    Need to hire someone to set up a website

    I tried using the "freelancer" site, but it seems to formal. The job I need help with is not crisply defined at this point. Also I am uncomfortable with the bidding system.

    I am planning website for teaching Asian languages. This website will display the lessons with audio, text and homework. I think this is a basic CMS job with some interesting features. Features includes: membership management, lesson authoring support, test and homework forms, and some interesting rendering of text and audio for displaying asian fonts and their phonetic representations. I prefer to use ExpressionEngine with some extensions.

    I would appreciate suggestions on how to find a company or person to hire for this project.

    Thanks!

    You can also look at some LMS (learning management systems, or e-learning) applications that are already existing. There are some for many different languages and such and it should just be a matter of finding the one that fits your needs the best.

    Hi criterio9,

    Thanks for mentioning LMS, I have been googling for a couple hours and I still can get the big picture on these systems .... but there sure are a lot of them:

    Element-K - provide services to government, hospitals, etc. (no pricing)
    E-Learning - min $250 per month
    SyberWorks - Looks like a huge company (no pricing)
    IntraLearn - Hypothetically Affordable, but no pricing
    ELeap - starting a $125
    AbsorbAnywhere -
    ATutor - open source

    Each of these, and another couple dozen providers as well, has tons of features so it is really difficult to see how they all compare.

    Somehow though, I think these systems are designed for courses that are presented like powerpoint slide shows. Although that might be a good method of content delivery it is not currently the model we are using.

    But thanks for pointing me in this direction.
