Blogs and Websites

WordPress is a tool used to create interactive websites that contain blogs, information pages, and apps. This is so simple anyone comfortable with a computer can create them, but can also be as complex as you would like. For example, these sites can range from a simple site with just one page of information, to a site with a blog, information about a course and assignments, connections to social media, and feedback forms for comments or data collection or surveys.
