This weeks module is about CMS. CMS is Content Management System. CMS is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content could be pictures, text, music, video, documents, and just about anything. Anyone can use CMS, and since CMS manages everything for you, you really don’t have to do anything.
Some examples of what CMS can do is:
- Non-profit and organizational Web sites
- Community-based portals
- School and church Web sites
- Personal or family homepages
- Corporate Web sites or portals
- Corporate intranets and extranets
- Online magazines, newspapers, and publications
- E-commerce and online reservations
- Government applications
- Small business Web sites
A lot of people use CMS. I got all this info from https://www.joomla.org/about-joomla.html
The next part of the module is to pretend that you have been asked to recommend a CMS to a local business which is planning to build a website, recommend one of the three CMSes discussed and explain why you would recommend it.
A common website that a lot of businesses use is a website called Joomla!. Joomla! is one of the world’s most popular software packages used to build, organize, manage and publish content for websites, blogs, Intranets and mobile applications. One of the CMSes I recommend is Joomla! because it is a award winning CMS led by an international community of more than a half million active contributors, helping the most inexperienced user to seasoned web developer make their digital visions a reality.
