LearnDash Demo Site Update

LearnDash Demo LMSWe launched a big update to our LearnDash demo site earlier today. At first glance, the updates might not be obvious; after all, the site is less about look & feel than it is about showcasing what can be accomplished with LearnDash and WordPress. What you will definitely notice is that an account is now required to use the demo. While this does mean an extra step is required to use the site, it also means that it’s a lot easier for visitors to reliably test progress tracking, achievements and more.

So what else has changed? Our old login page is gone; we had a handful of issues that we weren’t happy about and the new page looks nicer. Registration is very different now too, as are all forms across the site. All of these changes are, of course, included in new sites that we build.

This also marks the first time we’re incorporating marketing automation (via Active Campaign) into a production site. Over the next few weeks we’ll be incorporating several new strategies that leverage automation tools to improve learning outcomes. (On a side note, we’re excited to be using Active Campaign; while it’s missing features we’d really like, the price point is great and their support team was fantastic when we were getting set up.)

    Hey Ryan – did you manage to get Learndash integrated with Active Campaign for triggering emails based on course and quiz completion? If so, did you do this via Zapier?

      I just checked, and no, we didn’t set that up for course and quiz completion. Right now Active Campaign is hooked into account registration only, and yes, that part uses Zapier.

      We almost always use WP Fusion for Active Campaign integration. It’s running on this site now. In a few cases we have used (and even built) other integrations, but for ease of use and comprehensiveness we try to use WP Fusion when we can.
