In October 2009 the new Joomla training course - Joomlashack University opened its door to its first class of 100 students. For the last 4 weeks, these students have been learning how to Joomla with our rich video screencasts and tutorials and asking questions and networking in our forums.
Before launching Shack U, we knew we had a great product to offer. We gave leading Joomla figures a sneak look at the content and, as you can read yourself, they loved it.
As well as teaching insider Joomla tips and tricks to our first students, we have been taking feedback and improving the course. We have streamlined the student path through the learning content and added more courses.
After 4 weeks, we are ready to open our doors again.
On Wednesday, 1pm EST we'll be opening the course for our 2nd class. We are increasing the number of places to 200 and the price will be $147 for a 6 month subscription.
If you aren't sure about the investment, you only need to look as far as what students from our first class has been saying in our forum...
"I signed up as soon as they opened the doors and I and so glad I did. I've used Joomla for awhile and have built several sites, but there were still plenty of things I needed and wanted to learn and the "U" has delivered .I plan on being a life time member, and considering the cost versus the value received I don't think you can beat what is offered here. If you're not a member what are you waiting for? Get in line and wait eagerly for the doors to open to the next round of the 'U'"
"I'm hooked on Shack U! When I heard about this I was eager to sign-up. I have not been disappointed! Barrie and Forest are there every step of the way to provide support in the Joomlashack University forum. I am excited about being a part of Shack U and am looking forward to future courses! I encourage you to sign-up and join our 'student body'!"
"Joomla is not the easiest environment to get your head around. I taught myself, it took me quite a long time, I bought a book and worked my way through it and in the end I was reasonably competent. I enrolled in the JoomlaShack course because I want to be an expert at Joomla. If you want to learn Joomla I recommend the Joomla University to you. I believe that it is the quickest, most cost effective way of learning Joomla."
"This is BY FAR the best money I've spent to learn Joomla. I have bought books, read info online, taken other tutorials. This program makes things crystal clear."
As a new student, you'll be able to experience the new Intermediate Course we have started to add following our Beginner Course. It looks at customizing templates, maintaining your site code, basic marketing and working with media. We also have a new, and ever expanding, library of quick How To's on core Joomla questions.
Remember, as we add more content and courses, our subscription price will go up. If you join Joomlashack University this week, all your future membership will be locked in at this "launch-special" pricing!
