WordPress for Educators, Schools, and Non-Profits

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,
http://www.meetup.com/NYCNonprofit/events/138939002/?a=uc1_te

WordPress users in all areas will gain valuable knowledge at this must-attend meetup for educators and non-profits.

Presenting is D.K. Smith... a WordPress expert and former Director of Academic Technology at Brooklyn Friends School, where he taught teachers how to integrate technology into teaching.  He currently serves on the Superintendent's Committee for Technology in the Westchester school district where his daughter is enrolled, and is a co-author of the district's three-year tech plan.  D.K. is also the founder of ProBonoWP.org, a matching service for non-profits seeking help with WordPress.

    FYI. I looked briefly for WordPress-based Learning Management Themes and saw this an interesting one on ThemeForest.net. I wouldn't recommend it, or much on ThemeForest.net, for newbies, but might be interesting for people with some familiarity with WordPress, and for a small to medium-sized site. See it at:

      It seems to have many of the elements we discussed, including an open support forum - http://themextemplate...­

    I work with lots of not-for-profits (non-profits but too small or alternative for a 501c3).
