Prerequisite: Plone 4 Basics - Pages, Links, Images & Video or experience equivalent to the course outline

This course covers the basic tasks needed by contributors if they wish to create an Event or a News Item for their UofL site, via the Plone 4 Content Management System. The materials and step-by-step instructions are aimed at a non-technical user. Participants will learn how to create and edit content for Events and News. We’ll practice these skills using Plone’s TinyMCE visual editor. Next, we’ll go one step further and learn how to add an image to the event & news story, by exploring folder creation and uploading photos that are ADA compliant. As with the other ‘Basic’ Plone courses we’ll cover saving, previewing, and publishing your work… all new processes when using Plone 4. Come join us as we play in the Plone 4 sandbox!
