You can use LearnDash to create and sell online courses straight out of the box. However, like any good product, the team at LearnDash have created some really cool add-ons – free for license holders – that will expand the capabilities of your elearning platform.
You can access the add-ons from your LearnDash menu:
All of these add-ons give extra features and functions for ecommerce, memberships, layout and design and much more. Some of the add-ons do require you to have that plugin active (for example Woocommerce).
As well as the free add-ons, LearnDash also provides third party add-ons, which are created and managed by third party companies; you will also need to pay for most of them.
Whether you need any of these add-ons, depends on the nature of your website and the interaction required. For example, one of my clients works with corporate entities and needs to provide in-depth user reports, so we have purchased the Uncanny Toolkit Pro add-on.
Alright, let’s move on and look at how easy it is to create courses in LearnDash.
