History

A group of pilot participants had preliminary training from our initial consultants. CCSF developed a training plan through the TLC during the summer of 2009. Training sessions started in October and November 2009 and continue currently.

Trainings are reserved for those designated to create/update department and "project" sites. Individual faculty members should use CCSF Google Sites to create an instructional page. Instructors who created sites using Dreamweaver, or other html editors may continue to use them.

Q & A

Do I need an account? My supervisor/co-worker/department head already has one.

Everyone who works on the new site must have a personal account. Logins are now attached to a person, not to a site and logins should not be shared.

How to get involved

What is the process for getting an account so that I can work on the site?

1: Get an account on the system: Fill out the Online CMS Account Request Form

  • Submit your Faculty ID number and pin
  • The website url field is automatically filled in based on your directory information
  • Provide brief details about why your require access to the CMS
  • Allow 2 working days for the site admins to create your account, provide access to your program/department's CMS pages, and e-mail you log-in information

2: Sign up for a CCSF CMS Training

  • If you want more training or support, drop into the TLC lab. Lab Aides can often help.
  • Remember: so far these are for department/project/school representatives only—not for individual Faculty or Staff. A Google site built with a CCSfmail account are recommended for individual faculty/staff.
  • More information from the IT department about the CMS is available here.
