WordPress for the People

Have you ever wanted to build your own website? Have you considered writing and sharing your articles online but aren't sure where to start? Do you currently have a Wordpress site but feel lost in how to update, alter, improve, and utilize the platform successfully? If yes, then this is for you!

This 4-hour course will guide individuals and businesses interested in building a successful online presence, either as a standard website or in blogging format. Those with a business website to build and/or manage, individuals interested in writing and editing as a career, and individuals looking to build themselves as an expert in their field or business area will benefit from this workshop.

Websites and Blogs are two crucial parts of what Google and other search engines look for when determining your website or business's rating, and using this course you can improve your digital presence both as an individual and as a business. Leave this workshop with a plan for a successful website and/or blog presence, personalized for your needs and your upcoming months' content planned. We will also discuss best practices for promoting your website and blog online and ways to incorporate social media into your digital footprint. This course is designed for anyone, business or individual, who wants to learn about how Wordpress sites and blogs work and the best practices for online success.

This course is part of the BYOT (Bring Your Own Tech) Series offered by CCC. In order to successfully participate in this course, each individual will need a laptop computer or tablet that is internet accessible (which they can bring to the course), as well as a functional, personal Gmail account (not associated with another organization, such as an .edu), and an understanding of how to log in to their Gmail Account. If necessary, learners will be able to participate with a data-enabled smartphone (in case a tablet/laptop is unavailable). Learners should try to come prepared with questions and an idea of whether they need a business site, a blog, topic areas for their site or website, etc. but this is not required. There will be no required text for this course; all necessary review materials will be provided.
