Using WordPress to Build Library Websites – ALA eCourse

It’s been such a busy couple of weeks that I didn’t have time to post about the WordPress ecourse that Amanda Goodman and I will be offering through ALA. It starts in Jan 16, 2012 and runs for 6 weeks. Amanda and I met face-to-face for the first time at the Internet Librarian conference in October. In addition to enjoying some great food and wine, we did do a good bit of work on the course!  The course will get you up-to-speed with WordPress and all the features that can help you build a dynamic and engaging web site for your library.

Note that there’s an early bird discount if you register by December 1.

Using WordPress to build library websites

I think everyone knows that I love working with WordPress and have been teaching WordPress classes for since 2006. Kyle Jones and I wrote an ALA Library Technology Report on WordPress that was published in April 2011. An expanded & updated version of that will be published by ALA Editions in early 2012.

I’m really looking forward to working with Amanda on this project. And looking forward to helping you decide if WordPress is the right tool for your library, school or personal web site. See you online in January!
