In the coming weeks, members of the Internet Technology Committee will be presenting additional information about UTMB’s new web content management system, Sitefinity. Two types of sessions are planned: a high-level introduction for people new to the system, and two ninety-minute, hands-on workshops for those who have had some initial experience with the tool or attended one of the 2015 sessions.
Here are dates and details:
1) Introduction to the Sitefinity CMS
This one-hour session will provide a general project update and overview, define roles and types of users, show the CMS dashboard and primary tools, and describe the templates, navigation and types of pages and content. It will also outline how to request a new site and direct attendees to additional online information and resources.

Levin Hall South Auditorium 2.222
The introduction session is open to anyone and there are no prerequisites or RSVPs required.
2) Working w/ Sitefinity (Intermediate Training)
Two 90-minute, hands-on training opportunities with be offered in a small classroom setting with access to PCs. Users with some prior exposure to Sitefinity will have an opportunity to be guided through the use of the tool. Reservations are required and there are prerequisites for attendance: Users should have either attended the introduction or a former Sitefinity demo or already been working in earlier test versions of the tool, and should have reviewed the training materials and instructional videos that are already online.
Initially, two sessions of approximately 15 people each will be hosted.

The content management system is part of a larger new web suite of tool and updates that were introduced in May 2015. Called the “Web Reboot,” the project also includes mobile site templates, link and spelling validation, a digital image library, new guidelines and page requirements, social media changes, and training and tutorials to support the web development community and those they serve.
