Siteimprove Webinar Recording

Tom Laughlin, Senior Customer Success Manager for Siteimprove, recently presented a webinar for Boise State that discussed updates to the Siteimprove service and answered some of your questions.

Siteimprove is our quality assurance and accessibility reporting tool, and is free to use for our WordPress community. You can use Siteimprove to stay on top of broken links and misspellings, fix any accessibility issues, and keep track of any issues with uploaded documents. You can also see a complete inventory of your content, including information about other university web pages that link to your pages and posts.

New Learning Opportunities

Web Accessibility Specialist Carolyn Quintero is offering a series of short Accessibility Micro-training virtual events through the end of the calendar year.

Topics include ensuring links are accessible, using Siteimprove to keep on top of your broken links, how to properly describe images for accessibility, and best practices for using alternative text.

In addition to these new Micro-trainings, links to recorded training sessions for how to use WordPress and Gravity Forms, along with required web and document accessibility best practices, are available at any time.

Information and registration are available on Webguide.

And, of course, if you want personalized 1:1 assistance with anything WordPress- or accessibility-related, just contact us through the Help Desk.
