What is the LearnDash dashboard?

The admin, teachers, and students each have their own dashboard using the LearnDash Dashboard Plugin. They may use this dashboard to perform and alter each block based on their needs. They may conveniently manage their courses, lessons, and contacts by creating their own dashboard. If you desire, you can quickly deactivate any area with this plugin. You may align, color, and re-position each block using the Learndash Dashboard plugin. A form can also be used to add teacher responsibilities and register an instructor. The commission distribution function also gives the teacher dynamic graphs to help them manage their tasks.

Well, that’s more than enough for LearnDash Dashboard, and if you still wanna know more about it, then why not head to the link given above?
