Increase the Perceived Value of Your Course With Fully Customizable Design Templates

No matter how you cut it, your students will judge the quality of your course on what they see BEFORE even getting into the actual content of your course.

Thrive Apprentice is the only LMS plugin for WordPress that gives you total design freedom over EVERY aspect of your online course.

Course Overview Pages That Will Help You Sell MORE Courses

Your course overview page or school homepage is one of the first pages visitors will see. Whether you’re linking to this page to sell courses or only show it to students, it’s one of the most important pages in the student experience.

With Thrive Apprentice, this page is endlessly customizable with the Thrive Visual Editor.

Fully Customizable Course List Layout

Choose from a ton of different designs to list your course and customize every single detail. Grid view, Masonry or List view?

The sky's the limit!

Add Any Element to Your Course Overview

Because you have total design freedom over your school homepage you can add ANY call to action on there.

Filter and Add Multiple Course List Elements

The course list element has powerful filters that allow you to show or hide any of your courses. You can even have several course lists on one page to split your courses by difficulty, category and more.

Custom Header

The course home page (and every other page in your course) can have a dedicated header which allows for an excellent user experience for your students.

Course Lesson and Modules Only Containing What You Want

Thrive Apprentice comes with tons of pre-designed templates for your lesson, course overview and module pages.

You can customize every detail to fit your needs. With or without sidebar, collapsible sidebar of fixed sidebar, full screen video or split screen layout. Really anything, if you can imagine it, you can create it.

Fully Customizable Sidebar

Hide or show, left or right, collapsible or not. Any sidebar configuration is possible within Thrive Apprentice

Any Content Layout

Your content is unique. So it deserves a unique layout to fit your needs. With featured image or without, full screen or smaller video, center aligned or not... Choose whatever you prefer.

100% Brand Color Ready

All the templates are fully color customizable to fit your brand!

Add and Delete Any Element

The templates come with elements such as the Author image and description, next and previous lesson buttons etc. But you can easily add or delete any of these elements.

Smart Colors for One-Click Color Customization

Thrive Apprentice templates are using our proprietary smart color technology. This technology makes it one-click easy for you to pick your brand color and all the variations (shades, gradients...) will automatically be applied.

An Easy Setup Wizard That Works With Any WordPress Theme

Setting up your course environment is super easy with the Apprentice Setup Wizard. The wizard will guide you through picking your preferred base templates. This allows you to have a beautiful online course section on your website and it works with ANY WordPress theme!

In just 1 day I created everything I needed to sell my courses!

Thank you very much. I've spun my wheels for months to understand how to do all of this.

In just 1 day I created everything I needed to sell my courses.

Intelligent Marketing Features That Allow You to Sell MORE Easily

Creating a course is a lot of work, but it’s only just the beginning… Now that you have your course set up and your course environment up and running it’s time to sell as many courses as possible…

No worries, Thrive Apprentice has got you covered!

The Most Flexible Drip Functionality Available for WordPress

Most plugins will promise you drip but none as flexible as Thrive Apprentice!

evergreen repeating

Unlock content at consistent intervals for each student. This is ideal for courses that are always open for purchase.

Eg. Unlock a new lesson every week on Monday when someone purchases a course.

scheduled repeating

Unlock content at consistent intervals for each student. This is ideal for courses that are always open for purchase.

Eg. Unlock a new lesson every week on Monday when someone purchases a course.

day of the week or month

Unlock content on a specific week day or day of the month. Ideal for recurring memberships.

Eg. Unlock a new module every first Monday of the month.

Drip on Specific Dates

Unlock content on specific calendar dates that you can customize. Ideal for cohort learning courses with irregular schedules.

Eg. Unlock a new lesson the 10th, 17th and 24th of July then skip 1 week for implementation then continue on the 7th of August.

Thrive Automator Unlock

Use custom event triggers and third party integrations to unlock content. Ideal for course creators who use a diverse stack of tools.

Eg. When a tag gets added and a webhook is received from an email marketing service, unlock a new lesson.

Thrive Quiz Builder Unlock

Unlock a lesson based on the results of a quiz in Thrive Quiz Builder. Ideal if you want to make sure students understand the content before continuing the course.

Eg. Only unlock the next module if the students gets an 80% or higher on the quiz.

As you can see, the above options already allow for advanced drip schedules, but there is more.


You can mix and match these options.


For example, you can unlock the next module after 1 week BUT ONLY if the student had a specific result on the quiz. Or you can immediately unlock the next lesson when a custom event trigger comes in from Thrive Automator OR on the next Monday.

What’s unique to the Thrive Apprentice Drip feature is not just its flexibility but the fact that you can create multiple drip schedules for the same content. This is what we call “Decoupled Drip”.

Other course plugins force you to copy the course if you want to sell a course that starts in June and again if it starts in October. Or if you want to sell a course that’s dripped and a higher priced version that’s immediately available. Not Thrive Apprentice! 

