  1. Hi Antonio-

    Appreciate the nice summary you provided for LearnDash. I strongly believe that WordPress is an ideal tool for creating dynamic online course experiences. What used to require tens of thousands of dollars to create can now be accomplished using just a few plugins and a well-coded theme.

    As I often say though, the tools are only a small part of the successful online course equation. In the end people will take a course (and recommend it to others) because of the course content. Content is (still) king. 🙂

    Kindly,
    Justin
