In case you need a reminder of some of the details:
We meet online every morning for an hour, Monday-Friday on the week of your choice, and every afternoon for a check-in.
The children will be given tasks to work through independently after each morning session.
We’re going to cover:
What topic/business to create a website for
How to create a website using WordPress
Possible ways to make money through a website
Are there any other costs involved?
No, the site will be created on my server, so there is no need for you to buy a domain name or hosting in advance.
What equipment does my child need?
They need access to a computer or a laptop, and access to a decent internet connection. They can watch the live morning sessions on an iPad or tablet, but they won’t be able to complete the tasks without a computer or laptop.
How old does my child need to be?
Your child should be aged between 11-18 years old. If your child is younger, and you feel that they would be able to focus, you are welcome to enrol them in the course as long as you are able to attend the live sessions with them. They may also need help with their tasks between the sessions.
How long will the kids be occupied for?
The course runs for 5 working days, Monday – Friday.
We meet for an hour mid-morning each day, where I run through the task for the day and show them how to complete it. Then they will spend 90 minutes of their own time completing the task independently. They may decide to take longer, depending on how much research they want to do, or how much they want to tinker with their ideas.
Then we meet again mid afternoon for a Q&A session to talk through their progress and be sure that they haven’t got stuck on anything.
How many children will be in one group?
I’m committed to making sure that each child receives my attention, so groups are limited to a maximum of 10 children.
Are there any discounts for booking more than one child?
Yes, it’s really encouraging to have a friend or a sibling on a course with you like this, and I offer 20% discount on any additional child you book.
We already have a domain name. Can they use it?
The website will be built on a unique domain name, on my server so that you don’t have any additional costs at the outset. At the end of the week, I make resources available for you or your kids to move the website to your own domain name and hosting plan.
How long does the website live on your server for?
Websites are removed 2 months after the end of the course. Kids are given access to resources to show them how to move their website over to their own domain name and hosting plan if they want to keep their work or put the website live.
What if my child loses interest in the project?
The sessions are designed to be as fun and interactive as possible for the children. If they lose interest, I will try to engage them in researching their chosen topic, or exploring other online tools which they may find useful and/or fun. But ultimately, building a website isn’t going to be every child’s idea of fun.
What if my child is disruptive?
Disruptive behaviour is not acceptable on the sessions, and your child will be asked to leave the session if they cannot cooperate.
Do you teach adults?
Absolutely. Just ask me for details about my Rock That Website – an 8-week program for service-based entrepreneurs.
