New! Learn CMS on YOUR schedule

UC Learning Center logo

April 17, 2015

Ever since Web CMS training moved on-line, we've run into instances where new users simply couldn't re-arrange their schedule to make the class, normally held on Wednesday afternoons. Finally, we're able to offer a web-based version of the class, broken into two videos, which the LMS system is kindly hosting for us. What does this mean? You don't have to wait for the "live" class anymore! Instead, you have two options:

  1. Hands-on: if you would like to try out the steps as they are described, first go to the Guest ID Form to request an ID and password for the Web CMS Training Server environment. You will be able to log in and have a realistic experience of the CMS while listening to the steps described in the video. An activation email will follow notifying you with your account information and other details to get you started; OR,
  2. Just watch: if you learn better just by watching, you can immediately view Part 1 and Part 2.

Whichever path you choose, be sure to watch both videos in their entirety (a time investment of about 2½ hours); once complete, LMS will send a notification to the Web CMS Service team to confirm you've completed this first step.

Jessica offers her apologies that Morgan Freeman was unavailable to narrate the training and, instead, you have to listen to her. Alas for us all.

Document List in Beta

The Document List is the continuation of the Cataloguing options we've been working on beginning with the Event system. It will allow users to upload files using a new File asset type and have it listed based on specific metadata information. A group of users from different departments on campus have volunteered to beta test the Doc List in its current form to provide feedback on its usability and determine what changes might enhance the initially created options. If you're interested in seeing the design in its current state, take a look at the Demo in the write-up. Please note the beta test group request is now closed to new volunteers.

People Directory Updated

April 17, 2014

The People Index Page and Person Page have been around for a while now, but the technical documentation has, sadly, fallen behind the times. Some clean-up work has been done to re-write and streamline the information. As a general rule, the People Index Page should be used unless you're looking to create a directory outside of the main folder where your Person pages or blocks are saved.
