WordPress (CMS)

DESCRIPTION

CMS features vary widely. Most CMSs include Web-based publishing, format management, history editing and version control, indexing, search, and retrieval. By their nature, content management systems support the separation of content and presentation. A web content management system (WCM or WCMS) is a CMS designed to support the management of the content of Web pages. Most popular CMSs are also WCMSs. Web content includes text and embedded graphics, photos, video, audio, maps, and program code (e.g., for applications) that displays content or interacts with the user.

HOW TO?

A well made instruction is available to create a WordPress based site in 4 steps: “Let’s create your new site” . You need a web address where your website is hosted. Than you install the main type of WordPress application (blog, website, portfolio, shop). After that procedure you can choose or change the final design template for your site. You can adapt in a simply and fast way the design and specify f.e. the main index, images or keywords for your personal requirements.
Not to worry! WordPress, like any skill, is one that can be developed through practice. All steps are well documented.
To get started developing your own site, it is essential to evaluate the way of communications inside VET groups!

  • Blog to discuss and share ideas, images, material with VET teachers and learner
  • website to promote special issues, content to the VET learners
  • portfolio presentation of single results or persons
  • wiki to develop a multiple VET user online libraries
IMPLEMENTATION IN VET

TIPS

  • Take a look to the online templates to find out the best structure for your project.
  • Avoid long and complicate navigation path inside your side. A good usability it’s very important.
  • Let student participate in the project. Often you find much faster a good solution for the structure of information. This concept could be used as effective way to introduce the approach in VET classes.
  • Another possible way to implement in VET this approach could be connected with the consideration of the worst-case scenario as it forces to go over the fear that could block the creativity.
  • If you start with a wiki you can use the “playground” for testing. It is a namespace which is pre-installed with the docuwiki plugin for wordpress.

EXERCISE

It is possible to work on a wordpress project with multiple user?
You can pre-istall for your VET class a lot of sitse under the same domain f.e. www.domain.com/project01; www.domain.com/project02; www.domain.com/project03;.
So every student can start with his own project.
If you want to work on a wiki it is possible to share different tasks in one wiki with a group of students.
