CMS Training Resumes with “The New Basics”

Posted on 11/7/2008 4:09:55 PM

With more than 60% of our academic sites migrated, and many new web maintainers having joined us this fall, the Web Team will again be conducting training sessions for web maintainers. The first sessions take place on November 18 and November 21, 2008 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the IT Support Center training lab (Delaney Hall, Room G41).

The new training session, “The New Basics: Training for New Web Maintainers” is, as the title implies, oriented toward those who are new to Ektron. It is also oriented toward those who are working on an already-migrated site.

Because we are not training users to migrate sites, we’ll have the luxury of teaching fewer Ektron skills in more depth. (We hope that this means our web maintainers will leave feeling more confident and less frazzled than previously!) The list of topics currently includes:

  • What Ektron Is
  • Logging In
  • Working with Workflow
  • Posting News
  • Posting Events
  • Following Best Practices
  • Web Maintainer Responsibilities

We will cover some of the more advanced topics we covered in our training sessions last spring—adding new pages, collections, menus, adding new sections to a website—in a second, intermediate-level training.

You can register for “The New Basics” by filling out our training registration form. (Seating at each session is limited to 15 people; seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.)
