I think I tried all free LMS plugins, and this was by far the best one. It's not perfect (I would like to be able to customize more) but it has all the essantials and then some.
I love this plugin, because you can create lessons like posts, adding what you want, without using any external LMS! It truly has everything you need to create a perfect course for your students.
Thank you so much for it!
P.S. The only feature, that I wish it had, is integration with WP-Pro-Quiz, so one could add those quizzes as a requirement to finish a lesson, or to use it directly in the assignments (now you can add those quizzes in a lesson anyway, but without any direct connection to the grading system). Thank you again for your work :)
This was easy to setup and I like the 'assignments' feature as well as the pdf certificates. I'm creating a free training program and this worked out well.
I've had a few issues of my own making when configuring a new web site and the developer has always responded quickly and effectively to my requests for support.
I'm using the pro version of Watu and Namaste and together they form an excellent system. Less intensively marketed than the competitors - but with more functionality where it matters.
I think I have tried all LMS plugins and extensions available and must admit that Namaste fully suits my needs. If you need something flexible, simple to implement, working without the necessity to install a dozen of extra themes and plugins then Namaste is the right choice for you. I especially enjoy the speed and the engagement of the author.
I have just installed it and already I feel it will be a good match for our needs.
Thank you very much for this nice plugin. I didn't know that even a LMS could nowadays be installed and managed by people like me (teacher) via WordPress.
I was very excited after the installation process. After experimenting with the funtionality for a few days, I was convinced and bought the PRO-version.
Especially in combination with Watu one gets a very powerful tool with many valuable educational features. No question: 5 starts from me!
Moodle was too much for my shared hosting, but WordPress worked well, so Namaste! was a very helpful tool to make a simple LMS come together.
Now I can work on making courses with an interface simple enough to ask my mother to collaborate on as well as enough assurance that it will keep working for as long as I keep my webpage going.
The integration with Watu is fantastic and I look forward to growing my courses from this base.
I feel sorry for the people who had to abandon this plugin as they felt that the setup is too difficult.
I’m using this plugin with Watu (Quizes) and ProMembership (register my students) and it works like a $1,000+ system! The important thing is to understand the flow of data and sequence of events. With a fine tune here and there I have a system that does exactly what I want it to do.
Good job! I will upgrade to Pro soon.
