CMS training

All administrative offices and departments at Oswego are encouraged to have a website through oswego.edu. Editors must attend an hour introductory training session before they are given access to Drupal.

Schedule a Training

Contact Kelli Ariel at kelli.ariel@oswego.edu to set up a training session by appointment. 

Session Types

Introductory session

Training sessions will introduce you the the Drupal editing interface where you will learn to log in, create and edit pages in our CMS (content management system), upload photos/videos, link to documents and web pages, format page styles and restructure your navigation and touch on layout templates. You'll be set up with an editing account before the session.

Component/layout session

Drupal offers flexible, responsive layouts for your content, as well as stylized components for featured content. This session is for editors who have already attended the introductory session and are looking to take their pages to the next level.

Content development one-on-one

Content is king. Often it’s not the design that makes a great website but the content that’s displayed on it. Visitors come to your website for information, but what information should you be displaying, where and when? What’s the best way to present it? Make an appointment and we’ll discuss the finer points of your office/departmental objectives and user’s tasks to align your business goals with your website.

Does your site need an editor?

If your office has a website that requires minimum editing throughout the semester (2-3 edits a month or less) we recommend using our maintenance request form. Place a request to update existing pages and the Web Team will take care of it for you! Requests are usually fulfilled within a couple hours, but that may depend on the length and complication of the request.
