Amazing Features On The Table For Elearning Business
With Academy LMS, we are aiming to spread eLearning opportunities for learners of all trades. That is why we’ve made most of our features available in the free version. But we are launching the pro version to improve this next-generation LMS plugin and keep our motivation alive. For now, we are releasing six pro features.
Let’s explore the features and some exciting new information about LMS Pro.
Better Communication Via Email Notification
We’ve introduced the addon feature in our recent 1.3.1 version update, where you will get some essential addons. You can simply activate the addon and get that feature ready to use. However, in the pro version, we’ve added the Email Notification Feature, which is an exclusive add-on.
After activating the Email Notification from the Addon section, you will be able to view the Email option from Settings.
On general settings of email, you can set recipients, content type, and footer text for automatic notification. Up next, there is an Enroll courses option which allows you to send email notifications upon course enrollment.
By activating the Email Notification, you will be able to send automated emails to the students & instructors. You can notify the students and instructors upon course enrollment, successful course completion, and quiz completion.
Here are the Email notification option available in Academy LMS Pro:
For Enroll Courses, Admin, Instructor, and User will get notified when a student gets enrolled for a course. The same goes for Finished courses, where Admin, Instructors, and users get email notifications when a course is finished by the students.
You can enable or disable the email notification to the admins when a course enrollment request is placed. Then you can set the email’s subject and create the email body from this page. Finally, you can get a preview in the same section and send a test mail to check if the settings are ok.
The third option is- Become An Instructor, where the admin gets an email notification when someone requests to become an instructor. The applicant also gets an email notification if accepted or denied.
With an email notification system, communication becomes automated for significant scenarios. Admins, students, and instructors are getting system-generated emails effortlessly and automatically. Hence, you are getting a better eLearning business management option with this feature.
Flexible Course Control via Manual Enrollment
Manual Enrollment is yet another amazing course management feature of Academy LMS Pro. This feature is available in the Academy LMS addon section, where you need to activate it. After activating this addon.
Simply go to Add-ons and activate the Manual Enrolment addon to activate this feature. After activating it, click the Wheel icon to move on to the manual enrollment process.
Now, you will be redirected to the Students section, where you can click the Enroll Student button and start the manual enrolment process.
After clicking the button, you will get a popup on your screen for manual enrollment. Admin can enter the student’s name and then select a course to enroll the student in that selected course.
This feature allows the administrator to gain more control over courses, which is crucial to maintaining a website for learning. Once a student has been manually enrolled in your eLearning site, you can view their information in the All Students section.
Let’s say a student has completed a course on your eLearning site and wants to take more courses. If the course is not visible upon request, students are getting more courses with the admin’s approval.
This feature also becomes handy when a student is having trouble enrolling in a course. However, administrators may manually enroll a student to add them to a course as a supplement.
Now let’s move on to the Academy LMS Pro feature that will enhance your eLearning business.
Schedule Course Contents Using Content Drip
If you manage an online learning platform, you must carefully schedule the course content. Because they should access courses one at a time after progressively learning a lesson.
The learners should only have immediate access to part of the set of course materials. because it’s possible for students to start one course by accident while skipping an essential one. This is where Academy LMS Pro’s Drip Content Feature will help you schedule the course content.
This feature is also available in the Addon section of the Academy LMS, where you can enable it. It allows admins or instructors to set the schedule for course content. As a result, the course content will be available to the students based on the selected schedule.
Drip Content contains the following options for scheduling course content:
- Schedule course contents by date
- Content available after X Days from enrolment
- Course content available sequentially
- Course content unlocked after finishing prerequisites
Let’s say a course is scheduled for 4 months and all the course contents are available for the student. However, if students go on to the next course before completing the previous one, they need to learn more effectively.
The Drip content allows students to learn progressively within a given schedule, and courses will be unlocked by following certain conditions such as date, enrollment date, sequence, and prerequisites. With this approach, you may maintain the natural sequence of learning in your online learning platform.
Payment Collection Via WooCommerce Subscription Integration
WooCommerce Subscriptions integration is another essential feature of Academy LMS Pro. With this feature, the payment process gets automated along with the subscription deadline. Users can therefore buy paid courses through a monthly or annual subscription. Furthermore, at the end of each month or year, the subscription is auto-renewed via a recurring payment method.
You need the following plugins installed and activated to get WooCommerce Subscriptions Integration:
- Academy LMS
- Academy LMS Pro
- WooCommerce Subscriptions
After installing the above-mentioned plugins, go to the Addon section of the Academy LMS and enable the subscription integration. This feature will assist students in registering for a course via a subscription-based payment method.
With Woocommerce subscription integration, your eLearning business will experience a variety of benefits, such as
- Multiple billing cycles are available to accommodate the demands of your business.
- More than 25 payment gateways are available for collecting recurring payments.
- Manual payment renewals through several payment gateways, along with receipts and invoices.
- You won’t lose revenue since it supports automatic rebilling upon failed subscriptions.
- Subscribers can choose their own plan.
- Admins and users will get detailed reports on revenue, renewal, subscription, and more.
Apart from the above-mentioned five features, we are going to upgrade our other add-ons as well. Our aim is to provide an eLearning ecosystem so that you can create an eLearning website that thrives in the marketplace.

But the pro version will unlock advanced analytics options that will improve your overall eLearning metrics. Even though we’ll be releasing this fantastic pro feature the following week, let’s first take a quick trip through it.
