Web Training Dates and Times

Strategic Marketing and Communications offers monthly training sessions on our supported systems and bimonthly open, drop-in hours for additional instruction and one-on-one guidance. Please see below for dates, times and sign-up instructions.

Cascade CMS

Cascade is the CMS (content management system) that Chapman uses to update the main WWW website. All users of this system must complete the 3-hour training. The request should come from the key person in the school/dept that owns the part of the website they intend to update. In addition, users must attend a separate 1-hour Accessibility presentation (see next section) soon after completing the CMS training.

Training dates for Cascade CMS for Fall 2019 are listed below. They are held in a DeMille 100 on the Orange campus, unless otherwise noted.

  • Friday, September 6th (1 pm – 4 pm)
  • Tuesday, October 1st (1 pm – 4 pm)
  • Friday, November 1st (1 pm – 4 pm) – CLASS IS FULL
  • Tuesday, November 5th (9am – 12noon)
  • Tuesday, December 3rd (9 am – 12 noon)

To sign up for CMS training, email mthomas@chapman.edu with the name, email of the person who needs training, and include which section of the website is needed (URL of section is fine). If you are a student please include your direct supervisor’s name and email  and CC them on the request.

Accessible Web Content (for Cascade CMS Users)

All Cascade CMS users, web authors, must attend the 1-hour presentation to understand how the content they add to their webpages, or linked videos, can be made accessible so that all of our website visitors, regardless of how they access the internet or browse websites, can read and use our webpages.

They are held in Leatherby Libraries, Room 305, unless otherwise noted.

  • Friday, October 18 (11 am – 12 noon)
  • Wednesday, November 6 (11 am – 12 noon)
  • Friday, November 15 (3 pm – 4 pm)

For more information on the above, email mthomas@chapman.edu

Accessible Documents (PDF and Word)

Like webpages, PDFs and Word documents that are linked from webpages, or sent out as attachments in emails, must be made accessible. Training on how to do both is available through IS&T. Register for Accessible Document Training.
