LearnDash 4.0: Some Important Questions

If you’re just starting out and you’re looking for something that gives good value for your money, nothing beats Contabo. It’s got great speed and performance.
But if you want to create high-volume course sites, I’d recommend CloudWays.

LearnDash 4.0: What I Like About It
There’s a lot I like about the new LearnDash mainly because the team behind it really prioritized the learners’ experience. The Focus Mode is truly game-changing, and the Course Builder makes course creators’ lives so easy.
I also like the support they provide to users. After installing LearnDash, you’ll be taken to the built-in LearnDash Bootcamp, where you can watch tutorials on how to set up LearnDash. You can also read how-to articles, recent announcements, and events, and learn tips and tricks like adding a course affiliate program through LearnDash – all these right inside WordPress.
If you’re having issues with LearnDash, you can check out their extensive knowledge base. If you still haven’t found the answer, you can submit a ticket by going to their Contact page.
LearnDash pretty much does everything for you from building your courses to creating user profiles, but if you need to use third-party software for additional functionality, it’s good to know that the LearnDash learning management system is compatible with a lot of popular software.
LearnDash 4.0: What I Don’t Like About It
Since this version has only been recently released, there’s still a lot to see in terms of compatibility with other WordPress plugins like page builders, caching plugins, and so on.
Also, LearnDash is not an all-in-one solution in the sense that you may need to also have a shopping cart and a membership plugin. So it is more designed to work with your existing infrastructure.
Yes, you can sell courses in a basic way without a shopping cart, but it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles you may want, like coupons, product bundles, etc. It’s not so bad since it is very easy to add WooCommerce.
LearnDash is not a membership plugin. So if you want to protect content outside the lessons themselves, you will need to also add a membership plugin such as MemberPress or Restrict Content Pro.
LearnDash 4.0 Review: Final Thoughts
LearnDash 4.0 is a truly revolutionary learning management system in the world of e-learning. It set the bar really high, and I know it’s only going to get better from here. I’m excited to see future updates and new features that will improve the experience even more.
I recommend LearnDash to anyone who wants the easiest way to create a self-hosted course website without breaking the bank.
