Creating SEO courses at Yoast – Interview by LearnDash

In November 2017, Yoast Academy took a big leap forward. Switching to a different Learning Management system, called LearnDash, was a key factor in this. Leading up to the release of our free SEO for beginners course, Justin from LearnDash and I decided to take twenty minutes to really dive into the Academy and discuss the ins and outs of how we create courses at Yoast!

Free SEO course: SEO for beginners Info

Key topics

In the webinar, we first discuss how Academy started out. Then, we go into our approach to education and learning principles: we want to create courses in which you can practice your skills and which foster long-term retention. We also explore our new free course: SEO for beginners, showing you exactly how our courses are structured. Then, we go into the assignments we check for you in the SEO copywriting course and the Yoast SEO for WordPress personal configuration review. Lastly, we discuss the nifty tool we built for those who want to buy courses for multiple people. This is great if you want to enroll several of your colleagues! You can very easily assign courses to other people in your MyYoast account. Just type in their email and they will be enrolled automatically!

What is LearnDash?

LearnDash is the Learning Management System (LMS) we use to power Yoast Academy. We have some awesome developers at Yoast, but setting up a solid courses platform is quite a challenge. Luckily, the folks at LearnDash have many years of experience doing exactly that. The fact that you can now practice writing code, the challenging sorting questions which help you memorize the steps you have to take, the clearer navigation setup we created, it’s all thanks to the LMS they provided us with. So check out that webinar to see how we can help you become the best SEO you can be. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to sign up for the free SEO for beginners course!
