Adobe Contribute for Departments - Day 1

Introductory Web Development

Attend Contribute for Departments to learn how to use the Contribute software to maintain departmental websites at USD. Topics will include creating web pages and editing existing pages by inserting text and links, making lists, adding images and creating tables to better display your information. This class is geared toward beginners and covers the specifics of maintaining a website at USD.

This is the first day of a two-part class. Both sessions are required, so please be sure to register for both days (preferably within the same week). If you are not going to be maintaining a departmental website, this class does not apply to your work. If you are in Admissions, the College of Arts and Sciences, SOLES, the Schools of Business, Law, or Peace Studies, please be aware that not all of the content of this class will apply to your work, as this class focuses on the main USD templates. This class is mandatory if your department needs Adobe Contribute software installed.

Prerequisite: Assignment by your department to help maintain your department's website.
