Lynda.com Training #2: WordPress 3 Essential Training
Last month, I completed a training in iMovie and found it to be extremely helpful, even though I’ve been using iMovie for about 10 years now. Last week I decided that a WordPress training would be helpful in creating a new webpage for my class. I have to say that I am very impressed with Lynda.com and the amount of information that’s available through their site. Even though I’ve only gone through 2 trainings, both instructors were enthusiastic, easy to understand, and were extremely knowledgable about their topics, covering a great amount of detail about each application.
The author of this WordPress training is a web designer and developer named Morten Rand-Hendriksen. His examples were easy to follow. As I was watching his videos in a small window in the upper left hand of my screen, I had the dashboard open for my class webpage. This way I could change and update my page as he was teaching. If there were parts that were going by too quickly, that’s what the pause and rewind button is for. I really love learning and exploring at my own pace!
For me, this WordPress Essential Training is enough to meet my classroom webpage needs. I don’t really see myself doing anymore WordPress courses for a while. I do have some other courses in my queue, hoping that I will find time (over the summer) to complete:
- Photoshop CS5 Essential Training
- Illustrator CS5 Essential Training
- Final Cut Pro X Essential Training
