The Most Flexible WordPress LMS for Your Online Learning Website
Save money and increase learner success from your customizable course or membership website that you own and control. All-in-one affordable LMS system to start, run, and grow your business.
Which One Are You?
The WordPress developers, designers & IT pros who build LMS websites and training portals for clients, employers & themselves
Do-it-yourself innovators who are looking to create high value online courses, coaching or training based membership websites
People who have outgrown a hosted platform or an incomplete WordPress stack looking for more power, control and better support
Package Your Course Your Way...
"I've used a number of course creation and delivery platforms over the years. And they were all fine… right up to the day when they weren't. The trouble is, they all want you to package and manage your course the way THEY think you should do it. THEIR feature set. THEIR way to do it.
Now I host all my courses on LifterLMS. TOTALLY different experience, because I'm free to do things MY way. I've never yet hit a wall where LifterLMS didn't enable me to do things the way I wanted.
Love it! Great support and community too."

What all LMS softwares should aspire to be!
July 2, 2018
As a former School Teacher, professional User Experience Designer, and current online course creator - I can honestly attribute much of our success to LifterLMS and it's consideration for multiple learning modalities, UI/UX out of the box, and natural student Engagement opportunities.
I only wish we started with it right from the start, instead of 5 months in on a massive redesign for the better! It's exceeded all my expectations, increased student engagement, lowered our refund rate, and is a breeze for our team to use.
In less than 10 months we've gone from $0 to $300K in revenue with LifterLMS playing a huge part in that!! I'm looking forward to everything that comes next from the creators of LifterLMS!!
The top choice LMS to build a multi-instructor educational platform like Udemy but on WordPress
September 25, 2020
As a non-technical founder, thanks to LifterLMS, I was able to launch a fully-featured and fully-customized multi-instructor educational platform in days.
Instead of spending 6-12 months finding a technical co-founder, trying to raise money, and building the software from scratch, we were able to focus right away on recruiting instructors, publishing quality courses, and platform marketing.
Thank you, LifterLMS team!

LifterLMS Customer Reviews
Easy to Use Awesome Course Plugin
April 2, 2017
A friend told me about LifterLMS as we were both using Teachable. Teachable is super easy to use if you don't know much about coding, etc. But, waiting for my money for what sometimes felt like forever just wasn't cutting it for me. I tested LifterLMS and spoke back and forth with support to get some questions answered. I was hooked. The courses are easy to set up and it works well with BeaverBuilder on WordPress. I purchased the ConvertKit extension and am super pleased with how everything integrates nicely. The team has been so helpful by answering questions quickly in their Facebook Group and have listened to user needs. They did a huge improvement recently and I loved all of the updates. I've had people ask me many times what I use and I am a proud affiliate now. It's definitely a better alternative to course development programs that make you wait nearly 45 days to get paid for what you're teaching. And your users never have to leave your site to take a course. You keep control.
Amazing Functionality for Academic Courses
February 3, 2019
Hands-down the best LMS for higher education I've used. We were using Moodle, and were looking to upgrade to something more modern for several years but nothing offered the same level of functionality. LifterLMS provides a student interface that works directly from our website (thus ensuring regular student interaction with the site itself and our social media), and provides easy access to course materials, timetables, assessments and assessment results. Together with Google for education, they make the perfect online experience for teachers and students alike. Well done! Plus, the technical support is very effective and efficient.
December 15, 2018
LifterLMS and its suite of premium add-ons have been invaluable to me in building my LMS website, and their staff have been unfailingly helpful and very capable in answering my questions and helping me to resolve any issues. It's an excellent choice for anyone who wants to build online learning content, and is very easy to use.
Get it all!
February 23, 2018
Hassle-free LMS with compatibility with popular themes and page builders. I also LOVE the drag/drop course builder - and above all it has a WooCommerce integration! All that comes with a friendly team and community around this plugin. Thank you guys and keep it up!
One Year and Big Impact
November 15, 2018
Using Lifter for over one year and I can say that all what they provided for all teaching communities is enormous. Hope they grow bigger and bigger to provide more features! Somehow this plugin changed my life because I made my dream come true and I can provide high quality content what is used by hundreds of students in my country.
Does it So Well
December 1, 2016

I chose LifterLMS because there are so many creative and engaging ways to make courses. And technical support has fast and very good service.
Best LMS so far
December 15, 2018
LifterLMS is one of the best LMSs I have seen so far. The newly improved Course Builder is dope - the easiest for non-techies.
Got to be the best LMS out there..
June 1, 2017
have got to say this has to be one of the best learning management systems out there..I have tried a few over the last 12 months looking for a way of replacing my external LMS.
This fits the bill 100% and with every update it get better and easier to use with more functions. The LifterLMS support team is fantastic if you ever get stuck with anything…
Has been great!
December 29, 2018
With over 2,000 students it still holds up great. Glad LifterLMS has a great team that helps with any issues you may have. They constantly update the platform and have great tutorials. Really happy with them overall.
