Basic Training for Web Maintainers

Stright Hall, Room G33

This training session is oriented toward those who are new to Ektron, or those who need a refresher.

In this session, you will be introduced to Ektron (the content management system), and learn the basics of how to use it to maintain your site, from updating pages to creating a news post or calendar event. The list of topics covered includes:

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

We cover some of the more advanced topics—adding new pages, collections, menus, adding new sections to a website—in intermediate-level training.

Dates and Registration

All training dates are listed on the Web Team Events page.

Intermediate Training for Web Maintainers

IT Support Center’s Computer Lab, Delaney Hall, Room G41

This intermediate-level training is a follow up to The New Basics, and is intended for web maintainers who have already completed that workshop (or who already have equivalent skills).

During this session participants will learn:

  • How to create new pages on Ektron
  • How our current navigation design is intended to operate
  • How to properly link their new pages into the menu system
  • How to create three kinds of navigation pages: tables of contents, collection pages, and free-form navigation pages.

Note: This workshop is for websites that have not yet been converted to the new IUP website design. If your website has already been converted, you will need to attend the Intermediate Pages and Layouts Training for Web Maintainers workshop instead.
