CMS in the Classroom

Knowledge is power. We respect that.

We know that teachers are doing valuable work with students around the world. That's why we developed CMS in the Classroom, a program that puts the powerful Joomla and WordPress content management systems into the hands of students and teachers absolutely free of charge. CMS in the Classroom is designed to help teachers incorporate Joomla and WordPress into their curriculum and instruction without spending a dime.

Why CMS in the Classroom?

  • Teachers have a ready-to-go platform for teaching web skills like HTML, CSS, PHP, FTP, SFTP, SSH business development, Internet protocols, product marketing and more  
  • Students can develop a skill set using popular, open source web technologies that will serve them long into their future
  • IT'S FREE! Teachers and students will have free sites, hosting services and training material to succeed

Getting Started with CMS in the Classroom

Step 1
Teachers simply instruct their students to individually navigate to one of the following links depending on the curriculum. 
Free Joomla Hosting
Free WordPress Hosting

Step 2 
Students fill out the form at the top of the page, then continue through checkout using their educational email address. Within seconds, they are provisioned their own Joomla or WordPress site to be used for educational purposes. 

It's that simple... and with this improved workflow based on our Free Hosting Program, there are a few clear benefits. Students are now able to leverage the capabilities of our Cloud Control Panel which allows the teachers to focus on what's important (teaching). 

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does CMS in the Classroom cost?

Nothing. Zip. Zero. The program is free of charge. CloudAccess.net cares about teaching students how to use open source web technologies.

Creating a backup is an easy process. Learn how to manage backups.
