BuddyPress Courseware with LifterLMS

A social network can be a real asset to online learning. In this LMScast Joshua Millage and Christopher Badgett talk about BuddyPress Courseware, its relation to learning management systems like LifterLMS, and how social networking can enhance your online courses.

Most of us are familiar with online social networks like Facebook, but have never really defined what they are. A social network can be part of a website, but it is not a website in itself. Its function is to allow groups of people to share information with each other through blogs, activity feeds, visual media, and private messaging.

BuddyPress Courseware is a social network development plugin for WordPress that lets you integrate a social network into your online learning environment. Combined with a learning management system like LifterLMS, students can create profiles, participate in course discussions, and stay in touch with their instructors. You can have closed forums for specific courses, or an open social network for everyone in your system. You can also have free access and paid membership areas.
