Introducing Notes for WP Courseware!

Notes for WP Courseware WordPress LMS Plugin - Blog Header

Today we’re thrilled to announce the first iteration of a new in-lesson, comprehensive Resource Module for your WP Courseware students…

WP Courseware Notes!

The WP Courseware Resource Module will be an in-lesson, slide-up menu for your students to access resources to enhance their learning experience. 

While Notes is the first iteration of the Resource Menu, it will soon include in-lesson options to add an ongoing Q&A thread and a resources listing for any supplemental materials you provide to your students.

With the WP Courseware Notes functionality, your students will now be able to…

  • Take notes from directly within a course lesson
  • Create or edit notes while also watching video with a slide-up style menu
  • Use 13 rich formatting options within their notes for things like links, images, code, bulleted or number lists, and more
  • Focus their view of the notes to the current lesson or the entire course
  • Sort and filter notes by date

    I’m really glad that you are still developing the plugin. I own both Wp Courseware and Tutor LMS. I prefer your plugin because I can rely on it (Tutor has a lot of bugs) and it has a Gutenberg support. I think you need a dedicated website just for Wp Courseware, new YouTube tutorials and Facebook community. Many people think your plugin is outdated and is not developed anymore. Wish you all the best!

      Hi Janek,
      Thank you for your encouraging words. WP Courseware is alive and well. We still have great plans for it.

    Great news! I love it.

    We would like to translate the texts associated with the notes, but unfortunately we were not successful.
    We use the Loco translate plugin, but the texts are not found there.

      Hi Varga,
      I’m assuming you are trying to translate the label “Units” which is a dynamic string and can be set in WP Courseware–>Settings–>Units. You will notice that you can use the unit label, or you can click the drop down and select a different option. If you select, ‘custom’ then you can specify the singular and plural versions of the new label. That said, when you translate the word ‘Units’ using a local PO/MO file (or plugin like Loco Translate), the change only takes effect for when you create a new course. For courses that were created prior to the new notes release, I would recommend using the custom label, or you can modify the DB directly which is not really recommended.

      If there are other strings that you can’t find, please login to the Member Portal and submit a support request so that we can properly address the string issues.
