Open Text Content Management (Module Q)

UAlbany uses the 'RedDot' Open Text Content Management System (RedDot CMS) to help departmental web managers to add content and edit content on their sites without using web design software.These courses are intended for those whose websites have migrated or are about to migrate to RedDot. If you are new to RedDot and your site is in the University's 'old look', please make an appointment for Course Q01. To learn more about using RedDot using the current UAlbany templates, chose workshops Q02, Q03 or Q04.


Currently we are only offering Workshop Q02 on an as requested basis.  We can offer it to small groups or one on one as needed. Click the link below this to email Tom bessette to set up a session.
