I just end my 1st session CMS workshop for IM110 students from Faculty of Information Management UiTM Kota Samarahan. For today, I will teach the student how to setup Joomla using WAMP server and some simple configuration to customize the CMS. Hopefully the students will use the knowledge given in the future.
At last, the end of this semester (June-October 2011). I've completed uploading my students marks into the system last week. So this week my focus on exploring few Content Management System (CMS) and their module. As now a lot of CMS out there in the market/internet that can be used & tested. My passion is on WordPress, Drupal & Joomla. Joomla is among the famous and widely used by the user & enterprise for website and the extension or also know as Joomla! Extension Directory (JED) have lot of module and plugin that can be used. I've used joomla 1.5 before this and never test or used the new version 1.7. So why waiting, downloads and test the CMS.
Today I helping my friend for the joomla training for student in my faculty also my former lecture Ms Linda join helping the training. The students are from IS 221 (Information System Management) part 6 and the purpose of the training to expose them to Content Management System (CMS) so they can use for their future use. Thus will help the in developing for instance a system or website for personal use or business purposes. Hope this effort can bring them a new perspective on the CMS.
