Cascade Training

Cascade Server is a web content management system that provides a CSU, Chico-branded and easy-to-update framework for your office or department site. Cascade training takes about three hours and is required before you can edit campus websites.

We offer Cascade Server Training for users in the old campus template (2.0) and Cascade Training for 3.0 Site Editors for content maintainers of sites that have migrated to Campus Web 3.0.

Which Training Should I Attend?

Is my site 2.0 or 3.0?

Website Footers

An easy way to distinguish a 2.0 from 3.0 website is to look at the website footer.

  • 2.0 websites use a beige colored footer
  • 3.0 websites use a gray colored footer

Look at Your Site on Mobile

Another easy way to determine which framework your website is using is to open the site using your smartphone. The 3.0 framework is built to be mobile friendly meaning 3.0 sites will look much better on mobile devices.
