Learn how to use WordPress, a free and popular Web design tool, to quickly and easily create attractive blogs and interactive websites.

Want to build an attractive, sophisticated blog or website—without having to learn any special coding? WordPress is the answer you're looking for! WordPress is one of the world's most popular Web design tools because it's free, it's easy to use, and it produces professional results.

In these lessons, you'll get hands-on experience with this powerful tool as you create your own WordPress site and blog. As you walk through the process from start to finish, you'll find out how to use WordPress to create pages and posts, add images and videos, change a site's look and feel, and include user-friendly features. You'll discover the ease of using WordPress design themes to express your creativity, and you'll see how much fun it is to be part of the vibrant WordPress online community.

In addition to mastering the technical elements of WordPress, you'll learn how to organise a blog or website, create appealing content, and achieve better positions on search engine results pages. By the end of this course, you'll be able to confidently use WordPress to create a blog or a personal, business, or organisational website.

Courses are delivered to you through expertly executed lessons, online instruction and interaction with like-minded students. Our courses are designed to deliver all of the benefits of studying in a classroom whilst giving you the flexibility to study at a time and place to suit your needs. You can access your classroom 24/7 from any device with an internet connection.

This course has a 3 month duration. You'll complete comprehensive lessons, quizzes and assignments before submitting your final exam at the end of the course to achieve your certificate. Courses must be completed within the 3 month access period.

In this first lesson, we'll explore the magic of WordPress! You'll discover how to use this free software to create an attractive, dynamic blog or website—without learning any special code. You'll find out what the two "flavors" of WordPress are and why we'll use the hosted WordPress.com version. Then you'll go online, sign up, and tour the WordPress Dashboard. You'll also plan your project and set goals for yourself.

What can a blog do that a website can't? Blogging's become a popular way to establish an online presence. We'll discuss how adding a blog can make a traditional website more effective. Then you'll build a blog with WordPress—by creating, refining, and categorizing posts. You'll also find out how to encourage and control visitor feedback.

Get the best of both worlds by combining a blog with a traditional website. In this lesson, you'll use WordPress to create and organize Web pages. And I'll show you how to convert your blog to a traditional website—or vice versa—with the click of a button. <A name=_GoBack></A>

This lesson's all about WordPress themes—the templates that give your website its look and feel. You'll discover how to choose a theme, install it, and tweak it.

Photos, drawings, charts, videos, and audio clips can make your website more appealing and understandable. In this lesson, I'll show you how to use WordPress to upload and insert images and multimedia files.

Make your website or blog more informative and easier to navigate with some special WordPress tools. You'll learn how to use sidebar widgets, forms, maps, and syndicated newsfeeds to make your site more useful and usable.

If your online visitors have trouble understanding or navigating your website, they'll go somewhere else. This lesson helps you pinpoint and eliminate usability problems.

In this lesson, we'll take a long, hard look at our class project and decide how to make it better. You'll create a front page featuring both static and dynamic content; add links to pages, documents, email, and other sites; and repair typos, grammatical errors, and other mistakes.

What if you launched a website and nobody came? This lesson will show you how to keep that from happening. You'll find out what makes search engines tick and how to get them to visit your pages.

Statistics are just a bunch of numbers if you don’t know how to use them. We’ll focus on how to analyze stats so you can improve your site. You’ll also find out how to tie your WordPress pages into social sites like Facebook and Twitter.

It's time to put the finishing touches on your site. This lesson includes a prelaunch checklist, so your online guests won't find any mistakes. I'll also show you how to promote the site and manage contributors.

In our final lesson, you’ll learn how to build a sophisticated form, and I’ll review all the optional upgrades WordPress offers. You’ll discover how to personalize your domain name, use your mobile phone to update Web pages, and access the files that control your site’s appearance. I’ll also examine the pros and cons of moving to the self-hosted version of WordPress.
