Training

We run three types of training course for the platform. See below for information about each type, and view the listings on the right to book specific sessions.

Hands-on demo

We run regular termly interactive demos of the Oxford Mosaic web platform at IT Services Banbury Road.

The sessions consist of:

  • Quick introduction to what Oxford Mosaic is and what it offers to help you easily build high quality websites
  • Showcase of the new websites just launched on the platform
  • Tour of the editing interface to demo how sites are easily built and maintained
  • A hands-on session for you to login to a demo site and try uploading content and have a play yourself
  • A Q&A to answer questions

You can book to attend by emailing oxfordmosaic@it.ox.ac.uk. Demos are free.

Drop-in Workshops

To provide support to users of the Oxford Mosaic platform we run termly drop-in Workshops in the Isis Room, IT Services Banbury Road.

The workshops are working sessions for you to come and ask members of the Mosaic team in person about queries you have regarding the setup or content editing of your site. Sessions are held in our training rooms with a suite of PCs which can be used for you to login to and work on your Mosaic site.

The workshops run flexibly, as is most helpful for the needs of attendees, organised loosely around the following structure:

  1. An initial Q&A session to demonstrate answers to queries raised in advance and to respond to questions from the floor
  2. A supported editing session where team members will be on hand to assist you as you edit your site

You are welcome to attend one or both parts of the session and to come or leave at whatever time is convenient to you. It will be helpful, but not essential, if queries can be sent in advance so that we can group together common questions for dealing with in the Q&A session. It is not essential to book but we would appreciate it if you could let us know if you expect to attend.

To book on a session or enquire about future sessions, please email oxfordmosaic@it.ox.ac.uk. Workshops are free.

Mosaic: good practice in web design

New! The IT Learning Centre has developed a special course to support users of Oxford Mosaic to build great websites with the toolkit. The course is a three hour in-person session held at IT Services, 13 Banbury Road. The intended audience are Site Owners or Site Administrators responsible for setting up or redesigning a website in Oxford Mosaic. It will be useful if course attendees have already attended a demo of Mosaic, or otherwise have some Mosaic editing experience on an existing site. It would also be useful for attendees to have read our guide on planning your website. The course runs at least once a term and during the Long Vacation, with additional sessions depending on demand.

Site Owners creating a new site on Mosaic may attend the course once free-of-charge. Bookings for other site administrators or editors is subject to a small fee. All Site Owners will be assigned a Voucher in the course booking system to claim their free place. This will appear automatically and Site Owners should click to apply the Voucher when booking to avoid a charge being applied.
