Join me, David F. Carr, founder of the WordPress for Toastmasters project for this getting started tutorial.
This session is particularly intended for those who have set up an account on toastmost.org or installed the software on top of WordPress but are puzzled about what to do next. Besides figuring out how to use all the agenda management goodies, a new user who is unfamiliar with WordPress has to learn their way around the system for editing web pages and blog posts.
Like giving your Icebreaker speech, you have to get started if you want to make progress. With a little coaching, I hope you to give you the confidence to take the plunge.
I’ll be joined by Stephanie Nolan, a Toastmasters volunteer who is helping me improve the documentation and training materials. I’m seeking additional volunteers who can help with those aspects or with programming, design, and simplification of the user experience.
The goal of this session is to give you everything you need to get started, while also getting feedback for improvement to the software. WordPress for Toastmasters is free, open source software. The toastmost.org hosting service is also intended as a resource for the community, with its expenses paid by the clubs who see the value of it.
These tools have been very useful to me as President, VP of Education, VP of Public Relations, and club member. I used them when leading Online Presenters Toastmasters to charter in 2017 and have built in a number of tools that are useful in the context of online meetings.
I want you to learn to use WordPress for Toastmasters productively.
