SharePoint Takes CNM Online Options to a Higher Level
The evolution of CNM’s information technology options will take another major step forward with the integration of SharePoint, a popular and dynamic Microsoft online environment that will provide faculty and staff with a new level of online capabilities. Click here to view a SharePoint demo. The user-friendly system can be used by faculty members to develop customized websites with a wide variety of available features, such as blogging templates and RSS feeds. CNM schools, departments and offices can use SharePoint’s much-heralded intranet sites to transform daily work activities into more streamlined, more efficient and more collaborative processes that can be tracked, accessed and discussed online. These features will also allow CNM to further its sustainability efforts by reducing the need for paper.
SharePoint Training Offered by Organizational Learning
Beginning Sept. 12, Organizational Learning will offer a three-hour SharePoint “beginner” training session for faculty members every Friday (9 a.m.-noon or 1-4 p.m.) through the fall term. The training session will include an overview on how SharePoint can enhance teaching efforts. The sessions will also help faculty members learn how to set up the user-friendly SharePoint templates; transfer content from “planet” sites to SharePoint; and use various SharePoint features, such as document libraries, calendars and survey tools. Call Organizational Learning at Ext. 4400 for more information or to schedule a session.
“Intermediate” training sessions for faculty will be added during the fall term. Staff training sessions will be offered through Organizational Learning in the spring term. Those who currently have websites that reside on “planet.cnm.edu” will need to transition their content to SharePoint before mid-January 2009, when the “planet” server will no longer be available.
