Interested in creating a blog or website to market your products or share your ideas? Learn how to use the self-hosted version of WordPress to build a website in this introductory course. We’ll walk through registering a domain name, purchasing web hosting and installing WordPress on a live shared hosting server (and then hide it from the search engines until launch). Students will also receive hands-on instruction with security, backups, spam-blocking, themes, plugins, navigation, video, content, social sharing buttons, contact forms, stats and syncing blog posts with prominent social media websites. Bring a credit/debit card, Wi-Fi capable laptop (or use the lab computer) and at least three domain name choices (i.e. www.mydomain.com) for your website. Prerequisite: Basic computer and internet skills, web browsing, word processing, email and password management. Please note: There are fees to register a domain name (about $10-15 each/year) and open a web hosting account (from about $48/year and up depending on the level of hosting required).
