Drupal 7 & Web Accessibility Basic Training
Note: Training is mandatory for all new editors.
The Drupal 7 & Web Accessibility Training class focuses on teaching editors how to create basic pages, upload graphics, make links and use menus. Training includes an overview of the AODA and how to post accessible content. This training is aimed at employees with little previous experience with the system.
Once you complete the training, video or class, you will be eligible to take the Editor Evaluation (part quiz, part practical task). Once you have passed the evaluation you may become a Content Editor on the relevant websites.
The training is currently being offered in 2 formats:
