Four unique perspectives of delivering WordPress course elements will be revealed by our presenters:

  • Cogitate on JIBC's use of WordPress as a platform for small/short open courses, resources, and community sites (Tannis Morgan)
  • Check out a TRU conference follow-up site and learn how a novice developer stumbled into several common WordPress traps and dug himself out of them (Troy Welch)
  • Reflect on JIBC's experiences (the good and the bad) of managing WordPress sites through LearnDash (an LMS plugin) (Melanie Meyers)
