Before getting access to SDL Web, you must review the SDL Web Training Videos. This series of short videos introduce the basic concepts needed to use the CMS and demonstrate how to make simple edits in the system.
The following videos were designed for editors who are completely new to SDL . The Introduction to SDL Web Video Series covers all of the concepts you'll need to become familiar with in order to successfully use the YSM web content management system.
These videos were created to replace formal, in-person training sessions. We have found that the best way for users to become proficient in using SDL Web is to get into the system and start editing. These videos provide a brief yet thorough introduction to SDL Web which can be viewed in your office when you're ready to begin making edits. Also, unlike a training session they can be reviewed at any time.
Despite discontinuing training sessions, we still believe one-on-one SDL Web support can be extremely helpful, especially when editors are first starting out. After viewing the videos below, if you would like assistance with your first edits in SDL Web our group provides two support options:
- New editors can attend office hours where they can receive help at our office in 1 Church Street with a member of the Web Group. Office hours can be arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
