We invite small and medium sized businesses to join us for a series of workshops aimed at enabling innovation through an online presence.

Joomla! Enabling Business

Joomla! is a user friendly but professional CMS that is relatively easy to work with however making the wrong choices can over complicate a website, opening it up to vulnerability and make it become difficult to work with. This one day masterclass looks at simplifying the process of building a Joomla! site from scratch. Describing the “back end” and “front end”, functionality and demonstrates how to safely add in additional features using extensions and templates. We will also discuss security, content, curation, the legal side of website ownership and running social media.


This session will be run by Jason Roper, NTU Enabling Innovation, Analyst and Computing Consultant.
