Attention all on the west side of Portland and around the Portland Metro area. Beginning February 18 through April 8, 2015, I’m honored to be teaching an 8-week community WordPress and blogging class in Forest Grove, Oregon, on Wednesdays from 6:30-9PM at the Forest Grove Senior Center. I rarely present community-based WordPress courses in the Portland area very often, so this is a great opportunity to learn WordPress and blogging basics at your pace with an experienced instructor.
Home to the beautiful and historic Pacific University, I will be teaching a thorough overview of the WordPress publishing platform for individuals seeking to create websites for personal or professional use.
The course covers the basics of WordPress usage, features, installation, content management, site configuration, and social media integration as well as an introduction to site customization, WordPress Themes, and Plugins. I customize community-based classes like this based on the needs of the students.
The course is open to anyone. The course is ideal for writers and authors, genealogists, small business owners, personal bloggers, and those wishing to share their thoughts and skills with the world. Prior web publishing experience is not required. Familiarity with web browsers (Firefox and Chrome) and email is highly recommended. A laptop is required. Free WIFI will be available.
The course is typically $550 for an 8 week program, but to benefit and support the Forest Grove Senior Center, it is available for a special price of $300.
You may register at the Forest Grove Senior Center in person, or via PayPal on my Classes and Workshops page.
I’ve been teaching WordPress for eleven years, and web publishing since 1993. I also teach a full-credit WordPress course at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington, as part of their Web Development and Web Design degree programs.
The course is limited due to space, creating an intimate learning experience. Register immediately to reserve your spot.
NOTE: This is an in-person class, not Lorelle’s WordPress School year-long project.
