In this course you will learn the essentials for understanding, working with and creating new SharePoint sites. You will work with lists, libraries and web parts to add content to a site and create custom views of the content for specific audiences. You will practice working with collaboration features to create surveys, discussion boards and wiki pages. You will also learn how Office 2010 applications integrate with SharePoint sites. This class will give you, as an end user, a solid understanding and working knowledge of SharePoint sites covering both introductory and intermediate features.
While the SharePoint 2010 interface incorporates the ribbon feature, if your organization uses 2007, you will still benefit from this class. About 80% of the application has not changed, and differences between 2007 and 2010 will be addressed throughout the class.
