In the last post on what you need to build a website , I listed WordPress as the most popular CMS (Content Management System) on the Internet with 33.8% usage and 60.6% market share. In this post, I will go into the types of websites you can create with WordPress. Before then, let’s look into what WordPress is and how it came about.
WordPress is a software that powers about 34% of websites on the internet, it was designed to make it easy and straightforward for anyone to publish online contents. It focus on accessibility, performance, security and ease of use with great features and extensions for just about whatever you need your website to do. WordPress was created as an open-source software in 2003 by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, a fork from the original blog platform b2/cafelog, which was created by Michel Valdrighi. WordPress started out as a blogging platform and it has since evolved over the years into a fully-pledged CMS that powers just about any type of website.

By so doing, Businesses can generate more income from wider customer reach, ideas can be shared, transformed and enriched with greater connections and projects can become businesses through awareness, connections and reach to a wider audience far beyond what can be reached ordinarily.

Despite all the above problems, it is not all doom and gloom for E-learning in the Country because where this is a problem, there is always a solution or several solutions. Many Institutions are finding way round the problems and are successfully using E-learning to enhance and transform their Education provisions in new and innovative ways all-over the country. Most importantly Education Technology is not at a standstill, the speed of growth in Edtech is not stopping and the evolution and growth in this sector comes with newer solutions to existing and evolving problems.
Here are some of the major challenges facing the implementation of E-learning in Nigerian Institutions.
1. Limited awareness of technology and its implementation in Education.
One might be surprised that there is still ignorance abound regarding Education Technology within lauded Institutions. There is no doubt E-learning is everywhere especially with Mobile accessibility these days, Mooc Platforms and Khan Academy to name just a few. The fact is, having one implemented successfully and continuous managed within an Institution could be seen as far-fetched due to various connected reasons.
