New Web Maintainer Online Training Courses and Web Workshops

Posted on 9/12/2018 3:10:22 PM

The online course “Page Layouts” is now available for IUP web maintainers. Combined with the already online “Fundamentals for Web Maintainers” course, learning to edit pages in the CMS is more convenient than ever!

Both of these D2L courses are available online and on-demand for new maintainers, or for those looking for a refresher.

The first time a web maintainer takes each course, they must take the course modules in order. Each module has required tasks to complete and a quiz to pass before D2L unlocks the next module. After passing the entire course, web maintainers can revisit any of the modules for brush-up training at any time.

Note: You must already be a web maintainer to take these courses. If unsure, please check the Web Maintainer list. If you are not listed, ask one of your site approvers to submit an ihelp ticket requesting that you be a site author or approver.

Fundamentals for Web Maintainers

This course will introduce you to Ektron, our content management system. You’ll learn the basics of how to maintain your site, from updating text and images on pages to creating a news post or calendar event.

Page Layouts for Web Maintainers

This is a follow-up to the Fundamentals course and is intended for web maintainers who have already completed that course or who have equivalent skills. You’ll learn how to write for a website, adjust what appears on a page, and make new pages. You’ll also work with collections and learn how the website’s menu system works.

Web Workshops

These face-to-face sessions offer web maintainers the opportunity to ask questions of and receive help with their site from the Digital Team. Registration is required. As these are one-on-one sessions, and to reduce wait time, we’re asking that you sign up for a time slot during the Workshop. Seating at each session is limited; seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

You should have at least completed the Fundamentals for Web Maintainers online course before attending this workshop.
