Registrations now open for both WordPress for Noobs courses: 1) Online only or 2) Face-to-Face in Northfield

Tim FreelandI’m teaming up with fellow Northfielder Tim Freeland of Freeland Web Design to teach the WordPress for Noobs course. Tim’s been working with many area organizations on their WordPress-based websites. I’ve gotten to know him from his many years of community engagement, some of which he chronicles on his personal blog.

We’re now open for registrations.

The content for both courses is the same. Participants in the face-to-face course will have access to the online screencasts, webinars, and web forum.

Got questions? Contact me.

Here’s my promo screencast/video from when I last did the course in 2011:

Time for a little shameless self-promotion.

WordPress for NoobsI’m nearing the end of teaching my first online course, WordPress for Noobs.  It’s gone well so I’m offering it again, starting March 14.

  • I’ve revamped the WordPress for Noobs course introduction screencast.

    It’s an incredibly solid framework that won’t slow you down with excess plugins or custom edits. Make the changes right from the Optimisation.io and avoid bloat

    When I created the first one, the course didn’t exist. I’m now able to take you behind the scenes to show how the course actually works.

  • I’ve updated the Noobs Course Outline page to more accurately reflect what actually has happened. I’ve added a column for weeks (Week 1, Week 2, etc) to show what gets delivered and when.
  • I’ve updated the testimonials page to include comments from participants
  • The fee for the course remains $97 but it goes up on March 8 to $122.

In late October, I hosted (with a little help from my friends, Tracy Davis and Sean Hayford O’Leary,) two WordPress Q&A webinars for Northfield area WordPress users. A few days later, I attended my first Minneapolis-St. Paul WordPress User Group meeting. And two weekends ago, I presented two sessions at WordCamp MSP in Richfield.

All of which served to convince me that A) the popularity of WordPress continues to grow; and B) the demand for help in using it continues to grow.

So I decided to create an online course called WordPress for Noobs, and have it be the first course delivered by my new interactive learning platform:
