Working with Apollo Basic & Writing for the web
This course is intended for employees who (occasionally) have to make changes to existing pages. The course is offered online and participants can follow it at a time appropriate to them and at their own pace.
- From December 12 2020 the Apollo Basic editor replaces the Prospero inline editor.
If you want to know more about the new editor, check out the project page Replacing website editors.
In the context of the restructuring of the UG website, a stricter distinction will be made in the activities and access rights of the editors. Successful completion of the course is a condition for obtaining editing rights as a reviewer on the website. After completing the course you will be signed up for the newsletter web editors and your W3 webmaster will be notified.
UG Staff: € 75
