What are the Requirements for using Sensei LMS?
As of version 2.0, you will need:
- PHP 5.6+
- WordPress 4.1+
If you are already running Sensei 1.x on an existing site, you will not be able to upgrade to Sensei LMS 2.0 unless your site is running PHP 5.6 or higher. WordPress.org has more information on how to update your site’s version of PHP.
Sensei LMS itself does not control membership, but there are two ways we have tested for creating a membership setup:
- Using WooCommerce Memberships (for tiered membership)
- Using WooCommerce Subscriptions (for non-tiered membership)
- Create a Subscription Product
- Add Sensei LMS courses to the created product
- Allow users to subscribe to those courses
- WooCommerce Memberships and Subscriptions can also be combined for a tiered membership with recurring payments
A Sensei LMS user, Richard Stibbard, has also documented another method he has used for creating a membership learning site with Sensei LMS:
Sensei LMS doesn’t interact with Articulate Storyline in any way, but there are plugins available that let you embed Articulate content into any post or lesson. This allows you to use Articulate Storyline content as the content of your lesson, and still use Sensei LMS for quizzes, grading etc. if you wish.
