What prompted the shift : 

WPLMS is still the most advanced theme and education platform on WordPress. But an aspect of technology is that it is ever evolving it is time for WPLMS for a change. Back when we released WPLMS it was using the stable technologies available at that time. Progressive enhancements in any software can only take you so far but a time comes when there is a need for a paradigm shift.

The WordPress 5.0 released in 6th December 2018, BuddyPress 5.0, September 30, 2019. Both of these changes focus on WordPress as a HeadLess CMS which meant everything in WordPress is possible via API’s and ReactJS became core part of WordPress. These were favourable conditions for WPLMS revival.

During the times of COVID19 , there is no denying that online education has gained more importance than ever.  However, there is a  dearth affordable LMS solutions in the education industry. Almost all of WordPress based LMS solutions are an anomaly in the online Education sphere. As leading LMS in WordPress we have to compete with LMS systems outside of WordPress as well.

Over the past years, we’ve gained a lot of knowledge, seen thousands of use cases, studied our competition, assessed the requirements of users and know the limitations of technologies. Thus the 4.0 version will bring about a platform on which we can develop further. Our Roadmap would easily explain what all is possible in the new WPLMS.

 

Vision : 

An affordable LMS solution which meets the technology standards of the time !

    Great news. You are deploying the technology ground I needed to implement such educational platform.

  7. Kanay

    This sounds amazing! Would love to see something leverage cognitive psychology backed learning approaches, such as the incorporation of a question bank that can show questions through a spaced repetition algorithm.

    I hope the video conference can support google hangout/meet

    1. Better, it is so easier to implement Video conferencing, so we’re going to add it in WPLMS.

  9. Sir I have purchased 3 licences of wplms and I have only two week support remain and I am not from it background. I doing everything learning from form comments. So if possible please release it before my support period end.

    the chat in v4, it will be the current wplms chat or we need to have another plugin

      1. JFOC

        Great. So we can use all current plugins addon in the new v4

  11. Hi friends! I need some help regarding the new update. I have read somewhere in this forum, that WPLMS is not gonna be a theme anymore but instead will be a plugin that integrates all the current functionalities.
    How this will affect the site arquitecture? I asked a design company to design a website for me and a dashboard, and they want to know how the plugin is going to work from version 4.0 on.

    Thanks for your time and work.

      1. That’s excellent news. I think a plugin version would be extremely useful. Would the plugin version be a separate purchase than the theme? Also, if we have the WPLMS plugin would we be able to design our own course pages and unit pages and landing pages for each course?
