Through animation and presentation software, this course will define how to use SharePoint for collaborating, capturing and organizing “corporate" knowledge (activities, ideas and documents). Demonstrations will be shown to show how Non-IT SharePoint Users in various businesses could program their department's SharePoint site without code.
These demonstrations are based on case studies shared from librarians and information professionals working in universities, associations, government agencies and other business entities in which MS SharePoint had been purchased but improperly implemented in each environment.
This course has great points for anyone who has to use SharePoint. By replacing library terms with the appropriate terms and technical expertise of your business environment, you will have this course tailored for your specialized business environment.
The Problem with SharePoint is that when it is out-of-the-box, it has no specific instructions on how to use it. When properly embedded from within these different business environments, SharePoint is used as a tool to map the activities, ideas and documents of the business, it exists in, to the skills of the staff for current and future collaboration in projects.
At the end of the course, the students will have a fully functional SharePoint site to help them capture and organize their organization's knowledge.
