Create A Course Website | LearnDash Tutorial

WordPress,WordPress Plugins

Important links used in this video

Learn how to create a course website that enables you to sell courses on autopilot. You will learn how to create one or multiple courses and add modules and lessons to the course. You can fill those lessons with content using the WordPress editor or use videos that you upload or fetch from an external video platform like YouTube or Vimeo.

You will learn how to set up payment gateways like Stripe or Paypal so your website visitors can pay with multiple payment methods like CreditCard, Paypal, and more. You can offer a discount and in that way make a lot of sales in a short amount of time. We can also create a custom landing page with a page builder like Elementor and in that way increase your conversion ratio. LearnDash is the best WordPress plugin for turning your website into a course platform.

    Hi Ferdy,
    currently (2024-26-Feb) you have broken shortcodes for LearnDash making it appear the plugin is inactive on your site.

    Hi Ferdy, Thank you for all of your great content. Can you please help? I need to place quizzes and courses on my website using LearnDash … your video ‘How To Create An Online Course Website In WordPress Using LearnDash’ says there should be a link to a video on certificates but there isn’t. Big fan hoping for a helping hand 🙂
