Microsoft SharePoint

What is Microsoft SharePoint?

Example of SharePoint siteA SharePoint site is a Web site accessed through your web browser, that provides a collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas, controlled by the Site Owner. It can be used to help groups of people, be they faculty, school or service team to share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

  • Coordinate projects using calendars and schedules.
  • Manage and discuss ideas and review documents or proposals using document libraries.
  • Share information and keep in touch with other people using Wikis and blogs.

Please note: SharePoint is available for staff use only.

Microsoft Office 2010 and 2013 has many features which are designed to interface with SharePoint, with new features due to appear in Office 365 when we go live.

SharePoint sites are dynamic and interactive - members of the site, which you control, can contribute their own ideas and content as well as comment on or contribute to other people's.
