DCN Announces Free Classes for Spring

E-mail List Management with Mailman
An introduction to managing e-mail lists with Mailman. This class
offers tips on the management of this useful online tool.  It is
mainly, but not exclusively,
for groups that manage lists via the DCN mail server. If your
organization increasingly relies on the Internet and email to
communicate among project
committees, membership or other constituents, you may already be using
or need to learn to use e-mail lists. Mailman is a popular and
effective list
management system that DCN freely offers to community groups and
provides instruction on.

Thursday 3/27/08
SimpleSites 2.0 Website Creation
Training for community organizations using DCN's easy SimpleSites,
this session will cover DCN's SimpleSites version 2, a powerful
toolkit developed by the DCN Web Team.   In this class, you can learn
to start building your own website even without HTML knowledge or web
authoring experience.  Examples are available at

Thursday 4/10/08
