WordPress is tremendous with scaling for a large audience, especially for online learning. However, unlike a typical classroom, engagement among a community is not a given. Let’s explore the tools and tactics you can use with WordPress to create an engaged community through strategic student interaction, gamification, challenges and content to keep visitors returning, growing and flourishing in your website. Not only will we explore the “how” with the plugins that achieve this, but also the “why;” strategies that actually work. Having worked with 500 members in WP Elevation (a large community member WordPress website) and over 100 members in RockStar Empires (a large community member WordPress website), I’ve quickly seen what it takes to avoid the sound of “crickets” and inspire a passionate community.
