What is the course about?
This course is about helping you become a better collaborator and team player at work. You will focus on how to make the most of One Drive and SharePoint to enable more efficient and creative communication while also keeping on top of this process. You will learn about the differences between the two apps, what they are used for, when to use one rather than the other and how to combine their use. You will focus on how to share and collaborate on documents while keeping track of files through document libraries, who has worked on what when, what the status is of different files, and how to sync them across different devices and software. You will also look at how to combine your work on SharePoint and One Drive with Teams and Outlook. By the end of this course, you will be more much confident in how best to work with colleagues on different documents and how to store the results.
This is a live online course. You will need:
- Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
- A computer with microphone and camera.
