Creating a web site for beginners with Wordpress.
Some previous experience of using a computer is essential.
What Will I learn?
Whether you already have a site and want to manage it properly or are starting completely from scratch, this is the course for you. We’ll create a website in the classroom from the beginning and be able to customise it to suit your needs, as well as looking at lots of options for further developing your site after the workshop.
Subject Contents/Topics to be covered
You will learn how to:
Apply an attractive design using easy templates
Set up and run a great website of your own
Add content, images and videos
Look at adding structure and navigation menus
Add contact forms and maps
Add widgets and features for social networking
Track visitors and understand website traffic
We’ll also look at learning to add other features and functionality you need to run and develop a fantastic website
We’ll also look at how you can get your own domain name
The tutor will offer carefully designed tasks where you will be able to practise using your WordPress and set up your website. The tutor will also be able to assess your progress through visual results and your understanding of the course material and will offer feedback on your website to help you improve. By the end of the workshop you should have made significant progress improving or setting up a website.
Classroom tasks will be set during lesson time and for further study at home. Assessment will be based on completion for these tasks and your ability to demonstrate knowledge through discussion and observations.
Additional Costs to Students
You may wish to purchase a domain name and upgrade your WordPress to allow you to use plugins and other features not included in the free version. Prices typically range from between £36.00-£240.00 per annum. However, upgrading is not essential to completing the course.
What Extra Work Do I Need to Do Outside the Classroom?
We recommend that you continue developing your website after class in order to keep the content updated and progress your learning.
Equipment Materials to be brought to the First Meeting
A laptop will be supplied for you at our centre. It is recommended that you bring any content (text & images) you’d like to put onto a website with you on a USB stick. A pen and notepaper is recommended to help you make notes.
