Sharepoint Training Videos for End Users FAQ
How long is the training?
The training session is around 1 hour -- but 1 hour of relevant, rich content that is short enough to keep the student interested in the content and long enough to cover the most common and relevant information for the user to get started and become productive in using SharePoint.
How would you describe the structure of the course?
The SharePoint follows a structure that is very much like a real class, with introductions, slides, videos, narration, demos and real life examples and in-depth explanations of important concepts. The course assumes no knowledge of SharePoint as it covers what SharePoint is and builds on top of that by going into examples and practical demos. The course is designed to bring the users up to speed on what SharePoint is and make the equipped to be productive immediately.
What is a user already has some experience in SharePoint, should they go through the training?
We do believe that is worth it for users who have already been exposed to SharePoint to go through his 1 hour class as this class is comprehensive and acts as a good base level for all you SharePoint users. The other good feature about this course is the ability to skip to through what is more relevant to the user by either jumping to different clips or fast forwarding through a clip.
What video format are the training videos in?
The videos are in Flash format. This enables the users to view them over the web or through a web browser.
