Web Development: Using WordPress for Creating a Website (CLSO 303)

  • Creating the basic layout of your website

Assignments due by the start of class:

  • Watch at least 1 hour of Lynda videos on the topic of WordPress. Once you’ve logged-in to the Lynda system, choose “Software” from the drop-down windows, navigate to the “W,” and select “WordPress.” You can watch an entire “course” or you can watch clips or pieces from courses. I recommend one of the WordPress Essential training videos or the Creative Portfolios video, but you are welcome to “follow your nose” and interests and watch whatever video clips you’d like within the WordPress area.
  • Write a paragraph listing at least 3 things you learned about WordPress resulting from your video. Submit a hard copy at the start of class.
