TRAINING VIDEOS

Welcome to the CMS training videos section of the site. Please go through the videos at your leasure. This is a resource that you can refer to at anytime.

Suggestions for more videos are welcome.

You can also view the videos directly on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGEOIzbuy2s&list=PLrSRaW6yQojo061Cgup1QEmwTdg4FMJy9

I recommend viewing them in the Theatre view so you can auto play them and watch them as a whole.

Having popcorn and candy on hand is a good idea for this kind of experience.

We will be adding more videos on a regular basis.

ATTENTION PLEASE!!!!   While going through the videos, anytime I reference navigating to SITE ASSETS, please note that you will not actually see SITE ASSETS as they are not available to publishers. You will however, be able to get to all the same assets via the "Blocks, File - Folder and Links, and Pages" options. I will be redoing the videos to eliminate this confusion in the very near future.
