It's been a while since my last blog and I thought I would write about something that I am very passionate about. Sharing and making life that little bit easier when working in cross-site or global teams.
There is a lot of talk about LMS's and the focus on the end user but what about the teams who build and develop the content and write the material?
Where do they store it? How do they work on it? Gone are the days of network drives and huge e-mail attachments.
SharePoint is a fantastic collaborative workspace designed to enable teams to work on documents wherever they may be.
With version control, check-out facility, content approval and online meeting workspaces to mention a few, you never have to worry about sending large attachments, clogging up your inbox or waiting for sign-off.
You can book meeting workspaces on your SharePoint site through your Outlook calendar, include any documents and an agenda. It means that the team can get together and manipulate the document as a team and approve it, no e-mail or waiting required!
Working closer with cross-site or global teams has never been easier and ensures that the training you are doing is consistent and the message is not lost.
End result? Great training generated, it can be placed on your LMS and there is focus on the end user.
Have your say on SharePoint. Do you use it? What are your thoughts?
You should post a comment.
