Over 400 million people view more than 20 billion pages each month on WordPress. So it’s only natural that course creators might want to combine WordPress with LearnWorlds.

But how will students sign up if you’re using both LearnWorlds and WordPress? In this guide, we’ll talk about how you can create a positive user experience with a single-sign-on plugin. 


Benefits of Connecting WordPress and LearnWorlds

The reason why users connect WordPress and LearnWorlds is because of the WordPress SSO plugin. This plugin improves the user experience by eliminating the need to create new accounts or re-enter e-mail and password credentials in LearnWorlds and WordPress.  

So, every time a student updates their credentials in WordPress, the plugin updates the information in the LearnWorlds database. This functionality ensures that your students can change their credentials without editing their details on both platforms. 

The SSO plugin also supports WooCommerce, which is a popular e-commerce plugin used on WordPress. You can sell your courses through WooCommerce, and LearnWorlds will take care of the course delivery. 

This SSO plugin is perfect for course creators who’ve built part of their online business with WordPress and would like to use LearnWorlds too.

Thanks to the SSO system, this combination means you don’t have to create an entirely new platform on LearnWorlds because you can use both sites for your business. 

What is a Single-Sign-On System?

SSO (Single-Sign-On) is an authentication method that lets people use one password and e-mail address to sign into multiple platforms. Login systems on various platforms are connected to enter one set of credentials to access them all. 

Without an SSO system, you’ll need a professional developer to link both WordPress and LearnWorlds sign-in systems. But with this SSO system, you don’t need to be tech-savvy or hire a professional to connect the two platforms. 

Simply install and configure the plugin, and your students can sign into both platforms without needing two sets of credentials.

How to Integrate WordPress SSO Plugin with your LearnWorlds School

  • To activate the WordPress plugin click on Plugins->Installed Plugins->Activate.
  • Before you can integrate your plugin, you’ll need to contact LearnWorlds’ Customer Success team. The team will send you the credentials you need to configure your school with the Single-Sign-On system.

By following these steps, you’ll have successfully configured your LearnWorlds for SSO and integrated the WordPress plugin.
