What should be in a Joomla! web basics course?

Joomla! Advanced CSS with Jen KramerOne of our lynda.com authors, Jen Kramer, and I are scheduled to talk this week about an idea for a new course. Jen is the author of Joomla! Creating and Editing Custom Templates and Joomla! Advanced CSS in the lynda.com Online Training Library®, and creates Joomla! based sites through her company, 4Web.

Since publishing these courses with us, Jen tells me she has been surprised by the number of lynda.com members who have written in asking her how to make the graphics and base-line web site assets/HTML for Joomla! sites. She had wrongly assumed that most people already knew how to do this, and we’ll be talking about creating a course to explain these details.

A whole new generation of web publishers are coming in through the CMS (content management system) door (i.e. WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla!), and their learning process is different than those of us who started in web development and design before CMS existed.

I’m planning to green-light her new course suggestion for a Joomla! web basics course because I love to find new ways to support the diverse membership of lynda.com. One of the joys of building the library is to listen to what members want to know, and fill the holes and gaps.

What would you like to see in a Joomla! course that focused on building design, forms and HTML assets?

Learn it from the experts.
