New Monthly Website Training Session Series

Tamara Hill-Tandquist (EESC) and Victor Villegas (ECTU) have launched a series of monthly online website training sessions.

The first session, Drupal Basics 101, was presented via Adobe Connect on Thursday, April 3, 2014. The webinar covered how to create a webpage, creating links, adding photos and videos, creating announcements, and linking to your social media pages. The session was recorded and is available on the Extension Technology Help website, along with other Drupal resources.

The trainings are geared towards Extension county, AES, and program website content editors and website managers working on Extension-themed websites, but are open to anyone and no registration is required. A list of upcoming sessions and topics is included below.
