Web Services offers multiple trainings for the faculty and staff who work diligently to maintain webpages for the university. OU Campus - Beginner (now Omni CMS- Beginner) and Accessibility Compliance are required to maintain web editor status.
Due to social distancing requirements, all web trainings are held via Webex. Attendees will not need the application on their computer to attend. If you don't see an upcoming date for a class you would like to attend, please email us at email@example.com.
If you've logged into OU Campus recently, you may have noticed a new logo at the top of the screen.

Siteimprove is an accessibility and quality assurance checker we use to crawl the website each week to pinpoint what needs the most attention. In this course, web editors will be given access to their department’s Quality Assurance reports and learn how to view and edit broken links and misspellings directly in the CMS.
Everyone who registers for a training will receive an Outlook invitation for it a few days beforehand. If you do not receive an invitation, but believe you are registered, please email us.
All publishers are also welcome to peruse our topics covered online and re-take the courses as a refresher.
This is the first step for new content editors or content editors simply wanting a refresher course. The training covers the basics of working within the web content management system.
