My 'Joomla 3 - The Basics' Experience
by Timothy Ifill
I had a wonderful I opening experience learning the basics of Joomla.
I was first introduces to Joomla about 7 years ago, and at the time I knew nothing about website design or even heard about CMS.
Back then I was taught how to do a couple things which included the uploading of images to the photo Gallery. I have had no training since Joomla 1.0 so there were lots of things to learn in order to use 3.7x. Siteskills provided that opportunity to broaden my knowledge of website design and I am exceedingly glad.
by Gary Johnson
Course was excellent. I will be buying other courses. I have a Word Press site with Host Gator and will be learning more about that also. Richard is an excellent teacher.
Great start to getting to know Joomla
by Ian Clare
I have always been the type of person to try something and then learn how to do it. I have tried Joomla before without great success. The Joomla 3 - the Basics is a great resource to use. Through reading the workbook, watching the videos I have established a firm basis to expand my knowledge and it was free. Going on to do the full course now.
Joomla is not for me
by Bill Jones
Took the course, which is very good, to see what Joomla is all about. A Joomla plus is it does offer free 2 step login but everything else costs $$$. I'm trying to build a free instructional website for Amateur Radio operators. Guess I'll stick with WordPress unless I can find something better.

Excellent, well made, concise. Everyone should start with this course.
Best two+ hours I spent this week ...
by Hoosen Essof
SO here's the thing ... I had downloaded and started the Journey a few days ago and sort of built a (localhost) site UNTIL!! Yes until I hit a wall ... you giys came by just by chance after searching and viewing dozens of videos etc. ThanX!
My Review for Joomla basic
by Rajeev Kumar Ranjan
The Joomla basic is very helpful for beginner.
Thank you Site Skills's team.
Joomla 3 - The basics is a very good starting point if you are unfamiliar with CMS for websites

I am a software developer with some website knowledge but I had never used a content management system before. I found this course very informative and easy to follow and I now have a much better understanding of how the system hangs together.

My first Joomla tutorial
by Edmond Saint-Jean
The instructor was very knowledgeable. The pacing and the contents of the course were well presented. The enthusiasm of the instructor was a driving force for me to complete the course without a break. Excellent presentation!!
Awesome course to teach the Basics!
by Jacqualan Keady
This course is awesome it teaches all the Basics in easy chapter like courses. I have seen paid courses not near as in detail or as clear as this. Well done Richard!
A great starter course for Joomla

by Wangkong Jiwa
The course is good, as the beginer i can know with easy about babsic joomla, thanks
Obvious and to the point
by Lewis Linnett
Super combination of audio and graphics in videos.
This allows repeat or a quick review where points may have been missed due to concentrating on info being imparted, whilst understanding/comprehending the info at the same time (the old 'learning to drive a car concept' where more than one thing is going on at the same time)
Plus, the duration and content of the videos allows the the Joomla systems and concepts easily become intuitive when putting into practice
Well spent 2 hours
by Joanna Melas
Richard's presentation is excellent! Clear and concise with enough detail to give me direction.
by Michael Carson
Awesome Course. Gave me all the info I needed to get started. Would highly recommend.
by Paul Mombeshora
Thank you so much the Joomla basics training is awesome!
Well spoken and understandable. Most Helpful for Joomla!
by Eion MacDonald
1. Having set up a basic Joomla! web site some 10 years ago, i followed this course to learn how I "should' have done it.
2 Very good introduction.
3. Well paced and template and module lessons most helpful.
I'll be back!!
by Clare Kirby
I wish I had known about this course more than 12 months ago. We hired a company to build us a new website (the old one was in Drupal and very limited) which I thought should only take a few months, maybe 6 at most. 14 months and over $8,000 later - don't get me started on the monthly hosting & support fees ($236.50 per month!!) - we've only just launched and after doing the basic course I can see we've been given the run around a bit. I'm not saying I'm capable of building the site we want today but I intend to go on with this training and once we've finished our first year (locked in), hopefully we can move our site somewhere else at far less expense.
More than the basics
by Olanrewaju Oyinbooke
This course is indeed great one and I find it difficult to believe it's just the basics as the knowledge attainable has really set me on the goal.
Thanks for the hard work and your loyalty.
Great & Useful Course
by Yasser Farid
thanks for the really useful information, I'm an IT professional using other CMS products, and I want to try Joomla, and I hope that I got valuable information to start my Joomla Adventure, keep on.
by Daniel Conde Urra
Excellent course. Thanks
by Kenneth Baker
What I like most about this free course, is it is clear and concise. I have been looking at joomla for a while now, this is first time I felt comfortable with what I was hearing. I am one who wants to know whats going on, not just do something to get result in this instance. Of course I am at 50% point so will review again when done. Ken

Excellence in learning, faster than I thought it would be.
by Anne-Catherine Provost
by Shawna Brody
Excellent, very helpful. Thank you very much!
by Kirk Matthews
I have had 2 people try to teach me a little bit about Joomla. In some cases, they have helped. In other cases, they left me dazed and confused. This course by Richard Pearce was PERFECT to lay the foundation for learning. Now ... the info provided by others makes more sense. And this course helps to organize my thoughts and processes. This was WELL WORTH THE TIME! Thank you very much!
by James Theall
I get Joomla now. I struggled getting started and this helped me make sense of it all.
OK. I'm off to get to work on redesigning and migrating a 5 year old wordpress /alternative newspaper site.
by Peter Spencer
Fantastic video tutorials
by Gary Gruda
Enjoyed the course. I'm definitely a novice, and learned a lot. Plan on building a site soon using Joomla.
A great introduction
by Foss Uwe
Thanks a lot for this very great introduction in Joomla structure, management and behavior.
Good course for getting started
by marianne Raine
Has enabled me to start a basic website, no problems so far!
I'm looking forward to moving onto the next course and getting to grips with more complex extensions for my site.
by Jørgen Bang Hovde
I especially liked the way he didn't assume much technical knowledge, but still provided a way of skipping some "basic parts" of the tutorials if they should not be relevant for whoever is learning.
by Jim Mills
I have viewed several Joomla instructional/help videos and this video is one of the very best. The video has just enough information to help guide even the biggest novice work through the steps without overwhelming or leaving gaps of information out of the video. The video provides guidance on how to work through each step without leaving the viewer bogged down with minute details or scratching their heads wondering what to do next.
Rapid response to learning requirement
by chris white
I only have time to skim through this course prior to looking at a job offer where joomla! is the incumbent cms. I crashed through section 3 in an hour and a half.
Thanks to this excellent set of videos, my WordPress experience is now complemented by a solid understanding of joomla! both and structurally, and in management and operation.
Chapeau! I'll be recommending this, and returning to get more.
by s stewart
Really good tutorial. Very understandable and not scattered. Thanks.
by Mladen Kandic
by Robin Blind
So far, this is precisely what I need. Although I am an experienced Web (and old time, desktop style) Developer, I have struggled to understand Joomla.
So thanks! I'll keep working through this. If and when I have any suggestions to improve the course, I will share them.
