SharePoint: Collaboration and Management Software

Microsoft SharePoint is a suite of tools that allow for online collaboration including file sharing, web site creation, data storage and retrieval, and workflow processes. Anyone who would like to have a site collection created for their division, department, college, or workgroup should fill out this online Qualtrics form.

Once your site collection has been created, it can be used to create your own sites where faculty, staff, and students may collaborate electronically. Some of SharePoint's features include:

  • Document Libraries that include versioning of files and a check-in and out feature
  • Picture and slide libraries that show thumbnails of the images contained within
  • Shared tasks, contacts, calendars, announcements, and link lists
  • Online discussion forums
  • Wiki libraries for documentation
  • Subsites for teams, departments, or collaboration around meetings and documents
  • Alerts that email you when things change
  • Workflows that can be created by non-programmers
