In 2020, WordPress began prioritizing education as critical to the project’s future, launching Learn.WordPress to support beginners to advanced learners with free educational content. Over the past two years, WordPress’ Training team has been instrumental in building and expanding this resource with synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities, as well as downloadable lesson plans for instructors to use in live environments.
In 2022, there were 12,000 people who took a course on Learn.WordPress.org. The course catalogue has grown to include everything from getting started with WordPress to building custom blocks, in addition to 140 shorter tutorials, and a nearly continuous stream of live online workshops.
WordPress’ Training team has published an Individual Learner Survey as part of a needs analysis for the free resources available on Learn WordPress. It is the first phase in the project which aims to expand and improve the materials produced by contributors. It takes approximately five minutes to complete and will cover a few basic demographic questions, learning styles, and also gauges respondents’ interest in the possibility of a WordPress certification program.
The survey is open to all who have used Learn WordPress resources as well as those who have not yet explored them. If you have a few minutes, take the survey and send some feedback to help make the resources more useful in the future.
