      Hello there I’m a tutor and teach English to people from Brazil … I am new with wordpress plugins and I installed your program but it didn’t work, It says A FATAL ERROR not too sure why but I was wondering if it is because of the theme I’m using at the moment. Can you help me to make it work?
      KIndest Regards-

        Hello,
        looks like you didn’t install BuddyPress (which is a dependency).
        Could you try installing it, and test again.
        Thanks.

      Stas,

      Great plugin! Have a small problem though. I installed the courseware plugin with the default buddypress theme, however am unable to find the Courseware dashboard. I followed your video, and somewhere you install your own theme, then viola… the courseware dashboard appears.

      How can I get to the courseware dashboard to create classes?

      Thanks,
      Kamal

    It’s midterm and I need your feedback my friends! You can download the latest Courseware from:

    https://github.com/scholarpress/buddypress-courseware/archives/master

    You will need latest stable WordPress and BuddyPress 1.3 to be able to use that.
    What you get in the new release:

    • Quizzes support for assignments with a brand new form builder, automatic grading and responses with correct/wrong answers
    • Improved and simplified workflow, replaced sub-courses/learning styles with lectures that have a handbook navigation style (tree, next, previous), a bookmarking system (so you will never forget where you left)
    • An updated UI/UX with icons, cleaner interface and a simplified administration dashboard
    • An updated dashboard with progress indicator (based on solved assignments)
    • Zen mode for editors! :)
    • Security improvements for uploads (uploads are now private for every user/post)
    • A compatibility layer so users will never get installation problems because their BuddyPress has a component disabled!
    • Other small fixes, here and there :)

    Bonus!

    This will bring Courseware close to 0.9 release (0.9 because with the features from above, I can finally start calling it a full featured LMS, it’s not a hack anymore). Users who want to play with it, but don’t want to install it, use the http://courseware.nerd.ro sandbox!

    Feedback is welcome!!!
    Thank you.

      Thanks, Stas! I’m really looking forward to using it after we upgrade to 1.3. In the meantime, I’ll play at nerd.ro. Many deep and appreciative thanks to you!

      hello Stas, i just downloaded the version above and when i activate it has a error like this:

      “Fatal error: Cannot redeclare bpsp_textdomain() (previously declared in /wp-content/plugins/buddypress-courseware/courseware.php:40) in /wp-content/plugins/scholarpress-buddypress-courseware-b0c9df8/courseware.php on line 42″

      could you please help me

      • jayanratna 2:26 on 22 July, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        sorry for my previous comment i have sorted out the issue. But now none of the courseware pages work. Please help me :)

      • Stas Sușcov 11:04 on 22 July, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        1st. problem is that you were having 2 Courseware copies of the plugin
        2nd problem, looks like you did not enable Courseware globally nor per group, check the Courseware options page or group settings page for that

    • jayanratna 4:08 on 24 July, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      i did everything you told me to do but it still the the page not found error. do you know how to fix it?

    • Frances Flynn Thorsen 21:43 on 4 August, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      (1.) I am unable to ADD A BOOK in Bioblography. The error message says, “Book cannot be added.” I tried the ISBN-10 first and then the ISBN-13 listed on Amazon.

      (2.) When I try to CREATE A NEW ASSIGNMENT, two Courseware horizontal nav bars appear at the bottom of the screen the “Create a new assignment” link is highlighted, and there is nowhere to go with it.

      (3.) I cannot find a CREATE A NEW LECTURE button.

      (4) The COURSE DESCRIPTION field box is a simple text box, there is not entry editor facility as shown on the Courseware handbook page.

      Could we please have support for WordPress 3.2 on your amazing plugin

      • Stas Sușcov 14:33 on 6 July, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        The quiz builder is a totally different project and I DO plan to release a plugin using it for creating WordPress forms. :)
        In nearest future, but after gsoc!

        • Jayan Ratna 6:41 on 7 July, 2011 Permalink

          oh sorry, i was saying if you could make courseware compatible with wordpress 3.2 as i cant add new assignments and courses.

        • Stas Sușcov 7:34 on 7 July, 2011 Permalink

          The new version, is compatible with 3.2 and BuddyPress 1.3.
          It will be released soon, very soon! :)

      Hey Stas, thank you for a great plugin! I have a question, does the version in the wordpress respiratory include the quizzes feature? If not, in what time frame do you estimate it will? Best regards!

      • Stas Sușcov 13:38 on 9 October, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Hi Thomas, and thanks.
        Latest 0.9.x version has it! Install it right from the plugins menu in WordPress.

    • Ingebjørg 9:30 on 7 October, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      This is great ! Hi Stas, I installed the BP scholarpress courseware, and somehow it won´t display right. I really need this plugin for my school, it is brilliant.
      I run genesis framework, genesis connect and BuddyPress. Do you have any idea to how to solve this matter?

      Are you planning to make this plugin in other languages?

      • Stas Sușcov 13:40 on 9 October, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Hi Ingebjørg,
        unfortunately I can’t help with the commercial themes :(
        You need to find a designer for you to help.
        Sorry I can’t help more. Btw, nice website!!!

      Stas, this is a wonderful plugin. Thank you very much.

      Might I ask where the assignment questions are stored? I am trying to figure out how to import many questions at once. I have searched the database and found the lecture and assignment entries, but it seems the assignment questions are stored elsewhere.

      Hi Stas,

      Good day!

      I think I’m missing something, but I could not add any quiz. I can see the dropdown to add quiz/test but everytime I “save” it, it’s not keeping.

      Am I missing something with my install?

      I’d like to highlight that I have only these plugins installed:

      Achievements
      Akismet and the courseware.

      Hoping for some response.

      • Stas Sușcov 14:04 on 3 January, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        Hello Ray,
        I would like to ask you to post to Courseware forums the version of BuddyPress and WordPress you are using. And if you did any upgrades recently to any of these.
        Thanks.

    • CSS moved into a separate file
    • Applied jsbeautifier and jshint on code
    • Added control box target element option
    • Added localization support
    • Improved dynamic loading, unique ID handling for multiple formbuilder-instances
    • Removed scrollTo dependency in favour of jQuery.animate()
    • Added json backend, to replace/as alternative to xml

    And the diff I sent for merge with official project.

    Some progress on new assignments component (tests/quiz part)

    The component will use the jquery.formbuilder code. I forked it to add support for:

    • localizations
    • question answer(s) field
    • json backend instead of xml
    • better UI
    • small bugfixing
