WordPress Course Manager – a WordPress Plugin to handle courses, lecturers and a schedule of dates when courses are held with one or more lecturer(s).
The plugin lets you manage:
- Lecturers – Name, biography, picture and homepage url.
- Courses – Name, description, lecturers
- Schedule – Course, date, place, url to page/file with more information.
The plugin has very basic styling with css, relying mostly on the current theme to style things like typography, margins, paddings and so on. The plugin style is made to be responsive (works well on both small and big screens) and tested with the default 2013 theme.
This plugin was developed since I couldn’t find any other plugin that provided this functionality, and I needed it for the home page of the Swedish educational company Utbildningsglädje (http://www.utbildningsgladje.nu).
What I needed was to manage lecturers that can hold different courses and create a schedule with courses to be held at different locations.

- Why is the FAQ almost empty?
