Packt is pleased to announce a new book on Plone that helps website creators maintain, manage and edit educational websites. Written by Erik Rose, a member of the Plone 4 and 5 Framework Teams, Plone 3 for Education will help website creators represent educational courses using Plone's various built-in content types such as news items, collections, and events.
Plone is a free open source Content Management System (CMS) that’s built on top of the Zope application server. Plone lets non-technical people create and maintain information for a public website or an intranet using only a web browser. It is because of its superior security and advanced back-end, that it holds a technological edge over many major CMSes.
Plone 3 for Education will help educators build common e-learning tasks in Plone such as assignment schedules, course materials and online turn-in forms. It facilitates class interaction using podcasts and forums and helps website creators customize the look of their website. They will also learn to set up a production server as well as integrate audio and video into their course materials and podcast it to the world.
Readers are shown, through 11 common step-by-step cases perfect for educational use, how to integrate the various features that Plone offers with the best third-party plug-ins, in-order to create a dynamic web environment that will be a joy to use for the faculty, thereby enhancing staff productivity and engaging the student body. Users who want to create websites for schools, universities and other e-learning portals using the Plone CMS, will find this book an interesting and beneficial read. The book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: www.packtpub.com/plone-3-for-education/book
