This meetup will explore how educators, non-profits, schools, and teachers can leverage WordPress to accomplish goals.
Part-1 is a presentation:
* why WordPress is an excellent LMS (learning management system) for teachers and schools.
* integrating fundraising and constituent relations management into non-profit websites.
* how educators can use WordPress to teach online courses for free or fee-based.
* themes, plugins, and frameworks to make all this possible... with live website examples.
Part-2 is an open discussion in which we'll all learn from each other. Several of our members have extensive experience in developing WordPress sites for non-profits. Email me if you'd like to demo a site or some specific functionality.
This is a joint event with NYC Non-Profit NYC Meetup Club,
WordPress users in all areas will gain valuable knowledge at this must-attend meetup for educators and non-profits.
