Live training

We only offer live sessions of this class once per term. You'll see the schedule on this page. If you can't wait, we recommend taking the course online and then stopping by one of our Open Support sessions in our office.

About the Instructor

This training is taught by one of our specialized Web Developers. Each individual has been fully trained in using our Content Management System (CMS) and has experience in website design. The instructor as well as all the members of Web & Digital Communications will be available for additional support and training courses.

Prerequisites

While the CMS lets you create and manage web content even if you are unfamiliar with web programming, it is important you are familiar with web browsers and word processors as the CMS uses a word processor much like Microsoft Word. If you are new to word processors or would like to get a refresher, there are a number of university services that can help. The UIT and the MSU Library both offer professional workshops on a variety of computer topics. Visit IT Onboarding or MSU Library Workshops Calendar for more information on these classes.
