Before starting work, we conducted our meticulous research and tried several LMS plugins for Wordpress. Completing this, we decided to choose the Learndash LMS plugin as the most flexible and developed option to go with.
It occurred that despite its literally enormous capabilities, there were still many aspects missing in management of the administrative part of it, and many functional options to be missed while using the available Learndash LMS tools. Therefore, we began to study it "from the inside" and thoroughly finalized in the process of developing an online platform.

The layout was carefully thought out for the most convenient and comfortable work with the platform on any device, be it a computer, tablet or smartphone. Particular emphasis was placed on the mobile version since the target audience is students who use mobile devices to a greater extent. That is why the functionality of the mobile version is not inferior to the desktop version.
