Quick Overview 

Why we like LearnDash?

We use LearnDash more than any other Learning Management Systems because we are WordPress developers. LearnDash is the best learning management system that we have found. The following are reasons why we really love this application.

1. Reliability & Stability It is one of those software that is super reliable. Each time they launch a new update version of the application, you would seldom find any software bugs. This means the company’s pre-launch software testing procedures must have been very thorough and they make sure that the software is working well before they release an enhancement or version update. When you run an website selling courses, you want to be sure that it works smoothly, particularly the payment gateway. Thus far, LearnDash software has been very reliable.

2. Well Structured and Flexible -The LearnDash application has been so carefully designed and well thought out that it allows for a lot of flexibilties and gives course creators a lot of power in designing the structure and functionalities of the courses. 

3. As a WordPress Plugin – It is ideal for WordPress developers and any company that choose to use WordPress to build their website. You can add the LearnDash learning management system easily with just a few clicks.
