'Interesting and informative'
'Easy to understand'
You only need to know how to use Microsoft Windows and a browser such as Microsoft Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to start learning everything needed about building a professional website.
In these free sessions you will be using a fully functioning practice website that you use to become familiar with creating content including uploading images and creating menu items to navigate to your newly created content. www.aurateal.com
We introduce you to hosting, content production, media tools, site navigation, modular design, the directories of extensions and templates, SEO, and traditional marketing in about 2 hours. We will also be able to answer all of your questions about you building websites for your social or commercial or political enterprises.
If you have any questions you can contact Jed Keenan on 079 5096 3069 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The session is run by Jed Keenan who has been building Joomla websites for 3 years. He is currently Chair of his award winning Residents’ Association and has worked in public policy and community development for about 5 years including working as a researcher for Diane Abbott MP.
Joomla is a free open source content management system (CMS) and is very straightforward to learn and to use. It is about 7 years old and is in its 3rd generation. It is a worldwide community project and also slightly better than its closest rivals WordPress and Drupal. It is used by Peogeot, the Guggenheim Museum, Danone, etc.
We have run free weekly sessions since January 2013 and so far have trained 550 people. We also offer a subscription service of 62 workshops a year and technical support for £252/year or £150/3-months for commercial organisations, £168/year or £102/3-months for waged individuals/third sector organisations or £96/year or £60/3-months for concessions.
