This is a review of eLumine, an e-learning theme that will help you create a wonderful e-learning portal quite easily.
The search for the right e-learning theme
When you set up a website or an eCommerce store, selecting the right theme for it is definitely one of the first things to do. A theme should align with the products you are selling and should successfully present your store’s mission and vision. However robust and useful your products are, a messy theme has the potential of bringing your store down at any moment.
Likewise, an elegant, user-friendly theme can do wonders for the incoming traffic to your store.
There are a number of beautifully designed and highly customizable themes available for WordPress. But, sometimes, in order to reduce the time spent in designing and organizing the theme, you may need to customize a theme specifically for your store.
Now, let’s see what to do when you want to set up an e-learning site. You can do that in WordPress itself, but with a lot of customization work.
Then, when you come across WooCommerce, the most popular eCommerce platform for WordPress, your work becomes much easier. That’s because, with WooCommerce you can easily create Virtual Products, which can be your course materials. But, converting your store into a proper classroom is still a far cry.
That’s when LearnDash comes to your rescue! Though, unlike WooCommerce, it is not free. LearnDash can turn your website into an e-learning platform with just a few clicks. And with a theme that is specifically meant for it, you can create the virtual classroom you had dreamed of!
