Hey Christine,
What do you mean by question types?  I just signed up for the free Ruzuku trial.  It's UI is very easy to pick-up on.  I've spent 10 minutes in the software and have not come across a thing yet that is not very easy to learn to do.  I don't know if they have what you would be looking for as far as quiz type features.  They do have a "Health" feature that allows you to look at all your students taking your course and see follow their progress.  I would give the trial a look.  We are finding it is better that LearnDash in our opinion.

Thanks Brandon.  We are feeling a bit at sea at the moment to be honest.  I hadn't heard of Ruzuku.  What question types do they have?

Comment by Brandon Magras on January 3, 2016 at 12:02pm

Thanks Christine.  We have tried LearnDash, and came to the point where we felt they did not think everything through, and were limited by what we could do with it.  I've been looking into Ruzuku as of late.

Hi, we looked at this not long ago.  What we found was that different plugins had different features.  We went with LearnDash because it was important to us to be able to incorporate quizzes and statistics.  We also needed to drip feed content.  The ability to use TinCan api was also a consideration.  If you don't need the quiz features then zippy courses looks good.

Hello Everyone! 
I wanted to ask if any one has a list of the pros and cons of the different course building options out there.  I have a DIY WordPress web design course that was created on our own, but would like to package it to take advantage of the automation and support that is integrated in some of these course building options.  Are there any that you find that are better than others?  Or some that you have tried and found lacking?  Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Comment by Christine Draper on January 3, 2016 at 10:30am

Is anyone else using LearnDash to write your courses?

Comment by Alan West on December 7, 2015 at 12:22pm

Hey everyone. If you haven't checked out my podcast about online courses, I highly recommend the last few episodes.

I recently had the privilege of interviewing Dan Miller about online courses and digital products. He gave some really good insights that I know you all will love. Check out the podcast interview at OnlineCourseCoach.com/danmiller and let me know what you learned. Also, I'd be honored if you shared it via social media so others can enjoy Dan's wisdom.

Hi Everyone,

I found a new site to create great videos. They have a small selection of free templates and the others are a few dollars. It is an alternative to Animoto.

Here are two promo videos I just created
