  • Create and update content (pages, blog entries, photos etc) in WordPress quickly and efficiently
  • Discover different themes, what they are, where to get them, and how to customize them

Prereqs & Preparation

This is a beginner to intermediate course which is designed to be helpful to those who have never seen WordPress before or those who have been using WordPress but without a formal understanding of the mechanics behind it. Some basic knowledge of navigating websites is the only prerequisite. Bring a paper and pen for notes along with good questions. This class is a broad overview with time for answers on each topic. This class includes a working session, so a laptop is required if you would like to work along.
School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.
