Microsoft SharePoint (2016) - The Basics of Team Sites

At Parkland College, many departments and committees utilize SharePoint Team Sites to organize and share documents and data. This article links to a video tutorial in LinkedIn Learning that gives an overview of the application and covers the basics such as navigation, opening and editing documents, coauthoring an Office document, and sharing and managing documents. The latter portion of the tutorial goes into more advanced features such as working with apps, syncing a list with Outlook, and creating your own Team Site but you can pick and choose the individual lessons that most suit your needs.
