Recently, our developers integrated the MasterStudy with BuddyPress plugin to expand the opportunities of the theme. BuddyPress gives an opportunity for the students and teachers to create a community. Further, BuddyPress has incredible features as Course Groups, Activity Feeds, Course messaging and Advanced Profiles.
Next, BuddyPress allows students and teachers to socialize as they can add friends, have group chats or private messages. The BuddyPress will be as Facebook, but only for the MasterStudy students. Students and teachers will have their own profiles and manage others by sending messages and chatting. Group chats will allow sharing the knowledge or experience with other students who are struggling with a specific topic or question.
The BuddyPress in integration with MasterStudy will provide tremendous opportunities, as the students will not only study but also make a network. It will engage other potential customers as well because people will share their experience through word of mouth. As a consequence, your business will have more potential to be recognized and to be expanded.
