CMS and Backend Set up.

CMS (Content Management System) set up. Using WordPress for organisational reasons as well as Security Reasons. (While this may at first seem counter-intuitive) It is actually more secure & cheaper than writing a custom CMS (As It is being patched and updated irrespective of this websites development). With our small numbers we would not be able to focus on CMS updates as well as the Course Content.
