SharePoint 2013 Migration and Training

SharePoint 2013 Migration and Training

IT Services are currently migrating SharePoint 2007 sites to SharePoint 2013 in Office 365. Training courses in SharePoint 2013 are available over the summer and we encourage staff to attend these.

What is SharePoint?

Microsoft SharePoint is an online collaboration tool for working with teams and managing shared content, processes and tasks. SharePoint 2013 is significantly different to SharePoint 2007 and provides numerous new features as well as seamless integration with other Office 365 applications.

Where can I get help with SharePoint 2013?

SharePoint Help Site

A selection of user guides and an FAQ are available via the SharePoint Help site. We will continue to add new titles and FAQs over time, and welcome suggestions to tad@abdn.ac.uk if you have a specific topic or question in mind.

Training Courses

If you prefer to work through training materials in a supported classroom environment, we are running a number of Site Member and Site Owner workshop sessions. See below for current availability (updated 6th August). Please note that Site Member training is a prerequisite of the Site Owner course.

Training sessions take place in Taylor A1 (maximum of 10 people per session) or Polwarth CR2 (maximum of 15 people per session). Please respond to tad@abdn.ac.uk with the date/time and session you would like to attend, we will then issue calendar invitations to confirm your booking.
