    Lisa O Ireland Very informative but should be labelled 'Beginners guide to Wordpress' 2015-07-25 20:07:44
  • Anthony Goldman
    Anthony Goldman United States of America While a good video, Word Press no longer looks like the video was describing. It has been all updated, so the course was not much help. Good try though. 2015-07-23 20:07:12

    Marie Dixon United Kingdom It would have been better if the video has been in chunks so it would be easier to watch a bit at a time. 2015-06-11 15:06:23

  • Adetutu Shakirat Mebude
    Adetutu Shakirat Mebude United Kingdom This course is an easy-to-follow guide mainly for beginners on WordPress. For flexibility sake, I will encourage users to upgrade to WordPress.org where you can showcase your creativity while building on the basics learnt in this module. Thanks, ALISON. 2015-05-24 23:05:23
  • Kerry DuPont
    Kerry DuPont United States of America This was a good course for a beginner such as myself. He did speak quickly but he repeated the information often and the visual helped as well. It did seem that the quiz asked a few things that I didn't see in the videos and I wonder if I missed something, however it was fairly common sense and straightforward web site and teaching. Thank you! 2015-05-12 00:05:18
