Buddypress for music education
The busy social musical bees in our IC247 programming team have been working away on some new music education Buddypress Plugins for some of our clients WordPress powered websites.
Music students who learn with these musical clients will soon be able to log-in to the Buddypress system (even with their Facebook or Twitter accounts), which is styled just like the WordPress website, and take part in lessons via live stream webcasts, upload and share work, join groups and forums and study with their colleagues and teachers no matter where they are, in real time.
Buddypress can be a bit tricky if you are going to use it as a plug-in for certain WordPress Themes so be careful. Once you have it installed correctly (talk to one of the IC247 team for help via the contact form here), the variety of different options and scope via other plug-in integration like Paypal/pay per credit card, newsletters, social media log-in capacity make it a brilliant social system which can be tailored to fit your project.
Here are some neat example site links via Wikipedia already running with Buddypress and below you can watch a Buddycamp video with Cyri Jones from Vancouver 2012
