WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) with which you can create and maintain a website. WordPress started as a simple system for creating weblogs. It has since developed from a weblog program into a fully-fledged way to build a website. You can request a WordPress installation at the CIT and possibly register your own domain. For the course you will use a "practice WordPress site" and organize it according to your own wishes.
