WordPress Basics (SEFLIN)

This two-part online class will be held on March 14 and 21, 2013 from 1:00 – 2:00 pm. Students must attend both sessions.

According to Forbes Magazine, “WordPress powers one of every 6 websites on the Internet, nearly 60 million in all, with 100,000 more popping up each day” (http://goo.gl/49F1U). This powerful Content Management System (CMS) allows users with little technical skill to set-up, design and manage websites.

During the course, attendees will:

  • Tour the back-end of a WordPress Site
  • Learn how to do basic editing, including adding/editing media and adding and deleting pages
  • Adding Plugins and Widgets – and explore the “essential” plugins for any site
  • Explore the administrative abilities of WordPress
  • Customize your dashboard
  • Install and manage themes
  • Customize menus and more
  • Add, edit and manage users

Between classes, attendees will each be asked to work on a web project useful to them or work within a practice WordPress site created for the class. One-on-one assistance with the instructor will be provided during this time.

This class will be delivered online. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.

Presented by: Diana Silveira, Novare Library Services

Registration deadline:  03/07/2013
