In a rapidly changing world, the need for online publishers to keep up with the needs and expectations of their site visitors is paramount. Today, many cutting edge web publishers use content management systems (CMS) to allow them to instantly and dynamically update web pages and properties as new content becomes available so that every visit to a site is engaging, informative, and meaningful. CMS systems provide content developers with an option of creating powerful and highly-functional websites, landing pages, e-commerce features, social media tools and a wide range of other specialized and powerful function, many which eliminate the need for those developers to learn more traditional web development languages and coding like HTML, PHP, CSS and JavaScript. This course explores the use of open source web-based content management systems such as Joomla, Moodle, WordPress and other online software solutions, which can be used to create dynamic and flexible web sites and landing pages. Learners will explore the fundamentals of planning dynamic websites, CMS database management, developing CSS-controlled site templates and creating database driven websites through the planning and creation of their own topic-based sites.
