One of the most frequent complaints that we've received on this blog and elsewhere is the lack of end user training material for WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007. Although there are some companies offering training courses and a book or two focused on the end user, our customers want and deserve to get something directly from us.
The SharePoint End User Training Kit is our offering, and it's available at no cost!
The initial release of the kit includes training content for SharePoint's collaboration capabilities. To be added over the next couple of months are additional modules covering portals and personalization, enterprise content management, search, business processes, and business intelligence. All of the content will have been written by the Office Online User Assistance team.
The kit will be provided with two deployment options. The first, which is available now, is via the SharePoint Learning Kit ("SLK"), which is SCORM 2004 conformant e-learning delivery and tracking application built as a WSS 3.0 solution. With the SLK, IT personnel can control the look and feel of the training kit, matching it to corporate branding standards, and administrators can add or remove content and customize it as necessary. The SLK also provides a reporting function that shows which topics have been completed and by whom.
The SharePoint End User Training Kit will also have a standalone deployment option, which can be installed on a PC and used by an individual. This version of the kit will be available within the next few weeks.
For more information about the kit and instructions on how to obtain it, please go to our end user focused "Get the 'Point" blog.
