Course description

Explore the SharePoint Online area of Office 365. Discover how to access followed sites, see recommended sites, and create and search for sites, then dive into the collaboration capabilities of SharePoint team sites. In addition to learning how to access, create, share and work directly on documents in the SharePoint document libraries, we’ll sync a SharePoint document library to our local device and see how that is similar and different from syncing a OneDrive for Business library on the same device. Lastly, take a look at how to work directly with Office Online and the Microsoft Office Desktop Clients we already use.


This course assumes that students are familiar with the basic use of Windows and common use of the mouse and keyboard. No prior experience with Office 365 is assumed.
