Apart from learning management system, WordPress course is also a hot Google searching term. Therefore, today I would like to pick up a WordPress course theme for the review. Invent by LiveMesh is one of the best templates. Let discover this theme to see how great it is.
Invent – Education Course College WordPress Theme
Invent is an education WordPress theme which is perfectly built for schools, colleges and universities. The course part in Invent is clearly separated into 2 purposes. For normal college and university, courses are custom post types therefore it is very easy for you to add new courses. In the meanwhile, if you want to operate an LMS or sell courses, this education WordPress theme is completely compatible with LearnDash – the most powerful WordPress LMS plugin with very awesome features such as: 8 question types, oustanding quiz options, ProPanel, Tin-Can API, plenty of extensions, multi language support…However, LearnDash is not included in the package, you will need an additional purchase.
Visual Composer page builder is preference of normal WordPress theme developers because it helps users build any content or page just by a drag & drop. Thinking differently with other people, LiveMesh did not include Visual Composer in the Invent theme because they assumed that it is hardly useful beyond the home page and they do not just want to improve sale amount by giving a false impression everything can be accomplished without coding. In stead of that, this WordPress university theme comes with a wide range of shortcodes and large number of custom post types to ensure a great extent but basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is always assumed. From here, video, parallax background, buttons, tabs, carousels, sliders, blog posts, porfolio, galery, contact form, socials, icons, columns, quotes…can be quickly built. In the version 3.0, the powerful SiteOrigin page builder has been intergrated in Invent to make users life easier. Furthermore, Invent supports a bundle of 30+ custom page builder elements and 16 more premium widgets with its numerous variations/styles. Therefore, constructing a website for school, college or university is never easier. Besides, SiteOrigin plugin is also very lightweight to optimize the speed of your website and we all know that Google search engines appreciate speedy websites.
It is a mistake if I do not mention about the design of this college university WordPress theme. It is really unique, modern, elegant that you can not mix with any other themes. According to description from the author: “The theme support for large twelve column 1180px grid, wide backgrounds that span entire browser width, premium shortcode builder, trendy mobile menu, easy to use YouTube/HTML5 video sections/backgrounds, smooth scrolling parallax backgrounds/headers, animations, statistics, Revolution Slider, bold typography, unlimited colors, unlimited page/post header styling etc.” More than that, Flex 2 Slider and Nivo Slider are also included in the theme to be alternative responsive options for users to use on the homepage. You also can insert Flex Slider in any page or post with the slider shortcode provided. In order to ensure great look on Retina devices and help users have more typography options on heading, body or text logo…, the Invent theme intergrates with 1500+ Retina Icons and 500+ Google Fonts.
Create a funny learning environment is an important duty of the website for school, college and university, Invent is compatible with BuddyPress plugin to create social community. From here, learners can give discussion, exchange information…Besides, to help users get in touch with you easily, the theme has been tested with Contact Form 7 plugin. All elements have been styled to make sure that the forms will go smoothly and be embedded seamlessly in the theme.
