In the responses to our recent survey, one request came up again and again.
Publishers wanted a way to let teachers add their own courses themselves.
We thought that was a great idea. (In fact, it was something we'd already started work on even before we'd sent out the survey.)
So we made it happen in this version of Guru.
The Guru Front-End Teacher Interface Is Here!
Your teachers can now prepare whole courses themselves, letting you collect either a percentage of the sales or a set fee. It's up to you.
Teacher Registration Is Easy
Your teachers can register quickly, receive your approval, then start working on their courses right away. You will be notified when a new teacher requires your approval.
Review, Publish, You're Done!
When teachers can prepare their courses without the help of the site's admin, all you need to do is review the course and publish. You'll have all the time you need to promote the course, bring in students and make money!
Teachers Can Create New Quizzes And Add Media
To build a really comprehensive course, teachers will need to be able to add quizzes and media. Teachers can do that by embedding media, linking to it or uploading it directly to your server.
Stats About Students
The teachers' interface also gives teachers stats about their students and full access to quiz results. They can see how well students are doing and receive detailed information that shows which students succeeded where — and where they need to work harder.
Mass Video Import And Automatic Lesson Generation
Another very useful new feature is the ability to import whole playlists from YouTube or entire albums from Vimeo. Each video will automatically generate a lesson placed in the module of a selected course. Video titles and descriptions are fetched automatically. This powerful feature will save you hours of work! Read more about this feature here.
Additional Features In Version 3.2.0
In addition to the new teacher's interface, we've included other improvements to Guru:
Got a big quiz with 100 questions? Spread them over a couple of pages.
Automatic Fetching of Video Content
When you add videos from any of the supported video hosts, you are now able to fetch the video's title, thumbnail and description easily. You can read more about it here.
More Information About Orders
See which course was purchased on the backend "orders" page.
Organize Lessons Alphabetically
A single click brings order to your lessons.
Change Lesson Access Easily
Change access to lessons in a few clicks instead of editing every lesson individually.
Terms And Conditions For Teacher And Student Registration Process
Use different T&C forms for teachers and students.
And so much more...

Guru Is Integrated With JomSocial
With JomSocial, your students can interact with each other and with their
teachers. Read more about it here.
We'll keep working on the teacher interface to make it even better, right now there's no commissions system for your teachers in place. Of course with the improvements to orders reporting you can exactly know how much a teacher earned. But we want to make it not only better but great That is our main next focus.
And After That?
We'll soon start working on SCORM and Quiz improvements.
Our goal is to make Guru the best LMS available! Thank you for supporting us on this journey. Stay tuned!
