WordCamp Europe 2024 presentation recap

On June 14, I had the privilege to present the Training Team’s vision for Learn WordPress at WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Europe 2024. The presentation saw an engaged audience of 300-400 people in the main hall, with many more tuning in online. I wanted to document the feedback I received here for the team to consider as we continue improving Learn WordPress.

Ideas from the community

  • Show Learn content in the WordPress dashboard.
    • Hosts would love for a way to show content right there without the user having to leave their site.
  • Provide Learn content in a way that hosts etc. can add/subtract modules as needed for their use cases.
    • Building a pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party was one idea as a way to achieve this.
  • Clarify how users can get help with the content.
    • Learn could show a call-to-action “click here for help” within content.
  • Offer a glossary so that users know what to call the things they’re learning.
    • There have been previous efforts to create a unified WordPress glossary (Slack conversation) which would be great to integrate on Learn for learners.
  • Provide certifications for learning achievements.
