Web Publishing 101

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching, in partnership with Think New Orleans, is pleased to host a Web Publishing 101 workshop.

In post-Katrina New Orleans, civic organizations are playing an increasingly important role in the recovery and rebuilding process. This workshop series aims to empower civic groups by providing access to basic web publishing tools.

This workshop will introduce attendees to publishing on the web using the WordPress web site management system. WordPress is a user friendly web publishing system that creates a web site that acts as a web newsletter and also an email newsletter.

This workshop is open to to all Xavier faculty, staff and students as well as the general public. Even if your idea for a website is not particularly "civic" in nature, you are still welcome to attend. This workshop is not oriented to commercial or business projects.

Attendees will be provided with a WordPress based web site as part of the workshop. Please allow two business days after the workshop to register and establish your website. (Converting an existing web site may take slightly longer.)

Note: This is the first workshop in a series. Future installments will focus on more advanced web publishing topics such as podcasting and will build on the knowledge from Web Publishing 101.

To register: No need to RSVP at this time -- just show up.
