LucidLMS

Description

If you are looking for a intuitive and powerful WordPress LMS with no learning curve, you’ve come to the right place!

  • Perfectly integrates into your WordPress installation
  • Create media-rich courses in minutes
  • Focus on content, not setup!

What is it exactly?

Lucid LMS is a WordPress plugin that creates online learning experiences. It’s great for companies who use learning for their staff or schools.

How is Lucid different from other LMS plugins?

When creating the software, we first of all thought of teachers, instructors and… developers!
Teachers, because they need a system to install with one click and start working on content instead of configuration.
Developers, because they deserve a nicely written, documented, extandable plugin they know how to customize.

How is Lucid’s workflow better than others?

One of the features we take pride in is the course workflow. Most of other LMSs have you create a course
and have to populate all the information for it before you create lessons and quizzes.
But that’s not how you think through the course, do you? Our workflow allows you to create an outline
of your courses before you work on the content. That lets you to plan
for your learning experience iteratively, just like in real life!

Want to sell course?

No problem. We integrate with WooCommerce, just install both plugins and enable WooCommerce support in settings.

Reviews

Very nice but

You really need to get the bundle they have available on their website to better understand how everything works.

The bundle includes a custom theme that’s all set up for LucidLMS and it makes a big difference. There’s also demo content available. Between the theme and demo content, you can really get a grasp on how it all works. Big time saver. After using their theme and the demo content, you should be able to just use the LMS with your own theme and you’ll know what needs to be done for everything to display correctly.

Both the LucidLMS plugin downloaded from here and the one downloaded from their site have 365 files and they both unzip to 3.1mb so I assume they’re identical. (I’m always leery of installing plugins and themes from outside of wordpress.org)

I recommend installing the theme first and then during a setup wizard you’ll be prompted to install some plugins including LucidLMS(the only required plugin). I tried installing the theme with the plugin already installed and it didn’t work. Setup didn’t recognize that the plugin was already installed.

Create, sell, coupon, Amazon Pay

This plugin gets the job done, beautifully.
– Creates courses
– Sells courses
– Protects course content
– Integrates with Woocommerce
– Uses coupons
– Accepts all forms of payment, includes Paypal & Amazon Pay.
– All of the above for free.

I’ve tried all big LMS plugins and this one is the one that does all of the above for free.

I found this plugin by accident but it turned out to be the one I’d been looking forever. This plugin has the potential to become the biggest LMS plugin on WordPress.

Easy & WORKS!

YES! Works great, easy to install and easy to use. I do think there are some features that can be added but as is it works for a lms and looks great as well as easy to use and figure out. Thanks for this plugin!
