Ready to get started with your site, but not sure where to begin? The WashU Web Theme guides and tutorials are a great place to start. However, you’re not in this alone!
WashU Web Theme training sessions and office hours are typically offered monthly and alternate between the Danforth and Medical campuses. You’re welcome to attend a session on either campus. If one date doesn’t work for you, hop on the MetroLink for a quick ride to the other campus!
Group training sessions
We highly encourage all new WashU Sites users to join us for a group training. In this 90-minute class, you’ll learn about important features and settings for building your site, as well as tips to take your site to the next level. Topics include adding pages; basic content editing and formatting; adding images, video and other media; and editing the header, footer and menus. We will also begin to explore more advances features of your site, such as forms.
Introducing! WashU Sites Office Hours
These open work sessions are your opportunity to receive one-on-one assistance in a group setting. Attend if you’d like to meet the support team and other WashU Sites users; learn how others are using WashU Sites; share ideas, lessons learned and struggles; tell us what you would like to learn; ask questions about your site; or work through specific problems not covered in the WashU Web Theme training.
Web accessibility series
The WashU Web Accessibility Users Group meets to share knowledge about standards and best practices for creating and supporting web-based content that’s accessible to people with disabilities and those using assistive technologies. Each month, a speaker presents on a different web accessibility-related topic.
While we hope that everyone will take advantage of our group training and open office hours, we realize there are some cases when a one-on-one session makes more sense, such as:
- You have one or more very specific questions.
- You tend to learn better in a one-on-one setting.
- Your site was created before August 2017, which means it’s in another theme.
- You cannot make it to a group training or wait for the next one.
