Philadelphia University offers WordPress for faculty, staff and students to create and manage their personal website. While you do not need specific skills or software, creating a site is an investment of time and effort so you will need to set aside 8-12 hours to get a basic site created and be committed to keeping it updated throughout the year.
Below is the link to the overall WordPress training hub- there are a lot of great resources which will help walk you through a self-directed training process, but keep in mind that WordPress is a very versatile platform for blogging, creating sites and managing content.
It’s best to use the WordPress training tools when you know what you are looking for and not to try to go through it as a holistic training process. You are also welcome to use additional training videos and resources that can be found elsewhere on the web.
