Areas of Responsibility

You can find our current list of Faculty Program Members here, and they oversee four broad areas of responsibility in the Faculty Program. Volunteers can take part in any of these as suited to their area of expertise:

Content Creators
Content creators are people who contribute new content to Learn WordPress. This can be in the form of lesson plans, tutorials, courses or online workshops. Content creators can write lesson plans, run online workshops, record tutorial videos, write tutorial scripts, edit tutorial videos, or perform any other task related to content creation.

Editors assist with editing content created by the content creators. This can mean testing content or editing for accuracy, grammar, instructional effectiveness, accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (, localizability, SEO, or anything else that helps to improve the content that is created.

Subject matter experts (SMEs)
SMEs work with content creators and editors to provide expertise in their relevant subject area to ensure that the content is accurate and complete. Ideally, content creators would work with an SME from the very beginning of the creation process for any piece of new content.

Administrators perform the management and operations work involved in the Training Team and Learn WordPress. This involves things like task and project tracking, facilitating meetings, taking notes in meetings, vetting new applications, managing the Help Scout queue, and anything else that keeps the wheels turning.

This was originally proposed and discussed in February 2022.
