New! Make Interactive Lesson Content Required

Updated on August 9, 2022

Last month, we released new blocks for quizzes, flashcards, image hotspots, and tasklists.

With the latest release of Sensei Pro, you can mark these blocks as ‘required’ in a lesson. Required elements must be interacted with before a learner can complete the lesson.

The new required features work with YouTube, VideoPress, and Vimeo videos too!

Required content is ideal for certification courses, employee training, and anytime you want to ensure a student doesn’t just skim through a lesson.

How Does It Work?

First, add the block to your lesson content that you want to make required.

The following block can be marked ‘required’:

  • Questions (multiple-choice, true/false, etc.)
  • Video
  • Flashcards
  • Image Hotspots
  • Tasklists

In the editor, look for the * icon in the block toolbar. Then, just enable the setting, and Sensei takes care of the rest.

For the learner, the ‘Complete Lesson’ button will be greyed out with information about how many required elements remain in the lesson.

Sensei also adds a small circle icon to the side of required elements in the lesson and will show a checkmark in the circle once completed.

Student progress is saved, so they can come back and finish a lesson later.

Getting Started

The ‘Required’ feature is available now in Sensei Pro.

Sensei Pro adds WooCommerce integration, content drip, advanced quiz features, and more to the free Sensei LMS course builder.
