“The team has been incredibly helpful and accessible with all my inquiries. I’ve really appreciated the responsiveness of their support team.

There are a few features I’m still anxiously anticipating in future releases, but overall, my experience with LifterLMS has been fantastic.

I’m looking forward to working with them for the foreseeable future.”

“I could not be happier with LifterLMS. The plugin is intuitive to use and very flexible. The team at LifterLMS is constantly innovating and upgrading the plugin, and the support is very responsive. Considering that the base plugin is free, that’s amazing. Best of all – I love that the mission of LifterLMS is focused on the small or solo business person. I feel very cared for and about.”

“I’ve tried dozens of LMS plugins; everything other than LifterLMS suffers from either prohibitive student user-unfriendliness or clunky course-creation processes in the admin.

LifterLMS doesn’t have bloat, or awkwardness, or a ‘weird’ UI. There are some features I’d like to see added, such as more question-type options, but I can honestly say, in the only perspective that really matters… ‘will people actually be able to use it’… LifterLMS gets my top recommendation in the space.”

“LifterLMS has a clean, intuitive interface that was easy to set up. I host my Twitter Class on it, and it was much easier putting it together than working with other eLearning software, and I love that I have it on my already existing site. Chris also has a blog, YouTube channel, and Facebook group that I follow closely so I can get the most use out of the plugin. I give them an A+ on ease of use and A++ on service.”

“WP101 serves more than 25,000 members, so it’s no small challenge to migrate to a new membership plugin. Thankfully, we benefited from the trusted advice of our good friend and long-time coach, Chris Lema. Together, we spent more than a year carefully evaluating the many options available today.

So we were absolutely thrilled to have finally discovered LifterLMS, a powerful (and free) learning management plugin for WordPress. Not only was it the first plugin that checked all the boxes for our needs, but it also quickly became apparent that the creators truly share our passion for online education.

In particular, we really resonated with their focus on restoring human interaction to online learning, something that is conspicuously absent from most online courses today.”

“We’re so far very happy with LifterLMS, being the coders that we are ourselves we did make some changes that we contributed back, and the LifterLMS team was quick to approve and merge those. Open source as open source should be, we love it!”

“We love to work with LifterLMS. It is easy to use, as well for the course creator as the end user. LifterLMS made creating courses online a pleasure.”

“I have been thinking about offering classes online for years. I bought a LMS system about a year ago, never did anything with it and needed to make an annual payment. I decided to see what was out there. I found LifterLMS and after creating a simple outline and filling in the items in the outline with a WordPress post, I had a working course. Just like that!

I was experimenting with a weekly live webinar and impulsively announced that I was creating a course. In days I had my 15 test subjects. I had so much interest I offered a pre-registration at a reduced price. I officially had a 5-figure launch, just barely 5-figures, but 5-figures! Today I am filming video and polishing the course for release in the fall.

Thank you LifterLMS for making it simple and familiar. If you can create a WordPress post, you can create an online course.”
