LearnDash Development & Customisations

Our team of LearnDash developers work with training providers and in-house training teams, building LearnDash customisations to provide bespoke functionality and integrate with external systems.

From building new LearnDash powered Learning Management Systems from scratch, through to maintaining and enhancing existing ones – we can take care of the technical implementation and let you focus on delivering engaging courses and training.

Below are some examples of custom LearnDash development work we have undertaken for clients:

  • Custom dashboards & roles – We have extended the LearnDash roles to create additional profiles for line managers, compliance profiles and others. Each user sees a customised dashboard based on their role, and what permissions they have.
  • Bespoke enrolment requirements We have developed multiple enrolment processes to sign up learners to LearnDash courses. We’ve had learners enrolled via bespoke registration forms customise the course requirements based on supplied information.
  • Complex surveys & quizzes – To accompany e-learning material, we have created interactive quizzes for learner styles and skills scans, with immediate results and graphs available to learners. We’ve also created a tool to gather 360 feedback with minimal effort.
  • Events Management – We created an events management system which sits within the user dashboards. Learners can arrange meetings with teachers, and vice versa. Attendance registers can be completed, and reports created based on attendance records.
  • Custom tracking & reporting – We have created advanced reports such as End Point Assessment reports which show an accurate representation of learner progress based on both e-learning delivered via LearnDash and in person attendance. All reports are searchable and filterable and can be exported as PDFs or CSVs.
  • Zoom API Integration – With client requirements to run a number of webinars, we created an integration with the Zoom API. Meetings are created while logged into the LMS, and sent to Zoom. Enrolments and cancellations are also managed without leaving the LMS dashboard.
  • LearnDash & WordPress Multisite – We have created multiple LMS’s in a single WordPress install using WordPress Multisite. This allows some common functionality across all systems, but different branding, courses and reporting on a per system basis.

If you have an idea for your LMS, our team of LearnDash developers can help you achieve it.

Questions our LearnDash developers are often asked.

Does LearnDash support SCORM?

Yes, content that is created in third party software such as Adobe Captivate and Articulate can be added using a third party extension such as Tin Canny or GrassBlade. But the content created within LearnDash is not SCORM compliant.

How can you sell courses with LearnDash?

There are several approaches to selling LearnDash courses. Out of the box, you can sell courses individually or on a subscription basis. For training providers, we’ve also developed a flexible system to sell courses to clients based on a variety of models including credits based and number of seats.

How much does LearnDash cost?

LearnDash is licensed annually per-installation. There’s a single site license, or bulk buy options. This means there is no per-seat cost for each learner. So after your initial development investment, it can happily run steadily for years just applying the updates as and when they are released.

Why should I choose LearnDash over a SAAS solution?

This will come down to personal preference, but for a lot, the ownership is key. By using a self hosted LearnDash install, you own all the content and data stored within your LMS. It’s flexible and can be customised to meet your requirements – both for course delivery, and reporting.

Also, it is a fixed cost with the lack of per-seat licensing (see “How much does LearnDash Cost”).

Does LearnDash have an app?

There isn’t an official mobile app for LearnDash, but there are several great ways to deliver courses on mobiles/tablets – either using native apps, progressive web apps or just by having a great mobile experience.

Does LearnDash need WooCommerce to sell courses?

No. You can sell LearnDash courses without needing WooCommerce installed. If you are selling LearnDash alongside other products or services it is usually better to sell the courses via WooCommerce so you can give your visitors a single basket/checkout.

Can I add LearnDash to my existing website?

Yes, if your website is built on WordPress you can add LearnDash to it. Sometimes there are good reasons not to – we’re happy to advise on this.

Does LearnDash need WordPress?

Yes, you need WordPress to run LearnDash.

What is LearnDash Hub?

LearnDash Hub is a separate plugin which is automatically installed and activated when users upgrade LearnDash to version 4.3.0.2 (which was released on 4th August 2022). LearnDash Hub manages your licence for LearnDash and provides an easy way to install and update add-ons which are included with your license, along with LearnDash itself.

How well does LearnDash scale?

LearnDash scales very well – there is no effective limit as to how many courses or learners you can have as long as it is setup carefully and on suitable hosting.

Does LearnDash support H5P content?

It does! You can add engaging, interactive content to your LearnDash courses by embedding H5P content within your lessons. If you want to track progress through your H5P modules, you’ll also need a learning record store – we recommend GrassBlade LRS or Tin Canny which both integrate with LearnDash.

We had a few issues with our website, Delicous Media were able to very quickly able to work out and fix the multiple issues we had. Absolutly no complaints.
