Online Courses

We’ve all been there – whether it’s the blank piece of paper or the blank computer screen. We have the tools, some skills in using them, but where do you start? What do you write? What do you draw?

This is why sharing on social media is so popular, you just click a “share” button. Anyone can do that.

Creating real, worthwhile content is a lot harder. And that is what these courses will help you do.

How to grow a Gardening Journal and Blog for avid gardeners, and activist gardeners, to keep records of the garden, share with others, and maybe grow a following.

How to build a Memoir or Family History website using WordPress to publish your memoirs or family history and manage who gets to read, contribute and comment.

How to manage your bowls club website for volunteers and management on the implementation of technology including membership database, websites, email and social media into your club or non-profit organisation.

It’s the content and message of websites that matters. The technology and code are just the tools.

In these online courses I’ve boiled down many years of experience designing websites to provide you with the tools and guidance you need to create or manage your own website and online communication.

These are not technical courses. There are lots of courses around about using WordPress and other systems to create websites, but having those technical skills can still leave you wondering where to start. 

These courses are to help you gain control of your content and make the best use of technology. They are tailor-made to fit your circumstances and include the opportunity to interact and ask questions. 

All courses include a members discussion forum so you can also share experiences and ideas, and learn from each other.
