The "SharePoint 101" class to introduce users to SharePoint 2013 navigation, core tools, and features for team and project member day-to-day collaboration with SharePoint.
This one-day instructor led course is the first SharePoint course you should take if you have little or no experience using SharePoint. It teaches the student the first things they need to know about SharePoint. You'll learn what SharePoint is, how companies are using SharePoint, the business value of SharePoint, and the basics of using a SharePoint Site. Students will walk away knowing: how to use the out-of-the-box Apps in SharePoint 2013 including Lists and Libraries; the importance of the social features for making data more findable; how search is affected by user interaction via tagging and following will be explained clearly to you. Students will also learn how Search is used to find information.
This class goes into detail about how to use the most common Lists and Libraries. Students will learn how to navigate a SharePoint site, how to work with data in Lists and how to use Libraries to store and collaborate on documents. As an organization creates new Lists to manage business processes, the student will be able to immediately use those new custom lists because they will know the basics for using Lists.
This class is targeted to End Users (team members, project members). Students will learn the basics of SharePoint through questions and answers with a SharePoint subject matter expert. They will have a clear understanding of the value of SharePoint and will be able to hit the ground running immediately following this course. This class covers the basics and stops short of advanced topics, such as those covered in detail in a Site Owner or Power User class. This class is designed for End Users that are not Content Editors or Site Owners.
