Overview

The Explore page is available from the site banner at the top of the page. You can browse this page to explore newly created content across all groups with content you can view. 

Teasers

On the left is a browsing area that displays a summary view (teasers) for recently created content. The icons in the upper left of a teaser entry are indicators that tell you about some of the attributes of a content item. Buttons at the lower right of each teaser are action buttons. Hover over an indicator or action button with your mouse to see the meaning for your particular item.

Filtering and Sorting

At the top of this region are tabs which filter the content by type. Clicking on the "Posts" tab, for example, will limit the listing to only posts. The links directly under the tabs are used to limit and sort site content further.

Contributors

On the right are avatars for some of the people who have most recently contributed to the site. You can click on the pictures to view that person's profile. Only people who have uploaded a real picture will appear here (not our default paintings that are randomly assigned to new users).

Training Calendar

There is also a block listing upcoming training opportunities. Participating institutions list upcoming sessions that may or may not be open outside their institutions. Use the links at the bottom of the block to navigate to a searchable system-wide calendar of events.
