This professional development session provides a beginner’s introduction to the Wordpress.com website platform—how to set up a free account, how to navigate the design interface, how to upload media, how to change themes and administration options, and more—with a strong focus on what authors need from a professional website. The small size of this session (maximum 7 participants) allows for questions from each participant and in-depth answers.
This session will be run online with Zoom, using the screen-sharing function. A strong, stable internet connection is recommended.
