    New Website developement and SchoolWorld

    We are trying to update our school website because it's so out of date.

    Anyone have any thoughts on SchoolWorld Anyone using something similar or have any recommendations for school websites?

    We're a small school and as the IT Admin, I have a lot of other duties so I need something easy for me to learn and maintain. So I'm stuck doing this. This site seems to have the features we need. Such as lesson planner modules and more. Their portfolio has nice templates.

    They fit into ERATE so we'll be getting 90% of our money back for hosting and maintenance.

    Any input of ideas would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    KY

    Have you looked at the EduJoomla package?

    Hi,

    No I haven't check out the packages but I've even played around with Joomla for a bit. Got it up and running and did some simple things. It's too time consuming to learn and read everything when there's money for us to pay for setup and maintenance. I want someone to train me and someone to call when I need help.

    Were you refering to the site Joomla Packages : Joomla Development Made Easy or did you have another site?

    We are ruling out freelancing because we want to work with a company who has dedicated staff for maintenance and support.

    Thanks,
    KY

    Edu-IT was on about the EduGeek Joomla Template

    Joomla isn't that hard to learn, there is loads of help on here for Joomla.

    Some freelancers can also do maintenance and support.

    I think what Kaoyang is trying to say is that he needs a company that is reputable with a proven track record of the full package.

    Also if he has the money, but not the time it makes sense to go with a company. After all the EduJoomla package isn't free if you take into account your wages and time that could be spent doing other things.

    If you want a company/someone to look after your website then i would look at

    CSNewMedia (Carl) or VeloxServ (Craig) are both on the forums and i am sure they would be able to sort something out for you. I would host it for you, but if your looking for the Full Time Support and Service the unfortunately this is not something i have time to do.

    If it was just hosting i could sort you out some space on the servers i have hosted but obviously you would the extra services.
