Rhythmyx: Creating and Updating Web Content
Rhythmyx is the content management system (CMS) used by many schools and divisions to publish information on the Cardiff University web site (http://www.cf.ac.uk). Use of a CMS allows you to focus specifically on the content that you need to publish thus simplifying the process so that you no longer require an in-depth knowledge of HTML tags to create and format your web pages.
This single-session course is the "getting started" course suitable for anyone who has never used Rhythmyx before yet needs to publish information on their school or division web pages. The basic concepts of using the CMS system will be introduced along with practical hands-on training showing you how to combine text and images into newly created as well as existing pages ready for publishing on the university web site.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- create text based web pages
- update wording and formatting on your web pages
- add an existing image to a web page
- move your web page into a published state
After attending this course it may be appropriate to look at how to combine additional types of web content into your web pages as covered on the Rhythmyx: Adding Further Content Types to Your Web Pages course.
Whilst no experience of creating web pages is required, you will be expected to have a working knowledge of Windows especially use of the mouse and to a lesser extent the keyboard.
1 x half-day session - length of course 3 hours.
The cost of attendance on this session is £45 for members of staff and students of Cardiff University
Please note that the topics covered on this course are only applicable for members of Cardiff University who are required to publish information using Rhythmyx, the University CMS system. Due to the internal nature of the materials covered, bookings from anyone not associated with the university will not be accepted for any Rhythmyx courses.
