My client would like some information on costs for an online educational course directory.
I want to put together a basic online directory of educational courses. This means I need a site which lists schools and individual courses.
Users should be able to view, search and filter for courses based on variables.
I want to show Google ads banners
Users should be able to sign up to see certain bits of information(this may be free or a paid service).
So what I would like is a list of my options. I imagine it splits into three types...
1. Entirely custom build - If so what is the rough cost and options.
2. Adaptation - a load of elements off the shelf which then need to be customised (i.e. wordpress, a theme and then some work). In this case I would lie to know what platforms are good for this and some theme options.
3. Entirely off the shelf. Such as edirectoy.com. In this case I want to know the cost (to buy and/or per month/year). The ones I've seen seem expensive.
