Introduction to Stanford Sites Syllabus

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 monitored by UIT and 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 the Stanford Sites Drupal CMS, common site-building tasks, and resources for taking the next steps. It is not hands-on training, but you can follow along by reviewing the steps below on your own Drupal site during the session.

We use a training session demo site during the class.
