SP LMS Gets OpenStreetMap and a Couple of Joomla Templates Updated With New Stuff and Fixes

Hello to all online educators on Joomla! I hope you are doing great. We are updating our SP LMS component along with 2 popular Joomla templates in the LMS niche to make eLearning more fun and interesting to you and your learners.

Your favorite LMS component on Joomla will get OpenStreetMap, a couple of fixes, and updates. And, Language School and Varsita education Joomla template will get the latest SP LMS component, updated page builder, Joomla version, and more. We want you to spread education without any hassle. This is why we regularly update our SP LMS component and associated education Joomla template with it.

I am sure you will enjoy this update. Let’s know what new things are coming to these eLearning Joomla templates one by one.

SP LMS Brings OpenStreetMap and More

The latest update to the SP LMS component brings OpenStreetMap, fixes router issue for quizzes in course details, and solves the SP LMS profile plugin issue. Also, we have updated the language file for the course module so that you can enjoy a seamless translation feature.

Apart from these, we have also improved the teacher's contact form view, added the Instagram link to speakers’ and teachers’ profiles, and many more.

OpenStreetMap Integration

To make it easier to find event locations on your LMS site, we have already integrated Google Map before. Since the Google Map is paid, we are now offering a free map showcasing option with OpenStreetMap. You can still use Google Map. But if you want to have a location map free of cost, here comes OpenStreetMap integration with the SP LMS component. It's gonna be fantastic for you!

Just like Google Map location service, SP LMS now has the option to showcase OpenStreetMap to share your location. Now you can create a free editable map of the world with OpenStreetMap on SP LMS-powered websites.

How to Use OpenStreetMap

Go to the global configuration of SP LMS then enable Map. Select OpenStreetMap from the dropdown, then place the API key in the box below. There’s a link to the OpenStreetMap site to create an account and get the API key.

Let’s take a look at the full changelog of the SP LMS update:

Hello Joomshaper Team!
It's so amazing to see the new updates to SP LMS and Templates! During these COVID times it's very important to have such a "swiss knife" - universal learning component, and especially for online-learning. I'm pretty sure, millions of teachers and students, who practice distant learning, are happy to know that you continue to upgrade your product and make it ideal. Please, don't stop with what you already have achieved!
Please, take the big gratitude from all the educational community and the wishes of all the best!

How about an update where we can actual use SP page builder to create lessons!

We have a page builder but can’t use it.

Been waiting for this update for what seems like years.

Will this ever happen? Have mentioned this several times.
