Introduction to Stanford Sites

Main content start

Stanford Sites is a free, self-service tool for building and managing websites for university work. It offers design flexibility, integration with Stanford systems, and substantial functionality through Drupal. Websites are hosted in the cloud on a system designed for fast performance and high availability.

The following is the outline for the Introduction to Stanford Sites training session. This session will walk you through the terminology we use when talking about Stanford Sites, common site building tasks, and resources for taking the next steps.

This is not a hands-on training, but you can walk through these steps along with us on your own Drupal site if you wish.

We will be using a training session demo site for this training.
