Though it began as a blogging platform, WordPress has evolved into a full content management system powering everything from personal pages to campaign websites to major news portals. It’s been embraced by developers and designers all over the world, and as of October 2013, 20% of the internet is powered by WordPress – that’s more than 71 million websites using WordPress!
On top of that, in 2014 25% of all new websites will be powered by WordPress. This is because WordPress can support a simple blog, or a Fortune 500 company website with millions of visitors a month. It can be whatever you need it to be.
So whether you need a simple site for your business, want to start a blog or just want to build a website, we can show you how to use WordPress in the completely overhauled HOW Design University Course, 28 Days to Your First WordPress Site.
In just four weeks—and about 30 minutes a day—you’ll build (or update) your WordPress site. Sign up now for the next session of the course that begins November 4th!
In the four weeks of WordPress guru Jesse Friedman’s 28 Days to Your First WordPress Site online course, students will learn the basic skills needed to create their first WordPress website. Students will learn everything from creating an account on WordPress.com (see this in action in the video from the course below), then later installing WordPress on a server, adding content, and installing themes and plugins. By the end of this course students will have a strong understanding of WordPress and content management, not to mention an actual WordPress-powered website of their own!
Most of the lessons in the online course come in the form of video. They vary between 5 and 25 minutes and walk you through everything you need to know. This course is designed to give you the foundation you need to create a business or personal website using WordPress and the tools that are out there and available to you.
