Welcome to the VTC course for Joomla!. I'm your instructor, Melanie Hedgespeth. In this course you will learn about the content management system named Joomla!. Joomla! is an open-source, free program that you can use to get total control of your website design, navigation, updates, text and much more. With Joomla! you can keep your site up to date very easily and add all kinds of extra elements. Things like polls, sign-ups and newsflashes. In this course, we're going to cover Joomla! basics, which includes installing Joomla!, how to get help with the program and also being aware of Joomla! terminology. It's definitely important to understand specific key terms within the program so you can easily manager your site and easily work with the software. Once we master those basics, we'll move into the actual content of our Joomla! site. We will work with all the elements including the menus, navigational items, articles, polls and much more. At this point you're going to have the skills to implement components into your site and then we'll work on editing those items and increasing the professionalism of your site. As we continue to learn, we will work with extensions, templates and managing users. If you have a site that grows, you're going to need to be able to add users who can help maintain and keep all that information up to date on your site. Finally, we're going to work with search engine optimization. It's great to have a wonderful website, but you need to be able to drive Internet traffic to your pages. We'll take a look at our options in that area. We have a lot to learn and Joomla! is a fun program to play with. So let's get started. Remember, throughout the course you can always e-mail me with questions or you can go to my website; it's MyTechRelief.com. If you go to the Contact area I have a little mebo chat there. You can see if I'm online and I can answer your questions quickly. So let's get started with Joomla! and start learning.
