Learn Elementor - WordPress Front-End Development Course

Build the site you want using the most powerful WordPress page builder & theme creator.


Lean Elementor - WordPress Front-End Development Course is one of a number of Elementor courses on Udemy. This particular one comes in at 6.5 hours, and is taught by Andrew Williams, who has made a living teaching online since 2003.

The course covers the following sections: 

  • Designing Your Site - covers where to get inspiration, how to think about site structure, and how to choose fonts and colours. Obviously design is a huge subject, so this is only really a very high level instruction.
  • Essential Skills & Resources - covers a couple more design related subjects.
  • Elementor Back End Settings - we're into the Elementor plugin now, with a section that goes over how to set up and configure the plugin.
  • Elementor Interface Settings - we're onto the front end of Elementor now with a section that details the various aspects of the Elementor interface. 
  • Elementor Page Structure - we're about 2 hours into the course by the time we get to the Elementor Page Structure section - this is the first part of the course that actually covers building things with Elementor, specifically how page structure works - what are sections, columns, elements etc.
  • Using Templates - templates are used to create reusable pages, this section details how to create, import & export templates.
  • Theme Builder - how to use the Elementor theme builder to modify parts of the site normally associated with the theme - header, footer etc.
  • Demo Site - 1hr 40min of hands on lectures covering how to build each page of a demo business site.
As you can see, there is quite a bit of setup in the course (covering design related subjects), but the meat of the course details how to use the various aspects of Elementor. The instruction is followed by a follow through exercise where you apply the instruction learned in previous lectures.

I personally prefer courses where the whole course is a follow through exercise, but each section covers a new aspect, however everybody is different, so I can see how this setup would work well for some.

A great course covering Elementor in a decent amount of detail. Definitely one of the better Elementor courses on Udemy, it is well suited to those who like to learn up front, and then apply what they've learned, rather than those who prefer learning as they go.
