  • Hello, My name is Joseph and I am a philosopher and consultant among other things.

    Short version:
    I am trying to figure out whats the best, easiest way to build a school based on a 1-10 model. The first 2 levels are free exposed, but each level after that would require people do quizzes to qualify themselves for more advanced subjects. I am not a coder, but I know there is an easy word press solution to integrate the quizzes and page access levels.

    What I have been trying, without success is the following plugins:
    Restrict User Access, (which I haven’t made value of)
    Pods – Custom Content Types and Fields ( which I haven’t figured out) and
    Quiz Make (which has been easy, but I am unsure if it will integrate quiz results into a system to qualify people based on points or multipal successful quizzes).

    One option I am considering is using, is just make a password for each level, and manually distribute them once a user has done the required quiz load. (I like the personal involvement, but if the site takes off this would be unrealistic)

    If I could figure out how to make pods give me categories on pages. I could restrict and enable access based on that.

    Anyway if anyone has any advice or has seen someone solve this opportunity before, I will send you endless love and blessing for any help.

    Thank you,

  • Is there any reason you’re not using an actual made-for-purpose LMS or E-LEARNING plugin with lessons all these features built-in and tightly integrated already, instead of trying to cobble these things together yourself?

    There are several of these LMS plugins out there, with a varying set of features (especially if you want to limit yourself to their free versions).

    I personally build clients’ online schools and course platforms with the LearnDash plugin, but there’s no free version of this.

    I am very thankful George, you are a gentlemen and a scholar, since the project is a non for profit it further allowed me to want to avoid utilising cost.

    However you gave me something to think about and I will certainly study the learn dash platform, see if it is my jam, or another may work.

    However honestly I won’t be surprised if I use the passwords for pages idea. I like the idea of the personal element of being with people as a facilitator for their learning.

    Much love
