WordPress for Beginners

Instructor: Darcy Christ
Date/Time: May 7, 2 – 5pm & May 14, 2 – 5pm
Venue: DM Lab

This workshop will help anyone who needs to establish a website to get started quickly and little effort. Darcy Christ, the Digital Generalist at the JMSC, will provide a clear primer on how to develop a straightforward and effective website, using WordPress.

WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world, supporting over 60 million websites, including some of the top websites. Its success lies in its ease of use and simplicity to develop.

This course will cover how to create a new site, add users, plugins and make basic changes to the themes. We will also provide an easy to understand approach to developing content that is effective and maintainable.

All websites will be created using a free WordPress.com site, which can later be migrated into faculty servers.
