Introduction to the BRICKS web site

Introduction to the BRICKS web content management system and sample exercises

Feedback from the trainees

End of Tutorial

Content: The seminar has two main goals. First, it intends to illustrate to the BRICKS Community members the functionalities and the potentialities of the BRICKS website. Course attendants may indeed discover new ways to put to full use the website's potential as a tool for communication, dissemination, discussion, and as a means to enhance the visibility of their own initiatives toward a worldwide audience. The seminar will then focus on providing the BRICKS Community members with a better practical understanding of the website's content management system, that is the software that allows the Community members themselves to add content to the website, like text, images, or multimedia objects. A visual guide on CD-ROM will be distributed.


Why should you take a closer look at BRICKS' web content management system?
It is important that all Community members possess the ability to enjoy the opportunities offered to them through the BRICKS project's website, that is, that they may autonomously publish information and communicate through the website. While the web developing staff is constantly improving the CMS interface in terms of rapidity of learning and ease of use, some may still experience some frustration. The seminar will show how easy and fun it actually is to create the expected results.
