WordPress is the world’s most popular web publishing platform, powering over 30% of all websites. It’s open source, free to use, includes thousands of free themes and plugins and has an active community of users. This one-day course offers an introduction to this powerful and versatile technology and covers everything from the basics of web publishing upwards, aiming to provide attendees with the knowledge and skills to create, customise and manage their own WordPress website, and in the process, update their digital skills. No prior knowledge required.

– Making and managing quality content
– Working with images
– Themes and Plugins
– Web hosting options and costs
– Supervised practical exercise

– A laptop (Please note an iPad/iPhone is not sufficient for this course)

Expected learning outcomes:
Students will learn about WordPress and about the range of WordPress-based website options available, and be guided on how to decide which is best suited to their project. Students will make a simple website in a live WordPress environment (which they can continue to use beyond the course) using a selection of freely-available sample content, or their own pre-prepared material.
