    3. You will be notified when your access is set up and will receive instructions for training.
  • Getting Started

    After you receive the email that you have access to Drupal, watch the videos on Website Help Hub Overview and Drupal Navigation. Then visit the Website Help Hub to review the Brand and Accessibility Resources and instructions for Creating New Content.

    You must also complete the Intro to Digital Accessibility Module.

  • Intro to Digital Accessibility

    Digital Accessibility means that information or communication technology (ICT) can be used by a wide range of people including those with disabilities who also may be using assistive technology. Learn more by taking this free online course [60-90 minutes to complete] created by IT Accessibility team. This course is HIGHLY recommended for all web editors using Drupal. You may need to create an account in the Professional Development Pathways system before you can access this course.

    If you have questions that aren’t answered in the training materials or just want some advice you can schedule a web consultation directly with Shelli Minton. Send a Microsoft Teams meeting request to sminton@ohio.edu. Schedule 15 minutes if you think it's just a quick question. Schedule 30-60 minutes if you think more detailed training will be required. If you aren't sure, send an email first so that it can be discussed. Make sure to include details about your request and a page URL if applicable.

Other UCM Training

  • Calendar of University Events (CUE)

    UCM is changing the way CUE access and trainings are managed. Anyone at OHIO can sign up in Localist to create events for the University Calendar. These events should be open to the public and sponsored by a university department or organization. They will be reviewed by a group officer or UCM before being approved for posting.

    If you have immediate questions, please contact Shelli Minton (sminton@ohio.edu).

  • Google Analytics

    UCM has been hard at work preparing for the switch from Universal Analytics to GA4. To make analytics easily readable for users and ensure data capture is set up to meet each unit’s needs, we are in the process of creating custom dashboards through Looker Studio, previously, Google Data Studio.
