I’m attempting to create a news website over the summer for a unit I teach on online journalism. At the moment, I’ve narrowed one thing down – I”ll be using Joomla as the CMS. I chose it because: a) I like open source b) I like free stuff and c) it looks relatively easy to set up. The college is using Moodle as its VLE, so I thought that there was a useful fit there. But I did look at other content systems like Mambo and College Publisher, and I’ll explain a bit about it when I get time.
Standby for a lot more posts about this in the next moth or so as I attempt to get to grips with it.
