Getting Started as a USU OU Campus User
New to using OU Campus at USU to manage your program, department or college websites? The IT Web Team is here to help you get started. Gaining access and getting started is a multi-step process.
Setting Up Your User Account
User accounts are available to USU employees (full-time, part-time, or student) who have editing responsibility for an OU Campus website.
Before you can start editing a USU OU Campus website, you need to have access granted by creating a user account. You set that up by having the program supervisor (often a department head or their assistant) contact the IT Web Team by phone at (435) 797-8551 or by email to email@example.com. We will need to know the following information for each person who will be actively managing the website content:
- URL for the existing web site. If access to only a portion of the site is needed, we need to know which section of the site for which content manager will need access.
- A-number (there is no access to OU Campus without a valid A#)
- E-mail address
- Phone Number
Initial On-line Training
To help new content managers get familiar with OU Campus, they are required to take the on-line training through the USU Learning System. Your hiring paperwork needs to be complete, and you need to set your preferred email in Banner, before you can access this training. Please note that you will need to access this using Chrome or Safari, not with Firefox. If you experience any problems with your access, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you've completed the on-line training, the next step is to meet with a member of the IT Web Team to answer any specific questions and review the available resources for content managers. To set that up, content managers email email@example.com or call (435)797-8551.
As a member of the USU Web Community, you have many opportunities for continuing education. You are invited to participate in the annual USU Web Conference (held in May), and any of the group trainings offered throughout the year.
As always, you can reach out to the IT Web Team at any time to get guidance on web page design, effectively using available resources, and any other questions that you have.
