Website access and training

We will provide access to your staff members who will be responsible for adding local content to your new website. There are two levels of access:

  1. Author - can make changes, but cannot publish them live to the public.
  2. Approver - can approve author changes which will publish them live, and also make/publish their own changes.

The principal can add and remove staff at any time within the Access Management Utility (AMU).

  • Email address of staff who require 'author' access.
  • Email address of staff who require 'approver' access.

Your staff will need training if they haven't used AEM before. Find out more about training.

Important to note

  • This platform is for school websites only.
  • To set up official school email, please call EDConnect on 1300 32 32 32. 
  • Provisional school names cannot be accepted as the URL and other behind the scenes configuration has to be set up in line with the actual school name.

Once you have started

The process of working on your site and going live is as follows:

  1. Provided we have the final domain name (based on the school email address), your domain name will already be created by us, along with other supporting configuration steps.
  2. Your site is ready for your authors and/or approvers to begin adding content.
  3. You can send the site live when the content work is complete.
  4. Refer to Your site on Google for more information on getting your site appearing in Google.
