Video Recommendations — ✓ 10 - 15 seconds ✓ Avoid excessive movement ✓ Landscape orientation ✓ Choose a video that loops well or shows different shots so that when it loops, it's not jarring ✓ Sound won't be included, so avoid videos only showing people talking Don't have video? — You can download a generic royalty-free video that you believe works well for your school, upload it to Vimeo and add it to your home page.

★ Remember to Save Before Publishing! ★

Each section of a DCT page must be saved before hitting Publish in order for changes on those sections to go live. If you find that you've made changes but they aren't appearing on your website, missing a 'Save' is the most likely reason why. On sections that allow for multiple rows of content, there is an extra step. On a new row, you must 'Add' the row (bottom left), then 'Save' the section, and 'Publish. When making a change to a row, that 'Add' button will instead be 'Update'. 1 - Add/Update 2 - Save 3 - Publish
