Online Tutorials

We recommend you watch these self-paced, online training modules before you come to our instructor-led class, or after you have set up your website so that you have access to UBCMS and can immediately practice your new skills.

Please note - these tutorials were created with an earlier version of our CQ content management system.  

While the basic concepts they cover remain true, the interface looks different and some components are in different positions.

In addition:

·         Workflow has not yet been implemented.

·         Undo function has been added.

·         Login process has changed slightly (more details).

Please treat these tutorials as a general overview, and not as an exact road map for the UBCMS.  We encourage you to supplement them with either our instructor-led or self-paced training to get the latest information.
