Guru 5 Stable Version Is Here!

Great news! We just released a stable version of Guru 5, our Joomla LMS! After one beta version and 3 RC's, we feel that it's finally ready for prime time. A big thank you for those who submitted bug reports!

So what's new in Guru 5?

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!

Great-Looking Quizzes!

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

Guru 5 Quiz with Media

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.

Adding Media

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

Adding media now looks a lot better!

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!

A BIG Call To Action

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.

Removing Students from a Course

On the back end, you can now remove a student from a course, and we’ve added “save and new” button when creating lessons.
