(MUSIC). Welcome to SharePoint Online Essential Training. My name is Gini Courter. In this course, we will be taking a look at the features of Microsoft SharePoint Online, and we'll begin with basic questions like, what is SharePoint, anyway? We'll look at how to work in team sites, web sites that are created so you can collaborate with your colleges. You'll learn then how to edit, and share, and save documents in this share point environment.

But we'll also see how to work with lists, and libraries, and how you can use the social features of share point, so that you can collaborate with you coworkers in brand new ways. We'll take on some more advanced topics, like how we can create content types and document sets that are specific to your organization, and its work. We'll also take a look at how we can automate work flows, to make the work life easier for you and your colleagues. We have a lot to learn in this course, so let's get started.
