Website Training Resources
Beginning in 2023, Escambia County Public Schools will use the Blackboard Web Community Manager (WCM) content management system to produce and maintain all of its websites. Sitekeepers will be able to manage departmental websites within the district site, and Tech Coordinators and other designated sitekeepers will create and manage websites for each school in the district. A comprehensive site template has been chosen that offers degrees of customization for each school while maintaining visual and operable consistency throughout the district.
This site has been compiled and created to empower sitekeepers as they create and manage ECPS websites. Technical support is available by submitting a ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Quick Start Guide has been prepared to help you update your pages quickly.
ECPS Website Creation Training Presentation
This video was recorded during a training session for the new ECPS department websites, but much of the information applies to building and managing the new school websites, as well.
Blackboard Training Videos
Web Community Manager Video Series - This video series contains a collection of videos divided by WCM user type. Each video is designed to be a mini-lesson running between two and seven minutes. Videos are produced and updated on a regular basis. The video content is available for informational and educational purposes only. All videos are owned by Anthology + Blackboard.
The playlists for each level of Editor and Director cover introductory instructional videos at the beginning of the playlist, then become more specialized.

Older Blackboard Manuals
The following manuals were created in 2016 with the previous Web Community Manager interface, but most of the information remains the same. The ECPS Website Creation and Maintenance manual will have the most up-to-date interface and information.
