As our lives move increasingly online, virtual learning environments are more important than ever. The CM Video Lessons Manager for WordPress enables you to create a learning management system and easily track student progress.
When building an online learning management system (LMS) you need a tool that provides all the necessary features for success.
The CM Video Lessons Manager provides everything you need to successfully host and manage video lessons and full courses. It also provides you with a way to easily track student progress as they embark on their learning journey. This is one of the most important features of any video lessons manager plugin.
The Importance of Tracking Student Progress
When you run a learning management system, tracking student’s progress is advantageous for both teachers and students.
One of the biggest challenges for any teacher is keeping students active and engaged. By tracking student progress across classes and courses, you can easily see which students may need an extra helping hand or more time to complete work.
You can also provide your students with an engaging visual tool to see how far they’ve come. This can help to keep them engaged and motivated as they progress through the course.
The Tools You’ll Need to Track Student Progress in WordPress
To build a learning management system that allows you to easily track student progress, you only need two things:
- A WordPress website
- CM Video Lessons Manager
Installing the plugin should be straightforward, but if you need help you can check out the step-by-step plugin installation guide.
Once installed, you can start building your learning management system.
How to Track Student Progress in WordPress
The CM Video Lessons Manager plugin provides admin with a handy, straight-forward interface. Here you can easily track how far students are progressing through each video lesson and overall course.
To view, simply navigate to CM Video Lesson Manager Pro > Progress Report.
The progress reports can be filtered in any way you need. View progress reports for users, videos, lessons, or entire courses.
The Progress Report gives you several pieces of key info. First, it tells you the total duration of the video or course. You can then compare this to total time that each user has spent watching. Alongside total time spent watching, you’ll also see each student’s progress as a percentage. This is just another handy way of understanding how far a student has to go.
The screenshot below shows how the Progress Report will look to admin in the back-end:
As well as viewing Progress Reports on the back-end, you can also choose to display them on the front-end using a handy shortcode.
In addition, the Video Lessons Manager plugin provides users with a student dashboard. Here students can see important stats and track their own progress.
Logged-in users can view all statistics related to the videos they’ve watched so far. Lessons will only appear after the user has begun watching them. From here, they can also resume watching videos they haven’t yet finished.
The screenshots below show how the Video Statistics page will look for users. Users can switch between tabs in the dashboard with the ability to view their training progress, stats, or bookmarks. You can, of course, customize the page’s aesthetics to fit the look and feel of your website.
Admin have complete control over what students can see in their dashboard. In the back-end, admin can choose whether registered users are automatically directed to the dashboard after log-in and customize the tabs that appear in the front-end, as seen below:
