MooWoodle

Description

The MooWoodle plugin is an extention of WooCommerce that acts as a bridge between WordPress/Woocommerce and Moodle. It fetches all the courses from your Moodle instance and makes them available for sale, which may be bought by users through WooCommerce. It reduces your effort by synchronising your LMS site with your online store. And when someone purchases a course from the store he/she is automatically gets registered for the course in the LMS site. More over this plugin works with WooCommerce subscription plugin too.

Reviews

Returning Students now enrolled

I’m running: WP 4.7.3, WC 3.0.1, Moodle 3.2.1+
With MooWoodle ver 1.2.1 the plug-in now enrolls returning students! 🙂

Version 1.2.1 added a new function ( core_user_get_users ). You must add this new function at: Administration > Site Administration > Web services > External Services > Add Functions. Add the following function to your webservice: core_user_get_users

Once this is done MooWoodle will enroll returning students into their course in Moodle.

All works as it should now. 🙂 🙂

Great idea, poor execution

Plugin can’t be activated with recent versions of wordpress and WooCommerce. Support forum is deader than death itself and the makers don’t respond to emails submitted through their website.

A real shame. On paper, exactly what lots of people are looking for.

Excellent – Up and working in a couple of hours

WP 4.7, WooCommerce 2.6.11 and Moodle 3.2 Centos 7

This plugin works better than I hoped. Sending Love for the dev who asked for it 😉

It threw up a couple of gotchas but those were all in process and my lousy email reading skills. I am separately going to suggest instructions to the developers, but mainly the need to add instructions for your customer on the Woo order. I plan on also adding something similar to the product descriptions so that peeps know to look at their email.

I added the following to Products / (the product) / advanced . It will show on the order and the emailed order.

Thank you for your purchase. Here is your course link Click Here ….

**Your Password will be sent to your supplied email**

Follow the instructions to the letter but be aware that certain Moodle functions have been renamed.

Excellent Plugin

Love this plugin. It makes an account in Moodle from the checkout from woo commerce and sends you the user name and password. It works with the latest Moodle 3.1.
