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 training in Drupal for acquiring editing rights to aalto.fi are organised in Workday Learning. It deals with elementary topics such as the basic structure of aalto.fi and how to create new content. Basic training relies heavily on independent practice on our test site. If you need basic Drupal training, please access the course in Workday Learning.

Advanced trainings occur once or 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.
