All web content managers should review our online Drupal 8 training course, which should take you twenty to thirty minutes to complete. It will be helpful to wait until you have access to your Drupal 8 site, so that you can follow along with the instructions in the course.
In addition, the following resources can help with learning more about Drupal 8:
LinkedIn Learning training (formerly Lynda) – Available to all Georgia Tech employees and students. Search for 'Drupal 8' after logging into the actual LinkedIn Learning site. (Login must be done via https://linkedinlearning.gatech.edu/ – you cannot log into LinkedIn Learning by going directly to their website!)
Drupal.org Drupal 8 User Guide – This is a very comprehensive guide. As a unit content manager, you should focus on just Chapters 1, 2, 5, and possibly 6. Most of the other chapters will cover functionalities that you will not have access to on our college Drupal websites, but feel free to skim over them and inquire with the college web developer's office about features you think might be useful. Some of them may already be set up on our sites, and some may be available to you on request (e.g. taxonomies, views, etc.)
Georgia Tech Drupal Users Group – Reference guides to Drupal created by Georgia Tech users. Drupal 8 material is minimal right now, but the linked page gives you an overview of what is available throughout the site. Please note that a lot of the material is for technical managers of Drupal 8 sites, so many topics may not apply to site content managers.
