Course description

Microsoft SharePoint 2010 brings a wealth of new features that will help any company be more productive and efficient. But like any new application, there is a need to train employees on how to use it. This course will train those employees and cover many of the new features for SharePoint. The course starts with an explanation of what SharePoint sites are and how to use them and includes topics like team collaboration, wikis and search. The course will then cover many items that a power user can do, like how to create sites, pages and build solutions without using code. Working with Microsoft Office and SharePoint Designer in SharePoint 2010 are also covered.
