This is our most up-to-date WordPress 101 course, completely rewritten for the all-new ‘Gutenberg’ Block Editor in WordPress 5.0 and up.
Since 2008, we’ve updated the WordPress 101 video tutorials with every major WordPress release. If you are using the Classic Editor Plugin, or WordPress 4.9 or older, please check out the WordPress 101 Classic course instead.
By the end of the WordPress 101 course, you’ll know how to use WordPress to build and manage your own blog or website. You’ll learn how to use the all-new Block Editor to create media-rich custom layouts. And you’ll be comfortable adding images, video, PDF files, and using the Customizer to personalize the design of your site.
You don’t have to learn WordPress alone! When you take this course, you’ll also be able to ask questions and get answers to all your WordPress questions directly from Shawn and our other WordPress experts.
Each video tutorial builds on concepts from the one before. So, we recommend that you watch the videos in order. But you’re more than welcome to pick and choose, and when you need a break, just pause and then pick up right where you left off.
To get started, simply scroll down and watch the first seven videos for FREE. When you’re ready to unlock the rest of the course, buy an All-Access Pass and you’ll get instant access to every course on this site!

Very good overview to specifics format here. Much better than just skipping around on topics
Finally, the cloud has lifted!
By: David Freeman
The information presented and the style of presentation have clarified all of the roadblocks that I have encountered to date. Yesterday I imagined being forced to give up on site development or hire an expensive tech expert. Today, I have a perfectly clear understanding of the functionality of my new WP site. Thank you! I look forward to future lessons.
I finally get it!

This is a great tutorial for anyone that is just beginning! With no experience, it took me step by step, at a level I could understand. Great teacher!
Very Helpful Tutorials
By: Mike Neighbors
The lessons were very helpful in understanding what WordPress can do and how to use it. I would recommend them to anyone getting started. I’m sure I’ll be referring to them again as I begin building my first site. The explanation of blocks in the Gutenberg editor was especially helpful.
