WordPress online course versus face to face training. What is the best way to learn WordPress? It depends on several factors as everyone learns differently. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of completing a WordPress online course versus face to face training.
Pros and Cons of a WordPress Online Course
The beauty of WordPress is that there are plenty of free resources available on the internet. Once you decide between wordpress.org versus wordpress.com, you can watch hours’ worth of YouTube tutorial videos or read online guides. A WordPress online course gives you the flexibility of learning WordPress in your own time and pace. If you are more independent and enjoy the self-learning process, an online WordPress course could be ideal for you.
A WordPress online course may not be for everyone. If this is the first time you are getting into WordPress, you may feel overwhelmed with the amount of resources that are out there. A common issue with an online course is that you may not have someone that can help with your immediate questions. It is really up to you when it comes to how you want to learn WordPress.
Pros and Cons of WordPress face to face Training
Face to face WordPress training gives you that human touch which is often missing when you do an online course. The training can be tailored if you only want to learn specific concepts or if you want to learn at a certain pace. One aspect that people really enjoy about face to face training is that there is more room for discussion during the session. Overall, face to face training gives you a traditional form of learning that many people are accustomed to.
The negatives of face to face training is that sometimes the trainer may not be the best fit for you. Also with face to face training, there is a paid element and booking a lot of classes can add up in costs. However, a lot of people really enjoy the face to face side of training as a starting point to learning WordPress.
What type of WordPress training do we recommend?
Honestly, the best approach is a mixture of both. Learning WordPress is a continuous process and we recommend starting with a face-to-face beginner’s course to learn the fundamentals first and then moving onto the additional online courses. The online course supplements your initial knowledge and develops your skills in the long run.
We have a very popular WordPress beginners course available at our Auckland office. For $450 (excluding GST), get 4 hours of one-on-one WordPress training. The course covers the fundamentals of WordPress such as WordPress setup, basic content management, WordPress plugin management, and search engine optimisation.
