Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint. SharePoint is so flexible and the documentation for it is so big and diverse, that a big part of my goals have been to understand the different ways that training organizations are using SharePoint. In my post SharePoint Examples there are some great examples in the comments. In this post, I wanted to capture some of the patterns of use of SharePoint that seem to be emerging.

That certainly goes along with what we’ve done with LearnTrends and what’s going on with social learning. SharePoint We had some very interesting exchange around SharePoint. But I had to share the comment: When I train on SharePoint, the biggest issues is that people don't understand what's possible. I really think that’s a big source of SharePoint Fear and Loathing by Learning Professionals.
