Student and Quiz tracking

Our Joomla LMS component allows you to track your students progress and also have quiz tracking built in!

Feature details:

  • The course manager now shows the number of students enrolled in each course.
  • You’ll be able to click to see which students have enrolled.
  • Check where each student is in the course (right down to module and lesson).
  • View the last time they visited (so you can spot the slackers — and those likely to drop out.)
  • And review your students’ quiz results so that you can see how much they’re learning.

On the front end:

Students can see where they are in the course
Students can see how they scored in each quiz, each time they took it

Quiz Tracking

In fact, that quiz tracking feature won’t just tell you the results. It will also show which quizzes each student took, as well as the score for each attempt, the dates they took it and the number of times they tried.

 
 

Quiz

Joomla LMS certificates

Joomla LMS learning quizzes are a great way to find out if your students understand the learning material.

Teacher Interface

Your teachers can prepare whole courses themselves, letting you collect either a percentage of the sales or a set fee. It's up to you.

Teacher Registration Is Easy

Your teachers can register quickly, receive your approval, then start working on their courses right away. You will be notified when a new teacher requires your approval.

Review, Publish, You're Done!

When teachers can prepare their courses without the help of the site's admin, all you need to do is review the course and publish. You'll have all the time you need to promote the course, bring in students and make money!

Teachers Can Create New Quizzes And Add Media

To build a really comprehensive course, teachers will need to be able to add quizzes and media. Teachers can do that by embedding media, linking to it or uploading it directly to your server.

Stats About Students

The teachers' interface also gives teachers stats about their students and full access to quiz results. They can see how well students are doing and receive detailed information that shows which students succeeded where — and where they need to work harder.

Certificates Manager

Giving your students certificates validates your courses and helps them get jobs!

Why are Certificates a great idea?

If your potential students know they can get a certificate that will help them get hired or improve their resume, then there is a much better chance that they will sign up for your courses! More students = More cash for you!

Certificate Designs

Guru comes with 16 beautiful certificate templates you can choose from. You can add your logo to any of the templates and you can even upload your own template, just create a 800x600 px image and upload it.


 

Content and Email templates

  • Choose what information will show on the certificates (name, course, etc.)
  • Control the content of the email the student gets when he/she is eligible to a certificate

Front End Features:

We added a new page to the student interface "My Certificates". On this page students can:

  • View their certificate
  • Download it as PDF
  • Share it with a link and
  • Email it

If they are not eligible for a certificate, for any reason, they can see why.

 Clicking on the email icon opens this pop-up and allows the student to email their certificate.

 Clicking on the link icon opens this pop-up. It allows them to copy a direct URL to their certificate:

Certificate Terms:

How does Guru know which of the students deserves a certificate? When you create/edit a course, you can choose any of the terms below:

  • No certificates
  • Completed all the lessons
  • Passed the final exam
  • Passed the quizzes in avg of x%
  • Completed all the lessons and pass the final exam in avg of x%
  • Completed all the lessons and pass quizzes in avg of x%

certificate term

The final result:

Release your lessons gradually and keep students coming back for more daily/weekly

This feature allows you to release their lessons gradually — once a day or once a week or once a month. Not only can you stop students jumping around on the course, you can now use your course as a marketing machine. Send students an email each time a lesson is ready and you’ll bring them back to your site automatically. They’ll stay on your course and renew their subscription to gain access to the remaining lessons. You’ll get more money in your pocket.

How It Works

Backend

On the Lesson Edit page, choose the type of course you wish to create:

  • Non-Sequential – All lessons are available as soon as the student signs up.
  • Sequential – Lessons are available one at a time, every day/week/month.

You can also choose how unavailable courses will be displayed on the course table of content:

  • Show all lessons, including the unavailable ones. (Unreleased lessons ones are gray and not clickable.)
  • Show only the available lessons.

Once you make a course sequential, it's very important that you add an automatic email reminder that will send your student an email each time a lesson becomes available for them.
  • Go to Courses Manager and click Edit next to the course you made sequential
  • On pricing/plans tab check the box next to the email "New Lesson"

Check the box next to new lesson email template

  • You can always edit the content of this email by going to Subscriptions->System Emails

New lesson email template

Front End

Available lessons will display the word “Available”. Lessons that are not yet available will display the date on which the lesson will be released to the student. (The date will be different for each student.)
