SharePoint - A Quick Intro on How to Work with a SharePoint Site

So, you want to learn Microsoft SharePoint. Maybe you're just starting out with SharePoint.

Or, maybe your office has been using and you figure it's finally about time to get to know what SharePoint is all about. Whatever your specific reasons are for enrolling in this course, you've come to the right place to get a quick high level overview of Microsoft SharePoint.

I've made this course short and too the point. The topics covered in this course are targeted at beginners of SharePoint. In one sitting you can quickly get up to speed on SharePoint basics and a little more. Topics you'll cover during this course, include;

I've been teaching SharePoint since the 2003 version and I have come to realize that building a solid foundation within SharePoint is something that a lot of office workers have missed out on. Typically, someone's first experience in SharePoint is like having a surprise dentist appointment, where you suddenly wake up in the dentist chair, not sure how you got there and realize you didn't brush your teeth that morning.

Enroll in this course and I will quickly get you up to speed on what SharePoint is all about and cover the basics. This foundation will prepare you to take a deeper dive into more on SharePoint.

Section 1: Introduction to Course and Course Topics

This lecture will introduce you to the course topics.

  • Intro to Microsoft SharePoint
  • Working with SharePoint Lists and SharePoint Libraries
  • Other SharePoint Terminology
  • Other SharePoint Tools to help you become more productive

I found one of the best ways to learn something new is to practice the concepts you are learning.

If you do not currently have a SharePoint site setup there are a couple of ways that you can practice the concepts you will be learning throughout this course.

  1. If you have a working SharePoint environment at work, ask the SharePoint administrator if they can setup a practice site, a Sandbox, for you to practice with.
  2. Sign up for a one month subscription to Microsoft SharePoint online. Use this site to practice with and then cancel at anytime. There are even free trials that you can use.
