Are you ready to learn how to use the new Block Editor in WordPress 5.0 to build your own personal blog, business site, or online store? Our highly-popular WordPress 101 course is all-new, completely rewritten from the ground up and expanded to 34 videos. See what’s new!
We couldn’t be more excited to announce the release of our brand-new, completely rewritten WordPress 101 course for beginners. Earlier this year, we celebrated our 10th anniversary. Since 2008, we’ve updated and re-recorded the WordPress 101 videos a whopping 25 times. But this release was different.
As you know, WordPress 5.0 was released on December 6th. And it brought some big changes to the editor… actually, a complete overhaul of the editing experience we’ve all come to know and love. The new Block Editor, code-named “Gutenberg,” introduces a whole new way to create media-rich pages and posts that simply wasn’t possible in WordPress before, without turning to third-party add-ons.
The current editor got us through the last 14 years. We want Gutenberg to get us through the next 14.” — Matt Mullenweg, Creator of WordPress
In much the same way, our original WordPress 101 course served us all well for the past ten years; nearly three million people just like you have watched our WordPress video tutorials over the years! But we felt it was time to re-think our entire course.
So, we ditched the scripts we’ve relied on and updated for the past decade, and started from scratch. A new WordPress editing experience requires a new approach to onboarding new WordPress users.
So, what’s new in WordPress 101?
In short… everything. We’ve broken the course into sections, centered around the activities a new WordPress user will want to learn first: Getting Started > Creating Content > Customizing Your Site > Exploring Blocks > Managing Your Site
The new course has been expanded to 34 video lessons, each one weighing in at no more than 5 minutes.
Plus, the first 7 videos are now completely FREE, so anyone can get a proper introduction to WordPress 5.0.
