode screen. That's why the plugin earned 3 stars.
