Create Live Events With Google Meet
Now you can conduct video meetings for Tutor LMS courses and individual lessons with Google Meet. We have integrated Google Meet with Tutor LMS using an add-on feature of Tutor LMS Pro.
Please follow the step-by-step documentation on how to set up Google Meet with your Tutor LMS site and create meeting links. Once you’re done with the setup, you can also send Google Meeting invitations to enrolled students in Tutor LMS.
Dedicated Login Page With Shortcode
To get a dedicated login page, head over to your dashboard > Tutor LMS > Tools > Tutor Pages and click on the Re-Generate Tutor Pages button. You can also use the shortcode [tutor_login] to add a login page to your Tutor LMS site.
Allow Access to Next Course Content Based on Mandatory Pass in a Quiz
With this update, we have also brought the much-requested feature that is allowing access to the next course content based on a mandatory pass in a quiz. If you want your students to receive a passing grade before they can move on to the next course content, you can enable it from Quiz Builder.
To get this option, you have to do the following:
- Enable Content Drip for the selected course
- Set the Content Drip type to “Course content available sequentially”
- Now, in the Quiz Builder Settings enable “Passing is Required”
Note: For any open-ended question (short/broad description) which requires the instructor’s review, the next course content will be available only when the instructor reviews the quiz.
Get Course Duplication Feature on Front-end
Tutor LMS v2.1.0 introduces a course duplication feature on the front-end dashboard that will definitely come in handy when you want to reuse course content and structure instead of starting all over. Easily duplicate a course and reuse or edit the content from the front end with the Course Duplication feature.
Automatic Invoice Generation on Manual Enrollment
Now, when you manually enroll a student in a paid course, an invoice will be automatically generated. Once the Payment Status is marked as Completed, the earning report will reflect the changes.
