Join us for ongoing education about how to create Gaelorious webpages.
Old Calendar going away
A friendly reminder that the old school calendar (www.stmarys-ca.edu/calendar/63) and old events created before the switch to the new format will be deleted from the system at the end of January. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Brian Foley at brf5 or x4846.
Layout tab help
The Layout tab in the edit screen can be a bit daunting. Never fear! We're here to help. We've put together a new Salli tutorial that will guide you in understanding how some of the features under the layout tab work: www.stmarys-ca.edu/salli-tutorials/managing-the-layout-tab
And stay tuned for a future open demo in January on how to utilize this feature in Salli.
New faculty profiles
A fresh new version of the faculty profiles has just launched in Salli! Training sessions for faculty, or anyone else maintaining faculty profiles, will be held in January and in the Spring. This will be a hands-on session where faculty can begin adding to their profile in the new system. Stay tuned for upcoming dates!
Social media help
Have a big event that's perfect for some social media love? Check out our tips on using social media to raise the profile of your event: www.stmarys-ca.edu/college-communications/guidelines-resources/social-me...
Looking for pictures?
Need photos of activities on campus, like a good shot of the Chapel, the Moraga hills or students? The College Communications Dept now offers an online tutorial on how to use any of the 800 campus images: www.stmarys-ca.edu/college-communications/guidelines-resources/campus-im.... If you have photos you think could be added to the pool, please contact Karen Kemp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New area names
Some areas of the website changed their names, thereby changing their URLs. If there's a chance you link to these areas of the site, double check that your links to these areas were not broken in the process:
- Women's Studies changed to Women's and Gender Studies
- International Area Studies changed to Global and Regional Studies
- Liberal & Civic Studies changed to Justice, Community and Leadership
New areas include:
- MS in Business analytics - www.stmarys-ca.edu/ms-in-business-analytics
- Joseph L. Alioto Rec Center - www.stmarys-ca.edu/joseph-l-alioto-recreation-center
- MFA in Dance - www.stmarys-ca.edu/mfa-in-dance Annual Report - www.stmarys-ca.edu/annual-report-2013-14
We will continue to provide updates on changes made to area names.
Salli User Group Meetings & Resources
We want each meeting and the resources we create to be useful for all of you.
For example, we are creating detailed descriptions of each of the Layout tab options for content types such as Pages, including how they may be used, best practices for their use and what they look like when in place.
Another example is a page with links to examples from around our SMC site demonstrating best practices and interesting approaches to displaying content.
Let us know if there are other sections of the tutorials you would like us to expand or create. And let us know if there are topics you would like us to discuss at upcoming meetings.
Upcoming Salli User Group Meetings
All faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend our sessions. Feel free to come to any and all sessions that interest you. You can also access a schedule of meetings in Google Calendar.
