Self-Directed Learning Directory

Ferndale Schools uses several 3rd-Party applications to support our mission. Most of these applications offer their own Support Ticketing system and Knowledge Base. Those links can be found below.

To add links to this page, contact the Director of Communications.

Knowledge Base

A knowledge base is a directory of how-tos, walkthroughs, video tutorials, and other self-directed learning resources. Knowledge bases sometimes include user-generated content, which will be moderated by the parent organization.

Support Ticketing

Support Ticketing Systems allow you to send a direct message to the support desk to assist with your issue. To make sure your request is sent to the right person, please check the URL you are viewing at the time of your issue and follow the appropriate link below to reach their support desk. Support links can often be found within the web application itself, as mentioned in your software training.

For Editing Website Content on

The Foxbright Content Management System (CMS) is a website management tool. Through Foxbright, users can add or delete all manner of content from our website. The CMS uses word processing modules to edit directly, and also directories of data that are displayed using pre-constructed formatting modules. All of these different types of content are called Content Blocks.

Occasionally, content will be embedded on a Foxbright page, which means the content is hosted on another website and is shown on our website within an embedding frame. Content placed into Foxbright in this way will need to be edited in the original source location. We try to minimize the use of embedding, because the frame is very rigid and does not adapt to different screen sizes.
