To take this course, you'll need:

  • A computer (Windows, Mac, or Linux) with Internet access
  • Any modern web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, or Safari)
  • The latest self-hosted version of WordPress (NOT installed on your own webhost
  • A desire to learn!

IMPORTANT: This course assumes that you already have WordPress installed on your own web hosting* plan. Most web hosting providers offer simple one-click installations for WordPress. Some may even do it for you. Ask your web hosting provider for more information!
