Video Lesson Maker™

Better space for seriously creative lesson design.
Better space for learners to engage, think, reflect and plan.

As learning designers, finding tools for ‘top-down’ course content is easy. Click this, scroll here, look at that, select that. But it’s harder to find the right tools for transformational learning where we want to give the learners better space to think, consider, reflect, plan, assess, evaluate, change.

Conventional tools like Rise or Articulate simply aren’t designed for that.

That’s exactly why we developed the Learnbase Video Lesson Maker™, now used by thousands of learners in legal, health, education, technical and vocational programs that aim for real change, not just compliance.

It’s not just about engaging your learners with your lessons.
It’s about lessons that engage learners with themselves.

The Learnbase Video Lesson Maker™ is a solution for WordPress that allows you to create a unique facilitated online learning experience, either within a course sequence or for stand-alone lessons.

The Video Lesson Maker™ puts an array of lesson design tools at your fingertips:  interactive video tools, clear in-video navigation, workbook and note section that lets you create sophisticated single-page lessons and deliver them in customized colours and formats anywhere on your WordPress site.

It’s not simply a lesson authoring tool – it’s an educational approach.

Video Lesson Maker™ Add Ons

Video Lesson Maker Mentor Feedback

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 to a mentor. When the mentor submits their feedback it 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.

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

Included with: Small Business Starter Pack, Organizational Starter Pack

Video Lesson Maker Multiple Mentors

Control exactly who sees submissions from specific lessons.

This add-on is designed for

  1. more complex multi-organizational course platforms, where you need to control who is able to see the submissions from specific lessons
  2. for courses where you have a team of mentors and you want to create specific submission queues for specific mentors.
Included with: Organizational Starter Pack

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 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.

What kind of video streaming service do I need?

The Learnbase Video Lesson Maker is designed to work seamlessly with Vimeo, so a Vimeo account is required. That means that Vimeo does the heavy lifting on the video delivery, not your server! 

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 to help you get the most out of interactive video based learning. 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). It is designed to enhance the learning capabilities of any WordPress LMS such as Learndash, Lifter LMS, WP LMS, WP Courseware, Learnpress, Coursepress etc. 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 so it is easy to fly in quizzes, slides and learning games from any of your favourite learning design solutions like H5P, slides.com, Google slides etc.

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.
