Get professional advice

If your problem requires face-to-face assistance, come to our Drupal clinics!

The Drupal clinic is organised biweekly on Teams. In the clinic anyone can come and ask about web editing and get help with issues. Check our Teams channel to book a time slot for the clinic.

Drupal trainings provide general guidance

For more general guidance on web editing, come to our Drupal trainings. The trainings have two levels, basic and advanced. Trainings are a good steppingstone for anyone who hasn’t gotten any previous training in aalto.fi editing and Drupal. 

Basic trainings are organised as needed and deal with elementary topics such as the basic structure of aalto.fi and how to create an article and event page. Basic trainings rely heavily on independent practice on our test site. If you need basic Drupal training, please contact us via methods described above.

Advanced trainings occur twice a year and are useful for editors who already know the basics of Drupal and want to deepen their skillset.

Stay informed through web editor meetups

The web editor meetup occurs twice a year and gives both a review of recent developments at aalto.fi and insights about upcoming development. The meetup is also a platform for discussion and gathering feedback from editors, which will be used to improve the website and its editing functions. It may also, from time to time, provide basic advice around a current topic in web editing.
