Learn the advanced content types of KU's content management system (CMS), Drupal. This course expands on the CMS Essentials course with hands-on practice adding more advanced content types to the site and working with blocks.

In this hands-on workshop, you'll act as an editor in a sandbox website and be guided through the more advanced content types such as Person Profile, Image Slide/Gallery, and working with Blocks. We will also have some refresher on creating general content pages that are covered in the CMS Essentials course.
