Online Course / Learning Management System Plugin for WordPress

SenseiSensei is a simple and flexible learning management WordPress plugin that helps you create online courses within a WordPress website. The premium plugin from WooThemes makes it easy to teach and sell courses with a WordPress website. With the Sensei plugin you can create courses, write lessons, add quizzes, set lesson and course perquisites, allow user registrations and also charge for your course thanks to WooCommerce ecommerce integration.

Sensei works out of the box with your existing WordPress theme or other quality WordPress themes and doesn’t require any modifications to your theme files. All the default styling is provided in the plugin. However the WooThemes Definition theme has been custom designed around this plugin with slick styling if you need. WooThemes also plan on including custom styling for this plugin in other future Woo theme releases.

Using Sensei is as easy as creating a post or page in WordPress, as it’s powered by its own ‘Lessons’ custom post type. You can create courses for any topic you can imagine and then easily add individual lesson to the course all using the standard WordPress editing tools. You can also easily include videos if you wish. Quizzes can be added at the end of each lesson and you can set a required percentage to pass. Sensei allows you to set course and lesson prerequisites. Students have their own personalized course dashboard that displays their progress, lessons completed, resume quizzes and other information. Sensei also provides analytic and reporting facilities for the admin / teacher with an overview of your content, grades, as well as the students who are registered with the site.

Sensei provides user registration options and you can also charge for your courses if you wish. It integrates seamlessly with WooCommerce so you can charge people to join your courses.

  1. HEY — Sorry, but the word “LEARNING” is mispelled in this post’s title about Sensei. It says ‘Online Course / Leaning Management System Plugin for WordPress’

  2. Thanks Todd. I might need to learn how to spell properly, or at least proof read the posts better before publishing.

  3. What’s “lesions” ???

  4. @ John – “lesions” are any abnormality in the tissue of an organism (in layman’s terms, “damage”), usually caused by disease or trauma.

    No idea why you asked that here 😉

  5. Demo does not seem to work for me. I go to take a course, and it hangs.

  6. I have been having a very hard time getting this plug in to work. I have a Genesis Framework site running Woocommerce, and this Sensei just plain doesn’t work. If anyone who knows how to fix this plugin is interested in helping I am looking for you join the team to trouble shoot. contact through

  7. Sensei link at the top doesn’t seem to work. Has an odd “blocked” message.
