Summer is not exactly the time to think about school, for students, anyway. For teachers this is a perfect timing to work on the program, do some planning and promote the education establishment or themselves as private tutors. For promotional purposes, as always, a good user-friendly website works best.
2015 has brought some new trends and ideas for WordPress developers to create a separate group of themes that would help building amazing websites for various educational purposes, teachers, education centers etc. One of the main goals of designing such themes was to change the stereotype about education sites, and prove that they can and should be fun, engaging and creative. In the collection below we are focusing on the most recent themes that are going to help you get the vision of the perfect site for your projects and hopefully become a tool for building such.
Education Center – Training Courses WordPress Theme
This theme is a great example of a professional Education WordPress theme that is not just full of useful features, but has an appealing and engaging design. Education Center has a structure that allows displaying all sorts of information in a quick effective way. For instance, there is a separate section dedicated to Courses. Here you can list all courses and lessons available to the applicants, as well as description, prices and images. Then there is a block where you can introduce the staff (teachers) to the world either as a team or individually. All this and more is possible due to the wide range of custom elements: custom theme option panel, rating&review mechanism, powerful sets of widgets and shortcodes. Moreover, you will be able to choose among multiple layout styles with interesting animation effects.
Skillfully – a Learning Management System Theme
Skillfully is a theme for those who prefer their site look modest, informative, with nothing extra on the screen. The minimalist design allows concentrating on the blocks of information with no distraction popping out here and there. For some this concept might seem boring, or too plain, but let’s not forget that minimalism is a big trend this year. Plus the theme comes as an online computer science/web design eLearning Marketplace as default, so the graphics are corresponding.
