Brochure Theme: Sample Department Group Page


eChalk's new publishing tools will allow you to customize your public group pages to create a unique presence on the Web. With so many layout options and ways to organize your site's content, the possibilities are endless.


In addition to tools like Feed, Calendar, Resources and Discussions, a group page also allows you to restrict editing privileges to certain group members. To create a simple Resource page for your department without tools like Feed, Calendar, or member management, you can view instructions here.


To help you get started, here is a sample public group page layout that you can create for your school or district's departments already using the Brochure Theme. The sample layout below features all the basic content areas you may find on a group page.

This layout contains a photo gallery and department description at the top, calendar events in the middle, and resource links, photos and personnel information at the bottom.


And of course, you can customize and change any parts of this layout to showcase information that's important to your school or district!
