One of the biggest benefits of our Business and Commerce plans is that you can add additional WordPress plugins to enhance the functionality of your website.
Below, we’re highlighting two of the newest additions to our plugin marketplace, now available at a hefty exclusive discount for WordPress.com users.
Create courses with Sensei Pro
Automattic, the same company behind WordPress.com, creates Sensei LMS. We’ve collaborated to bring our Learning Management System and course creation tools to WordPress.com sites in one seamless experience.
With Sensei Pro, you can create online courses with quizzes, certificates, cohorts, and detailed student reports. Lessons are edited just like WordPress posts or pages, so you will already know how it works.
You can enable the distraction-free Learning Mode to provide students with an optimized mobile-friendly learning environment that keeps your course content front and center.
Sell courses with WooCommerce integration
Selling courses can be a lucrative way to generate revenue for your blog or business. Sensei LMS integrates deeply with our WooCommerce suite of tools to make selling access to a course a breeze.
You can also take advantage of WooCommerce extensions to handle coupons, memberships, subscriptions, and more.

Publish interactive and private videos
Videos are often a big part of online courses. WordPress.com sites also come with our VideoPress service, which lets you upload videos directly to your site without dealing with a third-party tool or embed codes. Especially important for video courses, you can mark a video as “private” to ensure it won’t be downloaded or linked to, and will only be available to course students.
Even better, with Sensei’s Interactive Videos block, you can create pause points with additional content to any video. For example:
- Add a quiz question in the middle of a course video.
- Add a contact form to the end of a sales video.
- Show links to additional resources to a blog post video.
Add Interactive Videos to any WordPress page or post. They are not limited to courses or lessons.

Engage with interactive blocks
In addition to the Interactive Videos, Sensei also comes with interactive and educational content blocks, including:
- Quiz questions
- Image hotspots
- Task lists
Using these blocks, you can craft compelling content that captivates and keeps your readers engaged. Whether writing an educational blog post or creating a sales landing page, you can add these blocks to any WordPress page or post.
