Course Builder is an advanced theme for creating courses and online exams. Build custom pages, publish courses, and build an engaged audience of students with this WP theme.
The style found in Course Builder is simple but modern and attractive. It makes great use of both text and media to create some nice templates and there are some creative layouts as well.
Browsing through the demo, you’ll see that Course Builder can be used to build an entire business around education materials. You can give away your content with a free membership or charge per course. In fact, you can even charge for a membership and give students access to all premium content on the site.
This theme is hugely flexible too. It integrates with the LearnPress plugin for building courses which is made by the same developers who make this theme. In addition, you get nearly $500 of premium LearnPress extensions for free when you buy Course Builder. Add in customization features like the drag-and-drop page builder and this exam theme is a great value.
The Univero theme is a full-featured course management theme. It’s got a bright and inviting style that will get prospective students excited about taking your exams.
One advantage to this WP theme is that the learning management system is built-in, so you don’t need to purchase a separate plugin. You can be sure that all of the course features are tightly integrated with Univero since they are included in the theme itself.
While you don’t need to use any additional plugins to effectively use Univero, it does come bundled with a couple. For instance, it includes the Visual Composer plugin which lets you build custom page templates simply by dragging-and-dropping content blocks into place. It also includes Slider Revolution for creating responsive and animated sliders. The admin panel has loads of customization settings as well which make Univero a very flexible theme.
University has seven demo sites, so make sure to check out a few to get a good feel for the design. While the layouts change dramatically, the overall aesthetic is consistent, so the screenshot above is a good representation of how this theme looks.
This testing theme has a more professional and clean look. As the name implies, it will work well for an educational institution or an organization that desires to create that impression with its brand. All of the text is clear and easy to right and there’s plenty of white space to make each page feel comfortable to browse.
To use University to create online tests, you’ll need the LearnDash plugin as well. University is made to integrate with this plugin so it will be the best choice for adding this functionality. It also works well with bbPress which is the #1 WordPress plugin for creating forums. That will allow you to nurture an active community alongside your exams.
If you want to sell online courses and tickets to in-person events, Polytechnic will be an excellent theme for your website.
Right away you can tell from the design that this online exam theme is excellent for promoting a lot of content. It likely won’t be a great fit for an individual webmaster but would suit a team of content creators quite well. With the “faculty” user role included, it’s easy to use Polytechnic to create a platform for teachers to create courses and work with members.
This awesome theme works with the Sensei plugin for creating online courses. Sensei has been around for years and is developed by the same team that makes WooCommerce, the most popular eCommerce solution for WordPress.
Course Builder gets my top recommendation because of its well-thought-out features and beautiful design. It integrates with LearnPress perfectly because it’s made by the same developers – you can’t beat that!
Univero is another excellent choice and comes with a similar feature set to Course Builder. The exam and course features are built right into this theme so you won’t need an additional plugin.
University has a more professional and sophisticated design, but it does require the use of an expensive plugin in order to create and sell courses. That said, the plugin it integrates with is a very popular and user-friendly learning management system.
Lastly, Polytechnic will be best for frequent content publishers and organizations looking to sell tickets to live events in addition to online exams.
