Class Description

Get the most out of Drupal by learning how to use the content management system that powers Stanford sites and another quarter million sites around the world. Learn to create and edit content, along with how to apply tags, and add menus and navigation.

Activities

Get started with content creation, formatting, and management using a mock site of a fictitious department. We will walk you through a basic content management workflow to allow you to become more familiar and help your build confidence!

With some content to work with, we will add classification to our content with tags and keywords (called taxonomy), and see how these features help our visitors (and us) easily find what they are looking for.

We will add text to our site with blocks and pages, use views to format and display lists of data, and tables to deliver a rich experience to our visitors. We will play with the display and basic content targeting to ensure visitors are not overloaded, and our new content doesn't get lost in the crowd.
