What is SharePoint?

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is an integrated suite of server
capabilities that can help improve organizational effectiveness by providing
comprehensive content management and enterprise search, accelerating
shared business processes, and facilitating information-sharing across
boundaries for better business insight. Additionally, this collaboration and
content management server provides IT professionals and developers with
the platform and tools they need for server administration, application
extensibility, and interoperability

What are the common uses in K-12 setting?

SharePoint has easy and powerful website development. Authoring tools for
most common tasks are built in. In order to use the state’s SharePoint
server, you must request that your default website be converted to a
SharePoint site. http://userid.k12.sd.us

Once the site is converted it is now utilizing SharePoint services which are
built into the Windows 2003 and 2008 environment. You can load
SharePoint 2.0 services through the add/remove programs in your Windows
2003 server. You can also download SharePoint 3.0 from the Microsoft
Website. The latest version is SP 3.0 SP 2.

You should notice the two common items on this page. The welcome user
syntax is in the top right hand corner and the Site Actions tab is just below
the search box. We will be user the Site Actions tab to complete our

If you don’t have the welcome user syntax in the top right hand corner, you
aren’t logged into the SharePoint site. With anonymous access this can be
an issue. If Internet Explorer recognizes your login credentials, it will
automatically give you access to the SharePoint site.

          on the Site Actions Tab

You will notice three options. We will only be
using the first option in this section.

          on the Edit Page Option

You should notice a change in the page layout.
Each section of the page has a way in which to edit the “webpart”.

By using the default layout, you can add and delete the common web parts.
The K-12 default setup has three columns. We will add and delete the eight
common web parts that are used in the K-12 configuration. You can use
Microsoft SharePoint Designer to “Build” SharePoint Sites. This tutorial WILL
NOT talk about this tool. But it is free for educators and students. Search
the Microsoft Site for more details.

Central Administration of Your Own Server

Figure 3 - Web Application

You will use a web application to administer the website. It can be
intimidating, but doesn’t take in depth education to use. There are two main
segments to the administration, Operations and Application Management.
These are not topics for idle discussion. It has taken years to figure out all
the proper configurations. We couldn’t do it justice in such a short period.
It is for another date.
