Classroom Training Guide
SharePoint “Architect” Training
In my organization, SharePoint has been rebranded as “Total Care Compass” and users are classified into groups: Associate (general user, no create or edit permissions), Author (permissions to add and edit items and documents in lists and libraries) and Architect (permissions to create sites, pages, lists, and managed permissions for other users). The original Architect training was provided by a consultant that the organization chose not to have return when a new group of Architects needed to be trained.
Instead, I collaborated with our Information Technology department to create a class specific to the role of Architect in our organization. A four-hour, hands-on class following the training guide was supplemented by practice times in the computer lab. The practice times were staffed by me and the SharePoint analysts from Information Technology. The pdf file linked below is a sample of the manual.
This approach was very successful. The lab times were particularly appreciated by the learners, and all of our learners were able to work with IT to develop their departmental sites, and are independently maintaining them.
