LearnDash Elementor Integration
Over the past few months we have teamed-up Elementor to create an integration that allows for greater course customization.
With this collaboration, we are expanding your ability to create a more cohesive look for your website than was possible before.
In a nutshell: LearnDash design elements that were previously difficult or impossible to customize can now be easily edited to match your brand with Elementor, including color scheme and font choices!
Having elements on the site that are visually different from the rest of the theme can give sites a less polished finish. Ideally, your users shouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the plugin and the rest of the site. This integration makes that a possibility.
Getting started with the Elementor integration for LearnDash.
The new set of LearnDash widgets allows users to insert editable design elements and functions anywhere on their websites. These widgets are available in Elementor’s design panel, where they are easy to insert onto any page of your website.

LearnDash and Elementor offer users more control over their site and their e-learning content.
We have always maintained that one of the primary reasons to choose LearnDash over other options is because it puts power in the hands of educators. Signing up to a hosted learning platform limits how educators can sell their content, often taking a cut of the profits in the process.
WordPress keeps control in the hands of creators, but the extent to which users can take advantage of the added power and flexibility is often limited by their skills.
When it comes to building a website, users often find themselves locked in to restrictive themes that keep them from creating the design they want.
If LearnDash frees educators from restrictive hosted solutions, Elementor breaks the mold of rigid and limiting theme designs, both by making it easier for users to build a website visually from scratch, and by enabling them to edit the themes they’re already using.
Over the past months it has been a pleasure to work have worked hand-in-hand with the Elementor team to bring you this tighter integration. Your courses will benefit, and so too will your learners. We look forward to seeing what you create with it!
