I would like to highlight a few points about my association with Besant Technologies. The faculty members out here are super supportive. They make you understand a concept till they are convinced you have gotten a good grip over it. The second upside is definitely the amount of friendliness in their approach. I and my fellow mates always felt welcome whenever we had doubts. Thirdly, Besant offers extra support to students with a weaker understanding of the field of IT.
SharePoint Course Syllabus
Module 1: Introduction to SharePoint 2013 – 3 hours
The class assumes that the student is seeing SharePoint for the very first time, so no prior SharePoint knowledge is necessary. Students will begin by learning what SharePoint is conceptual—and how information is accessed in SharePoint—by exploring an existing SharePoint site. During the first two days, students will build an identical SharePoint environment.
Questions that will be answered in this module include:
- What is SharePoint 2013?
- How do I navigate pages, sites, lists, and libraries in SharePoint 2013?
Module 2: Document Libraries – 3 hours
Most of the information in most organizations is stored in file shares and users’ “My Documents” folders on their local computer. Document Libraries in SharePoint build on the file share paradigm that most users are familiar with but add a number of significant improvements. In this module, students will learn the role that Document Libraries play in a SharePoint site by adding documents to a library, categorizing documents with folders and metadata, and creating custom views. Questions that will be answered in this module include:
- How do I upload single and multiple documents to SharePoint?
- How do I drag and drop documents into SharePoint?
- What is a Library? How do I create one?
- What is metadata and why is it different (and better) than folders?
- How do I create a column on a Library?
- How do I validate the information in a column?
- How do I create views of a library?
Module 3: Basic Document Management – 2 hours
In this module, students will build on what they have learned about Document Libraries and explore the document management functionality. Students will explore the features that allow SharePoint to automatically create and store both minor and major versions of documents such that previous versions can be viewed or restored if needed. Students will also use the content approval and check-in and check-out functionality, along with the Recycle Bin, to restore documents that have been deleted. Questions that will be answered in this module include:
- How do major and minor versioning work in SharePoint?
- How do I create draft versions of a document?
- How do I publish a document?
- How do document check-in and check-out work?

Lists and Libraries aren’t the only things users can add to their SharePoint sites. There are many other applications (or apps) available that can dynamically display information (such as news, weather, or RSS feeds), display information in your lists and libraries more creatively (such as with charts, graphs, or maps), manage your SharePoint sites, integrate with other web sites and social networks, or almost anything else you can imagine. Questions that will be answered in this module include:

- What are free apps and what are paid apps?
- How do I purchase apps from the SharePoint Store?

Module 7: Creating and Managing Sites – 3 hours
SharePoint is a collection of web sites. Each site has a collection of lists and libraries that store the information end-users interact with and use. In this module, students will learn about the various site templates that are available and how to create their own sites and subsites. They will also learn how to manage their sites with the Site Settings page. Questions that will be answered in this module include:
