Creating an online-learning platform ?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I'm a language teacher, which means no programming or coding skills, but eager to learn.

I've spent the past day or two learning on how to create a website, domains, hosting and all that and there are a lot of tutorials on how to use WordPress and plug-ins like the Elementor which is quite easy to use and doesn't require much coding knowledge. Most of them focus on how to make stuff pretty and I got that part.


What do I need to use to create a database, so that people can register and then they get assigned an educational package based on their choosing or a diagnostic test. My web-page won't be that much complicated regarding graphics, but I am going to use a lot of layers, and it would be great if a person could log-in and continue where he stopped, if the page tracked his results, etc. Could somebody point me in the right direction, which tools do I need to use? Are there any tools like WordPress for this type of programming?

You need to learn what is called 'server side programming'. There are many options inlcuding, PHP, JS, Java, .NET, Python with Django ... and more. So you have to learn the webstack firset:

  • HTML5

  • JavaScript

WordPress is written using PHP as the scripting language. Just like WordPress, PHP is also an Open Source. PHP is a server side programming language. When a user requests a web page that contains PHP code, the code is processed by the PHP module installed on that web server.
