Guru 5 Sneak Peek

Guru 5 Sneak Peek


Guru 5, our Joomla LMS,  is right around the corner. You’re going to love it! We know you’ve been waiting a while for this release but when you see what we’ve packed in, you’ll wonder how we managed to do it all so fast. (Late nights and lots of coffee mostly.) This is a sneak peek at what you can expect to see. The plan is to release Guru 5 in early April. When it comes out, I’ll talk you through the details.

Look And Feel

Categories And Courses

We’ve completely revamped the look and feel of course categories, lists of courses and course pages. They look so much better! guru5

Great-Looking Quizzes!

We figured that quizzes shouldn’t be mean and scary, so we gave them a major makeover too. Check it out… quiz

Beautiful Lessons

Lessons now open in an elegant window that’s easy to use. The list of lessons and the module are on the right, and students can move easily between lessons, make comments and see the lesson description. lesson

Adding Media

Adding and editing media design always did need some love. They got it!

Better Usability

We put a lot of work into improving the usability of Guru 5. We really wanted to raise your conversion rate and bottom line by making Guru easier for users... and you should find that your life as admin has got a lot easier too! On the front end, we’ve put a call to action button on cover photos and we allow newly registered members to continue the purchase process. Free courses have a more accurate message, lessons have descriptions and quizzes now allow for retakes right from My Quizzes page. On the back end, you can now remove a student from a course, and we’ve added “save and new” button when creating lessons.

Categories Module

The Categories module now shows an icon of your choice for each category. It looks great.

Improved Teacher Interface

The teacher interface now looks and works much more smoothly. A new menu item even allows teachers to view, rate and comment on essay answers. Very useful! teacher

New Shopping Cart Design

We've completely re-designed the shopping cart, here's how it looks like: cart

When Will Guru 5 Be Released?

We aim to release Guru in April 2016. We still have to finish a few details so we don’t have an exact date yet, but it won’t be long now!
