I NEED TRAINING

STATUS of the Website Training Project:

  • A group of pilot participants has had preliminary training from the vendor.
  • CCSF has developed a training plan through the TLC during the summer.
  • The next training sessions will take place in January 2010 for designated Department or campus web creators and for pilots already involved. Other trainings are scheduled every month during Spring 2010.
  • Trainings are reserved for those designated to create/update department sites and these first-priority areas: Admissions and Records, Board of Trustees/Chancellor's Page, Calendar for Events, Class Schedule, College Catalog, Community Outreach, Current Students/Future Students, Faculty Staff Directory, Financial Aid, Human Resources, International Students, Library, Site Index, Student Services
  • For individual faculty web sites, a timeline will be announced late in the Spring semester, 2010. Your trainings will be held at a later stage in the project. This signup and scheduled trainings are only for Departments. Please do not sign up at this point thinking that you can create a site as an individual faculty member.

How to sign up for training:

Important: The pre-registration process for CMS training has changed:

There is now a Request for Web Content Management Account form that must be submitted a week before your training starts.

  1. Click this link to open the Request for Web Content Management Account form.
  2. Fill in your own information (you'll have to sign it after you print).
  3. Print the form with your information. Sign.
  4. If you are not a Department head or Administrator, please obtain a required authorizing signature on the printed copy of the form.
  5. SEND IN the completed form to the address on the form itself. The deadline for submitting the form is noted on the online preregistration form in the next step.
  6. Sign up for a training sequence by clicking this link. Remember: this is for Department representatives only:
    http://tinyurl.com/ccsf-cms
  7. Please make a note of your training dates and times. And remember to submit the Request for account form by the deadline noted on each training entry.

If we don't receive a copy of the form in the proper order by the deadline, you will not have an account on the CMS. And you will not have reserved a seat at the training.

WHAT TO DO BEFORE your training?

  1. Go over your website to optimize content. This means, you'll need to figure out what content you want to keep using, and what you want to discard. Use the EMG Handout and Questionnaire Optimize your Website Content . GET HELP MAKING A TEXT FILE.
  2. GENERAL PILOT DEPTS/CAMPUSES: When you've decided what content to port over, start organizing your material. USE OUR HANDY SITE MAP HELPER.
  3. SPECIAL DEPTS [SEE LIST ABOVE] have been working with EMG to organize their pages. You should make a list of your current pages on the Content Migration Map.
    • First locate where your department or area will be found within the new CCSF web hierarchy.
    • Then list the URLs [http://www.ccsf.edu is the URL of the CCSF main page] of those pages you will keep and incorporate into the new system. This will be a terrific check off list for you as we move forward.
  4. Take a look at some tutorials on the Day Communiqué site .
  5. Remind ourselves how this will look so much better and be so much easier for folks to navigate and search!
