For organizations that are implementing or continuing to improve SharePoint 2010, the majority of the work is not found in the day-to-day activities of creating and managing SharePoint 2010 objects. It falls within the realm of governance and establishing best practices for how SharePoint 2010 is used within the organization. Without establishing these principals within the organization, SharePoint 2010 will fail.
The first major milestone after Governance is the creation of sites within a site collection. Understanding the types of sites available within SharePoint 2010, as well as the process of creating and understanding navigation, is the foundation for site collection and site managers.
Lab : Site Collections, Top Level Sites and Sites
Most of the administrating within SharePoint 2010 is done at the list or library level. This module will dig deeper into both lists and libraries and will help organizations determine what works best for a given situation.

This module will explain how permissions work within a site collection and the tools within SharePoint 2010 that are used to manage and maintain them.

The heavy integration of Microsoft Office 2010 is one of the main benefits of using SharePoint 2010. There are a myriad of ways to connect SharePoint 2010 to Microsoft Office 2010, whether it is connecting a SharePoint 2010 document library to Microsoft Outlook, linking an Access database or an Excel spreadsheet to a list in SharePoint 2010, using Microsoft InfoPath to build SharePoint 2010 lists, publishing a Visio diagram to be displayed in the web, or managing Microsoft PowerPoint slides in a SharePoint 2010 slide library.
Since a majority of SharePoint 2010 users work out of Outlook most of the day, this integration with SharePoint 2010 helps to focus activities in one or two locations instead of four or five locations. All of these options provide significant improvements over using the products on their own. This module will cover the different ways in which SharePoint 2010 and the Office 2010 Suite work together to expose the full functionality of the products.
