LearnDash 3.0 is more than just an update, it’s an entirely new standard for online courses.
In the world of software, there are updates, and then there are game-changers.
This is the latter.
After many months of research, design, and development – you now have access to the most cutting-edge online course platform on the market. Not just in WordPress, but across the entire e-learning industry.
LearnDash 3.0 (or LD3) is a fundamental shift in how online courses are both delivered and created. Long overdue for this industry in my opinion.
It would be near impossible for me to discuss everything that is new in LD3 (and let’s face it, you probably would rather just experience it yourself). But join me as I show you some of its highlights! 🙂
Visually impressive courses that learners will love and that give your brand a professional, polished image.
Here’s a hard truth: you can have amazing course content but if its presentation is lack-luster then it doesn’t really matter. Online course plugins and hosted course offerings are lazy (and sometimes reckless) in this area.
Either the visual experience is too minimal with just plain-text, and therefore not contributing to an engaging learning experience.
Or, the templates are over-designed. Clashing with the rest of the website and becoming too distracting.
Both scenarios are lose-lose. Your students have a poor learning experience and your brand suffers for lack of professionalism. If you are selling courses then this could even lead to higher refund rates.
LD3 solves this delicate balance for you.
We partnered with instructional design experts 3.7Designs to bring you a course experience like no other.
Every template is purposely designed to make your content shine, but at the same time help keep your learners engaged in the course.
The polished presentation gives you credibility and strengthens your brand. What will separate your courses from others is a culmination of the “little things”, like:
- Optimal course content display
- Intuitive and informative profiles
- Clear navigation tracking
- Multiple progress status points
- Clear success, information, and warning notifications
- Simple materials presentation
We have taken care of these (and so much more) for you!
Literally every visual aspect in LD3 has an intentional, thoughtful design so that you and your learners both benefit.
If you are currently using LearnDash, then after updating you can activate the new styles by navigating to LEARNDASH LMS > SETTINGS and selecting the LearnDash 3.0 template.
It is time for our expectations of online courses to evolve. The new LearnDash Focus Mode sets the bar higher.
My entire professional career has been in the e-learning industry. It has been thrilling to see the evolution in this space over the years, and I strongly believe this next feature to be the new direction for online course delivery.
We spent weeks analyzing every single popular course platform out there, from hosted solutions like Coursera and Teachable to other WordPress LMS plugins. We documented what they were doing right, and compared this against today’s e-learning trends. Through this research we found a tremendous opportunity area that everyone has been missing.
A dedicated virtual learning environment that is unmatched across the e-learning industry. Your learners will love it (and it will make you look really good).
