Best Web-Software for Teaching / Resources

Recommended Posts

Caleeco    19

Hello, 

I run a Forum which helps people troubleshoot Excel/VBA problems by posting questions, and I use the awesome IPS4.1 to do this. 

However, I'm looking to have my main page be a resource for people who want to learn how to program in VBA. I want a wesbite that:

  1.  I can post tutorials with pictures, text, hyperlinks to other pages and places on the same page 
  2.  Has a intelligent navigation bar (almost like the contents page of a book) displayed at all times so people can see what tutorials/topics are available..
  3.  Be highly SEO friendly
  4. Clean looking (wont have chatboxes, discord etc)

Something like this : https://excelmacromastery.com/vba-dictionary/

But a bit slicker looking and easier to navigate. 

What is the best web software to use? I had a look at Wordpress but couldn't find any suitable templates. 

Any advice would be appreciated. 

Thanks

Caleeco

Don't need software for it, get a developer to make it for you (Well or make it yourself) :P 

So I would say an HTML and Javascript. website designed to your needs. And with added support for the REST API for IPS.

This means that a user can read the topics register etc. but it still built only for you.

Some people might argue that you can use PAGES, but I just prefer to do it with pure code.

 

EDIT: Could do it yourself with WordPress as front :)

Aha... I thought that may be the case.

 

I wanted to avoid the HTML route as it's not something I have experience with or a great deal of free time to learn. I'll check out PAGES, but I fear it won't do what I need. I don't want a blog style site as it wont function as I intend but I'll play around with it and see what I can make work. 

 

Many Thanks

Caleeco

Haha! Fair point, I know a bit of HTML but will need to do some more learning to start customising a new website.

Lots of coffee and a few weekends should set me on my way!

Thanks for your advice :)

Best tip to start sololearn ;) Free do HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Jquery. Once done Try PHP.

Pass all and you should have no issues bootstrapping a page.

There's a software on Softaculous for education. Can't remember what it's called .. Moodle or Mooney... it's an education thing.

 

It might work for you.
