How can I display a syllabus of my online course content according to members and membership levels?
January 5, 2015 0 Comments
“I am currently in the process of creating my online course membership site using Wishlist, the course will be structured like this: 20 modules (every module is a membership level), every module contains 5-10 posts that will be dripped to the students on a weekly basis.
What I need are 2 things and I was wondering if you could tell be how they are possible to achieve (if they are possible in any way…):
1. Since my course contains a lot of content, I need my students to be able to track their progress so they would know in which module and post they are exactly.
2. I want the members dashboard to show the content divided to modules, and under each module will appear all the videos related to the relevant module. This would be like a syllabus of all the content.
How can I achieve these things? It’s very urgent for me as the course will be launched in 2 weeks.
It seems to me that we can help you achieve what you need for your course with a unique plugin we developed. I will address each of the things you need separately:
1. Regarding allowing members to track their progress:
From what I understand, you want your members to be able to see all the content that is available specifically to them. The best way to do that is by using a dynamic shortcode that presents every member their content.
You can achieve this by using our plugin Wishlist Smart Shortcodes. You need to use the Members Add-On. Using the add-on you can display a list of all the posts, pages, categories accessible to each member.
The shortcodes look like this:[ wlss_member_posts ] – To display all the posts accessible to each member [ wlss_member_pages ] – To display all the pages accessible to each member [ wlss_member_categories ] – To display all the categories accessible to each member

2. Regarding the syllabus:
If you want to display a syllabus of the course, you will also need to use the same plugin (Wishlist Smart Shortcodes), but for this purpose you will need the Content Add-On.
The shortcodes usage:
* You need to replace the levels names below to the right levels in your membership site:[ wlss_display_levels_posts levels=”Level 1,,Level 2,,Level 3″ ] – Display a list of all the posts accessible in each membership level by adding the shortcode below to any post/ page [ wlss_display_levels_pages levels=”Level 1,,Level 2,,Level 3″ ] – Display a list of all the pages accessible in each membership level by adding the shortcode below to any post/ page [ wlss_display_levels_categories levels=”Level 1,,Level 2,,Level 3″ ] – Display a list of all the categories accessible in each membership level by adding the shortcode below to any post/ page
