WordPress launched a new platform, Learn WordPress which provides workshops, quizzes, courses, lesson plans, and discussion groups, from beginners to advanced users. Learn WordPress is a cross-team initiative and also a part of the WordPress.org network and features content from contributors from the WordPress community.
Workshops, quizzes, courses, lesson plans, and discussion groups
WordPress announced that the platform will be updated weekly and will focus on connecting new and existing WordPress users with the broader community. The platform also provides an opportunity to learn alongside other community members and become connected with the WordPress network.
- Workshops are practical, skills-based videos that show viewers how to do new things with WordPress, whether you publish, manage, develop with, or contribute to WordPress. Most workshops include quizzes for you to test your newly gained knowledge.
- Discussion groups provide an opportunity for further collaborative learning with participants meeting together to discuss the workshop content – they take place online, either in video calls or Slack and accommodate all time zones.
- Lesson plans are guides for facilitators to use while presenting at events or within educational environments. Facilitators will find learning objectives (telling people what they are going to learn), any prerequisite skills, assets such as screenshots and slide decks, and learning assessments.
- Courses are a series of interconnected lesson plans to be presented by a facilitator that will strategically focus on defined learning outcomes. Participants can go through these courses individually or as part of a group. After completing the learning, attendees should be able to apply their skills in the real world.
