Learning Design

Maker View

The Lesson Maker view opens right within your wordpress site bringing together heaps of functionality that would normally take a whole bunch of plugins to create. The completely unique template models the way good teachers plan great lessons. It’s not simply a lesson authoring tool – it’s an educational approach.

...improve the experience of any WordPress LMS

There are a number of great Learning Management System choices for WordPress to help you build and deliver courses. But they don’t help you to make great lessons. That’s where the Video Lesson Maker comes in and it all fits right into your WordPress site.

...deepen micro-learning

Not all online learning need an Learning Management System. Sometimes you just want your learners to be able to search for, find and complete a single micro-lesson…fast.

...make lessons that co-create learning

Learners can download / print all the (non-interactive) content you add to the Workbook section of the lesson along with the notes they make – a co-created workbook!

...deliver lessons to logged-in or anonymous users

Add any interactive lesson feature (quizzes, questionnaires, games, presentations) from your favorite tools via iframe, ie H5P, Google presentations, surveylegend, WP Viral Quiz etc.  (Shortcode insertion coming soon!)

...deliver lessons to logged-in or anonymous users

If you don’t want your learners to log into a site or course, the Video Lesson Maker can be used for anonymous users. There notes will still get saved and be there when they return.

...plan just like you would for the classroom

We don’t see the video part of the lessons as extra content. We don’t see it as simply the subject matter content. Ideally, the video can also include the guiding voice through the lesson, just like the teacher in a classroom.

...put more at your learners' fingertips

Most online courses involve clicking through many pages. The Video Lesson Maker helps you deliver more in-depth lessons on a single page, while avoiding overwhelm and forcing too much tiresome navigation on your learners.

This is a great tool. I love the format – great access to sections, support info, and I love the option to use the index at the side to pick and choose. Great idea to also let us print various workbook portions that might be helpful. Overall – FANTASTIC!

Video Lesson Feedback Add-On

Give meaningful individual feedback and guidance directly within lessons.

Personalize the learning experience with direct real feedback.

The Video Lesson Feedback™ Add-On allows learners to submit the workbook section of their Video lesson for feedback that arrives directly within lesson.

Whenever you receive a submission you get notified via email and can click directly to the site to provide personalized feedback.  The learner in turn is notified and can also click back directly to the lesson to see their feedback in full context.

A submission report page allows you to oversee and administer feedback, see how many sections you have provided feedback on and also to mark complete when you decide the learner has completed the task. Assign a Mentor role so that multiple staff members limited admin access to the submissions page.

You can also keep the section open for further responses or lock it when complete so that the text editor disappears from the section in the learner’s view.

Video Lesson Maker FAQs

Where can I put these video lessons?

You can put a Learnbase Video Lesson on any page, post or custom content type on your WordPress site , using the shortcode generated when you create a lesson, . This means you can add them to any lesson/topic/course page in a WordPress Learning Management System.

How can I monetize this?

To monetize your lessons, you can either use a Learning Management System to create a course that is made to be purchased OR use a Membership Plugin and offer course pages only to paid members. Your Learning Management System should also integrate with a purchase/subscription shopping cart like Woo Commerce.

Do I need a Vimeo account? Will it work with Youtube?

The Learnbase Video Lesson Maker will work with YouTube Videos but this is not recommended or supported. We recommend hosting your videos on Vimeo. YouTube has moved to a more branded approach which looks less professional in a course. 

Are the Video Lessons mobile responsive?

Yes. The format stacks so that the video index area ‘accordions’ open when required beneath the video area.

Learnbase Video Lessons prompt users to switch to horizontal view for a better mobile experience. So learners can check in with lessons on mobile. As Learnbase Video Lessons is designed for a more active involved learning approach, we do recommend that users are encouraged to use larger devices to get more immersed, in the same way that you would use a larger device for more serious involved work contexts.

Do I need training to use it?

It is good to get acquainted with the main features and the methodology of the Learnbase Video Lesson Maker. We have a thorough and growing knowledge base as well as a video tutorial. We are also available for consultation at reasonable rates if you want more personalized training, ideas and recommendations for how to optimize your learning program.

Does it work with Gutenburg?

Yes. With a temporary caveat – it works fine in the front end but appears not to save in the backend.
This is a known Gutenburg issue which we (the community) are waiting for them to resolve.

Is this a Learning Management System?

This is not a Learning Management System (LMS). However Learnbase Video Lessons will work within an LMS. The lessons can be placed by shortcode in any lesson, or topic of an LMS, or can be used independently of an LMS for simpler courses.

Do I need a Learning Management System?

No, you do not need a Learning Management System; Learnbase Video Lessons can be placed on any WordPress post or page using a shortcode.

Can I use shortcodes within the Lesson Maker?

At this time, shortcodes cannot be used to embed content in the Video Lesson Maker; iframes are used instead. The ability to use shortcodes will be part of Version 2!

Do users have to be logged in?

Learnbase Video Lesson Maker works almost identically with logged in anonymous users. Users’ notes are saved in their browser if they are not logged in, and saved to the database if they are logged in. Courses have been made entirely for anonymous users using the Video Lesson Maker where a payment gateway is not an issue.

Do I need a WordPress Site?

Yes! Learnbase Video Lesson Maker is a WordPress plugin. If you need a site deployed to get up and running then we are here to help.

Does it work with Page Editors?

Yes! Add the Learnbase shortcode to an HTML block.
