It’s really not a time taking and complex task. All you need is just an integration plugin that can integrate your WordPress LMS Plugin with the WordPress Social Network Plugin.

Login to your WordPress Dashboard. and install a WordPress Social Network Plugin. Now, download and install WordPress LMS Plugin. Next, install a plugin that can integrate both the plugins to create a social learning environment.

My recommendation:

For Social Network Features

You can opt for BuddyPress or PeepSo to set up a social community environment.

A major benefit of using BuddyPress with your WordPress LMS Plugin is that BuddyPress offers group features by default. And, when you integrate it with WordPress LMS Plugin, a group of learners and their teacher who have joined a particular course, automatically gets formed.

For LMS features

You can opt for LearnDash or LifterLMS. Both these plugins provide great functionalities to create an eLearning website on WordPress.
