xAPI / Tin Can Integration in WatuPRO

From version 5.4.6 WatuPRO has integration to Tin Can / Experience API that allows you to send statements to a learning record store when user passes or fails a test.

To use the integration you need to install the free WP Experience API plugin and follow the same process explained in our Namaste! LMS integration.

The only difference is that the xAPI / Tin Can menu in WatuPRO currently has less options:

That’s it!

WatuPRO Integration With MoolaMojo

From version 5.4.4.5 the quiz plugin WatuPRO has built-in integration with MoolaMojo. The integration has two main aspects:

  1. You can reward virtual credits for completing tests.
  2. You can charge virtual credits for access to paid tests (this option requires WatuPRO Intelligence module).

Let’s elaborate on both:

Reward MoolaMojo Credits for Completing WatuPRO Tests

To enable this option select the following checkbox on the WatuPRO Settings page:

The setting alone will only allow you to configure per-quiz behavior. To do it, go to the Add/Edit Quiz page, Other Advanced Settings tab and enable the setting:

When you check the checkbox the two options will appear. The first will directly transfer the amount of points the quiz taker has collected into their virtual credits balance.

If you select the second option and save the quiz, you will get a box on the Grades page (one for each grade/result)  to enter fixed amount of credits to be given depending on the grade. Note that you can enter negative numbers, i.e. you can charge the user for achieving a bad grade.

Some Basics of Successful Email Delivery

While this post is mostly pointed to customers of Arigato PRO, it can be used as guide for everyone who has problems with delivery rates of their outgoing newsletters and auto-responder emails.

Here are two very important steps to take that will greatly improve the delivery of your emails:

Use SMTP. PHP mail works… sometimes. It sends emails but doesn’t construct the envelope too well and generally isn’t too reliable. Setting up SMTP is really easy and takes few minutes. Every paid hosting service provides email accounts with SMTP access. Ask your provider if you are not sure about this. If you are not happy with their quality and delivery rates you can use affordable services like Amazon SES, smtp.com, SendGrid etc. Heck, you can even use Gmail as free SMTP service.

Arigato customers and everyone who sends from WordPress can install some of the free plugins like Postman SMTP, WP Mail SMTP etc. Arigato will automatically send through them.

Please do use SMTP, it greatly improves delivery.

Use sender address from your domain name. For example if I send you newsletter from this site, it will be sent from someone@calendarscripts.info. If I use domain name different than calendarscripts.info this will reduce my success a lot. Many email servers will block the incoming email due to domain mismatch. In many other cases the email will end up in the spam box.

If you are using SMTP account from other domain (like Amazon SES, or Gmail) your sender’s address must be the same as the SMTP account. So if you are sending from SMTP someone@gmail.com, use the same as sender address.
