Course Modules

Module 1 provides an overview of the versions and functionalities. It also explains the site collection and site administrator roles.

It falls within the realm of governance and establishing best practices for how SharePoint 2010 is used within the organization. Without establishing these principals within the organization, SharePoint 2010 will fail.

This module will dig deeper into both lists and libraries and will help organizations determine what works best for a given situation.

When a new site is created, the site administrators will need to decide how content is managed within the site. They will also need to consider how sites flow between each other, how information is portrayed, especially at the Welcome Page level, and how content is managed within the site.

When developing SharePoint 2010, it is necessary to create a consistent feel across sites within the site collection. This objective fits in to the Governance aspects of Module 3: Organization and Development of SharePoint 2010 Sites.

This module will cover the different types of Web Parts that are available and the process of embedding and configuring them.

An important advancement within SharePoint 2010 is the inclusion of Social Computing concepts. Many organizations have similar challenges when working with internal talent management, also known as knowledge management.

This module will cover basic information for Site Collection and Site Administrators.

Understanding the types of sites available within SharePoint 2010, as well as the process of creating and understanding navigation, is the foundation for site collection and site managers.

This module will explain how permissions work within a site collection and the tools within SharePoint 2010 that are used to manage and maintain them.

There are a myriad of ways to connect SharePoint 2010 to Microsoft Office 2010, whether it is connecting a SharePoint 2010 document library to Microsoft Outlook, linking an Access database or an Excel spreadsheet to a list in SharePoint 2010, using Microsoft InfoPath to build SharePoint 2010 lists, publishing a Visio diagram to be displayed in the web, or managing Microsoft PowerPoint slides in a SharePoint 2010 slide library.

This module will show methods for searching and configuring views in order to assist SharePoint 2010 users in finding what they need in much less time.

An integral part of SharePoint 2010 for document and information management is the ability to configure Workflows. By default, SharePoint 2010 comes with built-in Workflows to help organizations in a variety of different ways, including; approving a new item or document, collecting feedback from multiple users, or disposing of documents based on compliance policies.

This module covers SharePoint 2010 topics that Site Collection or Site administrators will work with as part of their day to day activities.
