I will be teaching a WordPress Introduction college course at Portland Community College in Beaverton, just west of Portland, Oregon, starting April 3 – June 12, 2013. The course is a hybrid online course meetings Wednesdays from 6-9PM with a minimum of two hours online per week.
Called “CMS Website Creation: WordPress,” this 3 credit college course is an introduction to WordPress and part of the web design and development degree programs at PCC.
Unlike the slow pace of my WordPress continuing education course, this is a fast-paced college course that requires familiarity with HTML, CSS, web browsers, and search engines.
The course explores the basics of WordPress functions and features, ideal for students as well as business owners and employees responsible for managing websites and web publishing.
Topics include WordPress basics, content structure and organization, social media integration, WordPress Themes, WordPress Plugins, and management of a WordPress site.
Registration is with the college directly or online through PCC Registration and requires registration fees and paperwork in addition to the course fees. Remember the course name is CMS Website Creation: WordPress and the class number is CAS181W.
You will find more information on this course and other courses I teach such as WordPress college degree courses and continuing education courses, and family history blogging in Classes and Workshops.
This is the first time PCC-Rock Creek is offering this course so expect it fill up fast.
