We know that our content contributors and site managers are pulled in many different directions, and that they often need some help with web site maintenance. Whether you are brand new to OU Campus, or just need a refresher in how to make a quick change to your site, we want you to find the help you are looking for.
Our department websites are built and maintained in a system called OU Campus. All of our content contributors and site manager should be familiar with getting around in OU Campus so that they can keep their websites up-to-date. Trainings in the basics of OU Campus are given twice a month.
If you'd like to learn the basics of HTML -- what it does, what it looks like -- attend an HTML Basics Training session so that you can delve even further into customizing your department website.
If you've got a specific task that you're trying to accomplish, such as inserting an image or linking to a PDF file, the new "How do I...?" training tutorials are a quick way to find out how it's done.
In late 2012, we began transitioning websites into a new template (that transition process will continue throughout 2013). Along with this new template comes new functionality and features. We want everyone to be familiar with what the new template has to offer and to learn how to get the most out of it.
While we want our content contributors to be able to make any changes they want within the standard editor in OU Campus, from time to time, contributors may want to have a bit more understanding of the back-end workings of their website. There are plenty of resources on the internet to help contributors get their feet wet in the world of web development, and we've hand-picked a few good places to get started.
