Welcome to the WordPress for beginners course! at the bottom of the page, you can see all the lessons in this course. Click ‘Next’ to begin your first lesson.
A lesson consists of instructional videos, reading materials, and quizzes. Every lesson starts with one or more videos in which we discuss the most important information. There will be screencasts as well, in which we take you by the hand and show you around in the WordPress backend. We advise you to first watch the videos and then read the accompanying text. Not only to improve learning retention but also because we explore topics more broadly in the reading materials sometimes. We’ve also created a list of terms, which we advise you to keep within reach throughout the course.
Throughout the course, there will be quizzes that test whether you have mastered the subject. A score of 80% is required to pass each quiz. However you can always retake a quiz to achieve a better score and further your knowledge on the subject.
Under the course title, on the top left hand side of the lesson pages, there’s a bar that shows your course progress. Some modules will take more time than others. We’ve indicated an estimated reading time below each PDF file, to help you plan things efficiently.
Finally, if you successfully finish the whole course, you’ll receive a certificate and some fundraising credits, which will help you vote on your chosen charity to receive donations.
