WordPress for Personal Websites
This 3-part workshop introduces faculty and grad students to the WordPress interface and advises on visual design decisions as they relate to template choices. It also offers the opportunity for participants to explore using WordPress hosting through the WSU site, and adding their research to Research Exchange, WSU’s institutional repository. The 3-session model allows for participants to get extra help and advice once they have started creating their sites. Participants need not sign up for all sessions, but it is encouraged.
