SharePoint Online is a browser based collaboration tool that provides central file storage, collaboration tools and is the primary intranet for internal websites for the college.
Faculty and staff can share information easily. Some of the most popular sharing features are, file sharing, discussion boards, calendars, newsfeeds, announcements, promoted links, task lists, the ability to easily export data out to Excel and to import Excel spreadsheet into SharePoint, workflows (for automating work processes), custom forms, surveys, blogs, and sharing of ideas and information on SharePoint intranet web pages.
SharePoint Online integrates into our Office 365 environment. You can connect your SharePoint calendars, task lists and other resources to your Outlook desktop application, so you have one location or portal for accessing your collaboration resources.
SharePoint is easy for users to maintain and update their own sites, since it is browser base. Users can easily create their own content and update it.
