Welcome to the Cascade Beginner Self-Paced Course. This course is meant for users at Rowan University who will be responsible for keeping Rowan's websites up to date. Rowan hosts websites on a content management system called Cascade CMS. Cascade allows non-technical users to quickly become content contributors and build web content with zero code. The self-paced course is interactive and you will learn how to use Cascade alongside the video. 

You should already have access to log into Cascade CMS. Please visit to log into Cascade. Your username is your current Rowan NetID (case sensitive) and password (the same password for your computer). If you cannot access Cascade, please contact your site's content ambassador. Content ambassadors are responsible for maintaining the content integrity of their site and provisioning each user's access to the site. Please visit for a full list of ambassadors. You must view the recorded video in the course from their computer in order to work along with the training.
