    It is my first time to use this. But after installing it I couldn't find the courseware dashboard. I can only assign teachers and students. But the courses and other stuff is missing. I don't know where to find them. Or am I missing something?I really don't know what caused this. Tried looking online for the same problem but no solutions found only conversations in the forums which didn't give any solutions at all.

    Hi there

    This is a common error on a multisite install.

    You can find the dashboard at http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/network/admin.php?page=bp-courseware

    In a standard install the setting might be on the plugins page. Or try wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-courseware

    It's not the settings page I am talking about @1two3... It's the dashboard for BP Courseware. Where I can add courses and other stuff like assignments.

    I tried to follow all those steps.. From installing BP to BP template pack and to BP Courseware. I was able to successfully configure BP installation and it worked. But after I installed Courseware I thought it was okay. I tried adding some users..and approved teachers. but the others functionalities I couldn't find. And I don't know where to find the error. Where could I have skip a step. I tried also testing it with a fresh WP install. No other plugins and default theme used. But still the same thing.

    Yes, with recent BP and WP upgrades the plugin is not running 100%.
    Do you have a link? Try setting things up with the default theme bundled with BP. I'm using courseware with http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/commons-in-a-box/ and there are design and functionality issues with courseware.

    I wasn't sure whether you managed to add teacher roles, but the following may help you (or others).

    To add users as teachers I installed http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-switching/

    I then switched to that user, applied to be a teacher under that person's login, switched back to admin, and responded to the request (they are sent to your inbox in your profile).

    A shortcut may be to add /profile/edit/group/2/ to the end of each teacher's profile page. I'm not sure if that works for everyone.

    Thanks @1two3
    I will try this one.
    I'll let you know after if this works or not.

    Do you have any suggestions regarding this situation.

    I have a restaurant site and I wanted the site to have functionalities where I could add the restaurant staffs after I could add them, they would be able to login from a page[staff-login page is what i have in mind]. And after successfully logged in, they would be redirected to a page where they could view some tutorials or documents; takes exams; and fill up some forms[where i could customize myself].

    results of the test would be submitted to my email accounts and the filled up forms to my email and saved in the database.

    Hi zuhpiter

    Courseware and Commons in a Box (http://commonsinabox.org/ - I suggest you join their community) allow for some useful learning tools. It also comes with an awesome theme.

    You can run the courses in Groups using courseware.
    Courseware will allow you to set up quizzes, the results of which are mailed to you. The staff taking the courses are shown how far down the road of completing the course they are.

    Could you also ask that question on http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=4491579&trk=anet_ug_hm It's a very active group on linkedin.

    I tried to get to my dashboard as suggested above by @1two3
    I keep getting message that I don't have permissions.

    I am at least seeing stuff inside groups where I can create a class however adding assignments is giving me grief so figured I'd try looking for the dashboard again.

    Hi CoachChuck.

    I uninstalled courseware because it was not being updated and I was not getting any support. The developer is busy building a stand-alone learning environment so I don't think he has time for updates and support. Pity, this had potential to be a great product.

    Have a look at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-teacher/. It is not group based, but in conjunction with the plugins supplied by http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/commons-in-a-box/, it may be the solution you are looking for.

    Commons-in-a-box is actively supported at http://commonsinabox.org/
