eLearning Blender

The problem is that our SharePoint intranet has grown so immensely that it is now difficult to find information you need in a pinch.

The problem is that we will not be upgrading to SharePoint until the end 0f 08 and we can't afford to wait that long.

Basically it was about how they customise standard SharePoint features and functionality to provide a more interactive ‘online school’ feel to their learning, including the use of discussion, calendar reminders and more. Apparently some people find video hard to present in SharePoint. I use flash video all the time in SharePoint. INTRODUCTION. There’s a lot. Some benefits:-.

Go straight to the finish line

Instead, learning is built into each project though a unique L&D workshop engagement model: Content is produced by experts on the project  (facilitated by a learning consultant), published on the project SharePoint server, and the delivery medium decided by whether the content is conceptual or skills-focused.&#.
