Masteryio – a WordPress LMS Plugin

In our analysis of WordPress Learning Management Systems (LMS), we cared about the free (basic) versions. Masteryio is such a WordPress Plugin. Additionally, there exists a paid version with enhanced features. Nevertheless, almost all the necessary features are available in the free version. The project team analyzed the LMS from the point of view of a small Adult Education Organisation. Normally, these types of organisations neither do have the big budget to buy a commercial LMS nor have the technicians to implement and maintain such a system.

We want to share some pros and cons in context with Masteryio.


  • Installing is done easily
  • An assistant called Builder supplies the course creation
  • The LMS enables free courses (without login into the platform) as well as paid courses
  • The course overview in the builder is well-done.
  • Images are kept in the media database of the WordPress installation.


  • The insert fields of questions (and answers) are too tiny.
  • Multimedia is not supported in questions. This is a major deficit since modern teaching and training uses intensively multimedia-based content.
  • There are only three question formats available in the free version (yes/no, single choice, and multiple choice).
