Module 1: Content Types

All the information that is stored in SharePoint is some type of content. SharePoint allows user to create their own types of content with custom metadata and functionality. By creating custom types of content, users can take better control over the information in their organization. In this module, students will learn how to create their own Content Types and Site Columns.

Module 2: Workflow

Much of the information in your organization is part of a larger business process. Many of those business processes can be automated through workflows in SharePoint. SharePoint provides five out-of-the-box workflows to assist with common business processes. In this module, students will learn how to configure and use an out-of-the-box workflow.

Module 3: My Sites and Social Computing

My Sites provide a place for individual users to store and share information. SharePoint 2010 also provides features that integrate with My Sites that allow users to tag, rate, and write notes about any information in SharePoint. In this module, students will work with the personalization and social computing features in SharePoint 2010.

Module 4: Rich Media Management

Digital assets (such as images, audio, video, etc…) are becoming more important in today’s workplace. SharePoint 2010 can serve as a repository for these kinds of rich media that makes it easy for users to discover and use items others have created. In this module, students will learn how to store and manage digital assets in SharePoint 2010.

Module 5: Enterprise Search

Although search is nice in SharePoint Foundation 2010, several enhancements make the Enterprise Search in SharePoint 2010 Server much more powerful. In this module, students will learn how to utilize the powerful features of Enterprise Search.

Module 6: Managed Metadata

Organizations are discovering the benefits of tagging information with metadata instead of using folders. Managed Metadata in SharePoint 2010 allows metadata terms to be centrally stored and managed so they can be reused across the SharePoint farm. In this module, students will learn how to apply and use Managed Metadata from an end-use perspective.

Module 7: Publishing and Web Content Management

The Publishing features in SharePoint 2010 make it easy to implement a public web site with web content management or to implement web content management within an intranet scenario. In this module, students will learn how to work with the Publishing Features in SharePoint.

Module 8: Office Web Applications

Although not strictly a feature of SharePoint Server 2010, the Office Web Applications provide a way for users to both view and edit Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote documents entirely in the browser. In this module, students will explore and use many of the features in the Office Web Applications.

Module 9: Audience Targeting

Audience targeting is a feature of SharePoint Server 2010 which allows content to be displayed only to users who are in particular groups, or audiences.  In this module, students will explore how to: add targeted navigational links, add targeted web parts on pages, and how to use the Content Query web part to target individual list and library items to specific groups of users.

Module 10: Document Sets

Document Sets is a powerful way to treat multiple documents as though they were a single document. This can be very helpful whenever a particular business process centers around multiple documents such as a loan document packet, request for proposal (RFP), or other project. In this module, students will explore the Document Set functionality for handling multiple documents as a single entry.

Students should have a familiarity with Windows, a working knowledge of SharePoint Server 2010, and a desire to move up to more advanced SharePoint Server 2010 skills.

Each student will be provided with the following:

  • A custom-developed, comprehensive electronic course manual containing:
    • Presentation slides with speaker notes, and
