Overview of Service
SharePoint Online is a platform for creating websites in Microsoft 365. SharePoint Sites store documents and other types of content using Libraries and Lists. When you want share information within your department (e.g.: an intranet) or with larger audiences, such as all faculty, staff or students, a SharePoint Communication Site is an excellent choice. Management of the Site is delegated to one or more individuals within the department for which it’s created, making it easy to directly control permissions and access as needed.
SharePoint also serves as the storage service behind Microsoft Teams. For each Team, a SharePoint Team Site is created to give the Team a place to collaborate on documents and content. These Team Sites are automatically accessible only to members of the Team, so they can work together easily and securely.
On the SharePoint Workshop Resources page, you can view training materials and access tutorials and resources from Microsoft related to SharePoint Online.
