Adding a "mark completed" check box/button to each lesson video.

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.bassfreedom.com

Hi there! I run a subscription website for bass guitar lessons. Within my site, I have loads of lessons and courses. Does anyone know how I get my logged in members a way to keep track of the lessons they watch/complete? I've seen other sites that have a "mark lesson complete" button (example attached) which is what I'm looking for! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Unfortunately, this isn't possible with Squarespace. Perhaps you can submit a feature request to customer support and it may come through in a few months or so, but it currently isn't an option.

Potentially, you could pay to get this functionality developed custom for your website but it wouldn't be cheap I'm afraid.

Thanks I will submit a request ASAP.

 

Just curious, what price would it cost to have this functionality developed if you had to guess? 

 

Thanks so much! 

Hi,

did you figure this out? My members are begging for this feature, since they have over 200 classes to do. I am also submitting a request to customer support now!

TIA for your answer!

Hi Andrew.

It's possible to add progress indicators on a number of dedicated elearning platforms, but Squarespace doesn't have anything like this - and currently they have no published plans to add them so I don't expect anything to change in the short to medium term.

Do you have any details of how your customers use your service? For example, do you know how many of them always use the same device to access the classes?

I ask because it may be possible to build an addon that tracks their progress in the browser, but if they use different devices (for example, sometimes their tablet and sometimes their phone) this wouldn't meet their needs because they wouldn't be synchronised.

I'll be interested in your thoughts.

Hey Paul!

 

My customers are mainly using my website to learn on their computers. But I do know a few who also use mobile on the go. 

I wonder if it could work if I implemented this idea and used a disclaimer that progress is only tracked if you are on my site from a browser?

Thoughts?

Thanks!!

Not speaking for @paul2009 but that technique is widely used on sites that need to track progress but don't use an account login system.

The key to the disclaimer is to say something like progress is tracked per device.

So they can use a mobile device if they want but will need to complete the entire task on that device to track progress.
