Your WordPress Website/Blog
WordPress is one of the most popular free and open source blogging and website publishing platforms available today. In this “user friendly” and hands-on course you’ll learn the basics of building a blog or website for your business or pleasure—in fact, you’ll have your site up and running by the end of the class. You should have some basic computer skills and a basic understanding of the Internet. The class is not designed for advanced users! Note that you must be able to access your email during the first class.
