Today we’re thrilled to announce another great addition to our library of WP Courseware integrations…
Introducing BuddyPress for WP Courseware
Let’s face it, learning retention is enhanced by social interaction. And when your learning environment is virtual, it can be difficult to provide the interactions which a student might benefit from in an offline setting.
This is why we recently chose to work with one of the leading WordPress LMS implementation and consulting firms around to develop an integration between WP Courseware and the most feature-rich social networking WordPress plugin out there, BuddyPress.
BuddyPress has an incredible feature lineup with many options to benefit moderators of an online course and best of all, it’s free.
While this integration add-on between WP Courseware and BuddyPress will be our first foray into premium extensions, we truly feel that any WP Courseware user will quickly see the value it provides.
How Can the WP Courseware + BuddyPress Integration Enhance Your Course?
The WP Courseware + BuddyPress integration all starts with Groups. This add-on connects WP Courseware courses to the Users Groups built into BuddyPress. When a student is enrolled within a course, they automatically become part of the associated group to begin sharing and communicating with other students!
Once your students are associated with their course group, it’s time to start having some fun! You can begin building a motivating community learning environment by publishing various student accomplishments publicly within the group. It’s simple to select which accomplishments you want to publicly display, including:
- Course completion
- Module completion
- Unit completion
- Quiz completion
- Perfect quiz scores
- Certificates awarded
When social connections are made, your students will be able to filter their member list to find other members of their courses to easily communicate with them when they have questions! This is also a great way for them to be able to directly communicate with a course instructor.
With the WP Courseware + BuddyPress integration, user profiles are greatly enhanced with features like course-related notifications, course-related messages, and even a WP Courseware course outline right within the user’s profile dashboard!
Your students can also publish their course achievements to Facebook and Twitter at the click of a button to share their learning journey and success with others. Just think how proud mom and dad will be!
And many other features!
So How Do I Get Started?!
You’ll need three separate plugins to take full advantage of the power this integration has to offer:
As we mentioned before, this premium integration was developed by our friends at WisdmLabs and this joint project has taken months to put together to ensure that we were able to offer an incredibly useful, feature-rich product.
WisdmLabs will be handling the delivery and support of this integration. However, we were able to negotiate a special limited-time price for this powerful integration, so if you’re serious about enhancing the learning experience for your online students please don’t wait to take advantage of this amazing add-on.
Ready to make your course fun and engaging?
