The pandemic 2019 has made remote education aka online learning popular. Even after the pandemic ends, the education institutes may not give the practice of online education. Currently, most of the institutes organize online classes with the help of Zoom, Google Meet, etc. The classes last for half an hour. Frankly speaking, it impossible to learn a concept within half an hour. Because of some reason, teachers may/may not cover the topic in deep. Let’s consider an example of Java programming language. Java is a vast language. It’s impossible for a teacher to teach everything about Java within a year even if the teacher teaches 1/2 hours daily on weekdays. Students will have to take a course to understand the topic in detail. If you know this very well, you’re planning to build a course website with WordPress but you don’t know which online course WordPress theme you should choose, go through the following list of themes:
Best WordPress theme for online courses
Course Maker Pro
Course Maker Pro is the latest WordPress theme for online courses. It supports the world’s most popular learning management system plugins – Lifter LMS and LearnDash. It also supports MemberPress – a must have plugin for membership sites. Course Maker Pro can automatically install the plugins required to create a functional course site. It has a brilliant home page design which has been designed to make people engage with your courses. Course Maker Pro can show different menus to the logged in users and visitors that aren’t logged in. It is powered by StudioPress Genesis Framework.

Eduma is the most sold education theme on ThemeForest. If you love playing around with Elementor or WP Bakery, you’ll love Eduma as this template supports these two page builders. The online course WordPress theme ships with premium LearnPress add-ons such as Grade Book, Commission, Mycred, Sorting choice, etc. It features a drag and drop course builder, popup, and login form builder tool. It also includes an event management function. Eduma WordPress theme gives its users access to over 20 demos. You can import the demo with a click of a button. The theme lets users integrate zoom meeting with their sites.
Masterstudy is the 2nd most popular online course WordPress theme. Thanks to some VueJS development done to the theme, it’s great. Masterstudy lets users create and manage online quizzes, manage orders, etc. It allows admins to create students/teachers profile pages, checkout pages, etc, and add a course search function to their sites. Masterstudy comes with the Certificate builder tool. Once a student has completed a course, you can reward him/her with a certificate. For those who don’t know, certificates offered on completing of a course can help students or people get a job in some company if the institute or the person who is offering a course has good knowledge of the topic he/she is teaching via course. Masterstudy has an option to enable guest checkout. If the user likes your course but he/she doesn’t want to join your site as a member, you can use this feature. MasterStudy lets students submit their assignments created with MS Word, Excel, etc. It lets admins set the max supported file size.
With the Divi LMS layout pack and the Divi theme, users can create and sell courses online. Unlike the above two templates, Divi comes with its own page builder plugin – the Divi builder. You can create a nice-looking WordPress site from scratch using your creativity with the Divi builder plugin as the page builder lets you customize everything that is in front of you i.e font, background, foreground, padding, margin, etc. The Divi subscription plan also includes the feature-rich Bloom opt-in plugin and Monarch social sharing plugin. You won’t have to install plugins that add social sharing or email option forms to your site.
LMS WordPress theme
The LMS WP theme enables users to add Google Captcha to the forms. It supports 4 column layout for the course page. You can configure LMS to show a registration option to the users who try to access the course. LMS supports integration with Google Class and Zoom video conferencing services. It can show the option to see the posts in a grid or a list. It ships with 4 cool demos. LMS lets its users rate courses. On the basis of the rating, the theme can generate a list of popular courses. As in other online course WordPress themes, you can import and customize the demo.
The WordPress course theme I’ve shared above are not only beautiful but are also powerful. They support the most popular LMS plugins are compatible with many top-rated WP plugins.
