On Wednesday, we delivered a mini-course entitled “Getting Online with WordPress” at the St. Croix Landmarks Society Research Library & Archives! Wordpress is now the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world. It is “Open Source” – developed by the tech community; it’s free, and WordPress allows just about anyone to create a web presence without coding or programming experience.
Everyone enjoyed being a part of the training – so much so that according to our exit surveys, the group wanted even more. We will plan the course to include an optional breakout session as a “part 2” held consecutively in the future.
Event co-coordinator Naeemah Legair, who is the Communications Intern for St. Croix Landmarks Society, also enjoyed our brief presentation of the viNGN story, which began in 2010 and continues with the launch of the nation’s only fully interconnected, 100% fiber optic network serving a jurisdiction among all 56 U.S. states and territories: “The fiber optic network that we now have is truly something valuable that we must take advantage of!” she stated.
We were pleased to issue 10 certificates and share resources that will enable attendees to go further in creating their own web sites and blogs with WordPress!
