Learn WordPress, the project’s official free learning resource site, is rapidly expanding the number of available courses, workshops, and lesson plans available to the community. Since its launch in December 2020, contributors have added five full courses, more than 90 workshops in multiple languages, and 85 lesson plans for users to learn asynchronously at their own pace. The site covers a variety of topics for all experience levels, including block editor development, how to get involved in the community team, how to start publishing with the block editor, improving site performance, public speaking, and more.

A new lesson dropped this week titled How to use and Contribute to the WordPress Photo Directory and Openverse. It explains the difference between the two projects. (Openverse indexes media across the web and the WordPress Photo Directory stores images as a source included in Openverse.) The course delves into licensing, how to search for photos, and how to submit a photo for consideration.

This lesson is especially relevant since both WordPress.com and Jetpack (version 10.8+) include Openverse as a media provider. If you want to take full advantage of this integrated resource and be a part of expanding it, check out this new lesson from Learn WordPress. It’s also useful for sending to clients who are new to Openverse or using as a guide for a quick talk at a meetup.
