          About This Event

          Summary

          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.

          What you'll learn :           

              create, edit, and publish content using the WCMS

              bring common assets into your site

              use XPath to navigate through an XML document

              transform XML data into an XHTML document within the WCMS

              learn strategies for applying XSLT and XML to a Cascade Server site

              create workflows to control a review process for web documents.

              convert a traditional site to a Cascade Server site

              learn the diverse vocabulary of Cascade Server

              create and manage Asset Factories, Data Definitions, Configuration Sets, Transports, Targets,          Destinations, Blocks, Users, Groups, Metadata Sets, and Publish Sets

              create and manage static assets such as images

              create PDF, Printable, and XML versions of pages

              understand user roles

              manage multiple users

              manage user groups

              create new site structures with the Managers' Tools interface

              create a site from pre-existing templates

          What you need to know:

              design a web site using standards-compliant XHTML and CSS

              create and edit XML documents

              transform XML content using XSLT and XPath

              the organization and structure of your group's existing web site

              the business rules surrounding the publishing of content in your group's existing site

          If you don't have those skills, consider first taking the workshop:
