Updated CMS Web Guidelines

The CMS Web Guidelines have been updated…

Revised Web Page Manual, Oct 11

Welcome Back Norskies!

This will be an exciting year in, among other places, the area of instructional technology!  Now is a good time to review the basics, brush up on a few skills, and learn something new.

Today, you will have some time to get familiar with the new house (network) we’ve moved into, find and unpack your things (files and tools), and get acquainted with the new residents (Office 10 and GoogleApps).  Don’t worry about getting to everything–pick what’s most important for you right now; you can always come back later.

The new staff handout with all things technology.  Even if you’re a veteran, this is a great review.

Here’s a list of things to work on or try today, and some resources to help below:

Google Apps:

Office 10:

CMS Helpful Hints

Here are a few helpful links from our work in building web pages today…

  • Make images web-ready with Picnik
  • Search for copyright friendly images at CreativeCommons.org
  • Find open source, copyright friendly clip art at OpenClipArt.org
  • Download all Office clipart at Microsoft’s website
  • Use Google’s advanced search and select items Labeled for Reuse under “Usage Rights”
  • Picasa, under the Start menu on your computer, is a great tool for organizing and editing photos–even create a collage!

Don’t forget, you can search the blog for “CMS” for all entries regarding Web Page training at any time.
