Office of Communications

Website Training

Like the university itself, the HPU website is growing every day. Because we have over 150 sub-sites, we are proud to offer training for department members that are willing and able to take responsibility for basic site edits and content updates. Having so many site administrators helps to ensure that all information is up-to-date and available at the right time for prospective students, current students, parents, faculty, staff, and the community.

The Office of Communications works with the Educational Technology Services (ETS) team to provide training sessions that provide members of our campus community with the knowledge and know-how needed to be a site administrator.

3 Training Session Options:

New User Workshop (1 hour)

Users learn the basics on the rules and guidelines of the website, structure and terminology, and get an introduction to creating and editing content in pages. We will cover adding links, images, video, and PDFs. We will also go over page templates, the left menu, and some website tips and tricks.

Current User Refresher Workshop (1 hour)

The refresher course is a workshop that is customized to fit your needs. Our team will look at the pages that you are working on and we will build a training to go over exactly what you need assistance with. Some of the things we could cover are how to create and add pages, add links, images, audio, and PDFs. We will also go over revision history, page templates, the left menu, and some tips and tricks.

Current User Advanced Workshop (varies)

This workshop can be divided up in a few different ways depending on what the attendee needs help with. Based on the need, we will cover the events calendar, tabbed templates, tables (TablePress), and forms (Gravity Forms). The ETS team will look at the website that the attendee is in charge of and create a customized one-on-one training session. The length of this training session will vary based on what the attendee needs to be trained in.

In addition, we are continuously developing a training website with tutorials, instructions, and other helpful information.
