Say hello to the brand new Sensei Pro plugin, which combines our existing paid extensions with two new highly requested features.
Everything you need to build and sell engaging online courses is now in one package. Let’s take a closer look at what this means for you.
What’s in Sensei Pro?
- WooCommerce Integration – Sensei Pro includes everything found in our most popular extension, WooCommerce Paid Courses, making it easy to sell Sensei courses on your site.
- Subscriptions Now Included – This update may save you $199 per year! Selling recurring subscriptions no longer requires the separate WooCommerce Subscriptions extension when you use WooCommerce Payments as your payment gateway. This currently works for those based in the USA and will be rolling out to other countries in the future.
- Content Drip – Sensei Pro also comes with all of our Content Drip extension features. Content Drip enables you to make lessons available to students based on a period of time after they begin a course or on specific dates.
- Set Course Expiration – Previously, this feature was only available to those selling courses with WooCommerce. Now, with Sensei Pro, setting a date that a course ends or closes is possible for everyone.
- A New Quiz Timer – Set a time limit for a quiz and show students a countdown when answering questions.
- A New Sorting Question Type – Add quiz questions that ask students to put answer choices in order. Completely drag-and-drop and touchscreen-friendly.
- Everything In Sensei LMS – Sensei Pro builds off the tools available in our free plugin. For example, in case you missed it, check out the new Learning Mode theme we released just last month.
- Dedicated Expert Support – Should you get stuck or want advice on making the best of Sensei, our team of Happiness Engineers is ready to assist.
How much does it cost?
Sensei Pro is $149 (USD) per year for one site. A license also lets you add Sensei Pro to additional staging or development sites.
If you have more than three sites and are interested in Sensei Pro, contact us and ask about a custom bulk license based on your needs.
What if I am already using WooCommerce Paid Courses?
You don’t need to do a thing.
The latest version of WooCommerce Paid Courses has been upgraded to the full Sensei Pro plugin. Existing customers will continue to have legacy pricing honored for as long as the subscription remains active.
In your WordPress dashboard plugins list, you will see it now called ‘Sensei Pro (WC Paid Courses)’. You will keep receiving updates and manage your subscription at WooCommerce.com, just as before.
What if I am already using the Content Drip extension?
If you had purchased both WooCommerce Paid Courses and Content Drip, you can now safely deactivate Content Drip and continue to use the drip features in the new Sensei Pro. We will soon cancel your Content Drip subscription once we make sure everyone has converted to Pro, which will save you a little money each year too.
If you had purchased Content Drip but did not have a WooCommerce Paid Courses license, you can keep using the Content Drip extension, and it will continue to work. However, we won’t be adding new features to the stand-alone Content Drip extension. We encourage you to consider upgrading to Sensei Pro to take advantage of the other features. If you upgrade to Pro, you can then cancel your Content Drip subscription. Your settings and drip schedules will migrate over seamlessly.
If you have any questions about this, please reach out to our support team and we will be happy to get you fixed up.
What about the free Sensei LMS?
The free Sensei LMS plugin remains the most feature-rich and easiest to use free course plugin for WordPress. We will keep improving it and adding new features to the open-source plugin alongside new improvements to Sensei Pro.
In the coming months, all Sensei LMS users can expect better student and course reports, a refreshed student management area, and new block patterns for lessons and course pages.
What’s next for Pro?
We know that you have a choice when it comes to an LMS plugin for WordPress. Unlike most other options, with Sensei Pro, there’s no need to cobble together complicated add-ons and expensive bundles. Coming soon to Sensei Pro you will find new support for managing groups and cohorts, new interactive blocks for engaging lesson content, quiz reports, and more.
How do I get started?
It is simple really, you can purchase and download Sensei Pro here.
