B2J Academy template for education


Education is the key to success! People are learning and learning and learning all their life. Our whole life is a school. Sure, we also have breaks between high school and college then grad school. But all in all, every second of our life is spent on learning something new even if we do not realize it.

And where and how do we learn to learn? Educational institutions, starting from kindergarten and school, are the first environments where we learn how to study and learn.

With an internet world as we have now, everything goes viral and the education is not an exception.

I have been previously working in an IT company which aimed at implementing IT in education and the project was successful! You ask why? Because people spend more time online and the information they need to digest should be found on net.

The parents no longer need to go to school to see the grades their children are getting, they can view it online. And when deciding upon which college to go, people no longer need to visit the college itself, just can take a virtual tour via its web site and find all the info you need.

Moreover, there are millions of people who are getting their degrees online! Study and learn whenever and wherever convenient within distance online. For example, Coursera, a great educational platform which is ONLINE and which will provide you with the great courses from such institution as Duke University.

Then comes 'Academy' which branches out to Partners, Our Professors and Our Students. These are the pages where you can perfectly introduce to your institution’s background and history and provide information on professors and students.

‘Courses’ displays various K2 items: ART, BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, and on mouse click it takes the user to a K2 Single Item view.

There are many K2 category views one of which is the 'Blog'. It shows all the K2 items from the relevant category. Another category view is 'Gallery! Yes it is, the trick is it only fetches photos and tabs assigned to the Gallery category. For the ‘Community’ we have used a great Joomla extension – Kunena forum.
