I have been using this system for a while now. For our course material, we were using an embedded Google Presentation. We have since decided to migrate the slides into individual units to take advantage of things like the progress tracker.
However, this is brought up an issue with the amount of time it takes to navigate to the next unit. It generally takes upwards of 10 seconds to progress to the next unit. This is going to create a very negative user experience.
I have created this video to demonstrate this: https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cYVenDvTls
There is no excessive load on the server: https://i.imgur.com/CQv8hwf.png
The server is an AWS Lightsail account with the following stats: 32 GB RAM, 8 vCPUs, 640 GB SSD. Should be more than enough power.
What can we do to speed this up?

It seems your single course consists of a large number of units as well as quizzes. That’s why ajax call which is executing to load the content takes time.
Yes, you can say this will mark a negative user experience. That’s why we are working on wplms 4.0 which will resolve these kinds of issues. I can only say you have to keep your patience until then.
Thank you very much..!!
Thanks Diana… is there a timeline for v4.0? We need to launch soon, so I assume this is not right around the corner.
Would you be able to possibly point us in the right direction and give some hints on how we can try and resolve this ourselves in the meantime?

It will actually take some time as its not easy to change the technology of such a feature rich system.
Might be able to migrate it upto March mid.(not promising the timeline, it maybe delayed).
