Sell Online Courses Any Way You Choose

We’ve just released new versions of Sensei LMS and Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses.

(As a reminder, Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses is a bundle of Sensei LMS and WooCommerce Paid Courses.)

Sensei with WooCommerce Paid Courses

We heard from the community that being able to attach only a single WooCommerce product to a course limits the ways in which you are able to sell your courses.

That’s why we’ve added the ability to attach multiple WooCommerce products to a course.

Here’s how it works.

Sensei LMS Sidebar

For sites running WordPress 5.0+ and WooCommerce 3.6+, a Sensei LMS icon appears in the top right of the screen when adding or editing a course. Clicking the icon opens the sidebar. From here, you can select one or more products to attach to the course:

Products Metabox

Sites running older versions of WordPress or WooCommerce, or that have the Classic Editor plugin activated, will be able to select multiple products from the Products metabox:

Course Archive

On the course archive page, the products and their pricing details are displayed:

Single Course

On the single course page, product cards are displayed to highlight the available purchase options:

If a course is only attached to one product, then a single purchase button is displayed.

You can find out more about this release by reading the beta release post or by visiting the change log.

Please note: While we have thoroughly tested this release, it’s always possible that we’ve missed something. We recommend that you test the update on a staging site before updating your live site.

  1. Hey – the Sensei LMS icon is not showing for me. I’ve got the lastest WordPress, Sensei LMS and WooCommerce. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Hi Drew,

      The Sensei LMS icon will only show if you are using the WooCommerce Paid Courses extension – https://woocommerce.com/products/woocommerce-paid-courses/
