Thinking about things in terms of other things

Course > lesson > topic > quiz.

Program > module > insights > review.

It’s tricky building something new for the first time. I’ve worked with curriculum before, and I’ve used technology to build it, but I’ve never been responsible for the whole shebang.

Check this out…

#nlgs18 is being built on LearnDash. It’s a $200/yr LMS.

LearnDash is connected to BBpress, a simple—and free—forum plugin. We’ll all be helping each other out in the cozy confines of a private forum.

BBpress is getting extended with BuddyPress, which is another free plugin delivering improved group and display features.

This is all built on WordPress, my content management system (CMS), which is also free, albeit hosted on a $30-ish/mo, optimized DreamPress plan from DreamHost.

Which is all a great way of saying I’ve added online degree programs and a forum to my blog.

It’s all in how you think about it, ya know?

FINALLY bought an LMS

Been wanting this for YEARS.

Long story short, the future of GBXM is a business model built on helping gearheads live better lives by helping other gearheads live better lives. A learning management system (LMS) is the foundation upon which we build that legacy.

I’ve long said business should exist to make a difference before making a profit.

I’ve just put my money where my mouth is. I am SO EXCITE.

And I might have an extra site license or two…
