The Guru-JomSocial Integration Is Here!

Whether you have an online community and want to start selling online courses or have an online training website and want to add a social spark, this integration is for you!

We’ve brought together two natural partners: Guru’s learning platform and JomSocial’s community features. It’s a perfect match. And it’s the start of a beautiful new future for all iJoomla products.

Combine Guru with JomSocial and you get a whole new learning and community experience!

Online training becomes social. Course enrolment is shared with friends. Earning a certificate brings heaps of congratulations. Students get to share news of their studies, and schools get to show their courses to the friends and colleagues of their students.

Four Great Plugins

Guru’s integration brings four fantastic new plugins to JomSocial:

  • Guru Courses I Teach
  • Guru Courses I Take
  • Guru My Certificates
  • Guru Student Activity

You can see all of those plugins highlighted on a sample JomSocial profile on the right.

Guru Courses I Teach

This plugin is shown on the JomSocial profile of a Guru teacher. It displays the list of courses taught, complete with titles, thumbnails, a description and the number of students enrolled in each course.

Administrators can control all of the elements on the back end, including:

  • The plugin title.
  • The length of the course title.
  • Number of courses shown.
  • A course thumbnail and its size.
  • Number of students
  • Course description and its length.

The changes are global and are only available to administrators.

Guru Courses I Take

This plug in is shown on the JomSocial profile of a Guru Student and displays a list of the student’s courses.

Like the Guru Courses I Teach plugin, the front end is fully customizable.

Guru My Certificates

JomSocial’s profiles can now show certificates earned by students of Guru.

Students who have finished a course and won a certificate can share their success with their friends.

Again, administrators can customize the Guru My Certificates plugin on Joomla’s back end.

Guru Student Activity

The Guru Student Activity plugin is really cool. It integrates into the JomSocial Activity Stream and displays posts when students:

  • enroll in a course;
  • receive a certificate;
  • complete a course;
  • pass a quiz;
  • pass a final exam.

You can see how those posts appear on the right. It’s a great way for students to show friends how they’re progressing and to win their support.

Administrators can, of course, decide which notifications to show in the backend.

This Is Just The Beginning…

This integration is the future that we’re planning for all iJoomla’s products but first we want to make Guru and JomSocial even more awesome together.

Next, we'll be adding integration between JomSocial MultiProfiles and Guru's Teacher and Student profiles. We also plan to put notifications on the JomSocial toolbar to community members whose friends have passed a test, received a certificate, and more.
