    Hi Ariel, good to see someone else with the same understanding of the issue, it seems like such standard functionality to me as well.
    Unless we are completely misunderstanding the functionality, I find his attitude towards this issue surprising.

    As far as I can see the assignments and the bibliography are the only parts not performing well at the moment.

    TEMP SOLUTION– Successfully implemented Visual Form Builder to overcome the issue, I placed the forms on the assignment’s page, without creating a quiz – so the assignments are easy to adjust when free-entry becomes an option within courseware
    The form sends a email to the teacher and a copy to the student, by the teacher

    One other thing I find a bit strange is that the student is not allowed to change an answer after it is given which should be considered an option for paragraph entries, before finalizing or committing the result

    Kind regards

    Antonio – It sounds to me like you do not realize that courseware can be found under groups

    I belief what you are looking for is called “responses” and “gradebook”, which you find when you go to “assignments” open an assignment. and there you can find the responses and gradebook buttons, make sure you are logged in as a teacher. Hope this has answered your question

    by the way, for future reference, it is best to make one topic of each independent issue. cheers

    also the handbook, it seems that they are working on it, it is indeed not on github, I can only assume a new one for the launch of v1.0 is on its way, most the info is self explanatory or in the video

    the two things are unrelated, I don’t have the new assignment buttons, not sure why not I would like to know this also i do have the latests versions.

    as for the error message error message “BuddyPress Courseware Error! Cheatin’ Uh?” appears.
    I did have this also and I fixed it, I am not sure to remember how I fixed it. I think I rushed in with not having buddypress set up correctly, after i followed it step by step and making sure all permission where also correct. and also using the default buddypress / courseware template

    did you create the htaccess file with the following?

    # BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    hope this is it, I did find the solution by doing everything according to the buddypress setup, and the courseware video, let me know if this has helped, else I can look at my settings and files for you,

    that is strange, it doesn’t do that at mine, can you describe exactly when this happens in steps, when it does and doesn’t happen, are you getting the error as a teacher or as a student?
    which theme you have running also, and browser, I skip the due date myself so i don’t use it, but i can test if I get the same issue.

    Fantastic Patrick, glad to have been of help, by the way nice site, look forward to learn how to finally get some rock hard abs:) please post any findings on how to solve the template issue back into this forum. cheers Byron

    Great, just remember that links to the actual breaking page and any further descriptions will help. the guys from courseware will most likely be able to give little support on failures with custome templates, they are trying to work on getting courseware up to version 1. I’ll contact you on through your site to pass on some suggestions on php people I know

    I would first try and see if I could make any sense of what happens in the PHP files, see what causes the error, file a topic on the findings, also see if you can find any similar topics that have been listed.
    Stas will most likely point you in the right direction, when you ask the right question, there are a few other forums on templates breaking, you can always make the basic template look the same through creating a buddypress child theme, which is well documented. if php or web development are not your skills it will pay to hire someone to help out. hope this helps, gotta go kids are calling

    have you tried it in the default template first?

    It should be pretty straight forward, if your user has “TEACHER” rights, you go to groups and create a group, courseware’s courses run within groups.
    – I think it might be confusing since they call it “CLASS” in the video, but I think it i just the same as groups, a group will have the courseware tab inside of it?

    Hi Stas Thanks for your time, It is not a bigg issue and I understand it must be hard to cater for all request.

    I have to stick with the opinion that what we need is in quiz style, I could solve it by getting the student to create responders I guess. or if I had save-able text fields, , which is the quiz.

    Text fields and paragraph answers having to be exact makes those pretty difficult, one wrong word and your answer is graded wrong.

    I’ll explain the quiz, this is our flow –
    1. what is the right answer
    a – wrong
    b – right
    c – wrong
    2. what is the most common cause to you
    – (paragraph) any answer is correct because it is individual and filling this in should add to process
    3. checklist etc

    If it is not an option than no problem, I’ll just use blank after question mark and let the teacher grade or change php on paragraphs,
    Thanks very much for your time

    to add to that I would still like to mark “any textual answer” as correct to add to the progress bar, (the course we are building is personal development / self help therefor any answer is correct in some instances.

    Hi Stas,
    how this works is that in the quiz we are asking for a global understanding of the material, any answer is correct because the answer in the paragraph is about their beliefs and can be anything, it doesn’t have to be exact – thanks chaoti for the alternative

    We are implementing courseware here
    courseware courses can always be found under the GROUPS tab in a buddypress installation.

    We are very happy with the results and the options. and are currently half way through developing course 1 with the standard courseware functionality I DID NOT HAVE TO CHANGE or ADD A SINGLE LINE OF PHP

    You will have to sign up as a member and I have to give you access before you can see the site, I have had a lot of spam member sign ups and installed SI-Captcha to stop spambots from signing up it works well I use it in conjunction with the AKSIMET plugin
