Course Detail

IT002 - SharePoint Site Owner

Please be aware that this is a follow on training session to the End User (IT001) training.

This course cannot be taken without taking the End User training.

SharePoint is a secure software to store, organise, share, and access Queen Mary information from almost any device. The tool enables collaboration and sharing within QM and with external partners.
OneDrive is the Microsoft cloud service that provides users with personal storage for their data.

Due to the events surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, this has become an online training. The importance of being able to share and access Queen Mary information remotely in a secure way has been highlighted by the Coronavirus pandemic.

The training covers what users are expected to know in order to enable them to setup SharePoint sites.
Training agenda and workbooks will be sent out to you prior to the online training.

To complete the online training, please ensure:
• That your workspace has suitable broadband capacity to complete the training
• You can access remote tool hardware/software and access and the QMUL SharePoint and OneDrive Training Paper
• You have a suitable device to work from, a laptop or personal computer. Tablets are not advised for this training.
• You are undisturbed for the period of the training, as stated above. Regular breaks will be built into the training timetable.

If you have any further specific queries on SPOD training please email Jack Hanson
