WordPress 5.0 is around the corner and should contain a major upgrade to the default post editor. Project Gutenberg and the changes that it may be bringing to the WordPress ecosystem has been a hotly debated topic over the last several months. The change moment introduces some really cool features designed to make the process of content creation easier and more flexible. But it also runs the risk of introducing a completely different user experience to a audience who may not be aware of the upcoming change.
This session will provide some guidelines for introducing change moments like the upcoming introduction of Gutenberg to a diverse audience of higher education WordPress users. We’ll talk about why change is hard for some and easy for others. We’ll also learn how to target and compose messages to specific types of WordPress users so that the upcoming change (whatever it may be) is easily adopted.
