This initial hands-on class is the first of a two-part course designed for content contributors or business stakeholders. Part lecture and part hands-on exercises, the class focuses on the use of CommonSpot from the end user's perspective, teaching users how to effectively create and manage all types of content within your CommonSpot site.

Students will walk away with an in-depth understanding of the CommonSpot user interface. They will learn how to create and manage pages, upload images and documents, and create external URLs. They will also review some of CommonSpot’s most commonly used elements, understand how to use templates, learn how to leverage metadata for content organization, as well as learn the basics of workflow and collaboration. Finally, students will learn how to use CommonSpot’s tools to quickly find and access content, keep content fresh, and manage site assets.