With Decoupled Drip you can market like the pros without creating a frankenstein of duplicated courses impossible to keep up to date.

I was expecting a well done drip function, but the idea to tie drip to a product is ingenious and unique!

Wooohoo! Congratulations, this takes Thrive Apprentice to a whole new level. I was expecting a well done drip function, now you come up with this mega package of features and I must admit the long wait was worth it in the end.

The idea to tie the drip to the product and not to the course is simply ingenious and unique.
And a special thank you for the possibility to protect other content with rules.

Please keep up the good work!

Personalize Every Visitor’s Experience on Your Website With Conditional Display

It’s hard to summarize how powerful conditional display actually is in just a few sentences…

 Just imagine that you can show certain elements on a page based on the visitor’s status as a simple visitor, a logged-in lead or a customer.

This opens the door for scenarios like:

A course overview page with and without buy now call to action.

A course overview page with and without buy now call to action.

Learn more about conditional display

A different pricing table for customers and
non-customers.

Visitors and leads would see the “buy now” button but paying students would get a distraction free experience.

A personalized account page showing only the products someone has access to and show upsell opportunities.

The people most likely to buy from you are your previous customers!

Get More Sales With Dynamic Labels and Links

Imagine you have multiple courses available for visitors to buy. Thrive Apprentice gives you the power to show Dynamic Labels on each of those courses based on EACH visitor’s course status.

Already a customer? Let visitors know clicking will send them to their most recent lesson. Not a customer? Dynamic Labels can show which courses visitors haven't bought yet. And should non-customers try to open a premium course, you can send them to its sales page instead!

Beyond Online Courses…

Thrive Apprentice is A Full-Blown Membership Plugin

Thrive Apprentice makes it super easy to sell your online courses, but what about other types of membership websites?


How about a website where instead of getting access to courses, customers get access to blog posts and pages? Can Thrive Apprentice do that?

 

YES!

Without having to invest in a separate membership plugin, Thrive Apprentice can protect posts and pages on your site.

Give Your Customers the Best Possible User Experience

One of the biggest concerns for course creators selling on WordPress is that it can feel very clunky for the student.

 Login screens look ugly, students end up lost in the back-end of the WordPress dashboard and restricted content looks archaic when a student stumbles upon it without being logged-in.

Not when using Thrive Apprentice! A lot of thought and effort went into making sure you can create the best possible user experience for your students.

Because happy students = Less support requests and more repeat sales.

Beautiful Login and Registration Flows

Say goodbye to those ugly Login & Registration pages the other WordPress LMS plugins force you to use...

Thrive Apprentice gives you the power to completely customize the design of your student Login & Registration forms — as well as the pages they live on!

Translation Ready

Your lessons aren't in English? No problem.

Thrive Apprentice gives you the power to create courses in any language you require!

Custom Header Content

With Thrive Apprentice you can show and hide header menu items based on the login status of the student. 

This makes it easy to add a login link for non-logged in students which changes in a logout link when the student is logged in.

Progress Bar and Lesson Complete Indicators

To help students navigate your course, you can show progress bars that will dynamically update based on the course progress as well as allow students to mark lessons as complete.

Quizzes to Improve Student Engagement Using Thrive Quiz Builder

Use the power of quizzes to engage your students. Block course progression based on quiz results, enforce quiz completion, ask multimedia questions and more.

Thrive Quiz Builder combined with Thrive Apprentice becomes the perfect solution to create an interactive student experience.

Thrive Themes was the best investment I made for my business.

Thrive Themes was the best investment I made for my business.

I can literally do everything I want, from adding a punky design all over my site with the woosh of a click, to zooming in on my potential customers thanks to cool opt-ins and popups.

Without it, I think working on my website would be as hard and frustrating as a day without a good ol' cup of dark coffee 70% Arabica 30% Robusta (Kenyan is the best).

I can think of almost no other suppliers who I am as happy to pay the bill for.

I've been using your themes and plugins for a couple of years or so now. As a micro-business, particularly one hit hard by COVID, every recurring expense that I have has to be considered carefully and justified. I can think of almost no other suppliers who I am as happy to pay the bill for.

The products you create are excellent, and the interface for them is absolutely first class, every time.

I often find myself using other people's tools (for example ActiveCampaign) and thinking "I wish Thrive Themes made this - it would be so much better."

Not only that, but (and perhaps even more importantly) the support you offer is second to none - always an answer, never a problem, no matter how many questions I've had.

Thrive Apprentice Integrations

Thrive Apprentice has direct integrations with the most popular tools for running your online business as well as a ton of triggers and actions available in Thrive Automator, our free automation tool.

Thinking of an integration that’s not available in this list? Thrive Automator will most likely allow you to seamlessly connect it with Thrive Apprentice

The WooCommerce integration is a dream come true.

Thrive Apprentice + WooCommerce is a dream come true to me too. Now I can get rid of the membership plugin and move forward.

Great developments like Thrive Automator is the reason I will be a customer for LIFE!
