Web Content Strategy Training

In the Web Content Strategy Training, we review best practices for content writing, SEO, and web accessibility. The goal of the class is to review web-writing guidelines before you create content, and to learn how to best present your content for your intended audience.

Note- This class is mandatory for all users before receiving access privileges.

Run time: 1 hour

Basic Distribution Training

In the Basic Distribution Training, we teach users how to create web pages, news items, announcements, alerts, FAQ, and other basic content. We describe in detail how to format text, add images, create galleries, write hyperlinks, add redirects, and arrange menu items. The training includes information on creating support requests through JIRA.

Note- This class is mandatory for all users before receiving access privileges.

Run time: 1.5—2 hours

Advanced Distribution Training

In this Advanced Distribution Training, we build on the knowledge from the Basic Distribution Training. We walk users through the process of adding clinics, labs, core facilities, and other advanced content types to their site.  (If you’re not sure if you need to take this class, feel free to reach out to our team to discuss.)

Note- The class is optional for all site users.

Run time: 1:30—2 hours

In the Full Distribution Training, our Web Services instructor will combine the Web Content Strategy Training, Basic Distribution Training, and Advanced Distribution Training into one all-encompassing session. See previous class descriptions for more details.
