Learning management system for WordPress. Support unlimited number of courses, lessons, assignments, students etc.
I am working on a LMS as a proof of concept and I find that this plugin does wonders. But, there is always a but, the documentation is, to use an euphemism, very spartan. Before going PRO I would like some more documentation. On the site there isn't even a decent products comparison table.
Anyway, for a free plugin the 5 stars are well deserved.
Having been informed of the current vogue of “eLearning” and the huge sums of money involved in programming bespoke packages, I was merely curious as to whether I could fulfill the following criteria using only open-source software, freely available...
1. Student had to register
2. A section must be completed satisfactorily before progression to further sections
3. A PDF “Certificate of Completion” must be available upon passing.
I am happy to say that with a little time and effort, the “Namaste! LMS” plugin (combined with 3 others) successfully achieved the objectives, and I’m happy to rate it five stars!
Having created a “proof of concept” site, I sincerely hope the charity I put this together for move forward in the “open source” direction, and purchase the “pro” version of this and the other plugins I’ve used (as the community needs support from those who are able to afford it).
I am totally impressed with Namaste! LMS. I was looking for a replacement for Moodle, because we already have a WP site and we wanted our users to have a single sign-on experience. There were some advanced features we had to have, such as conditional release (must complete X before you get to see Y), that are not available in other LMS plugins for WP. Documentation is light, but the I am very happy with the support. The developers are very responsive. This is only going to get better and better. Recommendation: Go PRO! Get Addons!! It's totally worth the money for this great plugin, and it will help it continue to grow.
Once courses and lessons (as well of categories) are correctly organised, the results are just ... perfect !
Congratulation for the work done, and thanks !
The best WP LMS.
Using Namaste now for the last 6 months. Although it is work in progress it is already very good as it is and the new features that are coming with every new release are only making it better.
I have highly customized the Namaste plugin and it is extremely easy to follow.
The file names and comments provided in the php files make it easy to customize the plugin to fit my needs.
The admin is also highly active on the forums which I have found doesn't always happen :)
I would recommend this plugin to anyone!
After trying many dedicated LMS softwares, finally I use this fantastic plugin for wordpress. It is stable, clean and uncluttered in looks and always improving.
Namaste was a good find for us - it's just right for our course presentation needs.
clear to implement and simple for users -
Great that it's actively supported and improvements made as we go along - I look forward to the progress of this excellent lms
What a powerful plugin that is constantly being improved.
Does it do everything that an enterprise ($$$$( does? Not yet.
But with the steady stream of improvements being made; I am sure it won't be long before it does.
BTW - Can't recommend strongly enough that you get the add-on modules.
Not only do they add tremendous functionality to the LMS system; they are also they only way the development teams makes any money for all their hard work on this tool.
