Themeum just announced Tutor LMS v1.7.1. The WordPress LMS plugin now comes with some amazing new features including integration for Zoom, Google Classroom, and the REST API.
Live Zoom Classes
The top-rated e-learning plugin for WordPress now allows you to manage, schedule, and hold live online classes by using Zoom with ease. Simply enter your Zoom API and Secret keys at Tutor LMS Pro > Zoom > Set API. You are then able to create general meetings and live lessons from both the backend and the frontend course builder.
If students are enrolled in the course, they can then attend the meeting from the course page. They have the option of either starting the Zoom app directly or starting the meeting in the browser.
Google Classroom is similar to Tutor LMS in many ways, as it simplifies the process of sharing files between teachers and students. You can assign quizzes, tasks and questions for students to solve and send grades and announcements. However, it lacks two essential features including teaching and monetization options. But in combination with Tutor LMS this works just fine.
Simply enable the Google Classroom add-on at Tutor LMS Pro > Addons and connect your Google Classroom account to Tutor LMS by using your credentials which you can get from the Google Dev Console.
The latest update finally brings a long awaited support for REST API, making Tutor LMS more extensible than ever before. They also added a new shortcode that allows you to showcase your list of course instructors, cover photos in public profiles, and a redesigned profile page view.
