*** ALL LECTURES ARE IN HIGH DEFINITION (HD) ***

In my more than 35 years of formal teaching experience, I have found that the best approach to teaching was for the teacher to place himself at the desk of and in the role of the student. And, to teach in a manner imaging that he himself is the student.

Some instructors teach over the head of the student. Not all students are the same. Yet, it is the responsibility of the teacher to find a way to reach students who "just don't get it." Indeed, the teacher should sweat over finding a solution to reach that student. If necessary, lose sleep over it. Then when the light bulb in that students head "turns on" then there is the reward!

Instructor Biography

R. Jerome Harris, Expert IT Instructor

I am an Instructional Systems Developer (ISD) with over 35 years of course development and teaching experience. He's been creating and building WordPress websites for over 14 years for myself and my many clients. I also have many years of experience with HTML coding, CSS, Graphics Design, Affiliate Marketing, and Search Engine Optimization. I have IT certifications from Microsoft, Cisco, Citrix and Novel.

Five years ago, I thought I knew everything about WordPress. After all, I had been one of its biggest fans since its beginning in 2001. Then, I discovered what WordPress really is. It is not just a cool easy-to-use and powerful Content Management System (CMS) that everyone was beginning to recognize and use to put up blogs.

WordPress is an art as well as a CMS. The meaning of this important idea cannot be given in a few words or sentences. But the meaning will become very clear when you take my course.

Albert Einstein once said, “Make things as simple as possible but no simpler." It is a very good point and it is the way I teach.

Many courses in WordPress go out of their way to make things as difficult as possible. Others oversimplify the material and leave only sawdust. Very few courses can sail the narrow channel between being too hard and too easy. I produced this course in a manner in which I placed myself in the role of the student and with the mindset of: “How would I want to be taught?"

I hope you will find my WordPress course is one of those rare courses with just the right touch. I think it may be because I did more than create it; I bled over it. My soul is in this course.
