I tried few weeks ago, Sensei and Learn Dash (premium version of both) and finally choose Sensei. Both are very similar but Sensei has interactive blocks that make the difference. Sensei sell the interactive blocks alone, so I installed interactive blocks in LEarnDash and works very well but I ask me why I should pay more for Learn Dash ($199 plus $49 of interactive blocks) if Sensei is the same ($149), cheaper and has the interactive blocks. I give to Sensei only 4 stars because don't allow integration with forums of BBpress. Sensei has a intermediate solution with native comments but is not the same as a forum system.

Excellent plugin, good support and rave reviews. Also, it's great that we can sell courses through WooCommerce (as we should, since they are both part of Automattic). But... The free version should work first, and be useful, and include support. THEN is a good time to ask for an upgrade to the paid version. If the free version doesn't work or needs extra support, there is little incentive to upgrade. Happy users make happy customers. Asking to upgrade before any courses are made is premature.

Sensei es un gran plugin para crear y vender cursos online de forma sencilla y es increible todas las mejoras que está incorporando en los últimos años. Quién lo haya usado hace 1 año, no sabe lo que tiene ahora, porque el volumen de mejoras y funcionalidades está siendo increible y se agradece mucho. Sensei is a great plugin to create and sell online courses in a simple way and all the improvements that it has been incorporating in recent years are incredible.

Ik really liked it. And we were able to convert our wpcourseware lessons to Sensei, how wonderfull. We nearly bought it for 3 sites. There are a few buts: - Lay-out not really attractive and not much possibilities to adjust. - Lay-out of course catalogue is really hideous. - Some translations are so bad, that we are afraid to send the messages to our student (Dutch language). Of-course we can hire a developer to change it all, but after years of experience with other plugins we know everything can be solved, bit it takes a lot of time and energy and every year or so the same issues pop-up. So, no Sensei. Pity. I liked it, its simple and the prices are good. But to many buts.
