Contribute 3 Essential Training

with Tom Negrino

Video: Welcome

Contribute 3 Essential Training with Tom Negrino teaches you how to use Contribute, in conjunction with Dreamweaver, as a tool for coordinating the Web publishing workflows between designers, developers, and editors. Contribute 3 will be familiar to users of Microsoft Office applications and requires little to no technical expertise. You will learn how Contribute allows you, your less-technical teammates, and your clients to edit a website without the possibility of accidentally "breaking" the site, regardless of the level of Web design experience or familiarity with HTML. These video-based tutorials will teach you how to edit pages, create new pages, create pages based on Dreamweaver templates, add links, images, and tables, and much more.
