About this class

WordPress is the premier content management system for those seeking an easy, user-friendly way to set up and maintain a website. In this class, you will learn about the basics of what WordPress is, such as what is the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org? And which should you get started with in order to build your website?

You will also learn about the technical requirements you'll need to get your website online, such as how to obtain a website domain and choose a website hosting service.

Lastly, you'll get a walk-through of a fresh WordPress installation so that you could see how easy it is to publish your first page or blog article.

The end of the Expo Line is the Downtown Santa Monica station, which is a 5-minute walk to campus.
