Session to train staff and faculty in web content management system

A free class in Website Basic Training for UWindsor faculty and staff on Tuesday, Sept. 19, is the first of the fall semester, advises instructor Rob Aitkens.

Web development team lead in Information Technology Services, he will teach the basics of the Drupal content management system: University and legislative guidelines for posting content, as well as how to create pages and events, upload graphics, and use menus and blocks.

The training is required for all employees responsible for maintaining UWindsor websites and is valuable for those with little previous experience with the system, for those upgrading their sites from version 6 to 7, or as a refresher. It will run 1:30 to 4 p.m. in the University Computer Centre classroom. Registration is required through this online form.
