EdWeb training

Details of the EdWeb training we provide, what it covers and how to book a place.

EdWeb training is mandatory for all EdWeb users who will be managing or editing a University of Edinburgh website.

We run regular sessions available to all staff. We can also provide training at your department or site, on request.

What you will learn

Our EdWeb training session covers all the basic tasks you will need to perform in order to publish and maintain your EdWeb website, including:

  • an introduction to EdWeb
  • step-by-step guides on how to edit existing webpages and create new content
  • advice on using features in EdWeb such as content for reuse and images

EdWeb training resources

In addition to the training sessions, the EdWeb support wiki and demonstration site provide useful information and guidance to support your management of your EdWeb website.
