wordpress-pic-1Looking to create a fully functional website for yourself or your business?

Perhaps you have a site already, but it is outdated or managed by an expensive consulting company? This class can help.

By the end of the class, you can have your own brand-new, modern website up and running, and will be able to manage the site yourself without bringing in an expensive consultant.

Whether you’re a business person or a blogger, this class will give you the tools to build your own website, using the popular (and free!) WordPress platform.  Ama Okoro, instructor

About the instructor:  Ama Okoro holds degrees from Pennsylvania State University and Seattle University School of Law. Over the last 5 years, she has run an independent web design and consulting company, SeattleWebd.com, which focuses on WordPress site creation. She primarily works with individuals, small businesses and nonprofits to produce their website visions.

You may have heard of WordPress being used for blogs, but it can do much, much more.  In this class, you’ll learn:

  • how to design your own complete website with easy-to-use tools (no HTML coding skills required!)
  • what templates and images are available to you, and how to use them
  • how to pick a domain name (www._____.com) and help search engines find it
  • the basics of e-commerce: making it possible for customers to shop & pay online
  • what WordPress plugins and widgets are, and how to use them
  • for people with HTML or coding experience: ways to add custom code to your site
  • tons of other stuff about WordPress, the web, and online business

Note: Our WordPress classes are held in a regular classroom (not a computer lab), using an LCD projector hooked up to a laptop.  Students can either bring their own laptops to work along, or simply watch the presentation and take notes.  You may also want to bring an extension cord.  (Holding the class this way allows us to keep the tuition about half the price it would be, if we held it in a computer lab.)  An online connection will be available for those with laptops.

Looking for step-by-step WordPress training? In this Seattle WordPress class, you’ll:

  •  learn how to create your own WordPress website from a skilled, experienced instructor.
  •  save hundreds of dollars compared to the tuition of some other classes.
