We’re very pleased to announce that Sensei LMS is now available on WordPress.org! 🙌
This is the free version of Sensei LMS (previously known as Sensei) that enables the creation of free online courses. Selling online courses is possible using the WooCommerce Paid Courses extension, which integrates with WooCommerce, WooCommerce Subscriptions and WooCommerce Memberships.
We hope that by making Sensei LMS available on WordPress.org, we are doing our part to democratize online learning!
The next beta, Sensei LMS 2.0.1 Beta 1, is ready for testing. It contains changes that rename the plugin from Sensei to Sensei LMS.
We recognize that the naming of this beta may be confusing. Given that Sensei 2.0 was made available prematurely on WordPress.org for a short period of time, we’ve had to rename the plugin from Sensei to Sensei LMS in order to prevent the same situation from happening again.
We’ve also bumped the version to 2.0.1, since technically Sensei 2.0.0 was briefly (albeit erroneously) released.
