Create powerful cohort-based online courses in LearnDash.
Motivate your learners and increase the impact of your training with the scheduled unlocking of lessons and notification emails.
Cohort Manager for LearnDash makes it easy create and manage cohort-based courses for groups of learners – all from one single screen.
In self-paced online courses, learners can often lose motivation and struggle to complete their courses.
Cohort-based courses – where learners learn together and at the same time – are a powerful format course creators can use to maximise the impact of their training.
Cohort Manager for LearnDash gives you the tools you need to manage a group through a scheduled course by unlocking lessons and sending nudge emails.

What does the Schedule Lessons by Group plugin allow you to do?
If you want to create a course where each lesson is made available to a group of learners at the same time, then Cohort Manager gives you a simple way to create and manage a ‘workflow’. A workflow is simply a series of scheduled lessons and emails (what we call more generally as ‘interactions’).
Unlike other plugins, you can create workflows from the same screen in LearnDash – without having to edit this in each lesson.
It also allows you to schedule notification emails to prompt your learners to log back into your LearnDash and complete their next lesson.
Why should I schedule lessons and not just make them all available at the start?
Can I already drip lessons in LearnDash without this plugin?
Yes, but this has some significant limitations. Dripped lessons in LearnDash can only be managed for all course content and not on a group level. This means that all learners will have lessons opened to them on the set date, irrespective of when they were enrolled on the course. This is not suitable where you have groups of learners.
