Even if you are a complete beginner you can learn to build, design and manage a high-performance Wordpress website. WordPress powers over 20% of the web because it is an easy, flexible and powerful way to create a blog or full-blown website. Wordpress is also free, accessed over the internet (there is nothing to download), and many of the "themes" and "plugins" which power Wordpress are also free. Your instructor will provide you with step-by-step class notes along with a "student development site," equipped with everything you need to make learning Wordpress easy and visual. Text, images, video, audio, calendars, slideshows and much more are built-in to Wordpress. If you want to make a Wordpress website with your own web address, your instructor will show you how to get a privately registered domain name and web hosting for just a few dollars a month.
