Are any of these functions possible in CoursePress Pro

Is it possible to:
- have the text to the right or left of a video in a unit. It would make it easier to see both a the same time.
- make it possible for the course participants to leave a unit-specific comment that can only be seen by the course instructor, e.g. a question regarding that specific unit, that the instructor then can easily reply
- as an instructor of a course to easily access a report on how every participant in that course is progressing

Thanks very much

    Hi Thomas,

    Hope you're well?

    #1 Yes, most likely this could be done with CSS, i'd need to see the video/unit to be able to give you the CSS though for your site.

    #2 Comments aren't possible, but there's a discussions option you can enable where students can post discussions about the course.

    #3 Go to the reports page in admin for the reports for each student.

    Dashboard > coursepress >reports

    Hope this helps

    Hi thanks for your reply
    So if I understand you correctly, it is not possible, even with the addition of any of your plugins:
    - for a participants to contact the instructor privately with a question
    - sort the participants by course
    - sort the reports by course
    - as an instructor, to have one easy overview of how many of the participants have finished one specific course

    I seems a little uneasy, by the way, as an instructor, to see in your instructors menu, that people have made comments or started a discussion. But you have to go to each exact unit and page to answer, instead of being able to answer it all from the same instructors manu....am I mistaken about this.

    Thanks again
    Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    Apologies on the delay.

    - sort the reports by course

    This is possible from the reports page in wp-admin.

    Dashboard > coursepress > reports

    You can see a filter at the top which lists all courses, selecting a course willfilter the list to only display reports from the selected course.

    - sort the participants by course

    Not quite sorting,but if you visit the manage course page from the front-end Coursepress dashboard as an instructor, you will then be able toview the students for that course.

    Then select students tab to view students for that course.

    - for a participants to contact the instructor privately with a question

    It's possible to do this by using the Private messaging plugin, this would then allow students to contact the instructor.

    Regarding your other feedback, I will certainly pass this along to the relevant developers to consider looking at improving usability.

    Hope this helps
