Ever wonder why some schools or universities are ahead or the regular ones? It’s because they choose to stay updated with the technologies that become available. Today, online course management and course creation has never been easier to manage with the current tools.

Today we are going to take a look at WPLMS (WordPress Leaning Management System) and see if we can help you take your class and course management system to another level.

Who made it

I always like to start with a short presentation of the team (or individual) who made this awesome piece of software available. So WPLMS was created by Vibethemes, a wordpress company currently based in New Delhi with an outstanding contribution to the themeforest market place with over 2000 sales on over 7 items.

How can my students benefit

Good question. WPLMS is a full grown better learining management system ready made for small classes and courses. Your teachers can create custom made courses right on the frontend view, put them up for sale and students can come, buy the course and complete it.

Course creation

The course creation can be done directly from the Frontend view of the site, so no backend hassle. It features a nice step by step tutorial on how to create your awesome course.

Things that can be improved

We love every aspect of WPLMS but as any software, things can be improved and one of the things I would like to see is the social aspect of the learning system that codeschool or treehouse implements.

The ability to share your progress or badges across your favorite social media platform so others can compete/join in learning something new.
