SharePoint Portal Server 2003 End-User Training Kit

Now Available: Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 End-User Training Kit


This kit has been specially designed to ensure that SharePoint Portal Server end-users can effectively use the capabilities of the product to better share information, collaborate with others and find relevant information and resources within their organization.


Keeping in mind the unique needs of beginners and advanced users, the kit provides easy to understand content that can be accessed either as a self-paced study guide or as a quick reference guide. While the kit is scoped to cover SharePoint Portal Server, it is also an effective tool for users of Windows SharePoint Services. The kit also provides illustrations of SharePoint integration with Outlook 2003, FrontPage 2003, and the research task pane in Office 2003 programs.


The kit contains demos that visually guide the user on how to perform various tasks. These demos can be viewed in an auto run mode where the user is visually guided through the various steps or can run in an interactive mode where the user is invited to perform the required action as a way to get hands-on learning on the particular task.

  • Effectively Collaborating on Projects
