Cascade Server is Indiana University’s Web Content Management System (WCMS). Maintaining content in a WCMS doesn’t require any knowledge of web design languages or standards. Using Cascade Server, a site manager can put the power of editing content into the hands of content experts, and focus on maintaining the structural and visual aspects of a site.
Cascade Server: Site Managers is a two day, twelve hour workshop that will teach an experienced web designer everything they need to know to start creating a working site within Cascade Server.
Before coming to the training, a Site Manager should have an intimate working knowledge of their group’s website including a knowledge of at least XHTML, CSS, and transforming XML documents into XHTML using XSLT. Day one begins an in-depth look at the process of converting an existing web site into a Cascade Server site, beginning from nothing and finishing with a functional, albeit rough, site. Day two focuses on refining the site using Data Definitions, Workflows, multiple publishing configurations (PDF, HTML, XML, RTF, etc.), as well as setting up a site using pre-defined templates.
This workshop is not intended for novice web designers as a deep understanding of XHTML, CSS, and XML use and syntax is expected of all participants. An understanding of the structure and the inner workings of your group’s existing web site is helpful, but not necessary.
There are no upcoming dates for this event.
